We understand the difficulty that arises when a gas meter is not in an ideal location when completing renovation works or extending your property.

As a homeowner, you cannot move a gas meter yourself, as it’s against the law, and of course, very dangerous to undertake yourself. This can and should only be carried out by a licensed gas supplier.

Moving your gas meter usually involves switching off the gas source to your property. For safety reasons, we cut into the pipeline two meters away from your site and then divert it to the new position. If the inner copper pipeline is within two meters of your gas meter’s new location, you can apply for your meter to be refitted and relinked to the inner copper pipeline

We will provide a team of talented technicians to ensure you get your gas meter moved efficiently and without delay. Call us today on 0800 069 8290 to speak to one of our knowledgeable team about getting your meter moved.

How long does it take to move a gas meter?

It completely depends on the complexity of the job as each one is unique. The standard timescales for preparation to completion of the works are between 4 and 8 weeks. We aim to keep the process of preparation to labour to a minimum.


How much will gas meter relocation cost?

Unfortunately, this could be an expensive job as there are no governments funds towards gas meter relocation, the cost for moving gas meter up to 5m start at £650.
