Utilities are an important consideration in any move. Because there are several options for telephone service, Internet and home-heating solutions, be sure to consider all of the alternatives before you make a selection. Also remember that utility connections can take anywhere from one week to one month to complete from the time you place the order. As a result, arrangements for utility connections should be made well in advance of your move to ensure you will have service when you need it.
