Flexible delivery options
BOC Healthcare offers a range of delivery options to suit every level of need.

You can choose from aided and unaided deliveries, either day or night, whichever best meets your needs.
Standard delivery service
Next day deliveries1 are available to most customers for orders placed at our Customer Service Centre by 5pm.
This is an aided delivery service, where you are present to assist the BOC delivery driver in accessing the gas store at the time of delivery.

This unaided service (day or night) gives you a reliable 'Milkround' delivery service.
Our driver will exchange your empty cylinders with full ones on agreed days, so you will never need worry about running out.

BOC Healthcare can arrange to provide multipoint deliveries to suit your needs.
