Notice

Want to set up a British Gas contract in Oxford?

Welcome to your new home in lovely Oxfordshire! You may have moved from the neighbouring street or from a far away town but you are now part of the 170,839 inhabitants of Oxford, the biggest city of your Oxfordshire and 43rd of the country. Local statistics state that you probably share this new home with 2.70 friends, flatmates or family members so you’ll need to quickly power up your new home.

  1. First things first, as you leave your previous living quarters, take a meter reading just before you go through the door and note it somewhere safe. Your previous supplier may ask you to provide this and it will ensure your not paying for the energy of the new tenants.
  2. Now that you dropped your bags in Oxford you should do the same thing. Identify the meter in your home and write down the meter reading of your new address.
  3. It’s quiet likely you will inherit a ‘deemed’ contract, which you will stay on until you switch. The previous resident of the house usually leaves details concerning their energy supplier but if they didn’t, don’t panic. The Ofgem website can help you find out who supplies the gas and electricity to this new home.

Switching energy suppliers sounds scary but with Switch Plan it really is a piece of cake. Pick up your phone and call us on 0300 054 0018. We’ll assess based on your consumption, budget and consuming habit which plan is best for you.
