Before you begin your application to disconnect your gas supply, you'll need to consider the following:
- Use our postcode checker to find out if we deliver gas to your area. If you want to find out more about your gas supply, the FindMySupplier website is able to give you more information.
- Make sure you have the full address, postcode and phone number of the property.
- More than one property: If your application is for more than one property, please use our commercial application form.
- Make sure someone will be available on the day to give us access to carry out the work.
- Have any consent permit you might need, such as the owner of the land, your local authority if work has to be carried out on the road, or planning permission if your building is listed or on a conservation site.
- Make sure there are no obstructions such as scaffolding in place.
- Get a quick quote: Use our online quote estimate before you start.
We'll provide you with a full, upfront quote before we start work to disconnect your supply. Once you've accepted your quote and we have received full payment, we're usually able to start work in about six to eight weeks.
This varies from £400 to £1200, depending on where you are (inside or outside the M25, or in Scotland).
