Home move

No ratings

We know you'll be wanting to get online as quickly as possible once you're in your new house, that's why we've made this process really easy.

To make sure everything's ready for you at your new home, we need a minimum of 14 days notice (the more the better, but no more than 3 months). There's no charge for moving your services. When you're ready just go to My Account, start a chat on our website, or contact us we will need two pieces of information from you:

Your new address

Your moving date

Moving home       Moving day     Settling in


Moving home

Can I keep my phone number?

Yes, if you’re moving within the same telephone exchange area then it may be possible to take your current phone number. You may not be able to transfer your number if you are moving outside of your local exchange area. If you move to another exchange, you’ll be given a new number. We'll let you know if you can keep your number when you book your move with us.


What if I'm moving to a newly built or converted home?

This can sometimes cause a delay as the cabling may be needed to be put in place. Openreach, who install new lines for us and other providers, will contact us and we'll assign you a case manager to keep you up to date on progress. The work needed can vary greatly, and if permission is needed from a local authority this can cause further delays.


Do I need an engineer?

When you book your move, we'll be able to tell you if you need an engineer appointment. If you know you'll want help setting up your service, contact us.


Do I need to sign a new contract?

If you're currently on one of our Fixed Price Plans you'll be given the option to keep your existing contract or sign a new one. If you're on our legacy packages we will be updating you on our new Fixed Low Price plans.


What broadband speeds will I get in my new home?

We'll be able to estimate this when you book your move.


 Moving day 

On the day, you'll need to pack up all your TalkTalk equipment to take with you and set up when you get there. Here's a checklist to help:

Your router

YouView box (If you have one) 

Microfilters (If you use them)

All connecting cables


When will my service be working?

When you book in your move, we'll give you a provisional 'go live' date. If you need a new line and this will delay things we'll let you know. You can watch TalkTalk TV as soon as your broadband is live and your TV box is connected.


How do I get my TV box set up for me?

There's an installation guide, but if you change your mind about doing it yourself, you can contact us to book an engineer visit. It's free for the first 10 days and £65 after that.

 Settling in

Once you're set up everything should continue to work smoothly, but there's always the unexpected. So if you come across any problems after your moving day we're here to help.

No socket in your new property?
