There are some people who believe that it is better to own your propane tank than to rent it from a propane delivery company. One reason not to go that route is that you’ll be responsible for all propane tank maintenance yourself. If you don’t have the time or skill to keep up with your tank’s maintenance needs, you are likely to end up with problems in the long run, leaving you little recourse but to purchase another one.
While it is true that when you rent a propane tank you are then tied to that delivery company, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you are working with a company with decades of quality service to the community, there is no real reason to shop around every time you need your tank filled. Prices tend to stay pretty steady across the board. Propane tank rental is often extremely affordable besides, so it could take several years to recoup the cost of a new propane tank through rental savings. When you add in that the company handles all propane tank maintenance and will bring you a new or refurbished one, if necessary, it makes a lot of sense to rent instead of purchase a propane tank.
