Switching to Octopus Energy in South Scotland

Switching energy suppliers may seem like a big deal, but in reality it's so easy. Switch Plan have made it quicker and simpler than ever. You just need to make sure that you follow a few simple instructions to get started with your new energy plan in Strathclyde.

Switching energy suppliers when moving house is a slightly different process to if you are switching in the same property. It simply requires you to take a few more steps. Firstly, let your energy supplier know that you are moving house, and make sure that you do this at least 48 hours in advance of the move. If you don't know who supplies your current property with gas and electricity, then head over to the Ofgem website and they will provide all the answers. Or, you can check out a recent energy bill, either an online or paper version.

Take energy meters in both your old and new properties. Having photographic or written evidence of your exact consumption as you leave one property and enter the next will allow you to dispute any possible errors on your energy bills. You should make sure to do this whether you are moving into a new property, or if you are in a rented property.

Start researching what energy plan you want to switch to before moving day. Remember, you can't switch to a new supplier before the day you officially move in to your new property, so knowing exactly what plan you want to switch to will make the whole process much quicker and smoother. The default tariff that you will automatically be put on in your new property will be more expensive than one that you want to switch to, so try to switch as soon as possible after you move in.
