Can I switch if I am about to move house?
Yes you can. For the most accurate estimate on how much you could save by switching the supplier in your new property you'll need to find out which gas and electricity company currently supplies the energy in your new home and the approximate size of the annual energy bills. The previous occupier or your landlord should have an energy bill they can refer to.
But if you can't find out, Which? Switch can estimate usage from some details about the property, such as how many people will live there and how many bedrooms there are. Simply select 'I do not have a bill in front of me' and fill in the required fields. Go to our gas and electricity switching calculator now to get started.
To find the current gas supplier for a property, call the Meter Number Helpline on 0870 608 1524. To find the current electricity supplier, you'll need to contact the local electricity supplier in your new property's area.
You'll need to have the energy bills transferred into your name in order to switch, as there may be unpaid bills from the previous occupier to settle.
