Lorraine - Excellent experience dealing with you!

"I have been talking to Lorraine over the last couple of weeks about switching our gas/electric supplies. Lorraine was more than keen to help and went to a lot of trouble researching the best prices on the market for us. These were all confirmed by emails which allowed me to compare with our current supplier in a clear way. Ultimately our current supplier made an offer we felt was comparable to the best Lorraine had found and we decided to stay with them (B.Gas) but I am very grateful for all of the help she gave me - for no result as it happens. A pleasure dealing with you Lorraine!"

"Cheryl Sreenan delivered excellent customer service, professional and polite but very natural with it - it's great to deal with someone who knows their job and cares about their customers. Great savings too and a quick switch which is always good. Will be looking to switch other businesses when they are out of contract."
