HHRFC recommends using Utility Bidder to search the Utility Market
“Now I found Utility Bidder we will be working with them when renewal comes around again – in fact we have also asked them to look at our water rates to see if they can find any savings there.
“I would recommend any sports club or charity to speak to Utility Bidder to see whether they can help them save time and money on their costly utilities.”
Running a sports club is expensive
Dave Grimley is Treasurer and he, along with other Committee members, is a volunteer. “We are really passionate about the work we do here,” he said. “We are proud of the fact that HHRFC has over 450 children playing at the Club each weekend – the highest number of any club in Sussex and it’s a vital part of our local community.”
However, running a successful rugby club is expensive – it costs just under £300Kpa simply to keep it running. Dave adds: “We rely on membership fees, social events and shop sales and as Treasurer it’s my job to ensure that we account for every penny to ensure it is well spent.”
Dave understands the importance of changing utility providers on an annual basis rather than simply renewing the contract with the same provider. “Energy providers rely on businesses to go for the easy option and simply roll over their contract when it comes to an end,” he said. “However, this can be really expensive and so I always make sure we search the market every year to find the best price.”
Dave admits this is a time-consuming job – it takes up a lot of his time, which as a volunteer could be spent doing more important jobs for the Club. “Even when I have used an online search engine, I find it really frustrating that at the end of it all, I still have to contact providers to get the full details.”
His existing utility provider told Dave the cost for the Club’s gas and electricity would go from its current £3,340.00 pa to £5,245.00 pa. “I appreciate that energy prices are rising across the board, but nevertheless this seemed like quite a hike. I wasn’t looking forward to the usual trawl on comparison sites and so this time I decided to outsource the hard work and asked Utility Bidder to search the market on my behalf.”
“These monies will be ploughed back into the Club at a grass roots level to help support the numerous teams who play here.
“If you ask anyone who works in finance they will tell you they want solutions that are fast, easy and accurate and I can’t speak highly enough of my Utility Bidder account manager. Renewing our gas and electricity was usually a painful and time-consuming process but this time I just had to send over a few bills, sign a letter of authority and sit back and relax. It really couldn’t have been simpler and to find such a huge saving was the icing on the cake.”
