New Orleans, LA • Orleans Parish

New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.

How To Move To New Orleans

If you are moving to New Orleans for the first time or just moving within the city, it’s a good idea to prepare your utility accounts. You want to avoid suffering in the Louisiana heat without A/C for example. Weeks before getting the keys to your new home, you should already have a good undersanding of the utlity providers in the New Orleans area that will be servicing your home.

Typical New Orleans Utilities

Your property may not need every one of these utilities listed. Some of the utilities provided within New Orleans are combined. Depending on your service area, your water, trash collection and sewer may be combined for example. The list of typical New Orleans utilities typically breaks down into these categories:

  • Gas
  • Electricity
  • Water
  • Sewer
  • Trash Collection
  • Recycling Collection
  • Telephone (Lan Line)
  • Internet Service
  • Cable/Satellite TV
  • Alarm Systems/Home Security
  • US Postal Delivery
  • Lawn Care/Maintenance

Ideally, basic utilities should be set up before you move into your new home. The choice of providers is limited in New Orleans, but the process, although straightforward, can take up to two weeks, especially if you’re establishing new accounts. The process may involve application processing, credit checks, putting down a deposit, meter readings, and so on. It’s a good idea to contact all utility providers at least two weeks before the move-in date.

New Service Setup / Transfer Steps & Tips

Depending on your home’s location within New Orleans, what new utility accounts you need to establish and which ones can be transferred, common steps for a new occupants may include:

  • Find out what you need to set up. Your property might have a water pump or a septic system, for instance. Beyond the basics like water, gas, and electricity, you might want to consider other services such as pest extermination or lawn care.
  • Ask the seller about expected/average amounts. That way, you’ll recognize a red flag if the amount is too high or too low. The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans, in particular, has come under scrutiny for its meter-reading mistakes, unrecorded payments, and overbilling. We suggest that you carefully monitor these accounts.
  • Make a list of providers in the area. Some will be limited to the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans for water and sewage, and Entergy for electricity. Others — for home security alarms, phone, Internet, and TV — will have more than one option. The seller or your New Orleans Realtor might also be a good resource for recommendations.
  • Pay your current utility bills and shut off service. Ideally, your new home will have all utilities turned on the day of your move, or a day or two prior, and your old home will have them turned off a day or two after your move date (allowing for moving delays and returns). Shutting off service also involves paying the balance and, where applicable, getting your deposit back or getting the last meter reading.

New Orleans Utility Rersources

Every utility company has its own policy and process for opening new accounts or transferring services. A typical process includes an application and, sometimes, a returnable deposit or credit check. Here are some local resources:
