The Property Redress Scheme (PRS) is always looking for new ways we can make life better or simpler for our Members.

 

We are often contacted by organisations who would like to provide services to our Members. Using a careful vetting process we are going to give exposure to organisations that we think you might find useful. This could involve saving you money or helping you maintain a competitive edge.

 

The first company under the spotlight is Make it Cheaper.

 

Make it Cheaper work with small to medium size businesses to help them switch and save on electricity, gas, merchant services and telecoms.  They take the hassle out of shopping around for the best rates and compare more suppliers than anyone else on the market. This is a common process undertaken by individuals but not so much by companies.

 

Their money-saving experts have in depth knowledge of the market and up to date information.  They work with a variety of vetted partners across a range of industries to ensure you get the best deal including Money Supermarket, Go Compare and Money Saving Expert.

 

So far, Make it Cheaper have helped over 250,000 businesses save more than £500 million on their bills.  Their mission is to hit the £1 billion saving mark by 2018.

 

So what services can Make it Cheaper help you switch?

  • Energy – they can complete an energy switch on the phone in less than 15 minutes if you have all your paperwork to hand. They make sure that you don’t automatically roll-over onto an inflated rate when your fixed-term contract renewal window closes. They compare not only the cheapest prices but also the right rates tailored to the customer’s needs; ensuring that the new deal suits your current consumption.

 

  • Merchant Services – they don’t charge a set-up fee which can save you £150. They typically reduce business merchant service costs by 35% and help their customers navigate a market which is generally difficult to understand.

 

  • Telecoms – they typically save customers between 30%-40% on their telecoms bills. They switch over 1000 lines a month and have exclusive packages just for business customers.

 

Make it Cheaper are a UK based company and handle everything in-house which means no outsourcing and they won’t pass customers on to other brokers. 99% of customers say that Make it Cheaper have made it easier for them to switch their contracts. 

 

The PRS has entered into an introductory scheme with Make it Cheaper so that the PRS directly benefits if any of our Members decide to use their switching service. The benefit this provides to our Members is helping to keep our membership fees low and allowing us to continue to develop our systems and processes.
