If you find yourself in this situation we’ll help you connect your electricity to your new address. We can also help you with your gas connection, water, phone, internet, and Pay-TV in one easy call hassle-free call.

We can also arrange any reconnections are disconnections that you’re after, upon an early business day notice.

We work with Australia’s leading retail distributors, we’ll lay out the energy plans and who you choose is entirely your call.

At MyConnect we’ve been helping Aussies move since 2006, with over 1000 Google reviews Aussie movers have rated us the best in the business with a 4.8-star rating! 

Our friendly team of energy experts understand that moving into a new house for the first time is stressful for any new homeowner, which is why we like to keep utilities simple and the best part is- we’re a completely FREE service!

Let Us Know Early

With an urgent connection, it’s best to contact us and give us a phone call as early as possible to ensure your power is turned on as soon as you walk in the door. If it does slip your mind on moving day, however, an electricity or gas company can still receive the request to arrange power connections and will arrange the whole process the next business day.

Urgent Electricity Connections

While there are plenty of retail energy providers, some retailers offer same-day connections from Monday through Friday. Others may offer Saturday same-day electricity also. Standard utility connection fees, supply charges, and exit fees can be found with the energy provider and their electricity plans.

There needs to be clear access to your meters on the day of your connection. Your meter will differ depending on the style of your property. If you live in an apartment, unit or townhouse, it is likely that all of the meters are located in one central area. In older unit blocks there may just be one meter for all the properties. In a house, the electricity and gas meter is usually near the front door or around the side of the house.
