Free Meter Box Repairs
Updated: Jul 12
Get your missing hinge pin or broken lock replaced, or even the entire box replaced.
When Installing EV charge points or carrying out other electrical repair work I often come across damaged meter boxes.
Many Domestic Network Operators (DNO's) provide meter box repairs free of charge. This includes Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) who look after most installations in the area covered by Newcroft Electrics.
This is not the same as the electricity supplier on your electricity bill, hey just supply the electricity and bill you. They do not own and operate the delivery network. The DNO is responsible for everything up to the meter, including the meter box, supply cable and fuse.
If you have one or more of these issues the repair work should be free of charge
Broken or missing hinge pin
Damaged wooden board inside the cabinet
Broken or missing door
Require complete new meter box.
Door wont shut
Water Getting in
Note, quite often they will ask you to supply the parts required for the repair
Details on SSEN services outside you house can be found here
