Further improvements to the property are always in the works.
In Fall of 2012 two properties were purchased to the rear of the service station, and in Fall of 2013 we broke ground. A 30,000 gallon propane bulk plant was installed.
The present site of Quality Discount Heating Oil & Propane was once an Esso Service Station built in 1941 with a two bay garage for auto repairs and one island for fueling cars and trucks. Since then the Esso Service Station has undergone multiple renovations and now has two islands for fueling cars and trucks, a mini-market, and serves as an office for our fuel delivery services.
In November of 1992 the service station was purchase by John P. Modesto the founder and current proprietor of Quality Discount Heating Oil & Propane. The repair bays remained opened for the first 5 years but were remodeled and replaced with a mini-market. After the remodeling came the addition of our fuel delivery service. This new venture started out with two very old delivery trucks which were tough to keep in operation! Now, we boast six state-of-the-art business class delivery trucks.
In August of 2013 John P. Modesto Jr. joined the team after working in the supply chain industry for several years. His plans are to modernize the company and continue to operate the family owned business for years to come.
Since we started out our mission was to ensure our customers would receive excellent service and quality fuel when they need it at a discounted price. Over the years we've added both heating oil and propane storage to keep true to this mission.
Your comfort is too important so we deliver every time, and that's a promise.
The difference, in one word, is experience. Our drivers, customer service representatives, and service technicians have over 20 years of experience.
With our office in Port Carbon, PA we are able to serve our neighbors in central Schuylkill County.
In Winter of 2000, the property to the left of the service station was purchase and in the Spring we broke ground to install a loading rack and 20,000 gallon heating oil storage tank.
