Setting up your E.ON deal in Birmingham

Moving house is exciting, and is often a process that involves a long list of things to do. That’s why we want to tick one off your list. And that’s your energy supply. Our experts at Switch Plan can make sure that you start up ASAP on the best, cheapest tariff for your new household’s specific energy requirements. All we need you do is a few very simple tasks during the move over to Birmingham, and then we can sort out the rest.

  1. As you’re saying goodbye to your old home, take your final meter reading. Sad, we know. But we promise it’s important to make sure you aren’t overcharged for your energy bill. Jot it down and leave a note where the next residents of the house can find it. Their supplier might need it to know when to stop charging you for energy in the house.
  2. Walking into your new house in Birmingham, you should now locate the meter and write down the reading. You might not need it, but chances are your supplier could ask you for a meter reading when you first moved in, to know exactly how much the previous residents used. Now it’s time to move in to your new house in Birmingham!
  3. Wondering how you’ll start providing energy to your new house? Luckily, you’ll start up on the bill that the previous residents of the house were contracted on, before you switch over to a new one. You might want to stick on this plan if you find it suits you well, but chances are, you’ll feel the need to change suppliers and tariffs. If you can’t find the details of the last residency of the house, don’t worry! The Ogfem website can help you find out who supplies the energy to the property/

With Switch Plan, switching your energy provider is easier than it sounds, so don’t be put off! Just give us a ring on 0330 054 0018 and we will carry out a free price comparison service based on current tariffs on the market and your personal energy needs.
