Our Story


At Socal our aim is to provide an unrivalled range, an unbeatable service and expertise built up with over 20+ years of experience. If we can't help, then it's either not available or can't be done!

Socal (a shortening of Southampton Calor Gas Centre) is the name we've used ever since we started trading online back in 1999, when we discovered there's a big wide world out there beyond Southampton and the U.K.!

We've been around since 1989 as a privately owned, family run business supplying Calor gas and equipment that runs on LPG (Calor), we are one of the largest official Calor Gas distributors delivering gas across the South.

Customers are our number one priority, quite simply we can’t live without them so our aim is to provide you with the best quality equipment and gas at the best possible price. At our flagship gas appliance Showroom here in Southampton, we sell anything and everything to do with gas, if you are ever in the area please call in and see us, you won’t be disappointed!

 As well as the obvious products, we specialize in 4 main areas:

 (1) Outdoor Living products with an unrivaled range of barbecues, patio heaters and accessories on display year round.           

(2) Leisure gas appliances for Camping, Caravans and Motorhomes, from the regulator to the cooker and every part in between.

(3) Marine gas appliances, from cookers to heaters, gas alarms to locker boxes.

(4) Portable Gas Heaters, things have improved greatly over the last few years and can now offer a complete range.


We run our own fleet of vehicles for local gas and appliance deliveries in and around Southampton and throughout Hampshire and South Wiltshire and in addition, we also have a servicing department where we can repair and maintain all of your portable gas appliances.


If you have any comments or suggestions please let us know.
