Charlotte Area Utilities Charlotte Apartments

When you move to a new city, there's always a lot that you need to do. It can sometimes take a while for utilities to be activated. It's a good idea to scout ahead and contact your new utility providers to see how you should best go about getting your utilities set up.

You might need to show proof of address before you are allowed to set up your utilities. You might also need a picture id as well. If you are already established in your home, the information below can also help you if there are any problems with your service. If you are moving within the city, you might have to just contact your current provider to transfer service to your new location. Also, some providers only service parts of the city. Know if you are leaving their coverage area and how that will affect you.

In addition, if you are planning to do any construction on your property or dig in your yard, you should contact you local utility companies. This is to make sure you don't dig in to any underground wires or plumbing. You could not only seriously hurt yourself, but also cause a major problem with utility service in your area. This is a smart and safe way to make sure that you don't do anything foolish while making improvements to your land.
