Wentzel’s is an experience oil tank removal contractor. We will remove any unwanted oil tank on your property and properly dispose of it. If a leak is discovered in your oil tank we will do everything required by law including reporting the leak to the EPA. The benefit of hiring us to remove your oil tank is that we make it as easy as possible for you by handling all paperwork and dealing with any remaining oil in the tank.
Even if you are not selling your home (or you don’t live in Sarasota County) we strongly recommend that you call us to remove your existing underground oil tank and replace it with a new above ground tank. The fact is that underground oil tanks eventually leak into the ground causing damage to the environment and leeching into the groundwater. It is much less expensive to replace a tank before it starts leaking into the ground.
We care about the Sarasota community and the cleanliness of our water for both human consumption and a healthy ecosystem.
