Shell Energy Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets

Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets: No telephone number on their website, no way to contact them over the phone. All comms go to a chat which dies after waiting 6 hours.

Overpromise, under deliver, and line own pockets

No telephone number on their website, no way to contact them over the phone. All comms go to a chat which dies after waiting 6 hours. Every conversation they are only focussed on creating up to date bills and not correct issues. I was transferred from Green by Ofgem, the first bill was incorrect as was estimated. Having given updated meter readings over 3 times a new bill was updated but the original was still classed as pending on the account. was told this bill would be corrected and overdue amount will be cleared within 48 hours. This was advised twice now and everytime I contact after wasting a further 6 hours to get through on the chat, I am only asked for more meter readings (be this after 2 days) yet the account still shows as incorrect. AVOID unless you want to be chasing your own tail. read more

Hoodwinked by Shell Crap Broadband

8 Nov 2021

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy Broadband published on Trustpilot.

Wow – so not my experience

Wow, these reviews are good. I was hoodwinked into taking out another year as a ‘technical’ IT guy came on the line & said he had ‘adjusted’ it so SKYPE would work now. I know, I’m a fool to believe this trick. It doesnt work, nor does streaming & the broadband is so slow it cuts out trying to download photos on facebook. I just wanted to cancel the rest of the contract, as I’m now using a works line for everything but the cancellation fee is for the full contact length. ie I’m stuck with a crap service until July. BEWARE – no scruples about taking your money for nothing. read more

Terrible Service from Shell Energy

The content below is sourced from current customer reviews of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Terrible service

Every time I contact customer services, I receive misleading and inaccurate information. I am truly regretting switching to them. Should the switch ever complete, I will seek to move away as soon as possible, and will happily pay any penalties. I feel sorry for those forced onto this firm under the supplier of last resort process.

After I switched from Sky to Shell…

After I switched from Sky to Shell broadband I’m experiencing either lost internet connection or poor connection wich I hadn’t with Sky. read more

Appalling Company, Shocking Service

Appalling company

Appalling company, customer service is non existent. They emailed me to inform me that I had requested a change in my tariff, which would result in an increase in charges. They could/would not provide the evidence that I had made this request (because I had not) and ignored my emails requesting information regarding such but instead continued to email me to advise my tariff would be changed in line with my request! They did not provide a working smart meter from the beginning of the contract as stipulated in the terms and after 3 months of my regular emails and phone calls to them requesting that I receive either a working smart meter, or the one initially supplied be placed or repaired, I finally received an email to say we can’t fix it or replace it, you will just have to manage without!!! Shocking service, I will be leaving this company as soon as my contract expires. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY AT ALL. read more

Shell is broken it needs major surgery!

Shell is broken it needs major surgery!

I have been a Shell Energy customer just under a year and I’ve made more complaints in that time than my 10 years with Npower!!
The latest complaint is that Shell Energy were refusing to apply my £50 refer a friend to myself and my friend saying I’ve already received it!!
The £50 I received was for a previous complaint running for months that I requested to receive that amount as a gesture of goodwill for the hours of stress I’ve had to contend with from a customer service team who all seem to be singing from different hymn sheets as I always have to spend hours going over my complaints repeating them to different advisers and CONSTANTLY never being called back when promised!!!
Steer clear of Shell Energy, try generating your own energy on a bike dynamo. read more

Shell broadband are the worst ever

Shell broadband are quite simply a complete con. My live date was 24/8/21 and all I got was sorry this and sorry that for the reasons they couldn’t connect it all up. It’s now 6/10/21 and I’ve just had to cancel it all together as it’s still not fitted up or connected. I advise anyone to not use this company as they are literally thieves. They are the worst service I’ve ever ever seen . There live chat and phone operators are incompetent to athe highest level. They push you to every department passing the buck all the time. It’s a shocking service and I have contacted bbc watchdog to make them aware of it too. Avoid this at all costs read more

Horrendous customer service from Shell Energy

Absolute hell to get in touch with

Abolute hell to get in touch with. Virtual Assistant is a waste of time and energy. I am already sorry I transfered to them. When I finally got through the lady was very pleasant and helpful.

