Contract and Deposit New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Step 2

CONTRACT & DEPOSIT

All Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ service work by Quality Tank Services begins with a signed contract. In order to get your Tank Removal NJ project started we also require a small deposit to start the Oil Tank Removal NJ permitting processes. Permitting for the Oil Tank NJ work is the first of many phases to getting your NJ Oil Tank Removal completed.


Permitting New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Step 3

PERMITTING

Quality Tank Services will fill out all necessary township permit applications, as our Oil Tank Removal NJ contractor’s license is required for the issuance of Tank Removal NJ permits. We will then forward the completed paperwork along with any Soil Testing NJ required documents to the local building department. Please keep in mind that the building department has approximately 20 business days by law to review and sign off on Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ permits. Generally permits take anywhere from 3-10 business days, depending on the township.


Utility Mark-Outs New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Step 4

UTILITY MARK-OUTS

Before you dig in the State of New Jersey, you must call and have all utility companies (gas, water, electric and cable) mark out the location where all utilities are located on the property. There is a wait time of five (5) business days before digging can start, once mark-outs are done, and your property may be marked out several times prior to your scheduled Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ date.

Our office calls for mark-outs prior to the start of your Tank Removal NJ project, in order to get them completed by the time the Oil Tank Removal NJ permits are issued. We will notify you of when they are scheduled to mark-out the job site.


Scheduling Your New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Step 5

SCHEDULING

Once the township issues a Oil Tank Removal NJ permit number, we schedule your job on our calendar and arrange for township inspection. All inspections must be scheduled with the township prior to your Tank Removal NJ project. Typically your Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ job can start within 1-5 business days after the receipt of your Oil Tank Removal NJ permit number (weather or equipment failure permitting.) Oil Tank Inspection NJ then follows immediately.


Doing the New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Work Step 6

DOING THE WORK

On the day of the Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ all liquids are pumped from the Underground Oil Tank and a flap is cut into the top of the Oil Tank. The base of the Underground Oil Tank contains sludge which must be emptied before the Oil Tank Removal NJ continues. A technician then enters the Oil Tank NJ and hand wipes the interior.

Quality Tank Services then completes the Oil Tank Removal NJ process. The whole Underground Storage Tank Removal NJ process is typically completed in one day if there aren’t any unforeseen issues or complications. Also, if there is a need for a new Above-Ground Oil Tank Installation NJ the project can be scheduled on the same day or, depending upon the heating season, on another day before the old Oil Tank NJ is removed. Any clean oil will be transferred to the new Above-Ground Oil Tank.


Getting the New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Inspection Step 7

GETTING THE WORK INSPECTED

Once the Oil Tank is removed from the ground, the township inspector will come out to your residence to examine the Oil tank and the open excavation area. The inspector looks for corrosion holes in the Oil Tank and/or stained soils in ground below where the Underground Oil Tank NJ was located. The inspector will pass or fail the Tank Removal NJ inspection based on this evaluation.


Finishing Up the New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Process Step 8

FINISHING UP THE OIL TANK REMOVAL PROCESS

Once the Oil Tank Inspection NJ passes, Qualified Tank Services will backfill the excavation area to grade with certified clean fill, and finish a grassy area with seed and hay, season permitting. If the Oil Tank Removal NJ took place under a driveway area, Quality Tank Services will top the area with stone. We are happy to recommend a sub-contractor for the asphalt or concrete repair.

Thereafter, Qualified Tank Services will provide you with an Underground Oil Tank Removal NJ certification which you can present to your insurance carrier for a reduction in your homeowner’s coverage.

In the case of failed inspections the inspector will require that we report your property to the NJDEP for the assignment of an Incident Case Number to track and document the contamination situation. Click here for more information.
