Don’t miss out – tap into the new water market

By 20 March 2017 May 25th, 2017 Industry News, Our News

It’s estimated that up to 1.2 million businesses and organisations in England could take advantage of the deregulation of the water market – and that it will deliver around £200 million of benefits to the UK economy.

Being able to choose which company supplies your water services, rather than having to buy from your regional provider, could help you save water, spend less and enjoy more benefits.

But with just days to go until the marketplace opens up on April 1, the water is looking more cloudy than clear, with more of a drip than a flow of information on important matters such as the process of switching suppliers, pricing, credit and so on.

The downside of this is that faced with all the intricacies of a new marketplace, eligible customers will do nothing – and the danger of that is that they will end up being put on the highest tariff by their default provider.

Doing nothing shouldn’t be an option.  Instead, the best course of action is to speak to an expert consultant.  Our experience at Utility Team of working in other deregulated markets such as electricity, gas and telecoms means we are well placed to navigate you through the minefield to find the deal that’s right for you.

And it’s not just about the price that you pay – it’s about the overall package including ways of billing and meter reading.  The real gains are likely to be enjoyed by those with multiple sites across the country who will benefit from the efficiencies associated with having just one supplier.

With 16 water suppliers already registered and more to follow, it would be nigh on impossible for anyone without in-depth industry knowledge to make the right assessment.  To help you find the best retailer for your needs, call us on 024 7699 7901 or contact
