Move a Gas Meter

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

Relocate your gas meter to a different location

We can coordinate the installation and disconnections of one or more gas meters, as you require whilst also ensuring they’re kept within a budget and time frame that suits you.

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 gas meter requirements.

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

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.
