Our propane delivery trucks are on the road virtually non-stop these days. In Cibola, Catron, and Socorro counties in New Mexico and Navajo and Apache counties in Arizona, households are counting on Sierra Propane to provide the fuel that powers their heating, hot water generation, and major appliances.
Demand is high, as it always is this time of year. Dropping temperatures are making snowy and icy conditions more likely. This all adds up to a challenging situation for our drivers. But you can help us make your propane delivery quickly and safely by taking four simple steps. This will ensure you get your fuel on time and keep our team on schedule.
If there’s ice or snow on your driveway, it’s imperative that you shovel it and put salt or sand down before our driver arrives. Our drivers need a nine- to 10-foot-wide clear path to maneuver. Also, we must be able to safely secure wheel chocks (the tire wedges that prevent trucks from rolling back) when parking on inclines.
Finally, it’s incredibly helpful to mark the borders of your driveway in case snow has covered them.
To be able to fill your propane tank, we need to be able to find your house. This can be hard when branches and snow cover your house number, especially with the sun setting so early at this time of the year. We appreciate it when homeowners clear anything that blocks the number on their house and turn on their exterior lights.
If you really want to make our driver’s day, leave the gate to your property open and clear any snow, ice, vegetation or debris that could block the way to your tank. (Be sure your pet is inside if the gate is open.) This will give our team members an unobstructed pathway for their hose.
