Getting Started

1. Do I need to have a BOC account to purchase online?

If you are a new BOC customer you will need to register for a BOC account, or if you are an existing customer you simply need to activate your online account to be able to purchase. By registering you will be able to place your gas and equipment orders online. You will also be able to view your cylinder holdings, invoices and account balance.
