One easy step that could very well save you money is to take a meter reading before you move. Like with any big change, there are some steps that you need to complete before you move house. You want to make sure that you are not paying for energy that you are not able to use! Once you have the meter reading and Meter Point Reference Number you are ready to make the switch!

To make your life a bit easier, you should complete the following before leaving your current home. For this reason, we've prepared a moving checklist so that you won't leave anything behind! So, let’s begin: * Number 1 and the most important thing! Before moving, take a meter reading. This way, you're not paying 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 situated, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't or would not be able to use.

When moving to a new city such as Worth Valley Ward, setting up your new electric and gas can be difficult. When you move, if you do not switch to a new supplier or plan type with your current supplier, you will be under a “deemed contract”, or standard tariff of the previous homeowner’s supplier until you make a switch. You can call the supplier directly, either the one that you currently have or a new one that you have found through research. A better option might be to call us at Switch Plan to help you find the best deal.

Switching to Octopus Energy in Worth Valley Ward

Switching to any supplier in Worth Valley 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 Worth Valley 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.
