Link-Estates is a property management & investment company for London residential and commercial property.
Social Housing forms part of our core business specialising in the provision of innovative housing solutions across London and the South East. We manage a vast number of properties so it was always challenging keeping tabs on the utilities, from suppliers down to rates and consumption levels. With the help of Utility Team, not only have we been able to streamline our utility portfolio under one umbrella, we have also managed to make significant savings. The energy market, in its current state, is very volatile and challenging, but with great assistance from our account manager, Julie Plunkett, we are confident that we are acquiring the best rates possible for our energy portfolio. Julie has been instrumental in helping us manage our portfolio, from negotiating rates and dealing with contracts to sites management and dealing with any queries/discrepancies that may arise along the way. Thank you Julie for your continued support, it is very much appreciated. We are pleased with the level of service provided and with the headway made up to now. We would highly recommend Utility Team for any business that is ready to make a significant saving on their energy bills.
Shoe Zone, Jonathon Fearne, Finance Director
We chose to award the contract to Utility Team as they offered competitive pricing and felt that their way of working was the closest to ours.
They were able to tailor their services to match what we wanted, and their expertise really shone through. It was also evident that the Utility Team colleagues that we met were the ones we would be dealing with on a daily basis which also made a big difference.
We are happy with the progress being made so far and we look forward to continuing to work with Utility Team going forward.
Spring Housing Association – Raj Shergill, Director of Housing and Corporate Services
We are a multi-site customer so managing our energy portfolio ourselves was time-consuming and challenging, especially as we have had a number of billing issues with our energy suppliers. We simply didn’t have the time or expertise to manage our accounts properly. We have found Utility Team to be knowledgeable, organised and easy to deal with.
Utility Team offered an end to end energy management solution from procurement, so we can be confident that we are paying the most competitive rates, right through bill validation and submitting meter reads.
We have a direct account manager who is always on hand to deal with any energy-related issues or queries and they will liaise with the suppliers on our behalf meaning we can concentrate solely on doing what we do best, running the business.
D & R Meats – Mike Warner, Operations Manager
An international wholesaler and retailer of high-end meat products, running one of the largest auction fleets in the country.
We have been working with the Utility Team for over 5 years and in that time we have found them to be both professional and helpful. They have gone the extra mile to ensure we get the best possible deals for our business. On the odd occasion where the fuel provider has caused problems, Sean McDonagh, in particular, has given us excellent customer service and resolved any issues quickly.
MDL Management – Diana Longden, Director
We have used Utility Team now for quite a few years. They provide us with recommendations when our utility contracts require renewing. I don’t have the time to do the research myself, so Utility Team takes all the stress and hassles away by sorting this”. The level of service and advice which we receive has always been second to none. I would highly recommend Utility Team to any business wishing to reduce their energy bills.
Tanning Co – Wayne Kinsella, Director
I opened my first sunbed shop in 2014 UT arranged for the electric meter to be upgraded to half hourly and since then every time I have an energy query Utility Team have been at the end of the phone. I now have a chain of sunbed shops and Utility Team have arranged group energy contracts and really helped me to understand how to save energy through good housekeeping and value-added services.
All Souls RC Primary School, Coventry
