SwitchWaterSupplier.com Advises, Wait to Switch, Audit Now!

With the lockdown in place, the water market may be going in to a period of hibernation with the wholesalers and retailers focusing their limited resource on essential activities only.  So, right now is the time to prepare for the market re-opening and to look for refunds due to your business!

Our message is simple right now.  As businesses look to conservatism and clear strategic thinking to get them through this crisis period, whilst the idea of seeking to switch water supplier might seem desirable to reduce onward operating costs, the time is not right to embark on this activity right now.  in fact the water market looks like it could be going in to hibernation and the retailers may not be accepting new and unproven liability by taking on new customers at this time.

Moreover, applications made for billing data corrections or refunds are also likely to go unheard as the water wholesalers and retailers focus their limited resources on only essential operations.  However, right now, there’s a very sensible opportunity to prepare to both reduce onward costs, and to establish whether your business is due what will no doubt be a much needed cash injection.

During this period of lockdown, have SwitchWaterSupplier.com carry out a desktop water audit, free of charge, and we may well uncover billing errors or other reasons to think that your business is due a refund on historical overcharging by you current or previous water supplier.  If so, there might also be an associated opportunity to apply for billing data corrections to amend and reduce your future water bills, further helping your business exit the storm we’re only just heading in to.

In order to remain healthy going forwards, businesses must place cost-reduction opportunities at the heart of their continuity plans and SwitchWaterSupplier.com can offer a valuable service in any effort to realise practical, short-term and long-term financial benefits.

In light of the unprecedented challenges facing every business in the months ahead, SwitchWaterSupplier.com strongly recommends that brokers and TPIs acting on behalf of their customers, and the water retailers themselves, should talk to us about auditing customer water bills as a way to not only provide a valuable service that can offer genuine benefit to businesses once the market re-awakens, but provide an additional revenue stream, when normal trading operations may be suffering.  Call 03300 552532 now, or email hello@switchwatersupplier.com.
