Pack Your Bags – Toronto Hydro and TREB Make Moving a Little Easier
New tool offers online services 24 hours a day
Thousands of homes are sold each month across the GTA, therefore in the not so distant future, buyers in the city will be closing their deals and moving into their newly purchased homes. In an effort to make the moving process a little easier for the thousands of Torontonians moving each month, Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited (Toronto Hydro) has launched My TorontoHydroTM – a new online tool to help customers manage their accounts.
My TorontoHydro gives customers fast and secure access to bills, payment history, account details and more. Customers can perform account moves online, 24 hours-a-day from the comfort of their homes.
To better serve new and existing homeowners, Toronto Hydro has teamed up with TREB to create a newHomeowners Kit, which will provide REALTORS® and their clients with information about key programs and services available through Toronto Hydro. From annual coupons and heating and cooling incentives to the fridge and freezer pick-up program, the Homeowners Kit will be a go-to resource for REALTORS® and their clients.
My TorontoHydro online tool is available at www.torontohydro.com and the Homeowners Kit is also available through TorontoMLS® System and TREB’s public website www.TorontoRealEstateBoard.com under “Hot Consumer Topics/Homeownership.”
In 2011, Toronto Hydro received over 200,000 move requests. The majority of these requests were processed by phone (107,295) or by mail/fax (81,700). With My TorontoHydro, customers can now complete their move in minutes at their leisure – no forms to mail, no phone calls to make.
In addition to performing moves online, customers that register for My TorontoHydro can:
· Manage accounts wherever they are;
· Get account details immediately;
· See bills at a glance;
· Arrange for ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ payments; and
· Complete landlord requests for unit consumption records.
