“Terrible”

Written on: 21/08/2015 by ArmaniReeves246 (1 review written)

Avoid this company at all costs!!!! we moved house twice whilst with them and they caused us months of hassle every time because they kept putting our meter readings in wrong which caused the old suppliers to send us bills of over £600. The customer service centre in Liverpool is terrible, I spoke to a Scouse girl who had a terrible attitude and no idea how to speak to people. To top it off they took over £1300 out of my bank account with no notice, again because they entered wrong meter… Read Full Review

“SHOCKING CUSTOMER SERVICE”

Written on: 15/08/2015 by StuartNutter (1 review written)

A company completely devoid of any reasonable practices.I had a 2 years contract with Scottish power which went without a hitch paying £70 a month which covered my consumption,on renewal of the next 2 year contract they increased my monthly payments to £300 an month,even though they had my previous 2 years usage to go off,and read my meter after 30 days and my consumption was (guess how much??) £70.After calling them they said they would reduce my monthly payment to £5 until the account… Read Full Review

“Awful, awful company. ”

Written on: 13/08/2015 by MakennaWeeks226 (1 review written)

This company is awful - there is no other word for it. They acquired me as a customer after pursuing me by phone several times about switching the prepayment card I was using (along with 5 other students) in my property. We declined and they continued to call us to get us to switch, assuring us "they only needed a name and address to send the card to - simple as!" Eventually we agreed. They have now set about pursuing us with a debt collection company claiming we have run up a credit debt… Read Full Review

“Abysmal”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by ibNichols313 (1 review written)

We are finally changing away from Scottish Power - their customer service has been beyond terrible. Through a simple mistake by my landlord while moving in, my first name was misspelled - this was not fixed at any stage by Scottish Power. Furthermore the bills pretty much just turned up when they wanted with zero transparency and sometimes my email account was notified, sometimes it wasn't. I'm absolutely delighted that we're finally getting rid of this and would urge anyone who doesn't have… Read Full Review

“Terrible Service ”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by teamcott (1 review written)

After I cancelled my account I was owed £600 for over paying. After numerous hours spent on the phone they agreed to pay back the amount. They then took another £100 out of my amount out of my account and said I had to contact my bank to get it back. Insane - DO NOT USE!… Read Full Review

“Why are they even allowed to operate?!”

Written on: 29/07/2015

Reading all the reviews, they sum up my experience totally (could easily use a swear word here but will say 'frustrated' instead). From time of opening account, they messed up the meter readings - took them 3 months and many phone calls to correct; then they decrease the direct debit because account in credit - you would think 'wonderful' but then only to find your account in debit when you come to the end of your contract. Never mind you have been giving them regular meter readings to ensure… Read Full Review

“Absolutely appalling - DO NOT GO WITH THEM!”

Written on: 28/07/2015 by DaisyCarter116 (1 review written)

After taking their so called 'Platinum Fixed Energy cover with boiler cover - they changed my direct debit from £80pm to £190pm despite giving regular meter readings and with no explanation. My annaul boiler service was long overdue and I had to chase them for 7 months. When they finally came out they condemed my boiler, said my carbon monoxide levels were excessively high - cut off my gas, removed the boiler and told me they wouldn't cover me - I had to go to a third party. Ignored my… Read Full Review

“What a Disasterous Experience!”

Written on: 23/06/2015 by Flores154 (1 review written)

This is my second review of SP in recent months and, as far as I'm concerned, nothing has improved. After a delay of six months for them to update my account after a meter change (another story!) it has taken them a further four months to sort out my final payment and close my account after I moved to another supplier. The final straw came last week when, on 18th June, SP phoned to say they were sorry I was leaving them and, as I was a valued customer they could offer me a good deal if I… Read Full Review

“What a complete overpriced disgusting power source!!”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by richardwilliamgeorge (1 review written)

I wish I could give a lower rating than 1 star. I recently moved into a new house that was powered by scottish power. I have been charged triple what I would normally pay with Npower for a month. Considering that I didn't move in until 2 weeks after the meter reading began, so was here for 1 week!! It is outrageous than any company can charge nearly £100 for a weeks supply of gas and electricity when I get charged usually £40 a month with NPower! I am glad I have terminated the contract… Read Full Review

“nice tariffs, diabolical customer services”

Written on: 18/06/2015 by stevegtuk (1 review written)

Last week I checked my account and found I was £371 in credit, I have made a point of asking Scottish power on numerous occasions, not to refund me as I want to keep my monthly payment down and also have back up if there is any sudden change in my future finances. On Friday, when I checked my account to put in meter readings, I found out they decided they were going to refund me and raise my direct debit payments. I got straight on the phone and requested again that I not be refunded. the… Read Full Review

“Absolute Complete Joke of Company ”

Written on: 15/06/2015 by dbinq (25 reviews written)

I switched to Scottish Power. They never asked for a final meter reading and sent Eon a estimated final readying which was more than my readings were on, I gave them my readings and they said they will sort with Eon I paid Eon my next final bill but then it turned out I am in credit by nearly £100 ... but they cannot refund it as Scottish Power gave them an estimate. I phoned Scottish Power to find out what the hell was happening. They basically told me it is tough nothing they can do… Read Full Review

“Scottish Power should call it a day and give up”

Written on: 13/06/2015 by 55Kirby (1 review written)

These people are beyond incompetent. I have called them so many times to sort out my account and now I will have to call the Ombudsman as Scottish Power customer service told me today that they couldn't sort it out! They are beyond a joke. I will be switching to another supplier as soon as they sort out what they owe me… Read Full Review

New tenant in property supplied by Scottish power, took them 3 days to get my gas sorted and I was informed on 2nd evening someone would be out within 4 hours to sort supply, got to 2 in the morning no one had been.

“Worst customer service. experience ever”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by FinleyGoodwin221 (1 review written)

Bought a new house in Sept 2014. It has Scottish Power Gas & Electric meters so contacted Scottish Power to set up an account and direct debit. Multitude of phone calls and e-mails since then to customer service, CEO and Director Support Group. This has been going on for 8 Months now and still no account, no direct debit and no bills. This is shocking for a major energy company to operate this way. I am being held captive as, can't switch supplier with no account number. Surely this is not… Read Full Review

“No response to mistakes made”

Written on: 22/05/2015 by Mountainwalk (1 review written)

In early April I spotted a mistake in the billing by calculating units multiplied by tariff price which meant I was owed £247.76. After 5 phone calls nothing has been done. The responses I got to the emails I wrote did not make any sense at all. They obviously did not understand. I wrote a letter explaining everything fully together with a print out from my online account. This was scanned in and I received an email talking about resolution. Nothing has been resolved. I tried to phone this… Read Full Review

I have been phoning and writing since last October having moved in the house in July 14 and after threatening with Watchdog, Ofgem and my MSP they finally sent a bill.... the wrong one from a house I had in 2013.!!!. Aaaaaaaaarrrraghhh. I am definitely going to Ofgem and Ofcom and anyone else who will listen. They are useless and cant understand plain English.

“Do not use this company if you want communcation”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by Sonsmum (3 reviews written)

I have just left Scottish Power due to their complete inability to communicate with me. Despite repeated requests for information from them regarding my bills I did not receive any. If i did get a reply it just stated an apology and left you with no further information. Eventually I ran out of patience and swopped to another company out of frustration. Today I noticed that they have taken over £180 in payment for a final bill which I have had absolutely no notice off. I know that the money… Read Full Review
