If we work with your existing service provider, we can relocate your existing accounts or alternatively, sign you up to with a new provider.

These partners and their offers may change from time to time.

Do I pay to use this service?

While connection services by Yellow/move is free to you, the supply of your utilities or services at your home is not! So standard service provider connection fees and charges still apply.

How long do gas and electricity connections take?

This depends on the utility, the retailer, and whether we have all the information we need from you. The earlier you apply for your connections, the more likely your utilities will be connected on the date you request however we can’t guarantee this. At least three business days' notice of your move and your new address is preferred.

Do you have any indicative timeframes?
  • For a standard next weekday reconnection, the request must be received by 2pm the day prior.
  • Urgent same day connections are subject to the provider.
  • Saturday connections are subject to availability and the request should be received by 2pm day prior.
  • LPG connections can take up to 4 working days.
  • If you have a new or altered gas or electricity connection, or if your supply has been disconnected for 6 months or longer, you may need to provide a certificate of compliance or certificate of verification from a certified service provider before supply can commence.

Be aware that urgent same day, after hours, Saturday or public holiday connections may incur additional service provider fees. Weekend and public holiday connections are subject to availability. No connections can be arranged for Sunday. Connection requests received on a Saturday will be provisioned on the next working day.

Do you provide electricity and gas disconnection services?

Yes, we provide disconnection services if you are relocating with your existing service provider. To close an account you may be required to provide a final meter read, which you can provide yourself or ask your service provider to read it (a charge may apply).

How long do broadband connections take?

Generally, standard broadband connections take between 7-10 working days. However, fibre installations take much longer. Before proceeding with a fibre connection, your chosen broadband provider will discuss options with you.

How long does a SKY connection take?

We suggest you allow up to 10 days if you don’t have a SKY Dish installed already. If you do, the installation timeframe should be much shorter. Either way, you will hear from SKY within 24 hours to confirm your relocation or connection timeframe.
