Oil Barrel Question

by Vicki
(Bramber, Nova Scotia)

The inspector came by and had a look around and said our oil barrel was a little rusty looking and should be replaced. My husband got a good deal on an oil barrel that still has a good date on it. He installed it and now my insurance company will not renew our insurance because they say no company will insure a used barrel. Is this the case? Good oil barrels should be sent to the dump? How can I check to make sure this is policy?


Used Oil Tank And Insurance


Hi Vicki,
There have been some huge claims after oil spills from tanks in homes. So insurers are extremely cautious. Some won't even insure a home with oil heat. Most will, but have strict rules.

You might find a willing insurer. But most likely you will have to get a brand new tank.
