When should I notify Sky of my move?

It is recommended to notify Sky of your move at least two weeks before your moving date. This ensures that Sky gets you connected at your new home as close to your moving-in date so that you don’t have to worry about any broadband service.

Note: Before updating your address with Sky and booking your move, you’ll need to have cleared any outstanding balance on your account.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions about changing your address with Sky

Once I change my address with Sky, when will the changes take place?

As you will have to book an engineer, once you change your address with Sky, the procedure usually takes at least 10 working days. Any installation will depend on the availability of local Openreach engineers. But seeing the changes you made in the My Sky App only takes up to 24 hours.

Can I take my old phone number to my new address?

No, you can’t take your old phone number if you’re moving Sky Broadband and/or Talk services to your new address. You will be provided with a new number.

Why is it a good idea to change broadband providers when you move?

Switching your broadband provider when you move can be wise for many reasons. Some primary reasons are:

  • Cheaper rates: Now’s the time to compare the prices of your current broadband provider with potential providers in your new area.
  • Faster Internet Connection: Some broadband providers experience poor connection in certain areas for different reasons. You don’t want to be stuck in a long-term contract with a poor connection
  • Promotional Deals: Broadband providers typically give discounts to first-time users
  • Availability: Many broadband services are accessible in certain areas of the United Kingdom, so switching providers with the best coverage in your locality makes the most sense.

Are there any costs for Sky change of address?

The costs for Sky change of address depend on whether you’re a Sky VIP member or not. Sky VIP members do not need to pay an installation fee, while Sky Q customers will need to pay a charge. There might also be an activation fee to set up Sky Broadband at your new home. They’ll inform you about other costs when they book your move.

 

Conclusion

When wanting to transfer a Sky service, it’s important to notify the provider of your move on time. This gives Sky enough time to disconnect and install your existing connection at your new address. It also saves you from settling into your new home without broadband connection. With these guidelines on completing a change of address with Sky, you are assured of a comfortable move to your new address. In parallel, remember to take care of other changes of address, especially with the NHS!
