Switching Electricity Suppliers when you have two meter rates

On three occasions I've tried to switch my electricity supplier from EDF (when previously SWEB), and have failed each time when my 'new' supplier could not accommodate my existing arrangement of a 'normal rate' meter for my basic electricity, and a 'low-rate' (overnight) meter for my storage heaters. Surely this cannot be a problem in this day and age. Anyone else had/solved this problem? Any suggestions please?

    The problem you may be having may relate to the hours you heating operates for all will offer a 7 hour night but if you have something like 11 hours or 8+2 then they may only be able to offer you a standard 24/7 tariff which may not be viable if you have electric central heating.
