Should You Switch Your Business Gas Supplier?
As we head into the cold winter months, the question of energy bills may become acute and business owners may be asking whether they should switch their business gas supplier.
Essentially, all firms and organisations should check that they are not paying more than is necessary for their gas supply needs.
You could do this by contacting gas suppliers directly and getting a quote from them.
The downside to this approach is that you may find comparing these deals on a like-for-like basis difficult because each supplier will tailor their offering to your needs with different criteria.
Business gas renewal letter
The best time to look at switching suppliers is when you receive a business gas
renewal letter which will inform you of your next year’s deal.
This is the prompt to find a new supplier and you can also use an online gas supplier comparison site.
While the sites may give you an idea of the market rate for your firm's needs, the downside is that the site may not be searching the entire marketplace, so you may miss out on better and cheaper deals.
However, it's still important that a firm carries out a comparison exercise every year to help ensure they keep a handle on their overheads and other potential increased costs, such as energy bills.
Sourcing cheap business gas rates
Potentially the easiest way of sourcing cheap business gas rates
is to speak with the team of experts at D-Energi who will search the entire marketplace and deal with the switchover process as well.
It's at this point you should know when your business gas contract comes to an end so you do not pay termination fees by moving before this end date.
It's also worth noting whether your supplier has moved you automatically onto a deemed contract, which tends to be dearer, and if so you may not need to pay termination fees and can move freely from this.
When looking for a new, cheaper gas supplier, then you'll need other pieces of information and most of this will be found on the latest gas bill.
Perhaps the most important is the gas meter number, so a potential supplier will know exactly where your business premises are. Also, there's no loss of supply when you switch between providers.
