Switching Utilities to Prepare for a Move in MD, DC & VA

During the hustle and bustle of a move, it’s easy to forget important tasks, like changing your address with community groups or, worse, forgetting to disconnect your utilities. Disconnecting your utilities from your old home and reconnecting utilities to your new home is an important step in the moving process. If forgotten, it could leave you in the dark on the first night in your new home.

To avoid being left without utilities, make sure to stay organized and contact all of your service providers well before moving day. Know what you are turning off and who to contact to turn these items on at your new location close to you moving date.

If you are moving locally and using the same utilities company in your new home as your old, communicate with each company that you would like to transfer services instead of starting a new account. You will avoid paying termination fees or security deposits!
