Change Utilities

When relocating, transferring your utilities is essential to ensure a smooth transition. Here are 10 simple steps to help you manage the process effectively:

Create a List of Utilities to Change:

Make a comprehensive list of all the utility services you currently use in your current home. Common ones include:
Electricity (Power)
Water and Sewage
Cable TV
Waste Removal

Re-evaluate Your Utility Services:

Consider whether you’ll be canceling or transferring services. If you’re moving within the same city or state, you can likely use the same providers as before.

Research New Utility Service Providers:

If you’re moving to a new city or area, research utility service providers in your destination. Check local government websites and ask local experts for recommendations.

Contact Your Current Utility Companies:

Notify your current utility providers of your impending move. Inquire about procedures for closing your account and transferring service to a new owner (if applicable).

Pay Any Outstanding Balances:

Settle any outstanding bills with your current utility companies before the move.

Get Back Any Utility Deposits:

If you’ve paid utility deposits, make sure to request a refund or transfer them to your new address.

Find Utility Service Providers in Your New Area:

Contact utility companies in your new location to set up services. Ask about installation dates and any necessary appointments.

Be Present During New-Home Service Activation:

When your new utilities are being activated, be available to ensure a smooth process.

Change Your Address with the USPS:

Update your address with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to receive mail at your new home.

Do a Final Meter Reading Before You Move Out:

Take a final meter reading for utilities like electricity and gas before leaving your current home.

Remember, transferring utilities may not be the most exciting part of moving, but it’s crucial to avoid any unpleasant surprises in your new home.
