Did you know that refilling your propane tank is cheaper than exchanging?
If you exchange your propane tank you do not get any credit for propane you had left in the tank. By refilling you are only paying for what you need.
Read before you come to Nick’s:
We inspect all propane tanks for certification date and condition before refilling. If a propane tank is uncertified, damaged, has a bent or missing collar or foot ring, excessive rust or has been painted will not be refilled.
If you are in need of a new propane tank Nick’s has you covered. We carry 20 LB Propane Tanks, with a Scalloped Footring, Gray Powder Coated Finish, QCC1 (Acme) Valve, and OPD Overfill Protection Device. You can purchase an empty tank from Nick’s and have it filled immediately.
