Info we need in advance Before we exchange your meter, please let us know: the address for where the current meter is who our engineer should speak to on the day and their phone number/email address if the meter’s easily accessible – if it’s more than two metres above the ground – if we need a key/code to access it if there are any appliances above the meter, such as overhead heaters that’ll need to be re-lit if we need any more authorisation, or if there are any site security procedures we’ll need to be aware of any other special requirements to be done before we visit, e.g. work permits, method statements, risk assessments if there’s parking available for a transit-sized vehicle or public parking nearby if you’re aware of any asbestos onsite. Please also email us a photo of the meter with the Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) in the subject line. If it’s a gas meter, we’ll also need a photo of the pipework.
