If you are wanting to know how you and your business can get cheaper business utilities, then this article will help.
The easiest and simplest way is to speak with the friendly team at the Business Utility Hub who have access to the best deals and offers that will meet your needs and save you money.
There’s no doubt that when it comes to accessing cheap business utility bills, then those customers who shop around will access the best prices.
The time to do this is when your current provider gets in touch with details of your next year’s contract rates and then use this as an incentive to find a new, cheaper provider.
Compare energy prices using a comparison website
In addition to contacting the Business Utility Hub or providers directly, you could compare energy prices using a comparison website.
While these sites offer convenience and a quick way of finding out what the potential market rate for your business will be, there are downsides.
The main issue is that the comparison site is probably not searching the entire marketplace so there could be better tariffs available that you will be unaware of.
Instead, you may find that the site points you to a recommended supplier and you will still need to contact them and negotiate directly despite filling in the relevant questions beforehand.
It’s also important that you do not agree verbally to a contract offer until you have seen, or at least understand, what is being offered to you. There is no ‘cooling off’ period for business energy contracts.
Business water utilities
Another potentially lucrative way of reducing overheads is to reduce the cost of your business water utilities.
At least it is if your firm is located in Scotland and England, where the business water supply markets have been deregulated and you are free to shop around for a new supplier at much cheaper rates.
There’s the potential, according to several surveys, to reduce your business water and sewerage services charges by around 20%, but not if you are in Wales and Northern Ireland because the markets have not been deregulated in these countries.
In the search for cheaper business utilities, you may find that it’s a complicated and time-consuming subject and you could hand over responsibility to those who understand how the market works and can access cheaper deals which means speaking with the team at the Business Utility Hub.
