Changing energy supplier when moving?
Tim Sealy-Fisher, Smarter Business Head of Key Accounts, gives some advice for changing energy supplier when moving to new business premises.
Tim’s top tips for changing energy supplier when moving
- Let your energy consultant know long in advance that you’ll be moving to new business premises – the more notice you can provide your consultant about moving properties, the more opportunity we’ll have to negotiate a new contract with suppliers.
- Have your consultant sense the potential for a contract novation – taking your existing prices and applying them to the new site. Depending on the time of year that you move site, it may be beneficial.
- Moving premises can provide a good opportunity to switch suppliers and move onto a cheaper deal, so have your consultant conduct a whole-of-market comparison to find the best contract for your business’ needs.
