How do I sign a Scottish Power contract in Richmond upon Thames, London?
Have you just moved to Richmond upon Thames? Lucky you! Whether you are recent Londoner or have lived in the area for a while now, you are now one of the 86634 inhabitants of Richmond upon Thames, and you'll want to start fuelling up your home as soon as possible. That's where we come in. All we need from you is a few simple pieces of information before we can carry out your energy switch.
- Firstly, inform your supplier that you are moving house. This can be on their website, but it might be easiest to ring them up and chat to one of their advisers. If you don't know who supplies you with energy, check a recent energy bill, either online or through the post. Alternatively, head over to our home made article that will teach you how to find your supplier.
- Taking meter readings in both your old and new properties is very important to ensure that you aren't overcharged. If you don't note down how much you used, your supplier won't know when you stopped using energy in your previous residence, and when you started in your new place. If you are in a rented property, your landlord might take charge of this, but depending on who is in charge of your energy bills - as should be outlined on your tenancy agreement - you might be expected to send proof of your readings to your landlord.
- Our experts at Switch Plan know that your energy supply is very personal to you. That's why, in a quick 10 minute phone call, they will evaluate your energy needs and find you a plan that best sutis you and your household. If you haven't sorted out your energy supply before moving, then you will be automatically put on a default contract, which tend to be expensive. That's why switching is so important.
