As propane use increases at homes and businesses across Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, Lakes Gas has options for every propane cylinder need. We offer options for both retailers and residential customers alike. Read on to learn more about how we can make offering propane a reality that contributes to your success.
Full range of propane cylinder exchange options
We realize your customers have diverse fuel needs. Choose the propane cylinder exchange option that works best for you!
- Swap and Go Program for 20-lb. BBQ Cylinders: Commercial and residential customers can bring empty 20-lb. BBQ Cylinders to your business and swap them out for full cylinders there.
- Commercial Cylinder Exchange Program for 33-lb. Forklift Cylinders and 100-lb. Construction Site Cylinders: All you have to do is remove your tank, bring it to a Lakes Gas location, and swap it for a full tank.
Propane refills: How it works
It’s easy to offer your customers propane refills! Here’s how it works:
- Convenient. Customers come to your business with an empty cylinder
- Safe. One of your trained and certified employees will refill it from your Lakes Gas on-site dispenser. ONLY trained and certified employees should attempt to refill their own propane tanks. Don’t worry – we can help train your personnel!
- You’ll be in good company. You can find Lakes Gas propane dispensers at many gas stations and convenience stores located throughout Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Propane dispensers: We’ve got your covered
Lakes Gas partners with businesses so they can offer on-site propane cylinder refills. Here’s an overview of how we can help:
- Get your customers grillin’ and RVing. You’ll find frame-mounted tanks and pumps at convenience stores and gas stations. They’re ideal for filling grill tanks and tanks for recreational vehicles (RVs).
- Train your employees. If you’d like to set up one at your place of business, Lakes Gas will train your personnel on best practices for filling D.O.T.- approved propane cylinders.
- Ensure permits are in order. State and municipal authorities have strict regulations for dispensing propane. Lakes Gas will ensure that all appropriate and necessary permits are acquired and available to all parties involved.
