    1200 Litre Low Profile Oil Tank - Deso LP1230T Can I fit a single skin oil tank?

    For some DOMESTIC oil tank installations (in England and Scotland, NOT Wales) fitting a single skin oil tank can be suitable solution.

    In ALL cases, an 'oil storage risk assessment' should be carried out to determine the correct tank and installation (this can be carried out by an OFTEC approved engineer).

    In brief a Bund or Bunded Tank is required in domestic situations if:

    • Your tank is in Wales.
    • You are storing over 2500 litres.
    • Your tank is near an open drain or loose-fitting manhole.
    • Your tank is within 10m of controlled water such as a river, stream etc.
    • Your tank is located where any spillage could travel over hard ground to reach controlled water.
    • Your tank is located within 50m of a borehole, spring or well.
    • Your tank vent is not visible from the fill point (such as an extended fill point)
    • Your oil use is for a building other than a single-family dwelling.
    • Any other unique hazards to your site.

    ALL DOMESTIC oil tanks over 2500 litres need to be bunded.

    All NON-DOMESTIC oil tanks over 200 litres need to be bunded.

    Please refer to our “resources” page for more information.

    "Quality seems good, although the filler cap has no provision for any means of locking - simple moulded lugs would have at least been something. Shame that (all) plastic tanks seem to have such an abysmal guarantee!"

    • Adequate for the weight of the tank when full

    • Constructed of concrete, paving stones or stonework
    • Large enough to extend 300mm beyond ALL sides of the tanks

    1200 Litre Low Profile Oil Tank - Deso LP1230T Delivery Information


    The delivery of a tank can be confusing as each manufacturer offers a slightly different service and lead time. Please refer to our Delivery Information page.  Standard tank deliveries are "kerbside" which means the tank will be delivered to the kerb only and not positioned further. Should you have specific delivery requirements or restrictions, please contact us to discuss.


    Tanks Over 2500L – Articulated Lorry – Customer Offload:

    These tanks will be delivered on an articulated vehicle (approximately 16.5m long x 2.6m wide x 3m high) which has no offloading on board, it is the customer's responsibility to offload the tank, which may require a telehandler / forklift.  Curtain sided vehicles are also used, so please note that if there are obstacles or hanging branches on the road to the delivery site etc, the driver may refuse to drive the vehicle to the customer's location due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle. Please let us know if there are any obstructions before delivery, so we can arrange alternative transport.


    18 Tonne Tail Lift HGV

    This vehicle is the size of the largest bin lorries (for comparison) and is approximately 8.2m long x 2.6m wide x 4m high, often curtain sided so please note that if there are hanging branches etc, these vehicles will not attempt to drive down due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle and so it is recommended that a smaller vehicle is requested. Tanks will be lowered to the ground but not positioned as this is a kerbside delivery.  If a smaller vehicle is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name.


    HIAB Delivery

    HIAB delivery is available but must be requested and there will be an additional cost for this service. If a HIAB delivery is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name, and we will come back to you with a price for this service.



    Most accessories will be delivered within 1-3 working days. If you require them quicker, we can on occasions offer a next day service (please contact us to discuss). If the item(s) are out of stock, we will advise you of the expected lead time, and you will of course have the opportunity to cancel with a full refund.
