you receive a phone call saying we can offer cheaper electricity. So they start to speak non stop & you cant get a word in. All you want to do is get off the phone because you are sick of there constant pushing for you to agree to change to another company. If you reply i would rather stay with my current supplier they do not take any notice & basically tell you to change over.The company is just so pushy that it is off putting not giving you time to compare other companies.

Makeitcheaper is unbelievably pushy and they expect you to sign on straight away on the phone. They are praying on the vulnerable and the old. They do offer something but they wildly overstate the savings which are sometimes non-existent. This site seems to be stacked with fake reviews. Hint: the real ones are the ones with 1 or 2 stars for makeitcheaper! (read more)

These people were extremely helpful. We knew we were paying a lot and they helped us to update all our energy suppliers for home and business, we also changed our telephone and internet providers with their help. In fact, we just gave them the information and they did all the comparisons and dealt with the switchovers... so easy! Thank you. (read more)

We have used Make It Cheaper for many years now for most of our business costs. They have only failed once to beat what we have found ourselves, and that was due to a current contract with Scottish Power we had for a different building. Also, had to make an insurance claim this year due to a break in, and they still managed to only increase our premium by £200. Many quotes were coming back with an increase of £400 to £600 due to some kids trying their luck on finding cash on the premises.... (read more)

I've just renewed my electricity with Make it Cheaper and thought I'd done OK. About half an hour after signing up with Scottish Power through these guys I received a phone call form British Gas offering a deal which was significantly better - amounting to a saving of £400 based on my current usage. Don't be fooled by this lot - I'm now tied in to this for 3 years and as there's no cooling off period for businesses I'm truly stuffed. (read more)

Make it cheaper has made it so much easier for the small chrity I manage to compare and change providers of gas, electicity, broadband and phone. It takes the time out of finding the best deals, and if any problems crop up during the process, they are on hand to help you through it or act on your behalf if needed. The staff have been very helpful and have tailored the process to my organisation, and it is always easy to contact the same member of the helpline staff for continuity. Brilliant. (read more)

'Make it cheaper' could also be renamed to 'Make it easier'. It was very easy renewing contracts and they made sure they gave me all the information I needed. They told me that we should only be paying the 5% VAT rate and I've been able to retrospectively claim back money from previous energy suppliers. They have been very helpful and patient with repeating figures etc so that I can make sure I have all the information I require before making decisions. (read more)

Our church has used Make It Cheaper for several years. Each time our energy bill contract is due for renewal we get a reminder and phone call so we never get automatically switched onto a high rate. The very friendly staff offer very good advice tailored to our requirements.It was explained to us about the lower VAT and CCL charges we can claim as a charity. There is no pressure to take any particular company, it is completely unbiased. All forms to end existing contract are emailed to you... (read more)

... And you won't have to spend any more time sourcing. Very helpful humans are on the phones that speak English with clarity (pretty basic, I know but how many unintelligible call centre operatives have you had call you?). I found MIC on the web and they set up my first electricity supply and then found me a good deal at renewal when the first supplier wanted to hike the prices. I will be using their services again in the future and totally recommend them to all. (read more)

I have used makeitcheaper for many years but also use other avenues to search out the best deal for commercial energy supplies. Make It Cheaper have never failed to provide the best comparison since I have been using them and I intend to contact them at each renewal for their latest rates. Personally I've found it much more accurate if you tally up your KWH usage before you call and then they can really give you an accurate comparison. I have mentioned that it might be good to explain... (read more)

We used MIC last year when our business was really struggling. Since then, we rebranded and the business has gone from strength the strength. MIC saved us £34 per quarter on our phone bills, an average of £100 on gas bills and around £30 on our monthly electricy bills. This gave us an anual saving of £1696. Dealing with MIC was also very straight forward and simple. Changes from one supplier to another was seemless. I dont normally write reviews or give reccomendatons, however I was so... (read more)

Received a very helpful reminder phone call from Make it Cheaper. Spoke to helpful staff who went through the various options and then helped me to make a final choice.

