"I was so happy with your new boiler installation job, from start to finish, that I just had to share my wonderful experience with you and make sure that everyone involved got the recognition for excellent service that they totally deserve."

- Mrs. Harder, Long Island

"I wanted to thank you for your extra effort to fill my tank with heating oil during the major 2010 winter storm. I know you had to drag your lines through snow and the woods. I was only able to dig you a little path and for my thanks, have lunch on me!"

- Harmon Miller, Owings Mills

"With the economy being what it is, I did some comparative shopping and looked into switching my account but also decided that I needed additional information from Petro. I called your office and your customer service representative, Jesse was wonderful! He researched my account, explained options, supplied information and was courteous, patient, knowledgeable and kind throughout. He told me of your website and advised me where to find answers to certain questions I had and I have decided to remain with you for another year as a Petro Ceiling Plan customer. I've been in customer service my entire adult life and know how difficult it can be but Jesse seemed to have a genuine interest, not only in keeping me as a customer but keeping me as a satisfied customer. When someone exceptional comes along, I feel recognition is warranted. That I remain a Petro customer, is all thanks to people like Jesse."

- Beth Shavitz, A Petro customer for 32 years

"I'll never go with anyone else. They came right out. My husband wanted to tip them but they wouldn't take anything. Not one dime. I'll never go with anyone else but them. These were the nicest guys in the world!"
