Can a qualified gas fitter move my gas meter
3 Answers from MyBuilder Gas Engineers
I think the gas meter belongs to your utility provider, so it is their responsibility to move the meter.
The gas fitter can do any alterations after the meter.

A qualified gas fitter can only move your gas meter as long as he is employed by your local gas supplier.If he is an independant gas worker and is not contracted through your gas supplier ,then he cannot.You can always check with your local gas supplier.Take time to ask for their gas licence number,their name and find out your gas supplier and telephone them and check

I would firstly contact your service provider and ask them if they can move the meter,you may however need to get National Grid to move your gas meter as there will probably be work that needs doing regarding the service supply coming into the property.After that has been done,you can get any Gas Safe registered to do any alterations after the meter has been refitted.
