Bottini Fuel is one of our terrific sponsors of Wild About Wappingers. We welcome them to the family! Bottini Fuel has been a presence in Wappingers Falls for years. We had the opportunity to speak with Kara Rogowski, Marketing Coordinator for Bottini Fuel. We spoke about the founding of the company, who they are, what they offer and how it all benefits you. Read on and contact them for more information on your individual home heating/cooling needs.
Please tell us a bit about Bottini Fuel.
Bottini Fuel is the full-service fuel provider of choice for thousands of homes and businesses throughout the Hudson Valley. Our story began in 1951 right here in Wappingers as a one-truck operation by Tony Bottini. Today, Bottini is run by Tony’s three sons, and has grown to a full fleet of big red trucks. We are proud to be members of the Wappingers Falls community for close to 70 years now.
We know that Bottini Fuel is one of the largest suppliers of oil and propane in the Hudson Valley. What customers might not know is that you offer many programs based on your clients individual needs. Would you like to tell us about a few?
We offer many different payment plans and pricing options to fit everyone’s needs. We offer price protection year round, which is designed to protect you from the volatility in the market. You can protect your price and know what your price will be through the heating season regardless of what the market does. We also offer payment plans, like our budget plan. Our EZ Pay budget plan allows you to spread your payments out over 11 months instead of getting stuck with those high winter heating bills so there are no surprises. We also a variety of service plans to protect your heating or A/C unit throughout the year.
For those of us who cannot find the time to call your office, I see you offer the use of an on-line portal. What can your customers find/do on the portal?
We have an online portal that allows you to order fuel, schedule non-emergency service, update account information, see deliveries, view transactions, and more. We also offer our “Customers Have a Voice Program” through our website that allows our customers to leave their insight and feedback so we can continue to do right by our customers.
I’m sure we’ve all seen your pink fuel truck. I know Bottini Fuel supports the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. What other community events does Bottini participate in?
We try to be active members of the communities we serve. We have been supporters of the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation with our pink oil truck for many years now. We participate actively in the Dutchess County Fair each year. We pledged to donate $25,000 to Vassar Hospital to help in their mission. We support our local elementary school PTA. We support local events, such as galas, concerts, breakfast/lunch events, and everything in between for various organizations throughout the Hudson Valley. Though we know we can’t help everywhere, we try to help wherever we can.
What is the most important piece of information you can give us regarding heating and cooling our homes throughout the year?
When trying to keep your home warm in the winter, let the sunlight in to naturally warm your home, and close the curtains at night to keep the warmth in. When trying to keep your home cool in the summer, try to keep the sunlight out during the day.
Is there anything we might not know about your company?
