we read the smallprint


Some of the weasel words to watch out for in contracts include:
  • automatic rollover - if you forget to stop the contact it carries on for another year - or longer!
  • hard to hit notice clauses - your chance to give notice to end the contract must be given within a highly proscribed timetable - or you're stuck with the supplier again. And the price has probably gone up.
  • price rises - you can get stung for price rises during the contract and yet be stuck with the supplier
  • unexpected contract changes - you get new contract terms foisted upon you, perhaps because of some 'change' of circumstances - or just because the supplier can!
  • unexpected ending of supply - even though you have a contract, the supplier stops supplying you because his price has gone up
We do not currently offer any insurance details, information or insights.
We are only happy to support suppliers who agree:
  • no automatic rollover unless on the same tariff, or the lowest tariff
  • notice can be given at any time after the initial contract period - even after any rollover
  • no price rise during any agreed contractual period
  • no changes in other contract terms without reasonable notice, and you can terminate if you don't like them
  • to continue to supply you as agreed for the contract duration
  • contracts in clear English

The following suppliers have agreed to these terms for smallprintbrian referrals. Registered business users will see details here.

Please be sure to read all your contracts - seek advice if in doubt. It could save you heartache and cash! We recommend

Remember - you'll almost always loose your supplier if it goes bust, whatever your contract says!
