Here is a video of an oil tank that came out of the ground like a wet paper bag. A tank made out of steel shouldn't wobble, shake, and crush like this. The older they get, the worse they are. Cut your losses and get yours out today!

Some tanks are so corroded that they tear a part like a wet paper bag!

This is why it is so important to wash out all of the petroleum sludge and pump the tank completely empty before you even slightly move the tank. This requires experience and careful technique.

The last thing you want is the tank remover to cause a contamination leak that wasn't there before.

Since 2001, we've been removing tanks in southeastern North Carolina.

Non-leaking oil tanks are getting harder and harder to find! These thin bare steel tanks have been corroding underground for 60 to 70 years, well beyond their life expectancy. Over 90% of underground oil tanks have leaked and require action to meet State requirements.

At this property, a porch was going to be built over part of the brick patio but other parts of the patio were going to remain in place. Careful planning and precision excavation allowed us to carefully remove the tank leaving most of the brick patio in tact.

Removing hundreds of tanks since 2001 has taught us well. PES is most experienced tank removal company in southeastern North Carolina. Let us help you resolve your oil tank liability.

At this property, the buyer wanted the seller to remove the tank that was under a deck floored / screen porch.

Given the tank location and the construction of the porch, PES believed this bold move was possible.

As with any tank closure, the tank top is uncovered and cut open, the contents are then pumped and the sludge washed out. Then after pumping the tank completely empty, the tank is carefully removed for proper disposal.