Not trueful

I have just changed to Shell through one of their agents who came to my house to discuss terms and conditions. The agent was very polite and pleasant and felt he was treating me fairly. He offered me £50 credit on my bill as a referral from my son, who has also just joined Shell, and £50 to my son. He also said my first payment would be one month after joining Shell. Both offers are untrue. When calling Shell they informed me no such offer should be made. I have made a complaint of mis-selling and awaiting the result. I thought this practice had disappeared, but it appears I’m wrong. read more

Don’t bother getting Shell energy broadband

Don’t bother getting Shell energy broadband

Shell energy broadband appear to be very disorganized, so be prepared for unexpected charges and constant email follow ups:

1. They failed to correctly setup my direct debit three times, so I just gave up and paid with digitally each month.
2. They calculated my final bill (that was in credit) using the discount code used for the contract. This effectively gave me a 10% reduction in my refund.
3. They charged me for the router that was returned. I have provided the shipping details plus evidence that they signed and received it, but I’m still waiting for this charge to be cancelled. read more

Bad Mistake

Wow so far so bad can’t get the sky q boxes to work! The broadband band drops out for some reason. The router is embarrassing cheap and a horrible design. The Wi-Fi range is poor so my kitchen Alexa will not work or my ring door bell. No one in the family is talking to me now as its so so so bad!! This was not a good decision by me, wish I stayed with sky!! read more

Avoid this company like the plague

Avoid this company like the plague, I took over this property, Shell Energy was then the provider, unable to get through via the tel number, an automated message states leave your account number and tel number and someone will call back, this never happens, I switched to my previous supplier and I am still receiving computer generated letters / demands stating I owe them money, some of these letters state that if I don’t pay it will effect my credit rating, appalling, get your act together starting with a customer service tel contact. read more

Beware of Shell Energy’s costly renewal ploy

Beware of Shell Energy’s costly renewal ploy.

Shell Energy cannot be trusted!

When they notified me that renewal was due they provided a quote for the best tariff. But when I renewed the rates had been adjusted upwards, i.e. were not the same as they quoted. When they confirmed my intention to renew with them they did not advise what the new tariff rates would be, it was only because I telephoned them that I knew the rates had suddenly been increased. read more

Shell Energy Broadband is terrible

The content below is sourced from a current customer review of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot.

Broadband is terrible!

Absolutely terrible service on broadband. We got told our router would be sent out to our new property within 5-7working days. It did not turn up. We called the chase this after 7 working days and were told this had been cancelled but were not notified of this.

They then said we needed an engineer out this time and this would take an additional 2 weeks. It got to the day booked for the engineer to set it up and no one turned up. read more

Shell Superslow Broadband

Shell superslow broadband

Shell broadband started off good for the first few months, now has choked our broadband and we only get speeds of 2Mbps.

Avoid avoid avoid.

Disgusting company… broken promises, no respect, appalling customer service!

Had a perfectly working smart for 18months. Recently had another installed which not only has been done wrong, but has disconnected the one that has been working fine. On the verge of entering 3hours worth of phone calls, and still nothing has been sorted. read more

Terrible Customer Service from Shell Energy

Content sourced from a current customer review of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot. 23 August 2021

Terrible customer service

Trying to move your contract to a new home is a nightmare. Chat bots that copy and paste basic answers and customer service phone call takers who obviously don’t know what they are doing.

Passed over and over to different departments.

It’s quite simple, I’m moving tomorrow and would like to submit some readings for my new house.

It’s not rocket science. read more

A Trustpilot Verdict on Shell Energy: Utterly useless and incompetent

Content sourced from a customer review of Shell Energy published on Trustpilot 6 August 2021

Terrible customer service !!!

An awful unhelpful useless incompetent company with apalling customer service. We’ve been trying to resolve an issue with our meter for the last three months and we’re no further than we were on the first day!!

We’ve called numerous times, submitted photos more than once, Shell themselves have sent someone on three separate occasions to our house to look at the meter and those people took photos and submitted reports. read more
