Business energy for larger companies - how to choose a broker

Make It Cheaper's bespoke business energy procurement service for major UK businesses.

Make It Cheaper understands that for businesses, time is money, which is why we take the hassle out of switching by making it easy for you to get a better deal for your gas and electricity.

We also appreciate the importance of choosing someone you can trust to take care of your contracts. To make your choice easier, we've compiled a list of some of the key questions you should ask when looking for a broker – and why you can be sure we'll provide the advice, service and expertise necessary to get a deal that's right for your business.

Are they qualified to deliver the service you need?

Our major business advisors are at the top of their game. The team has many years of experience, and a proven track record of meeting the needs of businesses in a wide range of industries.

We understand the need to work with suppliers on more than just price, meaning we'll also focus on service and reliability when finding a deal that's right for your business.

Are they in it for the long haul?

The major business team prides itself on the relationships we've built with our customers. For us it's all about long-lasting relationships that go well beyond sales, so you'll have a dedicated account manager on hand to address any issues you might have throughout the duration of your contract.

We've set our sights on retaining customers, and with eight years’ experience under our belts we're always improving our offerings to keep businesses coming back again and again.

What exactly are they selling?

We work with suppliers to build you a bespoke offering based on your energy needs. In your initial conversations with a major business adviser, we'll get an understanding of your energy usage and requirements in order to find a solution that best fits your business model.

No matter how complex your needs, we'll explore every area of your business's usage expectations to ensure we're only searching for the best deals for you.  

How do they charge?

We're always honest and upfront about our service, with all our commission taken from suppliers. It's then up to your supplier to factor this into your bills.

Major business will always be happy to let you know the value of our commission at any point during a deal, as we believe passionately in transparency and trust.

How good is their market access?

Major business has constant interaction with suppliers to ensure we are one step ahead when it comes to industry changes and pricing information. We have our own account managers liaising with suppliers, and we work together with your business in mind. This means we know the service will be consistent, and we're able to fight your corner if you ever feel your supplier isn't giving you the level of service you expect.

It's worth noting that credit availability is sometimes a barrier and it may be that your credit rating limits how many suppliers quote for your business – but we know which suppliers are best depending on your business situation, so we'll always find the best deal we can.

How many suppliers do they place business with?

We know that large businesses need a bespoke service, so we work with more than fifteen suppliers to make sure we find exactly what's right for your business.

We only use providers we can trust to give our customers great value deals, so you won't pay over the odds for your gas or electricity when you use Make It Cheaper.

How will they help you make an informed decision?

All the advice we provide is intended to help you get the best deal we possibly can. It might be that you're looking for pure budget certainty – or that you have more of an appetite for risk. Whichever it is, we'll find a range of offers and whittle them down to show you only the ones that meet all of your criteria. We present our quotes in a clear, honest and upfront manner. Just like with our commission structure, we will clearly discuss every aspect of your quote to make sure that you are making an informed choice.
