Project: Repair an Oil Fired Boiler or Radiator Heating System
Haven't received bill yet so will reassess that afterwards. Pendergast Oil came out to do a tuneup and came back to clean smoke pipe as basement was smokey. They came out quickly and were very thorough.

Project: Repair an Oil Fired Boiler or Radiator Heating System
Hired them to do an annual oil boiler tuneup. Did a great job, taught me a lot of things I didn't know about my boiler, and done at a very reasonable price.

We couldn't have hired a more knowledgeable, courteous, professional, than Prendergast Oil Co. His expertise and experience was obvious from the moment he came in the door, wiping his feet and giving us a full primer on the working of our old steam radiators! He then walked the whole premises, inspected and explained the condition of each radiator, and looked over our burner. We would certainly use his services again, and would recommend him to anybody looking. My wife even told him he should have been a teacher!

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
