Why buy Australian fuel storage tanks

Why buy Australian fuel storage tanks?

Considering bulk fuel storage and wondering about the importance of choosing Australian fuel storage tanks? Buying Australian made fuel tanks has many benefits to the customer, the economy and Australia as a whole. Find out the advantages of choosing Australian made and how to tell if a tank is imported or manufactured in Australia.

A primary advantage of buying an Australian made fuel storage tank is an assurance of the quality of the product. Australian manufacturers use premium quality materials that result in tanks that are highly durable and made to last. Fuel storage tanks are continuously in the firing line of the elements including extreme heat, UV, rain, wind or cold depending on the location or season. Such regular stress can mean tanks have considerable wear and tear. An imported, often cheaper tank is not built to the same specifications and to the same standards to cope with these conditions. So what may seem like a cost saving in the beginning ends up being a costly replacement.

Safety is another factor when buying Australian made. Australian manufacturers understand the landscape and conditions that impact equipment and undertake exceptional standards in builds so the equipment remains, safe, reliable, durable and functional. They are also required to meet Australian standards such as AS1692 and AS1940 and regulations to follow for the product build in the factory itself. The result is an overall improved safety for products and workers.

If a fuel tank is compromised in anyway, the impact can be very harmful, increasing the risk of fuel contamination inside the tank and contamination of the environment outside of the tank. If the tank is not bunded (double walled) and the fuel has an opportunity to leak into the surrounding landscape, the pollution of the land, waterways and wildlife can be serious.

Customer service
When you buy Australian made you can expect great customer service. Australian fuel tank manufacturers can provide an additional level of support and service to customers. This includes outstanding communication channels, being able to readily customise tanks, visit the manufacturing centre, review the quality and talk to personnel, and an opportunity for specific installation and maintenance services.

Supporting local business and Australia
When you buy Australian made, you are supporting local. Buying locally made equipment supports local employment, develops skills and keeps wealth in local communities. With employment opportunities brings other opportunities to communities including improved community facilities and educational opportunities. Buying overseas made tanks means your money goes overseas to support businesses and employment outside of Australia.

How do you know your tank is really Australian made?
It is often hard to know if a fuel tank is Australian made with some tanks seeming to be Australian made when they are actually cheap imported tanks that are simply fitted in Australia. One way to be sure that you are buying Australian made quality is to check if the company you are working with are certified Australian made. To receive an Australian made certification a manufacturer must prove they have manufactured the tank in Australia using Australian goods.

Buying Australian made fuel tanks ensures high-quality and durable tanks that can be easily customised, excellent customer support and service, and an investment and support of the local economy. View our range of Australian made fuel storage tanks and trailers

quote-01I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure

Having them already saved us on oil transport on at least 2 occasions so far and has also allowed us to restructure our oil work days and use out of hours oil deliveries to make more efficient use of the time on site.
