about us

Heltor have considerable experience within the fuel industry having been operating since the early 1960’s. The family business began on a farm in Devon before relocating to Heathfield industrial estate in the 1970’s.

At this time the company broadened their client base and expanded into Cornwall, setting up a depot in St Austell. The company is still a family run business to this day. Employing friendly, local staff who we know hold a wealth of local knowledge, allowing us to provide an unrivalled service at competitive prices throughout Devon and Cornwall.

In the 1980’s Heltor became an authorised gulf petroleum distributor and continued to expand its commercial agricultural and domestic business. We offer our own brand lubricants alongside all main brands Shell and Castrol. In addition, we are now an authorised distributor for Phillip 66 who owns the Jet brand in the UK.

We operate a full range of tankers. From our smaller baby tanker delivering 500 litres to our largest artic tankers making deliveries of 36,000 litres.

Frequently asked questions

Which heating oil do I need?

Although some domestic boilers use gas oil, the vast majority of oil fired boilers and AGA’s are fuelled by kerosene. If you are unsure please contact your nearest depot.

Does the quantity I order affect the price?

The most economic order size for both you and us and therefore the most common order is 900 litres but as a general rule the larger the quantity the cheaper the litre price.

Do you operate smaller tankers?

At Heltor, we specialise in operating a range of tanker sizes. This includes what we call our baby tanker, this vehicle is amongst the smallest in operation in the area and as such can take on the complicated deliveries where space and hard to reach locations are a concern.

How do I pay for my oil?

Online, by bank transfer, by cheque or by credit or debit card over the phone or alternatively you can sign up to our monthly budget payment scheme. Please note that a charge applies for credit card payments. See our domestic page for more info.
