Union County Oil Tank Removal

Oil tanks installed over three decades ago in Westfield, Union or Plainfield could very well be leaking right under your feet! These older Union County oil tanks are made of bare steel fabrication, a material that makes the tank welcome corrosion. Corrosion can lead to a good possibility for spills and leaks from that tank and your property seeing a whole host of problems in polluted soil, air or groundwater. A tank removal, remediation (clean-up) or even abandonment (unable to remove the tank it is rendered safe and filled) can take time and cost money.

Steve Rich is a great group of professionals that make a messy job less stressful. They took care of two of my commercial properties. One was an easy oil tank removal and the other was not so easy. There was remediation work that needed to be done and there were many people that they needed to coordinate with including PSEG, county and city departments, as well as the tenants of the buildings. They did it all with the upmost competency and professionalism. Everything was always explained and reviewed with me and even the owner came to the job site for a meeting. Suzanne took great care of our remediation and educated us along the way so we never had a doubt this was being done correctly. If I could give them 6 stars I would. I highly recommend them for any job, commercial or residential.

I received the recommendation for Steve Rich and Associates, Inc. from a friend who raved about their service. My first contact was during the weekend and online. Steve called me back on the next work day. And from there everything was clearly explained. All my questions were answered. Steve and his office had everything organized. The permit came in a timely manner. PSE&G labeled the gas and water lines. Everything was taken care of. The day of the oil tank removal went smoothly. All work was done neatly. A tarp was put out to collect the dirt. The hole that was dug was precise and just the size needed to remove the tank. The crew that came walked me though the process and answered all my questions. It was arranged for PSE&G to be there to make sure none of the digging for the oil tank was done around the gas line. The whole process could not have been easier. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for removal of an underground oil tank. And bonus!!! My oil tank was intact and had no signs of contamination in the soil.

I recently had to have an underground oil tank removed for a sale of a home. Everyone of their staff members, and I dealt with quite a few people were exceptional. They assisted me promptly. They were professional, courteous, and fair with their pricing. All around a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.

I reached out to Steve Rich for our oil tank removal - we were selling our house, and needed to have it removed. The service from Steve Rich is great, and easy and to the point. Their prices were better than 2 other companies I reached out to, and Glenn responded to my inquiry super fast. They also helped guide me for getting the permit. Glenn helped answer all my questions, and we were able to get a schedule pinned down in about a week (it depends on your town), but everything went smooth, and Glenn sent the completed paperwork the next day to ensure we could move forward with the sale. The actual extraction was super smooth. Danny was the excavator, and he used a detector and found exactly where the tank was, and they were done in just a few hours. Overall, great experience for something so intimidating. Much easier than I expected, and better price than the others I reached out to. Recommended for Passaic county and wherever else they might serve in the NE.
