Delivery Options

Our residential customers can choose one of two delivery options:

  • Scheduled deliveries (recommended): We monitor your tank and our drivers make automatic deliveries based off your usage. They also top off your tank before the start of the heating season. This is the most convenient option for you since you don’t have to worry about monitoring your tank gauge.
  • Will-call: You are responsible for checking your gauge and scheduling a delivery before your tank is empty. We recommend you place an order when your gauge reads at 25 percent to avoid emergency refill fees. Click here to learn about emergency refill fees that can be incurred when using will call service

Contracts

Belgrade Cooperative offers a number of options for contracting propane for members. This is a seasonal event that takes place for a two week session in May and a second two week session in August. **
  • Prepay: Under this option, a customer can pay in full for contracted gallons that are locked in at the current futures price for delivery between Nov. 1 and April 30. The number of contracted gallons is based on the customer’s past consumption history. If a customer surpasses all of their contracted gallonage, they are charged the current market price for additional gallons.
  • Deposit contract: Similar in terms to the prepay option, the deposit contract requires customers to put down a prepayment of 20 cents per gallon for contracted gallons that are locked in at the current futures price for deliveries made between Nov. 1 and April 30. The customer is then billed for the remaining price per gallon upon delivery.
  • Budget contract: Customers who use this option are billed for their contracted gallons in 12 equal monthly installments, beginning in May and ending in April of the following year. Customers can start using gallons earlier under this option.
Customers with COD accounts can call into the office for more information on placing an order.
