    Frustration
    It is nearly 4 months since I should have transferred to Eversmart but alas my gas supply has still not been transferred. After many phone calls, being held in telephone queues for long periods of times, failed promises that it will happen, no responses to emails, they apparently have not even requested to take on my supply from my previous supplier. As a result my large credit balance (with my previous supplier who in fact I have just been advised is my current supplier and wants my direct debit set up again) has been used up paying for gas at a much higher cost. Any advice on how I go forward as they have taken over my electric without any problems but have not been able to do the same for my gas. Where do I stand and if it is worth trying to move to another company.

    It's safe to say that the Eversmart website is really a waste of time. After several calls to give them feedback on this, I decided they aren't really interested. I do get the impression that their call centre staff are untrained, unprofessional and are combining the call answering with playing online games!


    I get monthly e mails to input my readings, but the website doesn't seem to save the data. Eversmart told me that all of the readings I entered are readable at their end, but I can't see the online record of my entries. There is no billing record, and no data showing payments made. To date I haven't been billed, so it will be interesting to see what happens when they try to produce one. I'd recommend to everyone to keep a separate log of dates, payments and meter readings.

    The estimate will have been made by an industry third-party based on the data that they hold for your property. You need to check that the gaining and losing suppliers are using the same reading to open and close your accounts.

    However my BG closing estimated read, and Eversmart opening read are different, so I have been double charged for 19 KWHrs.

    e-mail off to Eversmart - but something else for everyone to check.

    I was on a SVT with BG. 2 years ago my DD was £50/month but 9 months ago they plonked them up to £150 so took the advice of all the consumer champions and looked on several PCW. Eversmart was the only one that was any cheaper. So I switched. Bad idea. Significantly not cheaper, website is unhelpful and now I'm wondering what to do.

    Hi Halogen,

    Customer service is a bit patchy with Eversmart but regarding the price the only way to compare prices is the cost per day & Kwh. Due to credits or debits built up the monthly direct debit is so removed from the cost it is almost useless to compare.

    I don't know your figures, and the exact tariffs you are on. But in my area - for Electricity only.

    BG SVT is currently
    26.01p/day + 14.24p/Kwh

    Eversmart
    19.95p/day + 11.71p/Kwh

    I know I am comparing a SVT with a 12M fix, but if your rates are similar there is no way that Eversmart should be more expensive for your Electricity.

    I think that the monthly DD is also one of the reasons that the Smart Meter savings will never work as expected - Mr Average watches the display, tell his kids to turn off the lights, and his DD goes up with his new bill. He thinks - This Smart Meter thing is rubbish - puts it in the bin! And tells all his mates down the Pub that the Smart Meter is costing him more.

    well this was before the recent BG price rises. so the BG SVT rate would have been a little lower and I'm on a Varible tariff at Eversmart so that's a little higher. I also don't have a smart meter or any idea what sort of bill I should be expecting anymore.

    Edited to add- my current DD with Eversmart is about twice what an 'average cost' based on my situation should be and I can't find the KWhrs on the 1 bill I can view on the site.

    Update,
    I switched out from Eversmart on the 22nd December and they took a further payment on the 1st January. No problem really as I expected to owe them some money. I asked for the final bill on the 16th January and it was provided but without taking the payment on the 1st January into account. I pointed that out and received a reply stating that I would get an amended bill within 3 working days. That didn't happen and on the 24th January I cancelled the direct debit with my bank and emailed Eversmart to say so. That resulted in 3 emails from eversmart on the 2nd Feb. One telling me that the payment collection had failed, the second telling me that my direct debit had been cancelled by my bank and the third telling me that they(Eversmart) had cancelled my direct debit. I replied and pointed out that I had left them on the 22nd December and was still waiting for the final corrected bill, as promised on the 16th January. Eversmart responded with a copy of the December statement and not the final bill at all. I returned that and pointed out that I was still waiting for a final bill - it was promised within 2 days. 7 days later I am still waiting. I live in hope!!

    Eversmart are quick at switching you to there service but afterwards their service is dire. I switched last September and still cannot see billing or energy consumption information on their website. I have phoned and emailed several times without reply. Seriously thinking of switching.

    Not had a bill since the smart meter was installed, bit concerning really that they don't reply to emails either

    I had the problem with no bills and no replies. I called them and it turned out they had my email address wrong and the wrong bank details.
