If you have enough spare cable going to the service fuse carrier could you not move it your self the 1.5m?

This varies from DNO to DNO.

Have you not called them?

From my experiance some dno's will charge a small fortune to move a supply, the reason?

some extra cable or a brand new connection may be required.

If the supply is pme there is some flexability in the cable, and providing enough slack is present moving it will not cause any problems.

However old corroded TNS systems are not very flexible, and undue strain can be placed on the final connections that over time may become unstable.

It is a case of your risk assesment, however I would rather leave any main supply movement to be the responsibility of the dno than to risk the potential later problems.

I think it all depends what mood they are in or who looks at job. I have a customer quoted 16k for putting new suppy in, single phase of pole 50 mtr away. Another customer paid 4k to have pole moved and supply put underground.

Matt, can I ask why it has to be moved?

Just your luck who turns up to look at it. I had 1 moved and 'luckily' enough supply was an old pyro and way to wee for the job. Called 'em up, guy came out, said cable was too wee and needed changed for safety.

"What's the chances of getting it moved to under the stairs?"

Nae bother... done it for free!!
