Moving is a stressful time. There’s organizing all your items, packing everything so it makes the move safely and finalizing all the details at your new home so things are ready once you arrive. Activating or transferring your utilities might not be near the top of your moving priorities list, but it should be.
Prior To Your Move
Before you arrive at your new home, it’s imperative that you have organized for your utilities to be activated and ensure they are turned on so everything is set up once you arrive. You don’t want to realize as you’re moving everything into your new home that you don’t have electricity.
Contact your energy supplier and let them know of your upcoming move. For this, you’ll need a firm move date. That way your provider knows when to turn off or transfer your service. From there you can work through a few different options.
Transferring Your Utility Provider
If you are happy with your provider, you can request that they transfer your service to your new address. To do this, all you need to do is reach out to your energy provider. If you are a current Agway Energy Services customer in New York, Pennsylvania or Maryland, you can begin the process of transferring your electricity or natural gas on our website.
Starting With A New Provider
Moving is also the perfect time to explore your options at your new address. Shop around and ensure to look for providers that offer additional services and benefits with your energy supply. For example, Agway Energy Services offers the EnergyGuardTM repair protection program that covers service to many common parts and repairs to your A/C unit and the electrical lines in your home.
If you opt to start with a new provider, ensure your old provider sends your final bill to your new address so you can avoid any late fees.
Getting all of your utilities organized prior to the week of your move will help ensure that your utilities are activated and alleviate some stress during your move.
