Recent feedback about the bulk oil buying scheme
"Thank you and your colleagues for all your work on this – a great success."
A member’s response to news of potential increase in oil prices… "I have to say when you send out emails like this, you reinforce the importance of the third sector and buy oodles of loyalty due to the professional and, of equal importance, honesty of this kind of communication."
"I got home from work yesterday to find that oil had already arrived! I was pleased! Thank you! All the best."
"Thank you …. Imagine my surprise at 8.30 this morning , the oil supplier arrived and filled up my tank ! I wasn't expecting them until a few days’ time . Their delivery note had " Fill tank urgent” marked on it, and they obviously respected your instructions and must have put me at the top of their list . I am most impressed."
"Good morning, I have just received good cheerful delivery service from the oil supplier who squeezed in 755 Litres. Many thanks to you and your colleagues for your help."

Feedback in 2012
'You have created a fantastic scheme, and put in a lot of work that is appreciated by us all - thank you! August 2012
"Just wanted to say thanks for doing a great job – placed our first order through you last month for heating oil and saved over £120! (on 700 litres) And it came from the supplier we had previously been using who had previously been charging us 80p per litre." D.W. - March 2012
"Just to let you know that I have received my first ever order from ORCC Trading and the whole process has been a delight.
"I simply did as you directed and the delivery arrived promptly (which was a great relief as I was down to less than two inches in the tank!). Best of all it looks as if my saving was almost £93 against my earlier supplier."
Feedback received during the first year December 2010/11
“We are really pleased to be the 500th member of this scheme and surprised that given the amazing savings and tough times there aren't more members already. Every single person with an oil tank should race to get on board, we are kicking ourselves we have not joined earlier after discovering what savings are to be made. Recently we heard of a fellow villager paying 77ppl from their regular supplier and on the Bulk Oil Scheme we have just been quoted 54.55 ppl. It really speaks for itself - you can quote me on that!”
"People are very impressed with the saving I made and also the service…”
