        is this guy naturally a jackass or does he work at it ? i have never had a problem with this company untill now. does auto delivery mean you don't have to worry about running out of oil ? absolutely no repore with the customer and doesn't really give a crap.his explanations make no sense at all and actually leaning towards stupid.people just like to call oil companies to see if they'll bring out oil even if you have some just for pure entertainment! cut me a break.the dumbest thing iv'e heard lately.not a consumer friendly or service friendly co. very very disappointed.it's a shame how someone can destroy a well established co run by good folks and totally destroy it. sad. there have been many people reporting this same issue with shellhorn and hill.

        until this year i was ok with this company. this year pipes burst going to my heater and the first time they fixed it because it was warm and the did not have a lot of other calls. now that this has happened again because they are overloaded with calls they will not fix it. they took over 7 hours to come to the house and send a very strange little man who did nothing except walk around shaking his head and say there was a lot of plumbing that needed doing and left. the next day they send someone one out and he says he can not fix the problem because he is not a plumber. i am sitting here in 49 deg temps waiting for A independ plumber to cam and see if he can help us. this is a friday and i doubt if we will have heat over the weekend.

        DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE ONLY GOOD IN FAIR WEATHER.

        Totally agree with the last poster but my story has a different twist. My balance was down to about $150 plus the cost of a new service contract when they decided last month when it was 80 degrees out to fill my tank with another $700 worth of oil. Again who needs heating oil when it's 70, 80, 90 degrees out???

        My family had been using Shellhorn & Hill for over 30 years but not anymore!

        My family has been a customer of Shellhorn and Hill for the past 50 years. We were satisfied up to about 1 year ago. They told me they would not deliver oil until my balance was $0.00. Ok, I'll deal with that......then they delivered $600.00 of oil for the summer. Now who uses oil in May. Nothing like jacking up my balance. BUT money is in their pocket. Looking for another oil company...Have had enough of this company.....any suggestions?

        I had cxl'd my contract with another oil company as few years ago, and started ordering oil thru SH&H on an "as needed" basis... I found that this actually saved me $300. - $400. per year, and I didn't get hit with a monthly charge in the summer months, like I had been previously.
        Ordering from SH & H makes it very convenient, and when I have a few extra $$, I can order and have it ready when needed.

        They will also give you a .05 discount if you pay by credit card - yay! usually, it is the other way around!

        Thanks SH&H, you have me as a customer as long as I am in Delaware!

        We have had Shellhorn & Hill for many, many years and have always had excellent service. The servicemen are courteous and answer any questions. We have automatic delivery and no problem with it. I highly recommend them.

        S&H is the only company out there that will provide service even if you do not have a contract. Our heater broke down late at night & they were the only ones who responded to my call. I will certainly use them again.

        DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY. They told me that I had too much snow in my yard for them to deliver. We shoveled a path for them and they didn't like where we shoveled it. We just had two major storms.

        Though I've never gotten the warm fuzzies from them, their price at the time I first used them 3 years ago was comparable to everyone else, and they could deliver when I needed it. I called yesterday to order 250+ gallons of heating oil because we are very low. They just called and said they had "an emergency" and can't come until tomorrow. (It's early enough in the day that this doesn't make any sense to me when they supposedly have a huge fleet of trucks.) I said we were going to run out and they replied with "Sorry. Do you want to cancel?" I said yes because we WILL run out if we don't get oil today. They said they'd take me off the list. That's it. No remorse, nothing. I guess since I'm not on contract, I am dispensable. I picked up the phone and called Griffith Oil in Nottingham, PA that I'd seen advertising in Cecil Soil Magazine. Not only could they come out today WITHOUT charging me an extra "rush fee" like S&H does, but their price was 11 cents per gallon CHEAPER than the price S&H quoted me! Plus they were friendly and I felt they really WANTED my business! See ya, S&H, I've found a new supplier!

        My boiler broke in October. I was assured that since I had platinum contract, there would be no service charge. The service man came out and was able to tell me I had a leak (I could have told him that since my basement floor was covered in water.) He then shut down the boiler, and left telling me it wasn't safe to operate, and we had to make do with space heaters and the fireplace. I was then sent a bill for $165.00 service charge and told it would cost $5200.00 to replace the boiler. I hired my own service person to install a new boiler for a total of $3500 (parts and labor). I'm looking for a new oil company- any suggestions?

        My contract was set to expire in July. I called b/c my tank was not full and wanted it to be full until the price per gallon went up by about $2. I was informed that if they came out a $20 charge would be assessed if I didn't need 168 gallons. I checked the oil tank to ensure the amount of gallons and it was no where near 168 gallons. I called right back, about 10 minutes later, spoke to a Customer Service Representative and canceled my request. Well, they came out the next way to fill the tank anyway and charged my account the $20. I called and they said it was a valid charge even though I called to cancel. Please take your business elsewhere! $20 is $20, I called to cancel. They made the mistake by coming out. I should not be charged the $20.

        Shellhorn and Hill used to be good about 6 years ago, now their service stinks. we have ran out of oil 2 times this winter and another time last winter and we have automatic delivery. Their employees are not helpful and do not provide a discount when you run out of oil. I think we should boycott them and get another service so we can put them out of business!

        Shell Horn assisted me when my furnace was clogged, extremely nice phone dispatch people, and even though they charge a same day fee of $10.00, they made a delivery within just a few hours of my emergency request.

        They were supposed to deliver oil after paying them, the oil man never showed up and on top of that they wanted me to pay another $170.00 to have 10gal. worth of oil put into my tank. the lady I spoke to told me to put Diesel fuel in the tank to hold me. When I asked to speak to someone over her, she replied that no one (management) would be in until Monday. This sounds like a channel 10 investigation report.

        Luckily I monitor my oil tank, so I contacted shellhorn & hill requesting a delivery ( even though I'm on automatic delivery and I'm being charged so that I don't have to request it ). Next I found Alger Oil, who charges about 20 cents gallon less than shellhorn & hill...not to mention their service contract is cheaper.

        Service wise I've been relatively pleased with shellhorn & hill, but valuewise (ie. what you pay vs what you get ) I think there are better options out there.

        The recent forecast cold blast obviously was not understood by Shellhorn & Hill - we ran out of fuel when we were on automatic delivery. When called, the operator said we were not the only ones - that was a big help and did not make us comfortable with that news. The rep came in 1-1/2 hrs. He was disgusted with his employer as well said it should not have happened. When we called Shellhorn & Hill they did not even apologize when asked what they were going to do...they said nothing if you don't like it you can go elsewhere. We were 30 yr. customers. Their service is lousy, their customer service is nonexistent and they won't even return a call. Oh, in 1995 we ran out twice in the same season - we should have moved on then. Don't go there. Low class operation and unprofessional.

        After spending $5,000 on a new oil boiler, and being convinced to go from 2 zones to 1, one of our rooms consequently does not get heated (same season as installation). There was no help in trying to rectify this, only a service call CHARGE telling us that we need to move the thermostat...

        After trying to talk to "Mike" (JR), I realized these people don't care about service. Now I'll go to better business bureau and discourage anyone from giving these people business.
        Compainies with poor customer service need to be out of business, let's make it happen.

        We use Shellhorn and Hill for our heater. We purchase the premium contract each year for maintenance. Luckily I haven't needed to use it for any heater problems. We have only used them to do a yearly service on the heater. The first year it took him longer to service because it was really bad from lack of maintenance. We also use buy our heating oil from them too.
