There are lots of different reasons that business owners choose to use a business energy broker. This is because there are so many ways that using a business energy broker can benefit your business. In this blog post we have put together just three of the reasons you should use a business energy broker.
- Save Money
The first and potentially most important reason that you should use a business energy broker is because it will help you save money. The main reason that businesses switch energy brokers is to save money and this is exactly what a business energy broker helps you do.
Research shows that businesses in the UK are losing around £1.4 million everyday on expensive business energy contracts, for energy they are not using. Many of these contracts are unnecessarily priced, based on the size and needs of the business.
A business energy broker works closely with a business and has strong relationships with a wide range of energy providers. This enables the business energy broker to consistently monitor the business energy market on your behalf. In turn they will save you as much money on your business energy.
- Avoids Contract Rollovers
Another reason that you should be using a business energy broker is to help you avoid the business energy contract rollover. If you don’t get around to cancelling or renegotiating your current business energy deal before it expires, you may find the energy company rollover your contract. In many cases, this can mean you will end up paying more for your energy.
The terms of the business energy contract will often prevent you from switching to a better deal, even if it is with your current business energy supplier. Your current supplier will class this as a breach of contract if you attempt to do it after your contract has rolled over and a new contract has begun.
A business energy broker is worth their weight in gold at times like this. They can contact you before your contract is due to end and shop around for the best deal for you. Your business energy broker will even handle the change over to a new supplier for you.
- Saves Time
When it comes to running your own business, time is money. It takes time to search around for the best business energy suppliers. Very often, your spare time is already limited, and you end up just picking any business energy supplier to get the job done. It’s hard to find the time to get separate business gas and electricity quotes, let alone compare them.
Once again, this is where a business energy broker can help. They can look at your existing gas and electricity bills. Your business energy broker will be able to see how much energy you use and what you are currently paying for it. They can then shop around to get you a better deal.
Then, when they have found a better deal for your business energy that saves you money, they will come back to you. They’ll tell you the terms and conditions, how much you’ll have to pay and how much you’ll save. All you’ll need to do is sign on the line. Your business energy broken can do the rest for you.
