ERC Environmental, Inc.

At ERC Environmental Inc., we pride ourselves on being the market leading oil tank removal company in all of New Jersey. We are fully licensed and experienced in the process of oil tank removal and soil testing. When you contact us for a free quote, we'll be completely up front and transparent - explaining exactly how oil tank removal works and providing you a single flat-rate fee that will cover the entire project from beginning to end. The reason we are contacted for a NJ oil tank removal is almost always because the clients want to sell their home, and the rusty underground tank is causing problems in completing a sale. Over time the old tanks corrode and sometimes develop cracks or holes, causing oil to leak into the surrounding soil, creating both environmental and public health issues. We look forward to building relationships with our clients and guarantee your satisfaction! **Free estimates provided over phone or email ERC Environmental also provides all your septic needs

Review by Kevin P. in Hackettstown, NJ
Stay far away from this company. Keith Correal of ERC treated me in a very dishonest and very unprofessional business manner. This company did not properly test my soil in an attempt to take me for thousands of dollars for a clean up that was not necessary. When I demanded to see the test result of the soil samples, Keith got very belligerent over the phone and only cared about payment and told me I could not get the no further action letter unless I paid more money because I had a big mess. He finally admitted that his company did not actually have test results from a lab and went only by a visual inspection and that I should trust his judgement. Well, I didn't and I am glad I didn't. He would only refund $390 of the $8,900 charged for the services not completed. ERC wants payment up front but then don't do most of the things in the estimate. They will not tell you how much they will actually charge until you have already paid them a lot of money with the understanding you will get what you paid for. They will just keep stringing you along milking you for every last penny. VERY UNETHICAL! After hiring another contractor which by the way are reputable and honest they properly tested the soil and found that the soil was actually in compliance with regulation avoiding a $30,000 ++ Clean-up that ERC was going to attempt to change me for a service that was unnecessary. (no big mess) If I had not demanded to see the test results from the lab this company would have gotten away with another bad deal. Please avoid the same mistake I made and stay FAR FAR away for this company. ZERO STARS.

Review by John N. in Little Falls, NJ
They came and removed the tank. Before I could understand what was happening a worker showed me some oily smelling dirt and told me to call the office. The office started pushing for a deposit on a $9,000 remediation project. When I said I was going to shop around for a better price for comparison and asked for a sample of the contaminated dirt, they refused and claimed I was doing something illegal. End of story I got the remediation resolved using legal means for a lot less than $9,000.
Response by ERC Environmental, Inc.: John, I am sorry to hear about your negative experience. The reason the operator onsite was unable to pull a soil sample was because he is not a licensed NJDEP subsurface evaluator. The sample taken would not have been a authorized sample to close out the incident number opened with the NJDEP. This should have been explained to you better. I am glad you were able to resolve the issue and again I apologize for your poor experience.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
