Propane Tank Relocation


Do propane suppliers relocate tanks as part of their service contract or do P&H contractors do this? I have to demo a small shed that the tank is behind and build a garage in its place. This tank is for the house. Although the client may opt to heat his garage with a modine.

Re: Propane Tank Relocation


It would be your best bet to have a supplier do it. I needed to have a 500 lb. underground tank raised a few feet. The propane supplier showed up, drained the tank into there delivery truck, then moved the tank were I wanted it with one of there lift trucks. They won't put the gas back in unless A) They do the reconnection's or B) They inspect the reconnection (for a fee). I just let them take care of it.

Sounds like a plan. Ill find out from the owner who the supplier is. They will have to move it twice, Once to get it and its underground line out of the way of the excavation and to put it back behind the garage once it is built.

Re: Propane Tank Relocation


Here if the tanks are leased the supplier wants to move their tank. If the ho owns the tank then we will move it.
