Can anything delay my transfer?

Your current supplier could raise an objection to the transfer of your supply which could cause a delay. Typically, we will receive objections if you haven’t terminated your contract with your current supplier or paid off all outstanding debt. If this happens your current supplier should notify you. Occasionally, we also experience industry registration rejections. If this happens we will contact you to advise you on the next steps.

What do I need to do if my current supplier objects to the transfer?

You will need to contact your current supplier to discuss the reason for the objection. If you are able to resolve the matter you will need to let us know so that we can attempt to transfer your supply again. You can keep us updated by emailing or call us on 0330 400 4444.

What do I do if I am unable to resolve the objection placed by my current supplier?

Get in touch with us and we will help if we can. If you have an energy broker they may be able to help you with this also. Email or call us on 0330 400 4444.
