Propane Tank Sales & Leasing Options

Acme leases and sells high-quality ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) propane tanks made by Quality Steel or Trinity Industries…both long-established, respected tank manufacturers.

We stock 120 gallon horizontal and vertical above ground tanks and both above ground and underground tanks in 250, 500, or 1000 gallon sizes. We are well-versed in underground tank installations and use protective magnesium anodes on all of our underground tank placements.

Standard “User-friendly” Lease

This option requires that the customer be on automatic propane delivery service from Acme. The standard lease has the lowest initial cost for tank installation. There is a yearly rental charge for the tank and the per-gallon price for propane is initially higher than the per-gallon price charged to customers that own their own tanks. There is also a minimum yearly purchase requirement.

The “user-friendly” feature of the lease is that, after the customer has purchased a set number of gallons of propane, the per-gallon price for propane goes down to the price paid by customers that own their tanks and stays at that low price for as long as the customer is on automatic delivery service. And the benefit transfers to future owners if you sell your home. Available on above ground tanks.

One-payment Lease

An Acme Exclusive! This option requires that the customer be on automatic propane delivery service from Acme. The customer makes only one lease payment (which basically covers the cost of the installation) and gets the lower per-gallon propane price (normally only charged to customers who own their own tanks) right from the start. There are never any more lease payments. If there is any problem with the tank or its fittings, Acme will take care of it at no charge. There is a minimum yearly purchase requirement. Available on above ground tanks.

Tank Purchases

When you purchase your tank outright, there is no minimum yearly purchase requirement and you will get the best-available price at that time. The disadvantage is that the initial cost for the tank is higher and you are responsible for any problems that might arise with the tank and its fittings. Available on both above ground and underground tanks.

Underground Propane Tanks

Acme can either do the whole installation or will work with your excavation contractor for the excavation, tank bedding material and backfill. Only available for purchase.
