Tell us about your role at Castle Water

As Team Leader for Onboarding, I am responsible for the onboarding of all new customers who have changed business water supplier to Castle Water, and existing customers that have signed a new contract with Castle Water. Whether it’s an online quote for SME customers, or bespoke contracts for tenders, I ensure all customers experience a smooth switch to Castle Water.

Why switch business water supplier?

Businesses switch water supplier for better prices and service. Castle Water offer very competitive prices, and as the UK’s leading independent retailer we can fight for fair rates for our customers. Right now, we are offering our ‘Best Deal Yet’* which has proved to be very popular with businesses that want to change water supplier, and with our eligible existing customers.

At Castle Water, we pride ourselves on our 5-star customer service. We have more 5-star Trustpilot reviews than all other water retailers combined. Our Sales and Onboarding teams are here to provide support to customers switching to Castle Water to ensure a smooth transfer and answer any questions that they have.

How easy is it to get a quote from Castle Water?

Very easy! All you need to do is visit our website, click ‘Get and Instant Quote’ (the green button at the top of the homepage), pop in your postcode and select your business address, then it takes just a few minutes to complete the remaining steps on the online quote tool. When you receive your quote and you are happy to accept, the quote process is completed online via Doc-U-sign, that once signed is received by our Onboarding team.

How easy is the switch process to Castle Water?

It’s easy to switch business water to Castle Water. The switch process itself takes 2 weeks. You are kept up-to-date on the status of your switch throughout this time. We will arrange for a Meter Reader to attend your site/sites to obtain a meter reading, (for metered customers only). This reading will be used as your ‘closing’ reading for your previous retailer, and your ‘opening’ reading for your first Castle Water bill.

On your transfer date, your new Castle Water account will be created, your account number and details will be confirmed by our dedicated Onboarding team, and you’ll get access to your customer portal, MyAccount.

Does switching water supplier cause any disruption to a business?

Switching water supplier should not cause any disruption to your business. Our Onboarding team work hard to ensure the transfer process is as smooth and simple as possible.
