Because the oil truck said Old Man Oil, I went outside to ask if the driver if he was in the right place. We sorted out that he was, due to the lack of drivers being generally available. Then I found that I had locked myself out of the house. The driver let me use his phone to call my husband, then he tried to help me pry a screen loose. That didn't work, so he offered to let me ride around with him for a bit to keep warm. I decided to stay at my house while I waited for my husband. At about the time my husband arrived home, the driver came by to check on me. His help was so appreciated. It's so nice when someone will go out of their way for you. Harrington, now Brideau, has always had pleasant staff, whether it's drivers, technicians, or office staff. Today, I really appreciated the help!

I would like to thank Joe H, he delivered oil today and left biscuits for my dogs even though they were very loud and crazy. I really appreciate him going the extra mile for us. This is what makes your company so great. Thank you again

I received your correspondence and solicitation. Having been with "former oil company" for a number of years, I thought it deserved a response.

The transition from "former oil company" to "newer former oil company" did not seem particularly smooth. The pricing structure and terms presented to us were not in keeping with our historic experience.

We switched our service to the Harrington firm in Holden and could not be happier. They are competitive to the market and offer a level of personalized service we have not experienced in years. Perhaps it is the "old fashioned" family owned approach to business or just their good fortune to have hired amazing people, but they represent a style and reliability that is disappearing elsewhere. Although we appreciate the offer you made, we would never consider switching from them. 

From a marketing standpoint, you might do well to emulate their approach.

Thank you so much for your attention and help in identifying and correcting the problem with our boiler. Joe was quickly able to find and replace the valve fueling our warm radiators during the summer. It is such a relief to know that we are no longer wasting fuel. Thank you for the quick response.

Harrington Oil has been extremely responsible and reliable in providing service to us. Recently, when we had an issue with our oil tank, Pat came out immediately and began to address the problem. Kevin's follow-up in replacing the tank was professional and thorough. The office staff was also excellent in scheduling the necessary service appointments. Thank you, Harrington Oil for coming to our rescue!

When I moved to Holden (in 2013), I never had oil before. As a complete newbie, I was calling around to different places. Everyone I spoke to at Harrington, from office staff to oil and repair personnel(I cannot even try to name everyone!), were always wonderful. I have moved to another house, but will continue to use Harrington as long as I am in their service area!! Keep up the great work!!

The entire staff at Harrington Oil is great. Everyone from the office staff, to the drivers and serviceman are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I just had them out to my house over the weekend because of a hot water problem. The part that we needed was not on the service truck, but they got the hot water going regardless. When they came the next day with the the part, they realized that they made a misdiagnosis, and that a tube was simply clogged. This saved us $80. Its nice to know there are still companies out there that have honor and integrity. I will be working with Harrington Oil for as long as I own my home, and would highly recommend them to ANYONE looking for an oil company

I have had Harrington Oil for a few years now and I cannot say enough about them! 2 weeks ago I had a heating issue on a Sunday afternoon and needed a service call. The serviceman on call, Chris, called me back immediately and was at my house within an hour and fixed the problem on the spot. That kind of personalized treatment and positive attitude is so rare these days. I would recommend Harrington Oil to anyone I know! Top notch customer service!

This morning I ran out of oil. Called at 7:57am to ask for a delivery as soon as possible. Got a call at 8:02am telling me the driver is on his way. At 8:23am I called Harrington Oil to tell them that Dave already delivered the oil, primed the furnace and was a real pleasure to talk to. Thank you for coming thru for me.

I had my burner serviced today for its annual cleaning and the technician who came to the house was one of the best service technicians that I have ever had work on my furnace. He explain everything about my furnace and also gave me answers to questions that I was going ask before I asked them! This is what you call customer service! He was a great extension of what Harrington Oil brings to there customers, I believe he went by BG. Thank you Harrington Oil for all that you do for your customers you leave us worry free!

Great experience dealing with Harrington Oil for the first time. I decided to pretty much run out of oil and I'm glad I called them. Tracy was a rock star. She was a pleasure to talk to and did what she had to do to make sure I got a delivery right away. In the end, I got the oil I desperately needed and they got a new customer.

Chris was at the house right at the time expected and found the problem to be a mixing valve that needed replacement. Chris always does a great job of being thorough in pinpointing the potential issue as well as explanation and showing us how things function. We really appreciate that and find him to be very good at what he does so thank you for keeping a great technician on staff.

