Moving Utilities

We all know that moving is an incredibly taxing and harried time, so tasks that don’t need to be completed immediately often get left for the last minute. Switching over utilities is usually one of those chores that is completely forgotten about until the day of your move, creating extra stress for you and your family. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Changing over utilities from your old home to your new one is easy. Here are a few tips to help you get it done sans stress.

Plan Accordingly

Thinking ahead is the best way to avoid any complications when dealing with your utilities. Let your utility providers know the dates of your move so that you ensure all your utilities are set up when you arrive. It’s also a good idea to figure out which utilities you’ll need immediately and which ones can wait a little longer. You can also ask and see if there are any discounts for starting service in your new home.

Make Sure Your Accounts Are Current

No one likes finding surprise bills, so before you move, call your utility providers and make sure your accounts are up-to-date. Pay any overdue bills or account balances to avoid paying late fees and other charges. If your new home is serviced by the same utility company and you have a back balance, it can delay or cancel your ability to turn service on in your new home. You can also ask to see if you are owed any refunds or deposits back. Make sure you write down the name of whom you spoke with in case you need to speak to that person again regarding your account.

Forward Your New Address

It’s important that utility companies are able to reach you, so make sure all companies have your new address on file. Updating your address will ensure that you receive invoices and updates for your current service offerings.
