Setting Up Utilities Connection

Setting Up Utilities Connection


Connecting utilities such as energy, electricity, gas and water can usually be done within a few days to a week before moving in as it usually a straightforward process. Organising ahead of time may also save you from additional costs that some providers may charge for urgent connection.

Note that you need to organise for home phone and internet connection much more in advance as they may take up to several weeks to be connected and activated.

When connecting utilities you will generally be asked to provide details such as:

  • address of your place
  • date on which you want your service connected
  • your personal details such as name, date of birth for identification purposes and contact details such as phone numbers and email address

Which provider?

There is a large number of providers in Australia and choosing one can be a daunting task. The good news is that there are also many companies that make it easy for you to compare what the market offers based on your needs and preferences and they often act as a broker between the utilities companies and you without any additional cost to you:

  • connectnow
  • Direct Connect
  • Switchwise
  • Fast Connect
  • iSelect
  • You Compare

If you are renting, your real estate agent can usually also help you out with getting utilities connected prior to moving in and there should not be any additional costs to you for this service.
