What Do I Need?

Your BillAt The Switching Helpline we make it simpler than ever to get an energy comparison. There are just a few bits of basic information you will need to have to hand

You’ll need to have the following bits of information to hand when you contact us:

  • your full postcode
  • knowledge of who your current supplier tariff
Unsure about your gas supplier?

If you are unsure of your current gas supplier you can call the Transco Meter helpline on 0870 608 1524.

Unsure about your electricity supplier?

If you are unsure of your current electricity supplier you can call your local electricity distribution company. You can see a list of their contact numbers by clicking here.

Do I need my bill?

Having your latest bill will allow you to give us the most accurate information about your energy usage, but don’t worry if you don’t have one handy – we can work out your usage by asking you a few extra questions about your home.

Is that all I need?

Yes, that’s all we’ll need to show you a comparison. We’ll show you all the options for your chosen payment method, and if you would prefer to pay by Monthly Direct Debit, you will need your bank details to send to your new supplier. We pass these via a secure server, and under no circumstance will The Switching Helpline store or use these ourselves.

And that’s it, it really is that simple.
