It takes courage to run a business, but many bosses shy away from optimising their energy costs. These expenses can be punishing burdens for a growing business, and it is a mistake to simply sweep the issue under the carpet. There is no reason to be overcharged for your energy, and there is much to be gained from switching. Here are some of the common misconceptions that act as barriers to making a change:

“My contract isn’t up for renewal.”

This doesn’t mean you can’t have a new contract prepared to launch immediately after the current one ends. By agreeing a price upfront, businesses can forecast their future energy costs more accurately, helping you comprehensively prepare for growth.

“It’s stressful and time consuming.”

The energy market can be complicated, but companies like Utility Bidder are here to help simplify the process. With help, you can get deeper into every detail and find tailored solutions that are the perfect fit for your business. And with a third party intermediary doing the hard work, you can focus on running your business.

“I can’t afford to have my supply interrupted.”

Making a switch will not interrupt your supply. The same infrastructure is used to supply your energy, regardless of the supplier, so there is no need for downtime. And if a contract is arranged in advance, it will instantly switch over and you won’t notice a transition at all.

“All the major energy suppliers are roughly the same.”

This attitude overlooks a large section of the market. There are many energy suppliers beyond the ‘Big Six’, many of whom offer cheaper contracts and more favourable terms. Utility Bidder can find business energy suppliers that will secure you better prices and superior service every time.

“Exit charges are too high.”

Leaving a contract early can result in exit charges. With expert support, you can get through this process to ensure the benefits of the switch outweigh any charges you incur. A good third party intermediary will find you a better price and give you peace of mind.
