Turn Services On & Off
How can location opening and closing services benefit my organization?
Utility companies can be difficult to reach, and when you do get in touch with them, they require very specific information. When Cost Control Associates handles your location openings and closings, you save yourself the time and effort of managing all the details on your own.
We contact the utility companies to initiate or terminate services and make sure the details are properly handled. We can often negotiate or eliminate deposit requirements. We also have extensive knowledge of utility rate structures so that you get the best rate available in your situation. Cost Control Associates makes sure these important activities happen on time, at the optimal rate and according to your plan.
