Ensuring you have insurance


This letter will hopefully be a warning to anyone who has an obsolete underground oil tank on their property.

I had one, but it is now gone. I was preparing to switch my home insurance to BCAA, but found they would not insure me as long as an oil tank was on my property.

Many thanks to Matthew at Tri-City Tank Tech, who came down for a site visit. He explained the procedures and we agreed to a date. Everything was scheduled in two-hour increments: The digging, tank truck to clean out inside of the tank, pulling tank out, cutting into pieces and taking away, a visit by the environment people, etc.

Once it was OK to fill in, the dirt that was taken out was replaced, four tons of washed sand was “blown” in, then approximately six yards of screened topsoil spread over, and grass seed was planted.

In one complete day, it was all done.

A warning to anyone who still has a tank underground, check your insurance policy or check with your agent.

You may find that in a catastrophe, your insurance is null and void.
