I have just received my final bill from Bulb
I provided as requested my new supplier with start readings on July 1st. I also entered those readings on my Bulb account on that date, though my actual start date appears to be July 3rd.
Today only 19 days later, not the 6+ weeks I expected, Bulb have sent my final bill - great service I think - but no they have provided a final gas bill with an estimated final reading!
They have used the supplied electricity reading as my final reading but have decided to add 10m3 of gas to my final gas bill as an “estimate”, why!
I am not a newby at switching suppliers, this switch is number 8 or 9 in about 13 years but I have never had an estimated final bill, start/finish readings have always been provided.
I have waited for 6+ weeks for final bills and if queried was always told that he delay was due to third party verification.
I will be very surprised if my new supplier adds 10m3 to my supplied reading before starting to charge me for gas.
Notwithstanding the fact of an estimated final bill, the estimate of 5m3 per day in July is laughable. I may use 5m3/day in late March not in July.
