Even though the lights might be working when you move in, you may have no idea who your provider is, what tariff you’re on or how much you’ll be expected to pay.
Changes to the energy market in the UK mean there is more choice now than ever before, and you can take control of your energy bills with Please Connect Me.
We do the research to make sure you get a great deal at your new home and will help you submit actual meter readings so you don’t pay for anyone else’s energy but your own.
Did you know?
Switching your Gas and Electricity tariff is one of the most important things to do when moving to a new property. The average UK household can usually save approximately £200 to £400 over a 12 month period – so switching is crucial if you don’t want to be overpaying by staying on a standard variable rate tariff.
Another advantage of switching to a fixed rate tariff is that the unit rates will remain fixed until the contract end date. Historical data shows that energy prices tend fluctuate and inevitably increase, so even if you are set on a good standard variable rate tariff – it’s still fairly certain you’ll be looking at price rises in the near future.

About fibre broadband
Fibre-optic broadband is a high-speed internet connection. It takes it names from the fibre-optic cables which are used to transmit data. These are made from either glass or plastic, which enable signals to travel much faster than traditional copper cables.
Fibre-optic broadband is becoming more and more widely available, but unfortunately not every home in the UK has access to it just yet.
We can figure out whether your house can get fibre broadband and our specialist team will do all the research to find the best deal available to you.
Changes to the online landscape means there are now more paid television options than ever before.

Connecting with Please Connect Me takes most of the stress out of your decision-making process. We will present the best choices we have available to you based on your needs and circumstances, to make sure you get the entertainment that you can’t live without!
How much is a TV licence?
Currently, a TV Licence costs £159 annually. This can be paid all at once, or broken down into quarterly or monthly instalments. Payment methods include direct debit, bank transfer, or with debit/credit cards either online or at one of 28,000 pay points across the UK.
In some cases you can also apply to make weekly payments with TV License payment card. This spreads the cost of your license from £6 per week over a 26 week period. For more information on paying for your TV license, click here.
Registration with your local authority is compulsory, and depending on your situation you could be exempt from making payments or be eligible for a discounted rate.
The registration process and amount due varies greatly from region to region, and you can quite easily end up on hold for hours attempting to get through to the right department.
Don’t be caught out of pocket; let Please Connect Me handle this complicated and confusing process for you as part of your move.
Paying too much for council tax?
Did you know that there are an estimated 400,000 households who overpay for their council tax? That’s right, you may be eligible for a rebate. This is because your house may have been placed in an incorrect band when it was registered.
Speak to our connection experts today and see if you are eligible for a discount.
Water is often the forgotten utility.
England and Wales have different water supply regulations to Scotland, so it can be difficult to know where to start when getting registered, and the process of billing and payments can prove to be a bit of a headache.
We will explain the situation in your area, and make sure to correctly register you with your local supplier.
Must be something in the water..
If you have any trouble with your UK water supply, contact the local authority that supplies your water. You will find the number on bills, welcome letters and company websites.
Please Connect Me also offers help in registering customers to the water company that operates in their particular area completely free of charge.

As well as the services outlined above, we can also help with House Cleaning and Foreign Exchange.
