If you are unable to provide a social security card, we can accept a formal document that has your full

your social security number matches your name. Choosing to do this will be an extra $3.00 charge.

The deposit amount depends on what services are provided at the address for which you are inquiring.

Our business hours are Monday-Friday from 8AM to 5PM. We do ask if you are coming in to set up new
utilities and would like it to be connected into your name the same day that you come in by 3:30 to get
all the paperwork processed.
