About Us


I’m Chris Bicknell founder and owner of HomeFuels Direct.

I established HomeFuels Direct in January 2008 with the intention of providing a service that is tailored around you the consumer.

The intention is to make a convenient service with the ability to order  24 hrs a day when YOU want to,  and with cheap and affordable products and services, and above all to be extremely transparent with pricing.  The heating oil market in the UK prior to 2008 was old fashioned and did not like to bare-all so we decided to turn that upside down and strip everything right back and you could say we are like the Ryanair or EasyJet of the heating oil world by providing all the same products and services as any other provider, but at affordable prices. So if you live in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland you can benefit from the products and services we provide.

As the owner of HomeFuels Direct I continually strive to progress and push the limits within the industry and I am personally very open to hear what you the consumer thinks, because it's you that helps shape my business and the industry that I operate in, and this is probably why we are the UK’s best rated online heating oil supplier. 

Although we are an online heating oil supplier, we also operate a call centre for customers that prefer to speak to someone when placing an order.  Our UK National call Centre is based in the North East of England in Teesside and from the head office we can send all orders out to our UK network of depots and because we are a truly national company it means we are never that far away from you with regards to delivery, which enables us to provide cheap heating oil prices.

Thousands of customers every month across the UK keep coming back to us!  We know what is important to you and we understand that when you require Home Heating Oil..........  We Deliver
