“Total Incompetence from Extra Energy”

Written on: 15/03/2017 by ColinMcL (1 review written)

We moved into our new house in February 2015. I emailed and telephoned our details and meter readings to Extra Energy and got an automated response to the email. A couple of weeks passed and I phoned again to ask for a final bill. I was told one would be in the post shortly. Over 18 months passed and a Final Red letter arrived from them addressed to the previous owner of the house. I passed this on to them and they contacted Extra Energy to have the bill split for energy we had used after… Read Full Review

“Figures Given By uSwitch Are Misleading And Incorrect!”

Written on: 30/08/2016 by kel-vin (1 review written)

Have used u-Switch before without problems but as my current deal for gas and electricity was coming to an end I used u-switch to compare the market and the best option (or so I thought) was with Scottish Power where I was informed I could save over £200 per year.

I went ahead with this but when I received confirmation and a start date from Scottish Power,their projections for the coming year were totally different from the figures quoted from u-Switch.Unit rates/Estimated Annual costs/Tariff

“Painless process to shift utility, but no changes in cost ”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by gbanerg (1 review written)

I moved from my incumbent to a new utility provider when Uswitch showed that they were ~35% cheaper than my current deal. While the move was completely painless, I was shocked to receive by my new provider (EON) an email (even before my first payment) saying that they need to increase my direct debit by 50%. Given it was before the 1st month makes be think that the lower rate initially was a gimmick to switch and now I am stuck for 12 months with a higher rate… Read Full Review

“No comparison without your phone number”

Written on: 14/01/2016

For security reasons I do not normally advertise my phone number. When I called uSwitch for a comparison I was told that unless I provided my phone number I would not be given a quote. That's almost rogue traderish. I haven't entered any deal or contract so why is it so importangt that they have my phone number ?… Read Full Review

“Uswitch lied to me”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by connestan (1 review written)

I called for a quote and I was lied to after I said I would check other comparison sites. They said that Uswitch website was the same as every other comparison site and I wouldn't get a better deal so I went ahead with Uswitch. BUT cancelled when I called another comparison site and got a better deal… Read Full Review

“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

“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
