Series 5, Episode 6
Hosted: 03/11/2021 12:00:00 am
Our eventful Expert Lock-In series returned this week and it was a well-timed event. Energy bills are skyrocketing right now, and they seem to be further price rises just around the corner.
We knew we had to do something to help our members, but we couldn’t figure out how.
And then John Devine from TCD Energy popped up in everyone’s moment of need.
We got speaking on a zoom call and everything he said made perfect sense. So, we thought let’s put him to the test and host TCD Energy on our webinar series, luckily for us he gladly accepted.
We kicked off with everything about TCD energy and what sets them apart from the other energy companies.
Consultancy vs Brokerage
Talking about energy providers is always a mixed bag, some people relish the challenge of dealing with them and some turn, run, and hide at the thought of tackling the issue.
The good news is TCD Energy isn’t your usual energy company; TCD is all about relationship building, They want to hold your hand through the whole contract and not just from the lead to the commission cheque.
Their ethos is providing good support and customer service will lead to business when you’re ready to do so.
With over 20 years of experience between them, TCD Energy is setup with extensive knowledge and connections of the energy suppliers, all with the aim of getting you the best prices possible.
All leading back to the goal of keeping you happy and building an established relationship for the future.
In a Nutshell…
When John dived into what TCD do, was surprising how much happens behind the scenes and extras John has up his sleeves. He broke it down into the main categories of:
- Energy contract reviews
- Metering and connections
- Billings, monitoring & account management
- Single point of contact
Of course, the most important aspect of energy supply is getting the best pricing, something strikes a chord with all LNPG members.
How it happens is the impressive part, TCD Energy have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the energy market with their live pricing, literally, they see all the prices of current energy deals and what’s going to happen next.
They can even tell if rates are going to be pulled if they’re causing a loss for the supplier.
This is all down to the relationships and connections they’ve built with the energy suppliers.
Once you find the perfect tariff and get all onboarded, the support carries on with their account management and monitoring services, making sure you’re paying the right amount including making sure you’re on the right VAT level.
TCD Energy turn your spider web of energy into a single point of contact, freeing you up to do what’s important.
How Easy Is It All?
The last thing landlords need is to spend hours on hours trawling through the internet or phoning up energy companies being stuck in queue trying to get a better price.
So is not great that you can phone TCD and get the ball rolling, and all it takes is 30 seconds of your previous time.
You need to sign a letter of authority to enable them to speak with your current supplier and potential new suppliers, but this is a simple signature and takes no more than a few minutes to send over via email.
The real magic is then produced, a comprehensive detailed report of the best deal for you.
They talk it through and give you the benefits of each deal and if you’re not going to make a saving they’ll tell you so- giving you the peace of mind that you were an energy expert all along.
It’s a no-obligation situation, where you can put your feelers out and get the bigger picture for free.
The best part of having an extra pair of hands isn’t just the reduced workload, but the additional knowledge and insight they bring to the table.
And this is certainly true for TCD Energy.
They have the experience of switching energy contracts for hundreds of customers and are accustomed to all the tricks in the book that your incumbent energy supplier would try to pull if you approached them as an individual.
Luckily as energy consultants, they know all the jargon and what’s right or wrong in the industry.
So, they can fast track around all the nonsense and tricks to get you on a better deal as soon as possible.
What’s Around the Corner
Wouldn’t it be great if we could have an LNPG tariff for all members? Wouldn’t it be great if we had a dedicated support line for all our members’ energy needs and queries?
Wouldn’t it be great if all this help was done on a no-fee basis? Two of these are confirmed, can you guess which one isn’t?
It’s the LNPG tariff, it was floated as an idea by John Devine; to give you all the same buying power you’re used to, but with your energy supply.
Instead of heading to E.ON or British Gas as a landlord with three properties, you could join a plan which has been negotiated with the buying power of over 5265 landlords.
That’s all for this webinar episode, you can expect to hear more from TCD Energy soon, but if you’re in a hurry and need to get your energy supply organised now they will be able to treat you as if we’re partnered already.
