Home move can be a lot of stress and hassles especially where there is a long “To Do” list.
Before Your Home Move
- Arrange with a moving company ahead of time (3-4 weeks) as waiting till last minute could be costly.
- Call your utility service providers at least 2-4 weeks before the move date.
- Ask your retailer to de-energize your energy on your move date.
- Provide your new mailing address to your existing supplier so they can send you a closing bill.
On Your Home Moving day
Take a meter reading and if possible, take a screen shot with your phone, and keep a note of it.
Check the thermostat and turn off water and lights before you leave the house on your moving day.
After Your Home Move
Check Your Bank Account For Refunds: If Your Account Is In Credit, You Should Be Refunded This Sum Automatically.
If You owe money to your old service provider, this amount may be taken as a single withdrawal from the account set up with the retailer. You may not be able to switch your retailer if the amount owed is significant e.g. $500. Therefore, you’ll either need to clear or reduce the debt ahead of your move or transfer your current deal to your new Property.
