BURY, England, September 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Smaller Gas Suppliers to Save British Households Thousands
Millions of households are being urged to shop around for their gas supply after the Big Six were discovered to be charging up to three times the wholesale price, according to Ofgem's Supply Market Indicator report.
While the wholesale cost of gas has halved over the last six months, Ofgem's report suggests that supplier profit margins are set to double. Following these projections, alongside the fact that smaller gas suppliers can afford to charge a fraction of the price, some of the Big Six's customers are beginning to question what they are actually being charged for and whether it is fair.
Director of 1Gas, nationwide gas connection experts, Richard Hearne, has experienced the frustration of the Big Six's customers first hand:
"This frustration from the British public isn't a new thing. People need to be aware that by shopping around for a smaller gas connection specialist and gas supplier, they can receive better customer service for a fraction of the price companies like the Big Six are charging. Our dedicated team make sure our customers get the best service and the best deal for their gas connection needs. Unlike some large gas companies, we offer free quotes for our gas connection services."
The recent figures also show British Gas customers could save up to 25% by choosing a smaller supplier. Richard Lloyd, of Which?, told the Daily Mail that shopping around with smaller gas companies and taking the time to find the best deal will help millions of households save a significant amount of money.
Although a fraction of the size of the Big Six, smaller gas specialist companies will charge significantly less whilst providing much more and will shop around for you, so whether you need a gas meter, gas connection or gas supply combination, you are guaranteed to get the best deal.
A Trustpilot reviewer highlights the differences between his experiences with British Gas and the smaller gas specialist 1Gas, when arranging a gas connection to his property:
"The price I was given from BG for my job was £6000, 1Gas did the same job with much more guidance, explanation and breakdown for £1300. Always 1Gas, never British Gas."
