Yes! We make use of a service called EasyNuts that can assist our clients in choosing their providers and set up their utilities, internet and insurance.
New tenants are given a grave period during which they do not switch off the connections to the water, power and heating/gas, meaning you’ll still have running water, heating and electricity when you move in even if you haven’t registered with a service provider yet.
Many (if not all) service providers will require a Dutch IBAN account number when setting up your account.
Insurance providers will require a BSN number meaning that this can only be done once you’re in the country and have registered at the municipality (Gemeente).
Some internet providers can take a week or more to complete their installation.
