Buying a shore house is fun but you can’t forget to set up your utilities before you move in.  First ask if the utilities are currently turned on.  If they are, then you should transfer the utilities instead of starting a new account.  This will save you and the seller some money.

Here is a list of our most used utility companies in South Jersey.  Most companies want you to go to their website to sign up – that seems to be the easiest way to transfer utilities from seller to buyer.  In addition, in certain shore towns such as Ocean City, you also need a public water company.  Below the utilities below you will find several water companies.
