Online Utility Connection

By
Real Estate Agent with Trademark Realty Group of Palm Coast

When purchasing a new house, utility connection and/or transfers can be a job in and of itself.  It may even be a chore just to find out what utility companies are in the area.  There are a few online sources you can use to make you utility part of your move a lot easier.  These online services not only give you the utility company name, many of them even allow you to compare services and provide the contact information directly to those companies.  Some of the online services include:

  1. http://www.whitefence.com/
  2. http://www.connectutilities.com/
  3. http://www.moveutilities.com/
  4. Or simply do a Google search for "Online Utility Connection"

When it comes to Public Works types of services (i.e. water, trash, etc.), many municipal websites are offering online hookup or at the minimum information ad direction to establishing service.  It is my recommendation to write a simple checklist of what services you need and want before hand, and cross them off as you set them up.  It's that easy.

I just tried all 3 of those websites and didn't get a single correct utility service.  It might be because of our rural area, but I suggest everyone does a few "test runs" on this before they use them.

Brandi,

I agree.  These companies may not service all areas.  I have checked a few areas (in state and out-of-state) and got the correct information.  Thank you for pointing that out though.
