We hope this will be helpful to you during the moving process. This site is not all inclusive. Please let us know if there are any additions that need to be made. It is best to contact the utility companies at least a week in advance to ensure a smooth move. If you are purchasing or leasing, utilities should be in your name on the first day of the lease or on the day of the closing. Please double check with your agent or property manager to see if you need gas heat or water. If you are moving out of a rental or selling your home, please schedule the cancellation of your utilities for the day after the closing or the day after the tenant moves in to ensure a smooth move.
