If you’re in the heating oil and propane business, you know that customer service is everything. Sometimes the customers can overwhelm you with questions, but no matter how simple or complicated their questions are, never brush them off because that will make them dissatisfied with your business.
Instead, provide them with a virtual customer service representative who understands the heating gas and propane industry. If you are not sure if this is a good idea, here are five reasons why you should get your customers’ heating oil & propane questions answered 24/7.

1. Time-Saving

It may be overwhelming to spend a lot of time answering calls from customers who want help, like changing their appointment date or address information. However, if they can call through an automated system, they’ll be able to get their questions answered quickly and efficiently. This will save you and your customers time, allowing you more time for other important tasks like sales calls or marketing events.

2. Allows You to Provide More Specialized Answers When Needed

If you have multiple clients, and one client has specific propane tank questions, it can be difficult for you to accommodate their request. A virtual receptionist can help you answer your client’s questions so they never have to wait for you to provide a personalized answer. This helps keep your business running smoothly and ensures everyone is happy with the service.

3. Better Understanding of Propane Safety 

Propane safety questions are more likely to arise in this business line. A virtual receptionist may be able to:
  • Answer questions about how to safely use your equipment
  • Provide information about different types of fuel tanks and how they are best suited for different applications
  • What precautions must be taken when filling or topping off your tank

4. Increased Customer Satisfaction

While increasing customer satisfaction levels may seem an obvious benefit, it isn’t as easy as it sounds. Most businesses will find that they don’t have enough time or resources to provide quality customer services that meet their and customers’ needs. By hiring a virtual receptionist, however, you’ll be able to handle all of their needs, such as providing replacements when the propane tank is empty, without making them wait longer than necessary.

5. Enhance the Relationship with Your Customers

A good relationship with your customers is essential for any business, especially an oil heating or propane business. By hiring a virtual receptionist, you will be able to build stronger ties with them by providing them with personalized customer service based on their needs and interests.


Virtual customer service comes in handy when you want your customers’ heating gas and propane questions answered. With such a service in place, you can answer your customers’ propane safety questions and refill their gas on time when the propane tank is empty.
