Fees for Same Day and Urgent Connections

Nobody wants a shock when they get their first energy bill from their electricity provider.

While standard electricity connections are typically included in your overall move-in process, same-day and urgent connections sometimes come with a connection fee or exit fees from your previous energy retailer. 

These fees are usually set by the distributor and the costs can vary. Luckily, one of our friendly Moving Home specialists can talk you through the costs associated with urgent connections so you can plan your move-in budget accordingly.

Our team is highly trained and Melbourne-based, meaning they have first-hand experience in getting connected in Australia – making them your energy experts! This allows us to provide transparent information about these fees, helping you make informed decisions without surprises when you receive your first bill or new energy electricity bill.
