costs for relocating services utilities

Post by mrcrappy » Thu, 19 May 2011 9:22 pm

good evening all,

We will be moving houses shortly. I was hoping someone had a rough idea.

Are there any fees that may be incurred for moving services such as Starhub, SP utilities to a new property. eg. costs to reconnect etc.

Thanks in advance.

Starhub there will be a reconnection fee, but I'm not too sure with SP.

If the new place is cable ready there is no charge from Starhub - they just switch it over on the day you tell them. If you want to add a point it's between $100 - 200 depending on your place.

SP Services will require another $500 deposit on the new place - which will be opened under a new account number. This can be added to your first bill at your new residence. You can use your initial deposit to pay the balance off the first account and then they will ask whether you want a check mailed or the balance transferred to your new account.