--I also wanted to tell you that we have had zero problems with our old furnace since we switched to Harrington Oil two years ago. We always dealt with a clogged filter and were even told that we would need to replace our oil tank at the cost of $2500. Instead, we switched to your oil and have had no issues! Thank you! :-)

Like many others my wife and I have fallen on hard times the past couple of years. Our house was badly damaged in the 2014-2015 winter season and any/all resources we had went into repairs to keep our home. This year, our oil tank decided to spring a leak shortly before the heating season. The fantastic crew at Harrington responded with lightning speed. Every single technician that helped us has been fantastic to work with. When I was told that the patch was temporary and the tank had to be replaced I was devastated, having no immediate funds to pay for it. The technician recommended that I speak with one of the owners to see if we could come to an arrangement. Pat was happy to work with us, and turned what could have been a horrible situation into a wonderful one. It's not often in this day in age that a company will actually care about their customers and work with them. The kind and professional staff at Harrington have gone above and beyond in every possible aspect. Their service is second to none and because of this I plan on being a customer for life. THANK YOU HARRINGTON TEAM!

We love doing business with Harrington Oil. You have given us great service, and the technician that has come to our home on several occasions(once, one week before Christmas when our furnace quit and we were expecting 20 people for a pre christmas party) is the nicest, most professional technician I have encountered in many, many years! Im sure his attitude is a reflection of positive employees and management.

Best Customer Service! The customer service starts on the phone with Deb. She is always informative, accommodating, and cheerful! Not only do they always deliver on time, but most of the time it is well before the time that we requested to ensure that we have uninterrupted service! We have also used their burner service and we were pleasantly surprised with the professionalism! If anyone asks us we always say "Harrington Oil"! They are a family business that takes the extra effort every time! Thank you Harrington Oil family!

My husband and I are Worcester residents who have been customers of Harrington Oil for a few years now. I cannot say enough good things about Harrington Oil. I'll start with their Office Manager, Debra. If I ever have a question or concern about anything at all, she always responds to my emails the same day. She is kind and always gives me whatever information I need. I truly appreciate that. Harrington's oil prices are always great. When we first bought our house, we used to shop around for oil, but when we found Harrington, we stuck with them and have never even considered getting our oil elsewhere. A huge plus is their great website. They conveniently list oil delivery days by city/town and allow you to place your oil delivery request online. Super convenient! Our oil is always delivered as requested. Our pipe is located right outside one of our dogs' favorite windows. I tend to feel bad whenever we are getting a delivery as they both bark their heads off right in the window. However, I now know the people at Harrington Oil are dog lovers too! With our delivery slip last week, Joe left a biscuit for each of our dogs! It was such a pleasant surprise and the dogs loved them! Harrington Oil is truly a great company and we are glad to support them.

A few weeks ago we had our annual furnace cleaning. First, the burner technical person was very courteous, answered any questions, and was most helpful and knowledgeble. And found and took care of a problem that for years no one seemed to know what it was or how to fix it. He put a part in and so far our cellar has been dry. Good experience with him. Have a good New Year.

Each time I have to call Harrington with a need they are not only great to deal with but VERY pleasant and professional. They have had our business for a year and a half now and we would not go to any other place. We have had their technician Chris fix our furnace and he not only comes over with a smile on his face but explains exactly what the problem is. Best technician I have ever dealt with by far. Thank you all for your service and the whole family wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

I had my burner tuned and serviced yesterday morning by Chris. He is very nice and a good mechanic. When I went downstairs this morning there was my burner and it was so clean I thought he had installed a new one. This was by far the best annual tune-up I have ever received. I hope Chris and Harrington Oil are around for a long time.

When my husband and I bought our first house, we needed oil right away. Being first-time homeowners and with no family in the immediate area, we had to choose an oil company on our own. We looked at the oil companies around the area and decided to go with a family-owned business who had years of experience. Enter Harrington Oil!

One of the first times we got oil from Harrington, the oil tank gauge still showed a low level. We called up Harrington Oil on a Saturday, and Ed came over right away. He showed us how the gauge can get stuck sometimes, and within a matter of a few minutes, we were as right as rain.

We also get our furnace cleaned by Harrington. Because it had been a couple of years since our last cleaning, Deb called us up and reminded us that we should get it cleaned. Talk about a company that has caring, customer service!

I can't say enough about Harrington Oil. They are professional and friendly. We can always count on them! Even when I'm in Worcester and I see a Harrington Oil truck go by, it puts a smile on my face because I know they are taking care of people!

Talk about full-service... Today, I had a delivery scheduled but when I left the house this morning, I had not even realized the recent 11-inches of snow had covered the oil pipe outside, making it difficult to access. When I got home, I noticed the shovel I keep out front was moved. It turns out the delivery tech had found it, shoveled out a path, and delivered the oil. I apologize for not having it ready; that was clearly my oversight. But I have to think other drivers might have just turn around. Thanks!

My daughter Lindsey purchased her first home last year. She ran out of oil during the recent snow storm and called her oil company(which was the same as mine) as well as multiple others who would not even deliver a day after the storm. She called Harrington Oil and they provided her an emergency delivery the same day she called. That is the type of service I'm looking for. Our old company didn't just lose one customer as a result. They lost 2…
