Calling Switch Plan is free and the whole process only takes a few minutes. If you are moving into a new home in Greater London and want to switch to a new energy contract, then the process is slightly different to if you are staying in the same property, but not much. There are just a few extra steps for you to take.

When you leave your previous residence, take a last meter reading, and when you enter your new property, take a first meter reading. Jot these both down and you will be able to provide proof to your energy supplier of your consumption if you find yourself being overcharged.

Let you energy supplier know that you are moving at least 48 hours prior to your move to they can make necessary arrangements for you. If you don't know who your energy supplier is, visit Ofgem website, or check out a recent energy bill. Whether you are moving into a rented property, or you are a new homeowner, this process is more or less the same.

You should start researching your new energy supplier before moving house, but remember that you can't switch suppliers before your official move in day.
