Was switched to shell when previous company went bust. shell by far are the worst company I have ever delt with . 2 visits to fit a smart meter. Sending me a letter saying they have to increase my direct debit to over £400 a month way UNDER my usage.as I will not pay a ridiculous amount each month I cancelled the direct debit and simply pay each month for actual energy used not a penny more not a penny left. Shell have marked my credit file a month in arrears.but not updated it for over 3 months. Customer service is awful they simply too big to care as soon as I am able to switch I will be leaving my money be better spent elsewhere read more

Absolutely useless. My 80 year old mother has been constantly chased by them for payments she has already made and threatened with being cut off – happens every month. When you try and phone customer services they don’t know what they’re doing – you have to wait over 45 minutes to get through and they usually cut you off anyway. It’s nothing short of harassment – I’ve never known such a useless company read more

Pensioners with health issues Shell left without broadband and telephone for 5 weeks

“We are pensioners with health issues who rely on the internet and phone and Shellenergy left us without any service for 5 weeks…”

6 APRIL 2022

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

Left us with no service and no assistance for 5 weeks!

Had our broadband and phone line service switched to Shellenergy from the Post Office, worst move EVER! We lost our internet and phone service during storm Eunice and despite phoning Shell every day for a week we were just left hanging on for 20 minutes each time without ever getting to talk to anyone. No help either using the online ‘chat’ service (having to go into a kind neighbour for internet access, as we had none). I then raised an official complaint, which had one response asking for dates an engineer could call to inspect the fault, to which we offered 3 dates. None of which were confirmed or responded to. Despite waiting in, no engineer ever called! Many more emails were sent to Shellenergy on the complaints procedure, NONE of which were ever responded to! We are pensioners with health issues who rely on the internet and phone and Shellenergy left us without any service for 5 weeks and the issue has only been (easily) resolved by switching to another supplier. And to add insult to injury, they sent an email saying they would be invoicing us for the service up to date and including an early exit fee! Outrageous behaviour! For a multi billion £ company, they have no customer support or care, clearly focussed on profit rather than honest service!

Absolutely shocking

Absolutely shocking company never ever had anything SO BAD!! They have stolen my money that I had left with Green Energy absolutely no idea where they have used it or what they have done with it!! Sent in my meter readings both gas and electric on Monday evening 28th March as I had a flight on Tuesday at 06.00am and guess what – it is now the 6th April and NO BILL total farce!! I have tried time and time again to speak to someone and I get out through to SOUTH AFRICA I cannot understand what is being said to me this is THE WORST OF THE WORST COMPANY EVER I have had enough now they can take me to court!!!! Oh yes AND THEY NEVER RESPOND!! I have been promised calls and guess what NOTHING

Worst broadband company ever used. If I could give zero I would.
Speed awful.
Informed by them after being switched from the post office that contract had finished so then transferred to sky.
Then told £56 charge for ending contract early.
After 4 hrs of calls ( three times asking to be called back by a supervisor which they never did), leaving a complaint online customer service which they did not respond to and then being charged £56 I would never recommend them. Over 1 hr wait times phone calls 2 mpxl download speed and awful customer service.
Good luck if you have an issue. ( sky in the meantime have been brilliant, easy to contact and super helpful) read more

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

Nov 2021:

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…

Appalling Company, Shocking Service

4 Nov 2021:

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

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

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

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
