What Our Customers Say

Always surprised at how much they have here. Like most, I usually travel to Home Depot or Lowe’s for my major home improvement projects. However, I’ve found that more often than not I can find many of the supplies I need right here in town and at a fair price. I actually purchased a great snowblower here a couple of years ago which has served me well. The staff is helpful, so I can get in, get what I need and get back to my project in minutes instead of hours. Oh yeah, Benjamin Moore paints. I’m a regular, I would recommend you give it a try.


On the phone they were professional. Not pushy about the extended warranty. Delivered promptly and explained snow blower without rushing. Thank you!

The salesman was extremely helpful. Snowblower was delivered next day and that person also went over how to use it. Excellent customer service.

In need of a new snow blower of better quality than the one i now own i decided to shop on the internet and found the product i was looking for was carried locally at the Miller Place Brinkmann’s, I stopped by on Monday and was pleasantly surprised that they had all the available modelsi was considering on display . I was assisted by Dave D. who answered all my questions and concerns and advised me that if i was interested i could have the blower set up and delivered that afternoon at no extra charge. No pressure, no stress and best of all the delivery was made on time and as promised. I should also note that the delivery man Quinton was able to navigate his truck up a difficult driveway and did a walk thru of the blowers features. Very professional! In all, a pleasant experience with two outstanding employeesThus 5 Stars. I hope to be as fortunate with the snow blower when the time comes—–

VERY IMPRESSED ! I am a frugal educated shopper and after going to several big box stores and other Brinkmann hardware stores looking for help deciding between 2 high priced snow blower models I was blown away by the patience and courtesy extended to me after I asked one complex technical question after another. I was particularly impressed with Chris’ knowledge and professionalism. In today’s world of mediocre employees it was a pleasure dealing with exceptional ones, thank you. I left confident I chose the right model and the right hardware store.

Gary and Ron were great. I called up looking for an Ariens snowblower, and needed it that day before we were expected to receive significant snowfall in New York. I was able to pay over the phone and my new snowblower was delivered to my house in a few hours. The delivery driver’s were also great, however I can not remember their names. They showed me all of the features of the snowblower, and had it up and running for me, ready to go for the storm. This was my first purchase at Brinkmann’s, but you have earned a customer for life. Thanks again!

Brinkmann’s strives to provide our customers with both the best selection of products available for your home and top-notch customer service. When you have questions, we have answers. Also, feel free to give us a call, or stop into one of our Brinkmann’s locations! We’re here for your home.

Where To Get Your Propane Tank Refilled

If your typical answer to the question “Where can I buy a propane tank?” is “From a propane exchange program,” then we have some valuable news for you.

Did you know that propane exchange cages short-fill tanks to 15lbs? You can perform an easy check to see how much propane is actually in the tank. At Brinkmann’s, we provide a full-capacity propane refill. That means you get to keep your own tank (not an old, dented exchange tank that could be about to expire) AND you get approximately 30% more propane. With us, your propane tank will always be filled by a licensed and certified propane technician while you wait, ensuring long-lasting and safe operation.

As a propane supplier, we generally advise customers to keep a backup tank for grilling, so we understand the importance of safely handling multiple tanks. That’s why we’ve also prepared below some general safety tips and info below on how to store and handle your tanks.


Get a Propane Refill at Brinkmann’s Hardware

At Brinkmann’s, you can find a propane refill station conveniently near you on Long Island. You receive service by one of our licensed and certified propane techs, at a highly reasonable propane refill cost. Our experienced professionals fill up to 60lb tanks and conduct a safety inspection with each refill. They’ll even share their knowledge and teach you how to properly and safely use your propane tank. Each tank is also leak-tested to ensure it can be operated safely.


Propane Refill vs. Propane Tank Exchange

Refilling your propane tank is a much more effective solution because you get more fuel. The tanks you receive at exchanges are never filled to capacity. With a refill, you not only get more propane, but you spend less money as well.

Reusing your tank requires being diligent about tank maintenance and checking for leaks but, at Brinkmann’s, we perform safety checks so you have nothing to worry about. We’ve made it as easy to find a propane refill station as an exchange in your area, while your tank will be thoroughly inspected and tested to guarantee your safety and peace of mind.


Propane Safety

Propane is a relatively safe gas, but a propane gas tank should still be handled with caution. To ensure your safety is guaranteed while using propane, follow these tips:

  • Learn what propane smells like so it’s easier to detect leaks. It’s an odorless gas, but a compound has been added so, if there is a leak, it should smell like rotten eggs or a skunk’s spray. However, this smell might not always be noticeable.
  • Always check that the top valve is tightly closed to prevent leaks. Have your tank leak tested if you believe the valve may have been
  • Only lift and move the tank by the molded and shaped handles that surround the valve; never by the valve itself.
  • Store your extra tank outside, separate from any appliance or system that uses propane, in a well-ventilated and cool area.


Where To Store a Propane Tank in Winter

Additionally, when the propane cools down, the gas will shrink to a smaller volume and the pressure inside your tank will drop considerably. To avoid the risk of trouble during the cold season:

  • Keep your propane gas tank as close to full as possible.
  • Fill it at the start of winter if you don’t plan on using the propane gas tank.
  • Know the propane tank refill locations in your area.
  • Store a full tank in a utility shed or another small outdoor structure.
  • Never put a tank near a heater or fireplace; propane is flammable.
