    I've just signed up to the Volkzone deal with BOC for Argoshield Lite and the online document I filled in said £50.89 incl VAT for the yearly rental on the form.

    Thanks guys, I questioned it and they had given me the wrong price. It should be £50.89 incl VAT not £61.09 for the rental

    @addjunkie - you might want to go back and query yours :)

    Cheers,

    MM

    What do you mean by "how big is a Y cylinder?"

    Physical size? Contents?

    They're about the same height as a 'pub' bottle but fatter.

    93x20cm according to BOC site.

    Hi Guys,

    Do you have the collection charge with the Volkszone deal?

    Hi. Is this deal still available. I see members talking bout it still,but the link is saying the offer now expired. Any pointers please how to go about it. There is actually a boc plant here but they tell me i have to ring a agent for gas.they dont sell it only make it there . Thanks

    As far as i know, the Volkzone offer is still available, BOC seem keen to attract any new business at the moment,

    Easiest way to find out is to email one of the email addresses from back up the thread. I emailed in the morning and was able to collect that evening. I think it's now called the "Hobby welder" deal instead of Volkszone iirc

    I took out the offer about a month ago so it's still going. I just walked in and did it over the phone in the store.
