How to Switch Energy Bills
Gas and electricity is a part of life, but sometimes you want to shop the market on your providers to one that better fits your needs. Maybe you’re happy with your provider, but they aren’t available in your new suburb. Maybe you want a better deal with another provider, or have found a discount option that you’re eligible for. Whatever the reason, switching energy bills doesn’t have to be a chore. With the right support you should easily be able to switch.
If you are moving house you will just need to let your current provider know and they can switch over your plan. It can take a few days to get it switched over, and you may need to pay a transfer fee, but otherwise it’s very easy to move your plan from one plan to another without thinking about it too much.
The only downfall of requesting a transfer with your existing provider is that you may be missing out on a better deal with another provider. This is why it’s always good to shop around and do your research before committing.
Looking for a new plan
If you are looking to move providers, whether you are shopping the market or not happy with your current rates, there are a few ways to research your options. Some people prefer to look at the details themselves, and if this is the way you like to approach comparing energy bills we have a few tips on getting the right plan.
Discounts and offers
Providers want you to stay for the long-run, so if you are looking at your options make sure to ask what offers or discounts you are eligible for. Some suppliers offer bundle prices and added bonuses when you combine bills.
Your average usage
Make sure to look at your average gas and electricity usage for your household and use that to gauge your average spend. This is what you can use to compare with other providers, to see if they can beat the price or match it.
You want a plan that suits your lifestyle and preferences, so ask your prospective provider about what contracts are available, what their exit clause is and how you can pay your bills or see your usage.
Companies that do it all for you
However you might not want to do all the work looking for the perfect match, especially if you’re already thinking about all the other parts of moving out. If you are scrambling for time but still want to find a great plan you can use an external comparison company. A lot of the time when you sign a new contract for a property they will recommend a company that will do all the research to get you set up. No need to lift a finger!
