Are you tired of feeling like a contestant on a game show when ordering floor care products? Do you wish there was a more convenient and transparent way to get the supplies you need? The ultimate showdown between ordering products via an online store and ordering over the phone and comparing it to the mystery of fuel cards!

Fuel Cards: The Great Unknown

Imagine this... you're at the fuel pump, ready to fuel up your trusty van with your fuel card. You're feeling confident because the fuel card company promised you the very best price every week in their email last Friday. But wait, what's the cost per litre? Nobody knows!

The fuel card companies boast about their amazing prices, but do they really deliver on their promises? Many floor sanding contractors and floorcare professionals found out the hard way during the lockdowns in 2020 and 2021, followed by the very painful fuel shortages around the UK and the massive fuel price increase. Many Flooring Contractors and Floorcare professionals, including floor sanding companies, were lured in by the initial honeymoon period of low prices, only to discover later that the price we were charged for fuel via our fuel cards was as much as 10 pence per litre more expensive than what I could have paid at the pump on the day I filled up! - Wore of all - These are BP prices, and as you know - BP is not the cheapest place to buy your fuel. Talk about a shock to the budget!

It's like a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You start off excited about the great fuel card deal you've scored, feeling like you've hit the jackpot. But then, the reality hits when you receive your invoice and see that the price has jumped up after the initial honeymoon period. It's a budget-busting surprise that leaves you scratching your head and wondering if the fuel card was worth it.
