We are due to move into our rental on Monday and requested that a company called Direct Connect contact us re: utility providers. I have just taken the call from the company and they were wanting to sign us up to AGL. I basically said that I needed to do some more research and shop around to find tarriffs/rates etc.
From what I understood from the call we need to give a provider 3 working days to connect and a set up charge was quoted (AGL) of 40AUD for the electricity and 38AUD for the gas (Connection fees)
Does this sound right? Anyone out there willing to share who they are with? We need to make a decision over the next 24 hours in terms of who we are to go with?
In terms of our house we will be living in a small 3 bed courtyard home.
Any advice will be massively appreciated.
