White Gables: Setting up your new Home in Summerville

Getting Set-Up
Before you move, take the time to research the neighborhood and the various service providers you will need to contact. It would be a terrible end to the day of a long move to not have water or power in the new home and it happens to many new homeowners. By taking the time to check and double check on these items, as well as where the local services are, will give you an advantage during the move. Chances are you've passed the municipal service centers on one of your drives to the new area, without even thinking twice about their locations but knowing the location of the hospitals, police stations, fire stations, and other city services can help you safe from the very first night in your new Summerville, SC home. Because you bought home owner's insurance, you know where the fire hydrants, police stations, and even where the fire station is, in relation to your new home. Summerville has excellent city services and that can help keep your overall insurance expenses low, as well as keep you healthy and safe.


Utilities in the New House
One of the largest utility providers in South Carolina is SCE&G and they are the service providers for the White Gables community and the Summerville area. They are based in Columbia, SC but have remote locations throughout the Lowcountry. With efficient online services, BillPay by phone and online, outage reporting that can be done 24/7, you can feel at ease knowing your utilities are handled by the largest and most efficient company in the state. Before you move, be sure to call and set up the initial meter reading and service after that. They will perform a basic credit check and some customers may require a deposit to turn on service but if you have had service in another city, chances are you will not. After you've turned on service at your new Summerville, don't neglect to select a shut-off date with your current electric company so you are not liable for the utility bill after you've moved on. You have the option to mail in your utility payment, pay it online, pay by phone, or set up auto-pay so you never miss a payment. There are several billing options as well to choose from that will suit your needs, whatever they may be, Crescent Homes can guide you with more information.
