We'd Like to Welcome You to Dead River Company

For over 20 years, Dorr Oil and Propane has proudly served the heating needs of Manchester Center, VT and the surrounding area. After thoughtfully considering who should continue to care for their customers, employees, and communities served, in July of 2023, the owners of Dorr Oil and Propane transferred ownership to Dead River Company.

Knowing Dead River Company's reputation for prompt, reliable, personalized service, the team at Dorr Oil and Propane was excited to join the Dead River Company team. Since doing so, the team has been warmly welcomed and feels right at home as valued members of the Dead River Company family.

A Few Words From Our Customers

Dead River has been an excellent company and very responsive to our needs. They removed our old oil boiler and replaced it with a Bosch propane boiler. We, as an older couple, are totally satisfied with Dead River!

A Few Words From Our Customers

We had an oil furnace removed and put in a new propane furnace. They did it quickly! They were on time and finished a few hours earlier then expected and it's working perfectly! Yes, I would recommend Dead River Company!!

A Few Words From Our Customers

I love the propane heater. The saleswoman I dealt with was easy to work with and the men they sent over for the installation were terrific! This was a great experience!
