Having to switch energy supplier can be a hassle if you don’t know what information you need to provide. We have compiled a simple guide to help you navigate the switching suppliers.

1. Information you need

When switching suppliers, it’s important you have the following information:

The best way to find this information is on one of your recent energy bills. Alternatively, most people have an online account with their supplier, simply log on to your account and your information, tariff name and bills will all be available for you to view on your account.

2. Finding a new supplier

One of the best ways to find a new supplier is to shop around and phone different energy companies and compare deals. Alternatively, you can use a price comparison website that collects all the standard packages from energy suppliers in one place for you to compare.

We can help do this for you, and negotiate competitive prices on your behalf! Book a consultation today to find out how we can help you.

4. Signing the contract

Once you have chosen your supplier, the last stage is to confirm the new supplier, sign the contract and confirm your payment method.

Whilst we have tried to create a simple guide to help you switch suppliers, the truth is that switching suppliers can be tricky and time-consuming.

By coming to BP, we can provide you with a dedicated account manager who can work with you to understand your business needs before using their connections to find you a bespoke package at the best rate, saving you time and money.
