Move your Electricity Meter

We know all too well the problems caused when a electric meter is in the way or not in an ideal location. To get this work done requires a licensed electricity supplier as it’s actually against the law to do so yourself.

Here at GEC, we pride ourselves on offering businesses and homeowners across the UK a comprehensive, hassle-free service to cater for all of your electric meter requirements.

Whether you’re working on a large-scale project, such as a commercial development or if you’re getting ready to move into your new home, we can coordinate the move or relocation of your electric meters, as you require whilst also ensuring they’re kept within a budget and time frame that suits you.

From start to finish, we can oversee every aspect of moving or relocating an electric meter

If you would like to move your electric meter more than 3 meters, the mains supply may also need to be adjusted depending where it’s connected from the street. The mains supply may also need to be changed if you need the meter relocating to another wall or different room.

We will provide a team of expert meter engineers to oversee the project throughout, to ensure an efficient and professional relocation, which includes:

Can I move my own electric meter?

We would strongly advise anyone not to move their own electricity meter unless they are a fully qualified electrician and have the knowledge and expertise on how to perform this task safely.

The process involves temporarily disconnecting and capping the main supply before physically moving the meter and making the necessary adjustments to reconnecting the electricity supply once the meter is secured in the new location.

How much does it cost to move an electricity meter?

If the reason for moving your meter is that of a cosmetic nature rather than due to you having difficulty reading your meter or performing building work that could potentially damage the meter, then your electricity provider will 9 times out of 10 decline your request and charge you for the work.

There is a range of factors that need to be considered before we can provide a price for a meter move. These factors include:

You can contact the dedicated team at GEC and they can provide you with an accurate costing after these factors have been determined.

What Our Customers Say

Professional from start to finish. I had made numerous calls to SSE my supplier for meter to be moved and never got a call back or a proper answer. One phone call to GEC and it was all sorted, organised and completed within the time frame given. Would certainly recommend them


An excellent experience with the GEC – after months of trying, and failing, to get quotes or site visits for new utilities connections, these guys managed in weeks what I’d failed to achieve in months – gas, water and electricity quotes.


I was having huge problems getting a meter installed with my energy provider then I found GEC and they have been responsive and delivered what they said they would do, when they said they would do it. Customer service is prompt (no interminable wait times) and friendly.
