In News 0 comments

If you are moving to a new house, you may face a problem, what to do with your EV charger? Can you move it too or do you have to buy a new one? Don't worry, we are going to take you through everything you need to know about home electric vehicle chargers and moving houses in this article.

Can you take your charger to your new house?

The short answer is yes. It's possible to take the charger with you if you're moving to a new house, but not the electrical cabling. Regarding the wiring and materials left behind after the uninstallation, all wiring should remain in place but be made safe for future owners' charger installation. Make sure you do research at your new residence for the installation. This research should include the set-up of your new home, whether it has 3-phase power for a fast charger or the required cabling route for the installation. Of course, you should hire a professional electrician or an accredited installer to complete the process. 

Since you are already accustomed to the charger, relocating it means you know how it works and do not have to get used to a new unit. Using your existing charger is environmentally friendly as it reduces waste.

Downside of taking your charger with you

One of the downsides to the removal and re-installation of your charger would be that it could impact your EV charger's warranty. It's best to check your charger's terms before making the final decision. 

The cost of uninstalling and relocating an EV charger can be significant if additional electrical work or cabling is needed. Furthermore, the process involves coordinating with installers, scheduling site surveys, and managing the logistics of transporting the charger to the new location.
