    Just spent best part of an hour trying to find out how to get my gas meter moved. 4 different numbers (and associated menus and greensleeves etc muzak), I got some div who told me that he couldn't tell me how much it would cost, as he couldn't discuss prices over the phone, but he could send me a form which would detail price range for different amounts of movement (i.e. less than 2 metres, 2-3 metres, more than 3 metres, etc), and that after getting payment, they had up to 20 working days to give us a date for agreement for the work to be done! :?::biggrin::tongue:
    Jesus H!!!!

    Just do it yourself man! A hacksaw, a hose, a lot of gaffer tape and a lighter to check for leaks afterwards...:tongue:


    Would it prove easier to leave the meter where it is, and move the house?

    I'm very tempted! I could agree with myself a date when I think I might do the work! Mind you, not sure if I can specify morning or afternoon, until the afternoon of the date when I'm meant to be doing the work, but am held up at "another job" Sheeesh! :tongue::?:

    A friend wanted to move GM a few years back in order to have a new fitted kitchen. Would of cost a fortune. I persuaded him to have a built in cupboard for the meter and site the fridge over the top. Job done

    Moving house seems the logical solution, if you do it in less than 20 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!
