Before you start to read my very truthful and painful review on Scottish Power, I would you like to bear in mind that this opinon contains numerous tips on how not to get caught out like I did, if you fully read this review, then there is no excuse for you to be as stupid as I was!When we first moved in to the house we are in, Scottish Power ( I will call SP) were already the supplier of our electricity, rather than go through the hassle of pricing up and changing suppliers we just kept it as SP.
Our SP bills arrived and we payed them as they came in, we were paying quartley, and when the bills arrived I would write out a cheque and post it. That was that. I never thought twice about it, it was all so easy.
(2nd mistake) Always check your readings against the reading on your meter, as most bills are estimated, and there can be a vast difference, which can result in saving you a few hard earned pennies, this point I found out too late to my cost.
After a few weeks I started clearing out the junk drawer in the kitchen, and found the offending bill, still though at this time we ddi not have funds to cover it, so I rang up SP and spoke to a very nice lady who explained to me that I need'nt worry and all the time I stayed in touch with them things would be ok ( she was on my christmas card list!).
After talking with my husband regarding our spiral in to debt, we worked out a bugdet that if we stuck to would mean that we could see a light at the end of the tunnel with our money situation.
Part of that budget was sorting out all our payments so that they would go out on time, to try save the noose tightening around our necks.
