“Nothing but hassle and stress”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by MaryjaneMcWilliams (1 review written)

USwitch is only interested in their commission. My experience was a disaster. I ended up being billed twice by BOTH energy companies. USwitch never handled the switch correctly as promised. They were useless. No start date, no last meter reading, in fact no switch until I chased it up 11 times… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2015 by KayaMcClellan (1 review written)

Uswitch recommended I switch over to Isupply energy, over a year ago worst move ever. To top it all they owe me over £133; admit they owe me it, this was pre-Christmas despite many calls still waiting. Never use either again… Read Full Review

“Absolute Rubbish”

Written on: 14/01/2015

Cancelled a switch request on line but still received an e mail saying my details had been passed to a new supplier, phoned u choose and was told yes the details had been sent and that I couldn't have cancelled on line and they were unable to cancel by phone, only way to cancel was to phone the supplier, I did this and was kept waiting on hold for 25 mins only to be told when I finally got through that the switch had already been cancelled. Worst customer relation dept I have ever… Read Full Review

“Be careful....”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by Mirai93 (1 review written)

Used U-Switch to change from EDF to Scottish Eletric. Their comparisons indicated SE were much better value (we shall see...), so I used them for the switch-over. Unfortunately SE it appears are utterly incompetent, incapable of taking 3 simple readings correctly. Their CS is abysmal, even going as far as to hang up on me after making me wait an well over an hour for their callback!! As such I would urge caution when using U-Switch: Though the deal's might look better (and I am growing… Read Full Review

“Energy suppliers”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by MaryjaneWheeler39 (1 review written)

On your recommendation I recently switched to First Utility for energy supply. Unfortunately , I gave them an incorrect reading for my Gas Meter. I immediately realised what I had done and tried to rectify it. This has proved to be one of the worst experiences of my life and I promise that in future I shall not have any dealings with either U switch or First utility. Before you recommend any company you should acquaint yourselves with its capabilities and think of the damage it can inflict on… Read Full Review

i telephoned uswitch at 12.09 today. seems the recipent couldn't hear me, and terminated the call with "go and get yourself a new life" having been an employer over the years, this being would have been instant dismissal historically. tried sending email complaint to sales director and m.d. to receive automated response telling me a reply would take 7 days - because they were busy - suffice to say, go compare were courteous and secured my business would i consider uswitch again, well, work… Read Full Review

“Free wine offer - No voucher”

Written on: 10/02/2014

I took up a deal to switch energy suppliers with a free wine voucher included in the offer some 6 months ago. U switch have failed to honour this or respond to emails and phone calls. Although not an over riding factor in the switch I feel customers are being mislead. I will not be using their service in the future… Read Full Review

“Not interested in following up”

Written on: 05/02/2014

The website was straightforward to use to request a switch from ScottishPower (too expensive and have you tried ringing their call centre recently?). However, after the initial email in December congratulating me on my switch, I heard nothing from the new supplier or Uswitch. After 3 weeks, I emailed Uswitch asking them to confirm the switch was going forward. After a further 3 weeks, I had a reply from Uswitch confirming they had passed the information on. This isn't the sort of response time… Read Full Review

Shepherdsdelight's Comment

Written on: 14/04/2014

My experience entirely. Used Uswitch to switch to Scottish Power. Received e-mail from them confirming the switch but on hearing nothing from Scottish Power I telephoned Scottish Power who said they had no record of receiving the switch request. Phoned Uswitch who wanted my switch reference number. Did not have this as thought it would be on the switch confirmation e-mail. It wasn't. Uswitch said someone from customer services would phone me back. They didn't. Since then have received numerous e-mails from them congratulating me on my alleged savings. Had to do a new switch through another company. Switch not yet completed and do not know whose fault it is.

“no explanations”

Written on: 02/02/2014 by noswitch (1 review written)

I have been duped. Reassured that I'd be switching both gas & electricity providers and promised frozen rates for 15 months, I had an outstanding payment (£100) which was instantly made to the electricity company and 15 days later Uswitch simply informed me that the switch was being blocked. No reasons given, no personalised message or advice offered. There appears to be no means of reply to emails either. My electricity company continues to overcharge me and only offers an address to write… Read Full Review

“Poor documentation and failure to respond to queries”

Written on: 29/11/2013 by JMeredithHoward (1 review written)

I used uSwitch to review my gas and electricity charges to select a better deal. Switched Gas with one supplier and Electricity with a second supplier to a fixed price dual fuel deal with the existing electricity supplier. Website was straightforward, promised huge savings, and enabled an easy selection and switch. Problem 1 - confirmatory email failed to provide any details of the calculations displayed by the website Problem 2 - no reply to request for clarification - just an email saying… Read Full Review

“Far too pushy!”

Written on: 14/11/2013 by ChrisBradley (3 reviews written)

After getting a horrible shock from my energy supplier (Southern Electric) I decided that I had to switch. The obvious choice was BBC favourite U-Switch, so after trying their confusing website I thought I'd give them a call. How disappointed I was. Their call staff seemed to be on commission as it felt like they were trying push me to a certain tariff and supplier really quickly so they could get straight onto the next customer, instead of listening to me and my poor experiences with the… Read Full Review

“Really good service”

Written on: 14/11/2013 by jostone1 (1 review written)

My energy supplier, npower, mentioned in a call about something else that they were about to increase my energy bill on their standard rate 30%! Even though I was expecting a rise in line with the announced 8-10% this winter, I had definitely not been informed of this increase. 30 PER CENT INCREASE, you read that right. I had a look on a couple of comparison sites and called uSwitch to see if somebody could explain what npower thought they were doing with my bill. The advisor (helpful… Read Full Review
