We moved Chambersburg, PA in Sep 2005. No one from AmeriGas contacted me regarding the Gas tank in my back yard as I thought someone would. After about a year I contacted Amerigas Hagerstown, MD.
AmeriGas Hagerstown records showed there was about 99 ??? left and just a pressure test would cost $45.00. I stated we would not require Gas service.
Dec 07 we were contacted by the AmeriGas asking if we wanted the Gas tank filled. We agreed reluctantly. The tank was filled $313.60.
We used the fireplace for a couple of hours. A couple of months we received a bill for $69.24. I immediately shut off the gas tank's main value. We paid the $69.24.
On 22 July 2009 we received another bill from AmeriGas for $60.00 for "Tank Rental" (yearly begin: 07/01/09). Now being charged a tank rental fee for a full tank of gas. I paid the $60.00.
10 July 2010 received a bill from AmeriGas for $124.00. This bill came from AmeriGas Chambersburg. I was shocked to see the bill stated I had a previous balance of $94.00 and a LATE FEE of $30.00 for a total of $124.00. I was never aware of any AmeriGas account # 3736035395. On the phone they stated they do not have to notify the customer if they change accounts or location or if the annual rate increases from $60 to $94 dollars and there was a computer error where some customers were receiving Over Due notices of $30.
Amerigas is going charge me $98 for termination of service. They charge every customer the termination fee regardless of when a customer terminates service.
So in the end I will have paid about $313.00 to fill the tank AND $321.00 for a couple pounds of propane.
