Sometimes people want to keep their energy tariffs when they move home. This is usually the case if they are on a particularly good deal. So is it possible to take your energy deal with you when you move? In most cases, yes.

When it comes to moving home you may have the option of either keeping your current energy tariff or simply running a quick price comparison based on your new address and selecting the cheapest deal available there. Either way you'll need to call your energy supplier and let them know at least 48 hours before the move. If your energy supplier says you're current plan is available for your new home, don't make a final decision without checking your options.

It is always a good idea to run a gas and electricity price comparison for your new address as soon as possible. This will provide you with an overview of the different tariffs available to you and let you pick the most suitable. It could well be that your new home is eligible for a different selection of plans than your previous one.

If you don't want to stick with your energy plan then contact your energy supplier at least 48 hours before you move and they might waive any cancellation fees you might otherwise have been required to pay.
