Having the right tool for the job is essential, whether you’re farming, working construction, mining, logging or even just working around the home. That means keeping your equipment in working order is equally important.
At Co-op, we understand that having the right lubricant for your equipment on hand can be the difference between getting the job done and calling it an early day. That’s why our Lubricant Bulk Delivery Program offers reliable and efficient service to alleviate pain points like packaging and disposal while reducing the need to constantly monitor stock availability.
Currently, we have 25 bulk lubricant trucks covering Western Canada, serving over 75 local Co-ops and their surrounding communities. Each truck has an average capacity of up to 12,000L and the ability to pump 130-150 litres per minute, depending on the oil. Plus, if you’re looking for bulk storage solutions, your local Co-op can help set you up with the proper storage for bulk lubricants, no matter the size of your operation. Wondering about the Co-op Lubricant Equipment Program? Contact your local Co-op for more details and find out how you can qualify to upgrade your lubricant on-site storage.
Why go bulk?
You might be wondering what the benefits are to choosing bulk. “Our bulk lubricants are truly a premium product with great pricing,” explains Aaron Mack, Petroleum Sales Manager with South Country Co-op Limited. Second, customers can receive multiple products and grades in a single delivery drop off, saving the time of making one or more trips to a local Co-op. Co-op’s focus on building great relationships with our customers means we place a premium on making deliveries on time. “When a customer calls, I’m not calling a third party to go out and deliver something. I’m having a member-owned truck deliver to our members. We always have our customers’ best interest in mind,” says Aaron.
Another benefit bulk lubricant customers see is a reduction in packaging and waste. Bulk purchasing means there isn’t product left behind in disposable containers, and it negates the need to get rid of drums or pails.
Even in the extreme cold of a Canadian winter, our trucks are capable of pumping a tote of D-MO® 15W-40 into a storage unit in roughly 10 minutes. That’s less time out of your day dealing with deliveries and storage, regardless of the industry. Plus, on the off chance that a situation goes sideways late in the day, like a blown line in a piece of equipment, you’ll have access to the product you need.
