What our clients think

We’ve been incredibly impressed with the service from Trident. We’ve had an on-going issue with a shipper-less gas supply, dating back 8 years. Suzanne not only got the gas supply registered within months but also negotiated a saving in excess of £80k with the gas supplier to waiver gas consumed in that time. They have far surpassed our expectations with their efficiency, effectiveness and positive can-do attitude and we’d have no hesitation in recommending Trident’s services.
