Can anyone advise on moving a gas meter. The minimum distance we need it moved is 1m (unless it has to go outside these days). I am very unhappy with the way companies like Transco charge about £1100 for doing this type of work. My meter is very old (probably about £40 years and still has a mechanical coin box (long since disabled) so is not up to current safety spec and would be changed by any supplier FOC. Is there any way it can be moved by switching supplier as part of the deal. Private contractors are quoting me extortionate minimum charges with several months lead time.
Any comments welcome
