In the week before you move into your new place you need to organize for the phone, electricity and gas to be connected, so that you are all set up when you move in. A lot of people get so busy organizing themselves to leave their old place that they forget about all the things they have to organize in their new place.
There is nothing worse than moving in and not being able to turn on the lights or call your friends because you forgot to get the electricity or the phone connected. Before you get the telephone connected, find out where the existing connections are, and decide whether or not you want your phones to go there.
If you do it is just a matter of paying a security deposit and organizing for the particular phone company to activate the line. If you want new lines put in, or old ones relocated, the process is a bit more complex—and more expensive. Organizing to get your electricity connected is a fairly simple process—just call the electricity company.
