"Although the seller's disclosure mentioned there were no tanks on the property, given the old age of the home, I knew I wanted the peace of mind of knowing for sure. I was given Tri-County Oil Tank Sweep's number by my realtor. After reading some reviews and seeing nothing but stellar feedback, I confirmed my appointment. On the day of the inspection, Adam called to both confirm the appointment and to let me know that he may be running a few minutes late despite the fact that he showed up right on time anyway. Adam was both professional and very personable. I assumed the inspection would be limited to scanning the outside of the home; however, the inspection began with a review of the existing oil tank in the basement. After some inspection, Adam quickly pieced together some clues that led him to believe there may be an oil tank on the other side of the wall. We went outside to the area in question and low and behold, Adam's equipment confirmed a large metallic object in the ground just where he suspected. I was so glad I decided to go with Tri-county Oil Tank Sweep. They gave me the results of my inspection same day as well as all the paperwork associated with the further exploration and testing of the area. However, most importantly, they have saved me from costly expenses associated with tank removal and possible soil contamination remediation that would have become my responsibility in the future. Take a note from my experience and don't allow a small inspection cost deter you from getting an oil tank sweep performed; it may save you thousands in the long run." - Anselmo Milan
"Awesome to work with - very informative and helpful with determining the best route to proceed with. I will definitely continue to work with Adam and the team and HIGHLY recommend to friends and family." - Sam Rose
"While searching to purchase our forever country home, we were unaware of the risks associated with those older properties in Sussex County having an abandoned oil tank(s). We contacted Tri-County from a referral and spoke with Adam. Before even setting up a site visit he was kind enough to educate over the phone the processes in which he takes and what we should expect. We met Adam the following Monday, he was extremely thorough and explained each step as he was preforming. We explained that we were also interested in another property a town over, he offered to travel the same day for another sweep working with both our real estate agent and home inspector's schedule. We really appreciate & enjoyed working with Adam and highly recommend his oil tank sweep services." -Peterson Family
"Adam was so great to work with. He was very accommodating to schedule an appointment. He performed a thorough sweep and detected two areas that were of concern. After showing my husband and me the areas, we felt it was in our best interests to perform a dig to see what it was. Adam was very accommodating once again when scheduling a second appointment. He continued to impress us during his second visit and again was very thorough. After both appointments he quickly provided us with a detailed report and pictures explaining everything he did and the results. Adam was very professional and easy to work with and we will definitely be recommending him to our friends. Thanks again!" - Stefanie Kraus
"Great Company! Very quick response & service. Adam was very thorough, knowledgeable & professional. Would definitely use their services again & highly recommend." - Blanche & John Candage
