Moving Across Texas? 5 Tips for Transferring Your Prepaid Electricity Service

5 Tips for Transferring Your Prepaid Electricity Service

If you’re moving across Texas, transferring your energy to another house or apartment can be very time-consuming. It’s hard enough when you have a lot of free time on your hands. When you’re moving across the Lone Star State, however, making sure your energy utilities are transferred can be that much harder.

Transferring your electricity to your new residence is just one issue you will need to deal with before you can call a new energy provider. But this task doesn’t have to make you want to tear your hair out. Following are five tips to help ensure you have a much easier time, at least with this part of your move.

Learn About the Disconnection Policies of Your Prepaid Electricity Plan

  • Following this first step is the most important. Don’t get caught in a situation where you arrive at your new home or apartment to find out you don’t have electricity. That can happen if you don’t follow your energy service provider’s disconnection protocol. If you owe your prepaid electricity retailer money, pay them before you move. Having an outstanding balance will cause you trouble if you don’t pay it, or make arrangements to do so.

Organize All of Your Utilities Before Moving

  • Write down all of your utilities, including your prepaid electricity provider. Next to each entry on your list, write down the utility provider’s phone number, account number, and when each service will be turned off or transferred. If you are owed a refund from your prepaid electricity provider, write down the date you’ll receive it. If you owe your prepaid energy provider money, write down the balance and its due date also.

Don’t Disconnect When You Can Transfer Your Prepaid Energy Services

  • Some prepaid light companies will allow you to transfer your service to your new residence. This can happen if you move to an area where the provider sells services. Transferring energy services can save you a lot of time and even money. If you don’t need to sign up with a new energy provider, why spend all of the time on research, calls and emails in order to find the best deal?

Disconnect If You Can’t Transfer Energy Services

  • In the best case scenario, you’ll be able to transfer your prepaid electricity services to your new residence. Unfortunately, you won’t always be able to stay with your REP (retail electricity provider). If not, you will need to disconnect your electricity before you move. You can usually arrange it so your energy services stay on until the day you move.

Turn On Your Prepaid Electricity Plan On Your Move-In Day

  • When you follow the previous four tips, it will make things a lot easier for you. But there’s still one thing you have to do: get your prepaid electricity turned on in your new home. Most of the time, you can get your electricity turned on the day you arrive. If you want to be on the safe side, get your energy services turned on the day before you and your family or roommates arrive.

Hardly anyone likes to move. While you and your family may love the Lone Star State with all of your hearts, moving across your favorite U.S. state could still be a hassle. Your moving problems will multiply if you owe any prepaid light companies an overdue balance, or if you can’t transfer your prepaid light services to your new residence. When you sign up with a prepaid energy service provider, however, a lot of issues that can come with transferring utilities can disappear altogether.

Did you just learn you can’t transfer your prepaid electricity account because you’re moving to a place where the provider doesn’t do business? Or, you might be tired of paying expensive deposits, going through credit checks, or signing contracts. We would love to talk with you about why signing up with Prepaid Lights will be well worth your while. So, give us a call or email us.
