Make sure you contact your electricity and gas supplier and let it know you’re moving – you should give it at least 48 hours’ notice. Then, on the day you move out, check your meter and inform your existing supplier of the readings and your new address so it can send you a final bill. Make sure you keep a note of the readings, and check they match your final bill.
When you move into your new home, take opening meter readings and inform the supplier of the new property as soon as you move in. If you’re unsure who your supplier is, check the ‘I don’t know who my current supplier is’ FAQ.
Once you’ve moved in, be sure to do an energy comparison – you’ll usually be put on a ‘deemed contract’ with the existing supplier to the property, which is often an expensive standard tariff. If you’re not sure what your usage is, our Cheap Energy Club can estimate with a few details about the property.
