Has anyone got any experience with Utility Warehouse?

Options
We have been offered a better energy deal with Utility Warehouse but we are nervous as not many people know much about this company.

Are they any good?

thanks.

    They’re a horses for courses sort of company. To get their best gas & electricity unit rates you used to have to take 3 services from them in total e.g. G&E + Mobile Phone SIM + Broadband/Phone. I don’t know how that’s working with them now that there’s the Energy Price Guarantee. The additional services cost could mean that the attractive-looking utilities rates actually weren’t a great deal for some, okay for others.
    I left them years ago, wasn’t a fan of the uncomfortable cat’s cradle of deals you used to be bound into. They’re a long established utilities supplier, there are numerous threads on here with different views of them.

    Personally I wouldn't touch them again with somebody elses extremely long barge pole... as a rule the only people who have anything particularly positive to say about them are those who will benefit from trying to convince others to become customers.

    Well, I used to work for a landlord several years ago and I hated phoning the "big 6" as the queues were soul-destroying, phoning Utility Warehouse I used to get through quickly and they did what they said they would. Personally i'd use them if their rates were better than others.
  • Stay away, i was with them in the past and they are truly awful!
