Who does MoveCompare work with?
We work with most of the UK's top providers to find you great deals. Our searches don't include every single provider in the market – a very small number opt out of all comparison sites, or some of the services we offer and others do not meet the strict partner criteria we use to protect our customers.
For electricity and gas tariff comparison, we work with the majority of energy suppliers that you can switch through us. We also give customers the option to see a wider view of the market. Some energy suppliers choose for example not to make their tariffs available through comparison sites. Therefore, we cannot switch you to all the tariffs available.
We regularly check that all our direct partners are regulated, however, if you wish to check the insurance provider you are dealing with is regulated (for example, by the Financial Conduct Authority, or Prudential Regulation Authority, if applicable). You can do this by checking the Financial Services Register on the Financial Conduct Authority's website.
While MoveCompare does get paid a fee from providers, generally when a transaction is made, this doesn’t affect the way we rank products in your results page. When you enter your details into our site, we’ll present you with quotes and deals that meet your demands and needs. Your results are always ordered from the cheapest to the most expensive, before you’re able to use our filters to suit your needs.
We work with dozens of providers, across a wide variety of product types to help you find the right deal, but we can’t guarantee that every provider and offer available is covered. However, we compare quotes and deals with big, medium and smaller providers, to offer you fantastic choice with little effort. By using our comparison service, you’ll save lots of time and can still get a great deal.
Protection of your details is of highest importance to us. We are continually focusing on ensuring your data that you provide us is secure. So you can compare results from a wide selection of insurance providers, once you have completed entering your details into our site we will pass these details onto our partners so they can calculate results for you. We then display the results, ordered by lowest price first and also displaying a summary of the key policy features. When you select ‘More details’ we supply further details of what is included as standard, what is not included but available to add and what this policy doesn’t come with. Further information is available on the provider’s website. When you select ‘Go to insurer’ the insurance provider will have your details, you need to check your details and the policy information before purchase. Some of our product comparison services are provided by partners. Some products such as broadband and money products do not require you to enter your details in order to compare different packages.
When you use our service, you will receive an email confirming your results. It's straight forward, we're here to find you a great value deal – nothing more, nothing less – which is why you'll only hear from us through the channels you select. You can choose for us to automatically get you quotes when your insurance is due for renewal and you can sign up to alerts when you could be overpaying on your energy. You can also choose to let us keep you up to date with ways to save, product news and exciting information about our rewards.
You can manage your details in one place and this is when you complete a quote you will have the option to specify your preferences.
