The different price elements cover the different costs associated with supplying cylinder gases.
Why three different price elements?
Each of our customers is unique and wishes to trade with us differently.
Customers may use the same amount of gas each year but some will want to hold higher cylinder stocks than others, some may want to order more frequently than others and some may want their orders delivered while others will prefer to collect.
We believe that charging for each element independently is fair to each customer with only those services used being paid for.
This is the price for the actual quantity of gas in the cylinder and is based on how much it costs us to produce.
Gases such as acetylene and argon are more expensive to produce than a gas like oxygen and this is reflected in the price.
The purity of the gas or the specification of gas mixtures will also effect the gas price.
This charge is made for each delivery drop and covers the costs associated with the delivery.
BOC has a rental charge for all cylinders.
We ensure the quality and safety of our cylinders by performing regular tests, making repairs and replacing cylinders as necessary.
Cylinders and valves are regularly upgraded in line with new technology.
Cylinder rental also gives you the flexibility to swap empty cylinders for full cylinders at any of our locations, take more cylinders as and when you need them and return them when you don’t.
BOC has a number of options of how rental is charged, but monthly or annually are the two most common methods. The Advisor who opens your account will discuss this with you, to find the method that best suits your requirements.
