Unsure about how to switch utilities to your new home in Zionsville, Indiana? Fortunately, utility companies in the area know how to make your new move seamless, with an array of customer service and online payment services.
Zionsville is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic suburbs of Indianapolis, growing in size from 5,000 to more than 25,000 residents just since the 1990s. It’s a popular choice for commuters, as it is one of the closest suburbs to Indianapolis, and home to excellent schools, a charming downtown shopping and cultural district, and solid local infrastructure.
Steps to Take
With all the tasks that come with organizing your move, it’s easy to let your utility sign ups wait until the last minute. But to ensure you have the service you need on the day you need it, it is best to call your utilities as soon as you know your move date, even if this is a month in advance. This will give them time to properly notify the billing department and get your shut off day scheduled in the system.
When moving out of your old home, it is generally a good idea to just go ahead and pay for an extra day or two of utility coverage when you sign off your accounts and pay your last bill. This will help cover things if there is a lag between when you move out your possessions and when the next owner moves in. If you have plans to go back and clean up, or go back to retrieve a forgotten item, you’ll have power on to cover your needs.
Conversely, it is also a good idea, if it is possible, to get your power transferred over to your name as soon as you take possession of the keys to your new house. In Zionsville, Duke Energy is the electric provider and Vectren provides natural gas, if your home has gas heat. In addition to calling these companies, contact the owner of the home you may be purchasing to ensure everyone understands who is paying for what, and for how long. This is especially important in the wintertime! Nothing kills that “new house” excitement like busted pipes!
Water, Trash, Phone, Cable
Because the Indianapolis area is a landlocked area with few bodies of water, the area provides water to its residents through an extensive system of wells. So, be advised…most people in this rather upscale area consider having a water softener a necessity, not a luxury. It is a good idea to have one for your own comfort, as well as the resale value of your home. Though Zionsville is its own municipality, it is close enough to Indianapolis that residents get their water from the Indianapolis Water Company.
Trash collection is once a week in Zionsville, and your pickup day will vary based on your address. Recycling is every other week, on the same day of the week your trash is picked up.
