3 September 2012: Case Studies - Metalworks saves £1,494 pa - Therapist £427
The energyhelpline Business Energy service has been assisting hard-pressed businesses across the UK save hundreds of pounds from their utility bills. With many businesses able to slash their overheads thanks to comparing and switching their Business energy supplier.
With the economic outlook still gloomy, many SME’s have taken the prudent step of assessing all aspects of their business to maximise their revenue. One easy way to trim costs is by taking the opportunity to address your business energy contract. Business owners that don’t compare can run the risk of either paying out of contract rates if they don’t currently have a supplier contract, or being automatically rolled onto a new contract with their current supplier with high rates.
Some recent success stories from businesses that have saved with us include a therapist in the North of England. She called our service a few weeks ago as she was unable to understand why her bills were so high even though her clinic was small. As she was out of contract she was paying over £1 a day in standing charges and 23p per unit of electricity. After ringing our Business switching service we managed to secure her new rates of 21p per day on her standing charge and 10.4p per unit of electricity, which enabled her to save £427 a year on her utilities.
Similarly we have the story of a metalworks in Wales that was facing an £8,479 renewal quote from their current Big Six supplier. After ringing us we managed to negotiate a deal for them which saved them £1,494 a year from that figure. An insurance broker in the Midlands also managed to save £933 on their quote, showing the savings possible when using our Business switching service to negotiate your new contract.
As negotiating business energy contracts is a time-consuming and complicated affair, many SME’s have yet to fully exploit the possible savings. Using our Business energy switching service we take the stress out of the process for you as we negotiate upon your behalf. Can you afford to let your business pay over the odds for your gas and electricity?
