We’re delighted to confirm our turnover has exceeded £1 million per year! The growth we are experiencing continues (and is accelerating) quarter by quarter. Enquiry numbers, orders, profit and turnover are all sharply increasing. Our workforce also continues to expand rapidly to keep up with customer demand – this is important if we are to keep customer service at the heart of everything we do whilst being friendly and helpful. In the last year alone, we have seen staff numbers double and we expect this to increase further in the coming months.
Quarter 3 of 2014 and September 2014 have been our most successful quarter and month yet. September 2014 profit was 221% higher than September 2013 and quarter 3 profit was 237% higher than the previous year. Turnover has increased more than 300% over the previous year too.
Your gas meter supplier will depend on whether you need the meter for your domestic or business premises. However, the majority of the UK’s gas is delivered by National Grid, Northern Gas Networks, Scotland Gas Networks, Southern Gas Networks or Wales & West Utilities. Read on to find out who your supplier is and how to upgrade or remove your meter.
The Big Six energy companies have had a tough time of late. Npower has lost 62,000 customers this year, EDF has been ordered to pay £3 million after mishandling complaints, and British Gas has been blamed for pretty much anything and everything. We at 1Gas wanted to understand why a lot of the population aren’t happy with the Big Six, so that we can make sure we do the exact opposite! Here’s what we managed to find out…
Yesterday we achieved the milestone of 150 reviews on Europe’s biggest review portal, Trustpilot. In one year alone we invited 560 customers, whose orders we have completed, to rate our service. In total 26.96% of customers responded. We’re rated 4.7 out of 5 / 9.0 out of 10. We look forward to vastly increasing the number of reviews in the coming year.
Today, we’ve launched our brand new website. We hope you like it. It has a number of new features we feel will distance us even more from our competitors. These include a stunning new design, a customised quote form for every customer’s individual requirements, the ability to start completing a quote request on every page without a single click, optimised layouts for mobile and tablet devices, ability to pay online with a credit or debit card, live chat, greater prominence of our 140+ Trustpilot reviews (no one comes close in the gas connections industry). Now we are going to turn a £1m turnover business into a multimillion pound business!
