5 Reasons to Use a Business Energy Broker


Why Should You Use an Energy Broker?

When you’re running a business, keeping your expenses to a minimum is always a top priority. Finding the right energy deal can have a real positive impact on your finances, but the prospect of doing so is one many find a little off-putting. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to take control of your energy expenses. Here are a few reasons why using an energy broker will benefit you and your business.

1. You’ll Save Money

The wish to save money is, of course, your primary reason for even thinking about switching your energy plan. The last thing you want to do is waste precious funds on an unnecessarily pricey energy tariff. Going to an energy broker is a very easy way of ensuring you get the cheapest deal you can. Thanks to their ties with a number of gas and electricity providers and their constant monitoring of the energy market, energy brokers can always tell you what the most affordable tariff for you is.

2. You’ll Save Time

Running a business takes a huge amount of time and dedication. You’re always juggling a large number of tasks, most of which will take precedence over comparing energy prices and negotiating a new contract. Researching various suppliers and what they have to offer just takes up time you don’t have. Using an energy broker, however, makes the entire price comparison and switching process quick and easy on your part. The broker takes care of all the time-consuming parts for you, gathering quotes and handling all the paperwork that comes with switching.

3. You’ll Have Access to Expert Knowledge

You may know little about the business energy market and feel daunted by the prospect of searching for a good deal. If so, an energy broker is exactly the kind of middle man you need. Energy brokers are gas and electricity experts; they’ll be able to answer any questions you have and break down all the jargon into terms you understand. They’ll make sure you know everything you need to know about the tariff you choose to switch to and how much money it will save you.

4. You’ll Understand Your Options

There are a lot of different energy providers. You may know about the big six, but can you name many others? The suppliers you know about and would think to get a quote from aren’t necessarily the ones offering the most competitive prices. Through an energy broker, you may be introduced to a supplier you’ve never heard of which offers a tariff that is ideal for your requirements. Conversely, you may know exactly how much choice there is and feel overwhelmed by the number of energy providers and tariffs out there. An energy broker can narrow down the options for you and summarise why certain ones are best suited to your business.

5. You’ll Get All the Help You Need in the Future

Your relationship with an energy broker doesn’t end once you’ve switched your tariff. A good broker will be there when your new contract ends, ready to make sure you keep getting the best tariff available to you. This means that arranging your energy contracts in the future will always be as fuss-free as possible.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