Make It Cheaper offer me an invaluable service, not only acting as a reminder that my energy contract (or any other contract for that matter) is due for renewal, but thay also somehow manage to find a way to beat the prices of the energy companies themselves! I am impressed with their standard or work, speed of response, and no pressure approach. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to renew any of their utility contracts. (read more)

Have used Make It Cheaper for a couple of years now and would highly recommend them. As a joint business owner of a busy small business time is always extremely limited, I don't have time to spend hours trawling comparison websites, but they do it all for you! They contact you within the window of expiry of your current contract (which is another good feature as I would probably forget!) and give you the best options, which have always saved us money. Then there is no hassle with loads of... (read more)

I have been using Make It Cheaper for quite a few years now to achieve the cheapest energy costs for the two charities I'm treasurer for. They are easy to use - as they do all the work! I also like the way they contact me before contracts are due for renewal. i find the staff very pleasant and friendly, but also extremely professional, explaining everything in terms that are easy to understand. If I was a business person, I would definitely use them for phone, broadband and insurance too. (read more)

I can now forget about my business electricity supply. No more worrying about termination dates and cheapest tarriffs. I am contacted each year when the review window opens with plenty of time to decide and complete any necessary paperwork.

If I opt to change suppliers all termination letters are emailed to me for signing. The service provided is helpful, friendly... (read more)

The company were friendly and efficient. There was no pushy sales call and they listened to what I had to say. Their deal on renewal was better than I could get and I did look around. The process was fast to complete with all the relevant paperwork sent through via email. Other companies have required us to scan in signatures and send a lot of other information so it was nice to have a quick and easy process to follow. I think the phone call took about 10 minutes which didn't eat into... (read more)

Process was very clearly explained at every stage, advisor was very personable with a demeanour that was informal enough to form a rapport but formal enough to remain professional and maintain confidence in him. The tariff we were advised to take was considerably cheaper than our existing one, and will save us a considerable amount of money by the time it become active for the winter. Sending an email with approved wording for cancelling existing contracts was a nice touch, and being able... (read more)

Very straightforward, with no complicated sales spiel. They simply took my electricity cost and found me a cheaper supplier, then done everything to make the switch, taking all the hard work away from me. When the time came for me to give notice to switch again, they got in touch in plenty of time to discuss my options. There was no pressure on me to take the product they found for me, and on one occasion I was unable to switch my telephone line due to the stipulations of my contract, but... (read more)

We tried Make It Cheaper for our business energy and have been pleased with the service. We were offered a good deal and having renewed for a second year we found the service clear and easy. Once we agreed a contract, signing an e-doc online was much easier than the verbal contract offered - and the renewal was done quickly. I'd recommend the service to anyone for anyone who want to drive the cost of their bills down - and do it with the minimum of fuss! (read more)

After spending time calling around the big 6 energy suppliers I thought I had identified the best deal with British Gas. On a whim I called make it cheaper to sense check the price I'd been given. Their adviser was able to track down a cheaper price within minutes and was able to beat the "best" price that the same supplier had quoted direct. I can't praise enough the quick and courteous service that I received. On a different supply when they weren't able to match a price quoted their... (read more)

It takes all the hassle out of this and leaves us free to devote the time we might have spent on it to billable work." (read more)

I write to say thank you for the help, assistance and advice I received from one of your staff when I contacted your company to switch suppliers.

I found the person I contacted - Roger Burgess - to be very clear and competent. He explained what could be done about our gas supply, and what, after we had discussed it, he would do. He communicated when he said he would (a rare pleasure these days) and clearly knew his job. He remained cheerful and helpful even though he could see that the way things were going Makeitcheaper was not getting to win any business.

Dear Roger Burgess
Thanks for your help and advice, it was excellent.
I initially contacted makeitcheaper.com to compare electric prices due to a dispute that I had with British Gas Business over their " Out of Contract Charges "

I would like to thank you for your excellent advice and help in finding a better rate for Skipsea Methodist Church's electricity.
As you suggested, I approached several suppliers direct and despite our very low consumption, British Gas offered us a standing charge of 41.86p per day and a unit rate of 11.48p, which is lower than our current supplier, npower. However, they also generously gave us £100 credit and a one-year contract, which means that our standing charge for the... (read more)
