A utility connection service for renters on the move
MOVING house is said to be one of the most stressful times in any person’s life – on top of cleaning, packing and moving your belongings, you will need to change or select your next utility providers. That’s why Rent.com.au offers a utility connection service, RentConnect, to make keep things simple.
More often than not, you will need to do the following when you move into your new property:
- Connect gas, electricity and telephone, a period of days or weeks in advance
- Set up a water account. Water should always be connected to the property, unless the home is brand new.
Rent.com.au offers RentConnect, a utilities connection service which allows you to move from one rental to another and avoid the hassle of having to arrange to disconnect and reconnect all your utilities. You can arrange at no cost to have all the connections set up on your behalf by filling out a simple form on rent.com.au.
