About Tank Solutions

Oil Tank Experts

For more than 40 years Tank Solutions has been performing oil tank removal, detection and soil remediation services for homes through New Jersey with great pride. Buried oil tanks were commonly used to heat homes at the turn of the century; more than 100 years later they have deteriorated and begin infecting properties. If ignored, a leaking oil tank can cost homeowners thousands in soil remediation and fines imposed by the state and Federal government.


Our professional staff of oil tank removal experts is fully licensed to quickly and safely detect an oil tank on your property, extract and dispose of the hazard, and leave your soil in a pristine healthy condition.

We take on the jobs that other companies CAN’T and WILL NOT do.

Tank Solutions understands and is sympathetic the huge inconvenience of having an underground heating oil tank removed from your property. Our staff is committed to making the experience as stress-free as possible. Our overall goal is to provide exceptional service and customer support for all your oil tank needs at the most competitive price.


Our staff will complete and submit the local permit applications on your behalf, advise you of potential schedule dates. Once scheduled, Tank Solutions will mobilize a top-notch professional field crew who will extract the tank and return things to normal as quickly as possible.


If your tank is “leaking” our engineering staff is immediately available to discuss options and provide the homeowner with the most efficient  means to complete a cleanup.
