About

A History of Great Service

Harms Oil Company was founded by Duane Harms in 1976. With three trucks and three employees, Harms Oil set out to serve farm and commercial customers in the Aberdeen, South Dakota area. Along with the withdrawal of several major oil companies from the area in the early 1980’s, came the opportunity to provide a needed service to those businesses left without supply. Throughout the following years, Harms Oil continued to expand, steadily building a reputation as “the friendly people”. Today, Harms Oil Company and its sister company, Dakota Oil, proudly serve hundreds of customers throughout the upper Midwest with a fleet of more than 100 transport trucks, bulk fuel and rail terminals, and warehousing operations.

Testimonials

My fuel purchasing decision is strictly price driven. I used to call around searching for that low price. I’ve found that Harms Oil consistently offers competitive pricing and their customer service is top-notch. Anymore, it’s just one phone call and I know I will receive a great price and great service."

Harms Oil understands the business.Fuel costs are a big line item for my trucking company. When markets are moving up they make sure my tank is full. When markets are down they allow me to take advantage of the lower prices. Other companies say they watch markets. I’ve found that Harms Oil truly does."

- Harms Oil Customer

As a farmer, fuel is important to me twice a year. Just because I’m a seasonal buyer doesn’t mean fair pricing and great service are any less important to me and Harms Oil understands that.Whether I’m pricing contracts in the off season, or busy in the field, I know I can count on Harms Oil Company."

- Harms Oil Customer

I thought all fuel companies were the same until I started doing business with Harms Oil. When I needed fuel sooner than expected, they re-routed a truck to make sure I didn’t end up with hours of down time. I have a smaller operation but that doesn't matter to Harms, they treat me like I'm a big account."
