Connecting your gas to your new home

connectnow helps Aussie home movers connect their gas every day. We pride ourselves on providing you with market leading gas suppliers to choose from and making it easy for you to have the gas flowing from the moment you step through the front door.

Gas is just one of the many must-haves we can arrange at your new home. You can make sure your gas is connected the day you move in with connectnow and all in the same phone call or web form, as the other home moving services, too.

How much notice do I need to give?

You should start connecting your gas at least 3 business days before you move in.

In Australia your gas will often be on at your new property when you move in, however, there are instances where the gas has been disconnected. Therefore, you are best to get on to the task of connecting your gas by allowing at least 3 business days before you move in to make the request.

If your property is a new home, the gas can take up to 20 days to get connected so make sure you check with your builder that the gas meter is installed or will be installed by the time you move in.

How does it work?

Firstly we check when you need your gas connected. Connections must occur on a weekday as gas companies may not operate on weekends.

Then we make sure we have all the necessary details for your new home such as your new street address, and the location of your gas meter. Occasionally we might ask you for your MIRN which is a unique number typically written on the gas meter at your new property.

We then organise your connection with your chosen gas provider.
