Denver Utilities

Your guide to electric, gas, phone and cable service providers

Here are a few simple tips that might help the moving process once you get to Denver.  To start becoming acclimated to your new community, check out the Denver Relocation Guide and other community resources for fun things to do and places to go, as well as for practical information like school districts and voter registration locations.

Call ahead to have utilities connected at your new home the day before or the day of your scheduled move-in (resources for phone, Internet, cable, gas, electric and other utilities are listed below.)  Check to make sure the utilities have been connected, and follow up on any delays.  Make sure your phone is connected.  Ideally, you should have the phone company hook it up the day before you move in.

Most moving companies advise, that to prevent possible damage, televisions, stereos, computers, other electronic equipment and major appliances should not be used for 24 hours after delivery, allowing them time to adjust to room temperature.

Make sure you have payment on hand for your moving charges.  Unless other billing arrangements were made in advance (like with a new company if you’re relocating in a corporate move), most moving companies require payment upon delivery in cash, traveler’s checks, money order or cashier’s check.  Personal checks are usually not accepted.
