Top 5 Moving FAQs

I want to disconnect my energy supply. Why do I need a visual inspection of my meter?

Visual inspections are only required if you live in Queensland. The distributor (who looks after the poles, wires and gas pipes in your area) requires a visual inspection of your meter to ensure that your meter is safe.

I'm moving house. How do I connect my energy?

Connecting your energy to your new home is easy. Whether you're an existing customer or want to switch to us, we can help take the stress out of moving.

Our Power-on Guarantee and online move tracker means that you'll have peace of mind, the day you move in.

When do exit fees apply?

Exit fees apply if you are in a fixed term contract with AGL and you cancel this contract whilst still in the contract length. If you take AGL with you to your new address, this exit fee may be waived.

I’ve just transferred to AGL. Why is there nothing to see in My Account?

After you sign up to AGL for gas or electricity, it can take as long as three months for your service to transfer across to us. During that time, we won't have any usage information to show you in My Account.

We'll contact you once your transfer is complete, so you can log in and see it all for the first time.

Do I need to be at my property when my electricity supply is connected?

Only if you live in Queensland.

However, no matter which state you live in, please remember to switch off your electricity supply at the meter using the main switch before we can make the connection. This may happen as early as 7am on your requested date.
