As we all know electricity prices have risen dramatically.
I just recieved a call from an "Electricity broker" who advised me he can save me 15% on my current bills for both home and business.
This sounded very good, and of course he wanted to close the deal straight away.
However, I demurred, as I NEVER do phone deals..I ALWAYS insist on me ringing them back later.
Upon questioning, there doesnt seem to be any reason not to proceed...he stated that they are brokers employed by the retailers to harvest customers.
I have heard reports in the media about this practice, with mainly good, but also some bad press.
My current provider is Origin..he said they charge X and dont discount...my new provider would be AGL, and they would give me 15% on Origins "regulated rate"
No sneaky penalty fees OR ability of provider to alter without permission your deal. You do have to sign a 2 year contract, with 10 day cooling off period.
I guess the obvious next step would be to ring my 2 seperate providers and urge them to match...but then again, why should I...this sounds easier?
Anyone else done/considered this? (lots of you will get a call!)
the brokers name in this case was makeitcheaper dot com (no connection to me hence typed, not linked, web address)
I told the guy to email me in a few days when i had done some research.
All comments or suggestions welcome...normally I am averse to changing providers, as salesman invariably promise heaven and earth, not always the case.
