“Used to be pants now the changes are really great”

Written on: 24/03/2015 by Kerrieb123 (1 review written)

I didn't have a very good experience with Spark when it was forced upon me by my landlord. They took over 20 minutes to answer the phone. But it seems they are now a company that listens to their customers. They answer the phones very quickly, always call back when they say they will they even offer a free number that is included in my mobile phone tariff that i can call free of charge. The live chat is excellent I've always had a great experience. The only thing i would like them to change… Read Full Review

“Best I've ever dealt with”

Written on: 18/03/2015 by austinduffy (1 review written)

This is by far the best energy company to deal with. When I moved house I changed supplier. Everyone on a comparison site was more expensive. I Had to contact Spark twice by phone and also tried the live chat. All three times the was no waiting, no diversions, no putting on hold, direct to the person who could answer my questions and helpful, friendly advice. Best energy company I have ever dealt with by a million miles. A credit to what most people regard as a difficult industry. Keep it up… Read Full Review

“A nightmare”

Written on: 13/03/2015 by AdaFitch (1 review written)

Having been with Spark for a number of years, i was so disappointed when i received an email saying my direct debit was going up by £20.12 per month. Obviously i rang them to say i think there has been a mistake, my account was £443.12 in CREDIT why do they want to charge me more, had reply "the system we use says so". Spoke to three different people in the 40 minute phone conversation who all said exactly the same, so I asked them to REDUCE my Direct Debit, this I was told could not be done… Read Full Review

“Still can't see my gas bill”

Written on: 02/03/2015 by Dunn1990 (1 review written)

I have been trying to see my gas bill online for nearly 9 months but still it is not there. It means I can't submit a meter reading and there are no bills. I complained about this a few weeks ago and got told it was fixed but it is clearly not… Read Full Review

“Poor service”

Written on: 18/02/2015 by rireland547 (1 review written)

Call centre staff were friendly and helpful,however I feel that Spark Energy is one of a growing group of suppliers who are abusing their power to trick customers. I understand the policies but believe it is ridiculous not to notify customers when they are overpaying by substantial amounts over a period of time and then to keep that money for over a month before refunding. Please take this complaint on board and do not reply with an explanation of what policies are in place.....I understand… Read Full Review

“excellent customer service”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by ElisaMyrick11 (1 review written)

I rang today as I was considering a change of supplier.One of the menu options was to receive a callback once my call reached number one in the call queue.I did this with trepidation as with so many large companies this could stretch to a week or not at all. Callback came within 5 mins. !!!! I was dealt with in a really pleasant and helpful manner and reached an arrangement as satisfactory as others on the comparison website (minus the £30 cashback of course),but to my mind worth it for the… Read Full Review

Great personal experience, I was very happy with the level of service I received and also being offered different options was a great first impression. I was made to feel like an individual rather than a number and was thoroughly satisfied that the person I spoke to was knowledgeable and very helpful. What a great asset to your company this man is and made a fantastic first impression… Read Full Review

“House moving in issues sorted.”

Written on: 30/01/2015 by AdolfoHumphrey106 (1 review written)

Have been in touch with spark over the phone, as I have recently moved into a property and for some reason previous tenants haven't switched the gas over, or even told me who it is, which caused quite a bit of confusion on my side. Staff at spark had a poke around to see whatsup and gave me a clear rundown of what is going on and who is the current gas supplier, now I can actually contact em and get all moved over to Spark… Read Full Review

“Seem helpful, But don't really care, I would give -5...”

Written on: 30/01/2015 by BrianHuffman (1 review written)

I will never be using or recommending spark for the following reason. After Charging for the wrong address spark have completely fobbed me off at every turn. The staff seem friendly while on the phone, as soon as I hang-up nothing seems to be done. Agreements have been made and broken, and every time I call they say it has been escalated, and on the next call? that's right, they don't even know I have a problem. It is absolutely ridiculous, as a HCAI work long hours and for the past few months… Read Full Review

“There at last”

Written on: 29/01/2015

Have been building up credit on our account so we had over £500 in credit. We e-mailed Spark on 3 occasions without any useful response. I noticed the web chat and contacted them via that. SR took the call and agreed to revise our Direct Debit and return the £566 excess in the next 28 days or less. The call was handled very efficiently and hopefully we will get our over payment refunded as promised. If only we had had service like that in the past. Sparks bills are not the easiest to… Read Full Review

“Helpful friendly service”

Written on: 28/01/2015 by ankaet (1 review written)

Initially I had great reservations about the service Sparks provides as my ex boyfriend had dealt with the electricity bill (failing to change it from my name to his after this flat's management agency had forwarded my name t Sparks without my permission) beginning of last year and didn't realise that the low direct debit payments were not covering the usage costs. Ok so the website wasn't clear and we were not informed of the increasing build up of debt so I feel there was fault on both… Read Full Review
