SHF Petroleum provides residential fuel delivery services and is the home heating fuel supplier of choice for many in Christchurch and throughout Canterbury. We understand that for most people, running out of fuel can cause a major inconvenience and in some circumstances, endanger the health of your family.
We offer a scheduled delivery service so that you can rely on us to consistently deliver the fuel you need, when and where you need it. The other option is to call us when you require refueling and we will be happy to deliver.
Our Goal is to deliver, no matter what. Whether it’s a weekend or a holiday, we have a 24 hour telephone answering service and an emergency call out service that delivers outside of normal business hours. Bad weather is no problem either, we know that’s often when you need us the most.
SHF Petroleum supplies diesel and a diesel-kerosene blended Hitherm fuel directly to your home. We have trucks of all different sizes and our smaller models are light enough to access your driveway without causing damage.
Each of our mini-tanker vehicles has a delivery hose of over 40 meters, so we can reach those diesel tanks that may be tucked away in the far corner of the garden. The meters on all our vehicles are Trade Measurement Unit approved and tested. A printout is provided for the quantity of fuel delivered at each fill which also serves as your tax invoice and is left in your letterbox. This means you don’t have to be home when the delivery is made.
Contact us today to see how we can give you the peace of mind that comes from working with SHF Petroleum. You can rely on us to be there when you need us.
This fuel product is used in closed domestic, commercial and industrial heating systems, as well as diesel vehicles and machinery.
Hitherm is a kerosene diesel blend, for use in flued vaporising pot burners and portable workshop heaters. The kerosene content lowers the flashpoint of the fuel and creates a cleaner burn.
B20 Biotherm creates cleaner burning, has lower co2 emissions. B20 is a biofuel blend with 20% processed recycled cooking oil from renewable resources and 80% Kerosene. Our product’s lower carbon footprint is due to lower energy processing.
The team at SHF has really gone above and beyond for my family.
My elderly father was a customer of theirs for many years but as he got into his later years he often misjudged the amount of diesel he required for his heating needs, resulting in him suddenly running out on more than one occasion.
SHF would drop everything to deliver his fuel to make sure he was ok, including sorting deliveries after work hours and just before long holiday weekends. Nothing was ever a problem for the team there and they always just sorted any problems he had.
Since my father has passed away I have continued to use SHF but on a less frequent basis and they have been incredibly flexible in accommodating changing needs and working out solutions that best fit for me.
I recommend them highly. Their customer service was, and is still, amazing.
SHF has been providing me with fuel to heat my home since 2008.
The process is so easy for me and I don’t have to be home when they deliver. They are also very, very tidy - there’s no spillage and I have never run out of fuel.
I have a monitor inside which shows my fuel level and when I’m on half-full, I call them to refill it. The truck arrives, parks on the road and then the service person runs a hose down the side of my house to the tank which then gets refilled.
The previous owners of the house gave me SHF’s information because they were happy with the service. I’m putting the house on the market soon and I’ll also be recommending SHF to the new owners.
I have no idea how many other fuel places operate like this, but I’m very, very happy with the service. I thoroughly recommend them.
I began using SHF about a year ago and they really came through for my family when we needed them.
At the time, we had just purchased our home and weren’t sure about how much diesel the tank needed to heat the house. Before we could get it sorted, we ended up running out on a rainy, cold Sunday!
This quickly became a very serious situation as we have a young son at home who has significant health issues. It’s critical that he is kept warm at all times.
We rang a lot of other companies but they wouldn’t come out to help us. I called SHF and they came out that same day to refill our tank.
I let the driver know about our situation and he assured me that they would take care of everything. And they have. Our tank now gets filled on a regular basis and I never have to think about it. It gives me such peace of mind to know there’s one less thing I need to remember to do.
I can’t speak highly enough about SHF. They were really there for us when we needed them and we are so grateful.
