Another Job Checked Off

I hired a company to dig up my underground fuel tank and they were supposed to come on October 8.  Unfortunately, there was a train wreck in central Vermont and they were called in to help with that clean up.  I had to wait.

Well, they were able to come last Wednesday.  It wasn't a beautiful day.  They got rained on.  (But at least it wasn't snow, which we had on Sunday!)



The tank was rusty looking, but there were no leaks and no soil contamination, for which I am especially grateful.

  2. So, if there were no leaks, why did it have to be dug up? How long does a tank last these days?

    1. Banks will not approve mortgages for properties with underground tanks. Since I did not sell to cash buyers, I had to have it removed and the soil tested.

  3. That's a biggie to get checked off the list. And a big sigh of relief! Congratulations!

  4. Glad everything went well with the removal. I'm sure you're glad to get things taken care of and will be happy when this move is done.

    Take care!

  5. What was the underground fuel tank for anyway?

    1. It was for the fuel oil for our furnace. It was nice to not see a fuel truck pulling into the driveway every month during the cold winters.

  6. Good thing to have done and checked off. It was great that it had not leaked. Nice touch with putting plywood on the grass.

    1. It was quite the dance those workers did with the ply wood! Not a cheap job, this one.

  8. Did not know that about fuel tanks but it makes sense for the buyer. So happy that it turned out so well for you and that you didn't have any extra expense. Goodness selling a house is complicated.

  9. Sure glad the tank didn't have any leeks and that things are going smoothly. Except for that snow -- had to believe you had snow and it was mid 80s here!
