“unexplained Bills”

Written on: 08/09/2021 by Smilersos (1 review written)

The Bills you get are unexplained - they sell their business on cheap prices; however, the Bills have added money. Now, they may be legitimate but are unexplained. It takes several hours to get to speak to someone. The recorded phone message says you have a five-minute wait but this turns into hours. I guess it is all designed to get rid of you and to accept it but I don't accept it. I would not recommend this service to anyone… Read Full Review

“Broken promises”

Written on: 08/06/2021 by 314Erickson (1 review written)

I inherited prepayment meters when I moved into this property. Called to ask for normal credit meters and was given a date for installation.....date came & new prepayment meters were put in. 3 weeks later electric meter lit up like a Christmas tree and not accepting any credit. Despite me informing UW on Friday they have insisted I run out of electric before agreeing to send out an engineer.. Now, no electric and possibly a 4 hour wait.....not impressed at all. The stars are for the very… Read Full Review

“HOPELESS”

Written on: 25/05/2021 by Bryan493 (1 review written)

After 1 year we got a bill for over £900. After 1 hour wait we found out that when we bought the house Utility warehouse had to manually connect the smart meters to their system. They did the gas but did not connect the electricity. When it was connected 1 year later they sent us a massive bill. We agreed to pay it over several months paid the April bill and then got a demand for full payment within 3 days or they would take us to court. After an email and a letter to the chairman there is… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/12/2020 by Bdav100 (1 review written)

I own a rental property and on the 29th of October the tenant was discovered to have been running Cannabis factory. For safety reasons the electricity was cut off. UW have now decided that their estimated £7000 bill should be paid by me. I did not have a contract with UW the tenant did. They now require £2500 up front payment to reconnect and will not allow me to switch to another provider. They do not answer complaint phone calls or emails. I have left two emails for the CEO and a personal… Read Full Review

“Possibly the world's worst company!”

Written on: 11/11/2020 by CamberleyBob (1 review written)

An engineer came on 27 October to install phone and broadband but was unable to do so owing to an underground fault. Then engineers visited without warning on 28 October and 3 and 6 November, none of whom had the necessary equipment. Another engineer visited on 9 November, again without warning, and found the fault which he said would be repaired at a later date. After he left we found that he had disconnected the working Virgin line and I phoned UT to ask for it to be repaired which they… Read Full Review

“Exorbitant final bill”

Written on: 26/08/2020 by Billshockwoman (1 review written)

At first it seemed a good company but the electricity seemed to be getting very expensive so I switched. Nasty shock when I received final bill. Just told it corresponded with meter readings. I have said I will pay the bill in instalments but I have decided to make a complaint so they review the bill. Staff always polite and try to be helpful but maybe a computation mistake has been made?… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2020 by NickD1955 (1 review written)

Looking after my elderly in laws who have been mugged by this company for years. When you want to talk to them you cant get through or have to wait in a queue for between 15 and 30 minutes. Then when you get through they are un helpful. I have now cancelled everything with them and got it cheaper elsewhere. Just received my in laws final bill and there are Budget plan Reconciliation charges of £49.80. For what I don't know. Tried ringing them to ask why and told another 20minute wait to speak… Read Full Review

“No thanks or appreciation when leaving !”

Written on: 25/10/2019 by Happybob1 (1 review written)

I joined Utility Warehouse in June 2008, at the time of my retirement and have been a customer ever since. Initially, I was impressed with the service and agreed that they provide electricity, gas, broadband and home phone believing that, in so doing, my tariffs would remain relatively low.....particularly in comparison with the "Big Six" suppliers. I have always paid by monthly direct debit and have never missed a payment. During the following years, I was reasonably content and only really… Read Full Review
