Moving house is expensive enough. The last thing you need is to waste money on energy in your new home. You should compare energy plans whenever you move!

Compare Energy Plans When Moving House to Save Money on Bills

Moving into a new home is an extremely exciting adventure. Unfortunately, it’s also a costly one for many. Whether you’re buying a new investment property or moving into your new rented home, the last thing you need is to waste money on your energy bills. But that’s exactly what many movers end up doing. As soon as you move into a new home, you’re placed on a “deemed contract” with the previous occupant’s chosen supplier. And this could see you waste good money on a needlessly pricey energy tariff.

Fortunately, it’s quick and easy to compare energy plans and suppliers to get a better deal from the day you move in. Here are some tips to help you compare energy plans without hassle or stress. 

Contact our friends at Switch-Plan

Sure, you could trawl the market to compare energy plans and suppliers yourself. But this can be a time-consuming and frustrating process. Instead, why not get in touch with our friends at Switch-Plan? They can search the market high and low for a tariff that’s perfectly suited to your needs. They’ll even manage your switch to get you faster access to cheaper energy. 

Know what to look for in an energy supplier

The Switch-Plan team can help you to make an informed choice about which supplier and tariff are best suited to your needs. Nonetheless, it’s important to know what you value most in an energy company. For instance, you may want to consider...

Value for money

Nobody wants to pay over the odds for their money. But there are so many suppliers and tariffs out there that whenever you compare energy prices, there’s pretty much always a better value plan out there. Consider switching to a paperless, online-only or dual-fuel tariff for extra savings.

Green credentials

The energy watchdog Ofgem is working with energy suppliers to clean up the energy market and ensure that suppliers of all shapes and sizes invest in more renewable energy. There are lots of suppliers that can offer 100% renewable energy at great prices. So you can save money while helping to save the planet. 

Customer service

As an energy consumer, you need to feel safe and supported when you have a question or something goes awry. Which is why you should always check out prospective suppliers on Trustpilot to see what their customers really think about them. 

Make the switch as soon as possible

The longer you wait, the more money you could waste on an expensive deemed contract. We recommend doing your due diligence in comparing energy plans before you move in, and making the switch as close to your moving day as possible. Remember that the switching process takes up to 15 working days. The faster you make the switch, the more you could save!
