R Shemilt from Bude. (Saving £250)
“When I last switched over 10 years ago it took over 6 months for things to be sorted out, double billing was a particular problem. This time it all went very smoothly with no problems and excellent com's from both suppliers. I look forward to next year's deal. The saving was a very important issue for be being disabled and on benefits.”
VC from Truro
“Felt a bit stupid that I didn't do it sooner. Previous online comparison sites never showed much of a saving so I didn't think it was worth the hassle. However with the collective my direct debit was instantly reduced, and after just 6 weeks my first meter reading has put me £25 in credit...long may it continue, and big thanks to CES for getting a good deal!”
Dom and Jill Fernando have made savings of £186 since switching energy supplier with Manchester Big Switch. They felt that despite being loyal customers for years, they were getting a raw deal from their old energy supplier.
“I just don’t think all these energy companies are transparent enough,” said Jill. “They report massive profits and make savings of their own, but these savings are never passed on to customers, especially if you’ve been with them for a long time.” After seeing an advert for the Collective on their local council’s website, they realised that much cheaper tariffs were available to them elsewhere.
Dom says, “Switching turned out to be really easy, and took very little time.” “The new guys have been good so far, and the customer service has noticeably improved since we switched, with very quick email responses about meter readings.” The money they’ve saved will be added to their spending pot for their upcoming holiday. Dom and Jill are prime examples of why researching energy suppliers to look for the best deals pays dividends, and are two of the thousands of happy readers who have saved money on their energy bills with us.
58 year old Paul Bignall had been relatively happy with his previous energy supplier for years until his bills suddenly increased and became far too expensive. An email from his council had informed him that cheaper tariffs were available, so he looked into switching suppliers. It was as easy to start the switch as clicking a link in the email, and he was surprised at how simple the whole process was. “Energy companies just want to make the biggest profits they can,” he said. “Until they were trying to make me stay, my supplier wasn’t focused on customer service or my best interests.”Paul found the convenience of the switch remarkable, with the results tables making it clear where the cheapest tariffs were. He has since been very happy with his new service. “Everything has run very smoothly, they’ve kept in contact, and already checked the meter!” The switch has saved him £242, which he’s using to put towards a holiday. Paul is just one of the thousands of happy people who have switched using our service and saved hundreds of pounds doing so.
