Once you’ve found your ideal gas package, the switching process is simple and safe.
First, the supplier will ask you to fill out another short form. After this, your new gas provider will arrange a switching date, and ask for a meter reading to make sure they can work out your bill correctly, they’ll also contact your current supplier to let them know you’re switching.
There is then a two-week ‘cooling off’ period, during which you can change your mind and stop the gas provider switch process.
Don’t worry, a gas switch doesn’t require any building, plumbing or re-wiring. You won’t notice any change, except the price on your gas bill, and you certainly won’t be cut off during the switch.
All in all, for many of the big suppliers, switching gas supplier will take no more than 17 days. However for the smaller ones it can take around 6 weeks.
