What you need to know about switching to Octopus Energy in Sale Moor Ward

Switching to any supplier in Sale Moor Ward involves more or less the same process. If you are moving from one property to another, then the process differs from if you are simply switching from one supplier to another in the same property. The most important thing to remember is to taking meter readings in both properties. When you leave your old property, be sure to take a meter reading and jot it down so you can provide information upon request of when you finished using energy in that property. Then, when you move into your next property, you must also take a meter reading. This is so your new supplier knows exactly when to start charging you for energy in your new place.

The only disadvantage to switching when you move house is that you will automatically start consuming energy on a default or 'deemed' contract. These tend to be pricier than a plan that you choose to switch to, so for the first month in your new property you might be spending a bit more than you had hoped. As a result, you want to make sure that you do your research as soon as possible to start the process. That way you can get started on a cheaper tariff as soon as possible and start saving.

If you decide that Octopus are the right supplier for you in Sale Moor Ward, then give them a ring and they can switch you over to your preferred plan in one quick phone call. If an alternative plan is better, then ring up our Switch Plan and we can switch you over to a new tariff in no time.

Before moving, take a meter reading so that you do not need to pay for energy that you haven’t used. * After you have your meter reading, it's time to sort out your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). * Once your MPRN is sorted, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't use.

If you are moving into a property that is already connected to the grid, the only thing you need to do is select a provider and tariff for your home. However, there is one thing you should be weary of when moving house: Whether you are moving into a new property or not, the house will be put under a deemed contract.
