Connecting the utilities in your new home

Connecting the utilities in your new home

If you are making a move, you will need to make sure that you have made all the necessary arrangements to have your utilities connected prior to moving into your new home.  Electric utilities, cable TV, telephone, gas utilities, water utilities, satellite TV and high-speed internet should already be connected when you arrive at your new home.

A house that is lacking in utilities such as domestic gas, telephone, cable TV and power utilities is going to be very uncomfortable for both you and your family.  It is therefore important to ensure that you have informed the utility companies of your impending change of address at least two weeks ahead of time in order for them to make the necessary arrangements before the relocation.

Ensure that the utility companies take final readings of any meters prior to the move and safely store away the bills or reports.  Your new address should be given to the utility companies to make certain that you will receive their letters and bills after the move.

Do comparisons of the rates and services offered by different utility companies to ensure that you are getting the best deal from your current suppliers.  This is a process that can be accomplished quite easily these days by making use of the internet, and a lot of money and time can often be saved by using this method.
