You must be present at the time of service for the water and power connections. The water will be turned on at the main line but not to your apartment, also the main breaker may need switching and/or a pilot light may need to be lit.
We will charge $75 for a service call with a possible 48-hour completion time if required to come out after your service has begun due to the time of the year.
Some Helpful Hints
Ask the water and power company what day the service will be discontinued with the previous residents of the apartment.
Confirm the need to not be present with the water and power company to avoid any service charges as stated above.
