    May need to move both of my meters as a result of an extension.

    Is it a case of separate company for each i.e. national grid and western power, or are there companies that will move both together as I suspect that will be cheaper?

    I'm based in West Bromwich, West Midlands.

    Just move the meters, or move the service intakes as well?

    You may find yourself dealing with 4 companies, not two.

    The red blocks indicate where they both are. One of the reasons I need to move them is because I am moving the door from the side of the house to the front. So initially I am thinking they will go where the blue block is but as i will later be added a porch this may be a problem, so green is the alternative which will then be inside the garage.
