Like running out of time on an exam, running out of barbecuing fuel generally results in an urge to rub pencils together to start a fire. Keep grills well stocked with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a 20-pound propane-grill-tank delivery and exchange from The Propane Express (a $20 value). Free delivery is available on certain days of the week, which vary by zip code. Peruse the list of delivery zones for areas served.
The Propane Express's team of fuel ferriers slakes the thirsts of parched barbecues with door-to-door tank deliveries. On the day of a scheduled delivery, a representative arrives with a fresh 20-pound reservoir of flame-feeding juice, adorned with the proper OPD valve, and exchanges it for any tank the customer may already have, as long as it bears little to no rust and a proper OPD valve. Customers need not be home for the swap out, freeing up valuable time for lassoing feral burgers in the wilderness. As an additional benefit, The Propane Express enrolls all patrons in its customer-rewards program, which grants them $3 off every third tank exchange. The Propane Express guarantees that all tanks will be filled with 17 pounds of propane, 2 more pounds than most of its competitors, ensuring that no sneaky steak evades a grill's fiery tongue.
The Propane Express
With its doorstep delivery system, The Propane Express ensures that no barbecue is called off for lack of fuel. Staffers arrive at their clients' locations to present them with propane tanks, then tote away their empty tanks to save clients the hassle of lugging them to the refill station or replenishing their supplies with helium from expired birthday balloons. Customers simply indicate where they're leaving the empty tank, and the delivery workers will perform the switch even if nobody is home.
