Full Service Removals & Disconnection of Meters
Full Service Gas & Electricity Meter Removals
If you have a gas or electricity meter you no longer need in your property, or business premises and would like to have it disconnected from the mains, you will need to call in a specialist to carry out the work on your behalf as this isn’t something that should be attempted by anybody not authorised to carry out the work.
Here at Crown Energy, our specialist meter team has many years of experience installing and disconnecting both gas and electricity meters and electricity supply. There are many reasons our customers have requested a electricity disconnection of their supplies, so we suggest you contact our friendly team to discuss your requirements. We can then assess your requirements and better understand and identify the reasons for the electricity disconnection of your gas and/or electricity meter and advise you on any further work that may be required as a result of the removal.
For instance, if you are developing a site that is being demolished or refurbished, Crown Energy can also provide full or part service removals. If you would like to learn more, contact us today on 0845 053 5454 and speak with one of our specialists.
Reasons for choosing a Meter Disconnections
Of course, there are many reasons for choosing this course of action for your property or business premises. But some of the more common (but not limited to) reasons our customers have come to us have been due to construction work on-site, needing to move a meter to a different area, as well as demolition of the property.
In the case of a demolition, it would be highly dangerous for the contractors, as well as the people and buildings nearby if the gas and electricity were not safely disconnected from the mains supply. In this case, the electricity or gas should be disconnected right up to the site border, to ensure there isn’t any risk of hitting live groundwork.
Once all identified electric and gas supplies have been cut-off, engineers will offer a location clear document to approve the safety of completing the redevelopment. A plot showing the meter location and where the gas is to be cut off should be provided so that we can issue you with a quotation.
The pipework that goes from your gas meter to your applications can similarly be detached by our Gas Safe Registered and GIRS qualified engineers.
Full and Part Service Removals
Before any full or part service removal and disconnection of a meter can be carried out, we will need to carry out a site investigation in order to properly assess the required work to be able to provide you with an accurate quotation. To learn more about our site investigations, please visit our dedicated Site Investigations page for more details.

Every job is different, but we aim to keep the procedure as quick and efficient as possible. The standard timescales from start to finish are around 4-6 weeks.
