Does British Gas need to know I'm moving home?

British Gas needs to be updated when you’re moving home. This is, apart from anything else, to make sure you settle your bill and don’t overpay. There could also be an outstanding balance and it’s certainly in your interest to make sure that’s paid. You also want to avoid any personal correspondence going to your previous address. And that’s why so many people will research ‘moving house with British Gas’.

How good is British Gas?

As we know, British Gas sits atop the ‘The Big 6‘ – the 6 largest energy companies in the UK. It’s fairly unknown but British Gas gets a bad reputation – just for being large. As a company they do support a significant amount of charity work and is the oldest company in the industry. 

Where British Gas faces criticism is on its pricing. Whilst it tries to be competitive, British Gas never proclaims to be the cheapest or lowest cost. Often these tariff come with  price surges after sign-off. British Gas tries to compete on customer experience and its breadth of offerings. That said, it isn’t the cheapest supplier and if you are price sensitive you will almost certainly find a better value supplier elsewhere.
