Costs Involved in Gas Meter Move

Postby spelbound » Tue Nov 14, 2017 8:50 pm

Hi all. After some general advice regarding gas and electric meter move.

Having a new kitchen fitted and would like to move the meters from one side of an internal wall (kitchen) to the other (utility room). The move is literally 6 inches through the wall, and as far as I know requires no additional work up to the property e.g. the meter tails need lengthening only.

Npower have advised they won't do this as it means the meterboard being moved.

I spoke to Cadent who have advised that the gas meter move would cost £760!!! It might cost less, depending on the survey, but I have to pay £760 in advance and wait to see if they refund.

Does this seem right? Any advice or suggestions?
