    Your Alterations Journey

    Here are the steps that will take you through the alterations process. Don't worry, we’ll stay in touch along the way to make sure it's going smoothly and you’re happy with everything.

    • Apply

      Either fill in our online application form, or give us a call and we'll work through your application with you.


    • Initial preparation

      You may need to discuss your alteration plans with your existing supplier who will advise if you need to change your meter. You will also need to let us know if you are digging your own excavations.


    • Receive quote and make payment

      You will have up to 90 days to send in your signed acceptance and pay for the works. When we receive your acceptance, we will contact you to agree the start date.


    • Site survey

      We'll arrange to meet you on-site to discuss your requirements and the options that might be available.


    • Planning works

      On average, it takes 6-8 weeks from payment to carry out your works.


    • Site preparation

      We will give you a call the week before works are due to start to make sure everything is ready.


    • Works complete

      Once we're finished, we'll re-turf, re-seed any grassed areas and replant any flower beds if we've disturbed them. You will need to undertake any internal decorative works.


    Information you'll need

    Before you apply for a quote, please make sure you have the following information to hand:

    • Full address of the property where the work is needed.
    • Property owner's full name and telephone number.
    • Distance of external pipework needed to move the gas meter from its current position to its new position.
    • Distance of internal pipework needed to reconnect the gas boiler to the gas meter's new position (if you wish for us to reconnect the gas meter for you).
    • Relevant HMRC VAT relief declaration.

    How much will it cost and how long will it take?

    We have a handy, quick and simple pricing tool to give you an indicative cost of a standard Service Alteration in your area. This will also give you the current work delivery timescales (lead time).

    We will always offer you the earliest date available, if local traffic management or highway restrictions apply in your area we will let you know as this may increase the lead time before we start work.

    Please use our Indicative Pricing Tool to get an indicative cost for standard domestic connections work in your area and the current work delivery timescale [lead time].
