Why do Businesses Hesitate When it Comes to Switching Energy Supplier?

Switching energy suppliers could save a business hundreds of pounds a year on their electricity and gas bills, but some companies can be too quick in pushing a new supplier away. If big savings can be made then why do small businesses hesitate when it comes to switching?

Common answers for not switching business energy supplier:

“Switching suppliers is too much hassle, it’s easier to stay with my current supplier”

Whilst you may think staying with your current energy supplier may be easier, you could be missing out on big savings. Plus who says switching is hard? Changing your electricity and gas provider is easier than ever before.

“I don’t want to be hit with hidden charges”

One of the biggest mistakes is signing a contract before reading the full terms of a contract. We can help you understand the different price elements that make up your bill, so if you don’t want to be hit with hidden charges, read the terms thoroughly before signing!  As long as you do this and you know exactly what you are paying for, you won’t need to worry about hidden costs.

“The prices aren’t much different so why should I bother?”

Even if the prices are only slightly lower than your current tariff, adding these up throughout the year can result in a great saving for your business. The smallest of changes can add up to the biggest differences!
