I have just used Switch My Business…

"I have just used Switch My Business today to switch our gas supplier c/o Account Manager Mark Weeks - who offered an excellent service. I found the whole process very simple, quick and efficient, whilst also saving us money. Talking to an actual human person (Mark - who was concise, informative and had personality and humour!) on the end of the phone, and having all my questions answered was refreshing in this modern era of live chat and emails and mindless individuals!! I highly recommend you to switch your business now with Switch My Business."

Renewal has never been so easy!

"Carl rang to discuss our renewal for the Electricity. This is the second time we have renewed via Switch My Business after they arranged the initial transfer. As ever the options were clearly stated and the best deal agreed upon with no pressure."

Helpful and Patient

"Sharon was helpful and patient while we decided on the best new electricity supplier for our Club. She was able to offer us a fixed 3-year deal for only a few pounds more than we've been paying our current supplier (and much less than we were going to have to pay in future). I'm very grateful for her help."

Our church electricty

"Paying a silly amount for our church electricity. Went through Switch My Business website and came back with some better quotes. Janis rang straight away to discuss our options and found us a much better deal.She set it all up and provided the template to give notice to our previous supplier. Very straightforward and we are going to save at least £150 per annum. Great service"
