Trustpilot review of Shell Energy: Absolute sh!t show of an organisation

Featured below are extracts from negative customer reviews about Shell Energy posted during the last several days on Trustpilot.  Visit the Shell Energy page on Trustpilot to view all reviews in their entirety, positive and negative (and Shell Energy responses). Watch out for any fake reviews. Note the reoccurring themes in the negative reviews, including difficulty in communicating with the company. This article posted on 1st Sept 2020.

Unethical, dishonest, greedy & dishonourable

Unethical (persuaded 85 year old to switch whilst shopping in Asda). Misleading (direct debit fell far short of usage & so accumulated a huge debt). Dishonest (agreed her repayment proposal & then additionally took an extra £100 by direct debit). Greedy (want to charge an exit fee). Dishonourable (blocked her move to another energy provider). Unreasonable length of time to get through to customer service. Agents pleasant & sympathetic but they have no authority.

Don’t trust! They lied to my face to get me to switch to them!

I switched to shell because they told me the standing charges were a lot less than I was initially paying and trusted I was being told the truth as it was face to face in my own gome. I never had anything to show me the rates and couldn’t access my online account for months and when I finally could I realised I was paying more than double! When I contacted them they told me as it was a face to face sign up there was nothing they could do as it was my word against their’s! So far in 8 months it cost me about £400 more than if I’d stayed with British gas so I would definitely not trust or recommend them ever! read more

Do not use Shell Broadband as your WiFi provider

Some advice for your advisors: if they take a phone call, ensure they do what they say they will do. Been pestered to pay a bill I do not even owe due to your employees’ stupidity for months now. Impossible to call you unless you want to spend over an hour on hold. Don’t bother emailing, the ‘1 day sla’ is now 2 weeks and still no response

THE worse Internet provider ever!!

THE worse Internet provider ever!!! Keep constantly cutting out, the signal is weak. Im working from home hence to shell I lost earning!!!! THE WORSE EXPERIENCE!!! read more

Utterly diabolical customer service

Utterly diabolical customer service. Please avoid at all costs – they are cheap for a reason.

I’ve repeatedly spent hours on the phone to customer service trying to resolve poor internet speed and non-existent customer support. I’ve been charged for engineer call outs when the issue was not fixed and remained open on their systems for a further 3 weeks. I’ve been promised call backs which don’t occur. No accountability on their behalf, no authorisation in customer service to make any decisions or provide any help. read more

Threatening me when I’m not a customer

Moved to a house that was unfortunately running on gas and electric by shell energy. Informed them I was switching to a new company and gave them my meter readings. I am still (despite 4 phone calls) being hassled for money from when I didn’t own the house? How is a company this large so thick? What do you not understand about me not living in the company before my dates given to you. They are useless, communication is none existent, and their customer service team is awful. Will never ever use this company and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone. read more

What an absolute nightmare of a…

What an absolute nightmare of a company, they overcharged me by 200 percent and when I closed the services they quoted that the initial estimate was done by the previous supplier (first utility) and that I had no choice but to pay them, I then went to the Ombudsman Services who totally disregarded the facts.
in my opinion the Ombudsman Services must have links to shell energy as I was treated with the same disregard. this is my opinion and truthfully. anyone with any common sense would stay well clear of these companies read more

They don’t communicate

They don’t communicate, and they just charge what they want, tried leaving them so they put the bill up, rip offs dont go with shell energy worst company ever!

Rubbish customer service

Rubbish customer service. Just spent half hour waiting to speak to someone about confusing emails re tariff, then after two minutes I was cut off!!!

Horrendous company. AVOID!

I would give 0 stars if I could. Was with first utility which was fine then Shell bought it. It came up to my renewal date with only a marginal increase in cost so I renewed. A month or so later they said my bill was going up for £57 to £83! Why wasn’t it mentioned when I was at renewal stage that I was in arrears?! They tricked me into renewing and tried to increase my bill. Now I’m leaving I have to pay £60 to leave as well as my the other money owed. Outrageous. Will never ever ever ever return to them. read more

The distressed unwell disabled pensioner terrorised by Shell Energy

By John Donovan

On 16 December 2019, we published extracts from emails that a distressed terrorised pensioner “John” sent to Shell Energy. The self-explanatory extracts are republished below.

Printed in red italics is the latest update from John following a decision just reached by the Energy Ombudsman.

Other equally pissed off customers of Shell Energy – there are hoards of them – may be interested in his insight gained from actually filing an official complaint with the supposedly independent regulator.  read more

Awful company

Awful company, thank god i wasn’t a signed up member!
Moved into a property supplied by Shell Energy, switched straight away, took meter reading and supplied to them on the 1st day.
Then they start sending text messages to say to call a number to pay, search of the number online shows it as a scamming number rated as ‘Dangerous’ on ‘Who Called Me’.
When you call the number they want all your personal details and bank details without even confirming anything to prove who they are and they know who is calling them, they ended up hanging up on me when I asked them to confirm some of my details even just my door number.
Go to the website, its just as bad trying to get some contact details, eventually had to fill out a form as even the online chat isn’t a chat, its automated.
Eventually get an email from them confirming the details, and I pay and send them confirmation via email, then I continue to get threatening messages about outstanding payment and debt collectors.
Awful company, I’m guessing staff members have increased their ratings on here, have a look at their ratings on some other sites. read more

Don’t make the same mistake I made and use Shell Energy

The customer service for this company is non-existent, been waiting for help on call for the past 45 minutes. Never ever have I experienced such awful customer service… Avoid this company at all costs.

Shell Energy driving many customers to illness and despair?

By John Donovan

Postings and messages I have read or received in the last 48 hours lead me to the conclusion that bullying understaffed Shell Energy customer service is driving some of its locked-in customers to illness and despair.

Some staff must be uncomfortable having to treat vulnerable customers so shabbily and ruthlessly. How will they feel if someone does resort to suicide, as has been threatened?

There are so many disturbing customer postings on Trustpilot and other review sites about Shell Energy that there may be enough potential claimants to warrant a class-action lawsuit? read more

Avoid. Hidden Fees And Terrible Customer Service

UPDATE 14/01/2020

After reading the reply from Shell Energy regarding my review, I just wanted to update my review state that She’ll Energy clearly don’t know their products or read these reviews properly!

Avoid.

Terrible customer service, hidden “Cease” fee of £15 even when you have fulfilled your minimum contract with them.

Customer service team do not speak with each other, nice and friendly on Social Media, then arrogantly blunt and rude on any private messages.

Will never use any service that is branded with a Shell logo ever again. read more

By John Donovan: 05 JAN 2020

Selection of extracts from pissed off customer reviews about Shell Energy UK posted since 24 Dec 2019 on review sites such as Trustpilot.

From Shane on Trustpilot, 4 Jan

Hideous company a total disgrace to the electrical supply industry.

Absolutely NO customer service as they never answer the phone just look at all the reviews that complain about this.

Constantly overcharge and dispite being massively in credit they never refund the money they hold…

I can only assume all their staff wear Stetsons and ride around on horses as they are the biggest bunch of cowboys you will ever have the misfortune to deal with totally incompetent ill-informed and incapable of supplying any help or support. read more
