If you want to move to a new business gas supplier and enjoy cheaper rates or better levels of customer service, then this article will help.
The Business Utility Hub team has years of experience in helping lots of clients make the switch to a new provider and lower their overheads when doing so.
Regardless of your reasons for switching, it’s important that you widen your search for a new gas provider and not just focus on the ‘big six’ familiar names.
That’s because the gas supply market place is a competitive one and there will be suppliers offering cheaper deals and other incentives.
Switch to lower business gas rates
Among the incentives to switch to lower business gas rates, will be the opportunity of having an energy consultancy look at how you use gas.
The aim is to reduce gas consumption, so your business enjoys greater savings and boosts your environmental credentials.
Other firms may offer a dedicated account manager to boost customer service levels.
It’s also worth bearing in mind for busy business owners who may be wary about switching business gas supply to a smaller firm, is that the market is still regulated by Ofgem to bring peace of mind.
Enjoying cheap business gas supply
Essentially, switching providers is not just about enjoying cheap business gas supply, though that is the biggest incentive.
And if your firm has not switched suppliers in recent years, then you may be moved onto a ‘deemed’ rate contract, or it may be called an out of contract tariff.
These prices tend to be higher, so the savings will be even greater as a result when you switch to a new provider.
Also, you could sign up for a deal longer than 12 months with some providers offering better and cheaper deals for those who sign up for 24 or 36 months.
This will depend on your business and your future plans, but it’s worth considering for those who believe prices may rise over the next year or two and want to be reassured when cash flow planning.
Some providers may even offer a deal of up to five years but you’ll need to appreciate that leaving these contracts early is more difficult and all firms should check the market every year to ensure they are not overpaying for their business gas supply.
If you want to move to a new business gas supplier, enjoy cheaper rates and better customer service levels, then it’s time to contact the experts at the Business Utility Hub who will be able to help you achieve these aims.
