About Us

Never has the need to help others been what it is today.

A little background about us, Alan and Teresa Moore of More Savings

Prior to being a UW partner, both myself and Teresa were serving police officers. I worked as a police officer predominantly in the East End of London for 30 years before retiring in 2017.

Teresa is still a serving police officer, but also works part-time with me with More Savings.

We have been happily married for nearly 10 years and are proud parents to two amazing girls who are 2 and 4. We began our journey with UW back in 2018.

Why did we choose to partner with Utility Warehouse?

We became partners with UW due to the flexible nature of the business. Being able to spend more time with our little girls conceived through IVF (which were truly miracle children!) is incredibly important to us. Being a UW partner gives us more control over our work-life balance. 

The friends and relationships we have formed with other partners have been literally life-changing. The incentives on offer give us the opportunity to qualify for free holidays, days out at the races, Christmas food hampers and much more.

We don’t consider ourselves salespeople, as, after all, the services on offer are what everyone needs on a daily basis. We just offer those services through a highly reputable company that is based in the UK and that is a more cost-effective option. The ability to help others save money is exceptionally rewarding to us!

What makes The Moore’s most excited about continuing to work with Utility Warehouse in the future?

Never has the need to help others been what it is today. With spiralling energy costs and the cost of living rising all the time, the opportunity that UW has to offer to not only save money on their bills but give people the chance to put extra money in their pockets by simply helping others has never been greater…

Some fun facts about Alan and Teresa Moore!

Want to know a little ‘Moore’ about the husband and wife team at the heart of More Savings? Who out of Alan or Teresa Moore is a huge Spandau Ballet fan? Which of them had the honour of guarding the Queen Mother’s coffin whilst laying in State? All will be revealed below!

What was your first paying job?

Alan – I worked in the warehouse dept at Texas Homecare , so obviously all my friends used to call me Texas Tom , hard work but great people.

Teresa – My first job at the age of 16 was as a carer. I used to do home help for those less fortunate. My job consisted of personal health care for the elderly, the aged and the physically disabled. I also used to care for people with learning disabilities, such as assisted days out and personal transport.

Who inspires you?
Teresa – The one person who has inspired me throughout my life was my mother. She was the most giving and caring person I have ever known. Unfortunately, she passed away a few years ago and to know I am also helping other people as she did her whole life will make her proud.

Alan – its an interesting question and one I have had to think hard about, I feel those that have inspired me most are ironically the very people that I have not wanted to become as they have driven me to become a better version of myself. All the doubters or underachievers that I have met in my previous jobs or socially have inspired me to achieve more and help others do the same.

What kind of music do you like?

Teresa – I love anything acoustic and soulful. I love the big ballads as well, plus Ben Howard and Mumford and Sons. Ed Sheeran was my first dance when we got married, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a bit of Ed!

Alan – I love all the above but have always been a massive Spandau Ballet fan!

What’s the best place you’ve travelled to?

Teresa – I would like to say it was somewhere hot and very scenic like Mexico where I went for my honeymoon, or the Caribbean, which I have been to numerous times. But for me, my most happy holiday was in Scotland. Alan and I toured Scotland back in 2012 before we married, and to spend the evenings overlooking Loch Lomond and Loch Ness, for me was ‘home’. For some reason, we have not been back, but I would love to take our 2 and 4-year-old girls there very soon.

Alan? – Mauritius is without doubt the most beautiful place I have been. We have qualified for the Maldives holiday of a lifetime through being a partner with UW and three other spectacular holidays to Mexico, Portugal and a Mediterranean Cruise, which sadly due to COVID have been delayed so their stacking up for a great time over the next year or so.

What’s your favourite food?

Teresa – Peri-Peri chicken with chips and salad. My favourite restaurant is called The Angolana in Loule in Portugal. THE best chicken and steak in the WORLD!

Alan – I have to agree with my wife again (the key to a happy marriage!), The Angolana is lovely and the steak is gorgeous (like my wife!)

What’s your favourite movie?

Teresa – The Shawshank Redemption. It makes you realise that through adversity anything is possible. And my favourite quote from the movie is “get busy living, or get busy dying”.

Alan – So many to choose from, but I really love Braveheart, which also has an amazing quote “Every man dies, not every man really lives”. Powerful stuff, and very true!

Do you play any sports?

Teresa – I used to play all sorts of sports and fitness. Now my fitness is a 2 and 4-year-old!

Alan – I was a keen footballer in my youth, and since retiring from playing I referee games on a Saturday to keep involved in the sport I love.

Who is your favourite sports team?

Teresa – I am a keen Fulham fan and Alan is a long-serving Manchester City fan, so he is now living the dream at last! We are looking forward to the two teams meeting next season in the Premier League, and I predict a sound 3-0 home win at Craven Cottage (I can dream!)

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Teresa – A few famous people I have encountered, however, my highlight was guarding the Queen Mother’s coffin when she was resting in state when the Royal Family paid tribute to her. I had been in the police for 1 year at that point, and almost 21 years later that is still one of my proudest professional moments.

Alan – During my policing career, I have met numerous famous people. I once stopped and spoke to Frank Bruno, as well as the GOAT of snooker, Ronnie O’Sullivan!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Teresa – At first I wanted to join the Army and applied to the Police and Army at the same time. When I was accepted by both I opted for the Police so I could stay close to my family.

Alan – From a very early age, I always wanted to join the police and be able to help others. There was also great satisfaction in putting real baddies where they belong and getting closure for affected families.

What’s one thing you’re really bad at?

Teresa – Maths, which just goes to show that anyone can be a success in this business!

Alan – Dress sense, I am lucky to have a wife that helps me wear the right clothes for the right occasion!

What’s one thing you’re really good at?

Teresa – Caring and giving. I would give anything I have to make someone happy or smile.

Alan – Saying I will do something and doing it. Keeping to my promises and not letting people down.

What show are you currently binge-watching?

Teresa – Anything crime based. Line of Duty, The Staircase, and I love real crime murder cases.

Alan – I love comedy, with my favourites being Only Fools and Horses, Gavin and Stacey, Friends and The Office.

Do you have any hidden talents?

Both – Having the energy to look after a 2 and 4-year-old. That has to be a talent, right ??
