Moving is a daunting task! It can be exciting and hectic all at the same time! Establishing utilities can be one of the more overwhelming jobs involved in moving, but it is definitely an important job that has to be done.
Before you move into your new residence, call your local utility companies to set up an appointment to establish your service. Each utility including electric, natural gas, telephone, and water may have different inspection and installation procedures that need to be completed before your service can begin. Since it may take several days to schedule an installation appointment and for any construction to be completed, it is recommended that you call in advance to ensure that your residence will be equipped with utility service when you are ready for the service to begin.
Most utility companies allow customers to sign up for service by phone or online. Keep in mind that you may need to provide the company with information such as your name, driver’s license number, service address, mailing address, phone number, social security number, and employment information.
When you move, remember to call your existing utility companies to terminate service at your present address. Many times, electric and natural gas companies will use an estimate based on your previous usage to determine the final bill. To ensure an accurate final bill, you can request the company do a final meter reading. Another option is to read the meter yourself and call in the reading to the utility company. You can contact your utility company or access their Web site for more information about how to read your meter.

Guilford County Utilties
Water and Sewer Service
Summerfield & Oakridge do not have any public water or sewer services. There are many neighborhoods that have “community well systems” that are owned and/or operated by private companies. The most common owner of these systems is Aqua North Carolina, but please check with your Home Owners’ Association. Those individuals that are on private wells and everyone on septic may contact Guilford County Health Department for information regarding testing and servicing these systems.
