What to do with your energy supplier when moving home

Before your move:

  • You will need to let your current energy supplier know the date of your move. It is recommend that you ring them at least 48 hours before the day of the move. You should also give them your new address so that they can send you your final bill.
  • On the day of your move you will need to take a final meter reading and send this onto your supplier. You should keep a record of this yourself to avoid any chance of discrepancies.
  • If you are in a rental property then your meter reading should be passed onto the landlord.
  • You may also want to leave a note for the new occupant that tells them who is currently supplying the energy to make things easier for them.

After your move:

  • The first step is to find out who is the current energy supplier of your new home. If the previous occupant hasn’t left these details then you can phone this helpline 0870 608 1524. Alternatively you can use the Find my Supplier website.
  • You will then need to take the meter readings and pass these onto the current supplier along with the date you moved into your new property.
  • At this point you will be placed onto a standard tariff with this supplier but it is recommended that you shop around to make sure you are getting the best possible deal. Using Which Switch should make that fairly simple.
