The prospect of moving house is always a daunting experience. From packing, to cleaning, and organising removalists, it is not hard to see how the thought of unplugging, turning off and changing your energy provider may slip your mind during the move. Below is a list of our top four pieces of information to know about transferring your electricity and utilities when moving house.
Before you officially move homes, it is always ideal to have a look around and compare electricity prices with different providers. Considering your home life and how many people reside in your home are factors to consider when factoring different energy providers. Energy made easy is an Australian Government website that allows you to compare electricity and gas offers.
Scheduling the disconnection of your electricity is an easy part of moving out. What we suggest is scheduling your electricity disconnection a few hours after that you have officially moved out of your unit, that way you will still have access to electricity on moving day.
It is a good idea to make up a list of electronic utilities that you’ll need to call to transfer over as well. These can include Internet, phone, electricity and/or gas. However, Moving.com does recommend contacting your provider beforehand as different providers vary in times that they need to be notified of disconnection/reconnection.
Creating a checklist is not just for the overly organised. A checklist is a way to stay organised but also allows you not to forget anything while in the chaotic notion of moving. Energy Australia has created a checklist for moving house that has guidelines about what to do for the weeks leading up to the move.
At some point in our lives or another, we will move house so it’s best to be organised and well prepared for the moving day. With all of the other things on your mind while moving, electricity should be the last thing.
