Frequently Asked Questions
What does bill switching mean?
Bill switching, or utility switching, refers to the act of changing your service provider. BeforePay makes it easy for you to compare and switch your current service providers for electricity & gas, mobile, and internet, all in one place.
You may decide to switch providers for various reasons, such as dissatisfaction with your current service, moving house, or wanting to reduce your bills to save money.
Reviewing your service providers and switching to a more cost-effective alternative will ensure you’re not paying more than you need to, and can help you save in the long-run.
Why are utility bills rising?
The cost of utility bills are influenced by a number of domestic and international factors. Global pressures like political events and extreme weather affect the availability and supply of energy. The less supply available, the more it costs retailers to purchase and provide these services.
The end result is a higher bill in your mailbox.
What are the benefits of switching bills now?
Energy prices are set to continue rising*, along with inflation and the cost of living. Switching to more cost-effective service providers now will put you ahead of the game, helping you save on your bills to free up more dollars for your budget and other living expenses.
Switching now also means you can take advantage of limited-time discounts and offers from a range of providers.
