  1. Almost €800 To move a meter less than 90 centimetres is a disgrace. There is no estimate. They have four options and cannot give a quote for the actual work it take to move the meter. For example if you want to move the meter 10 meters which would involve a lot of work would cost just under €800 and if you wanted to move the meter a couple of feet it would cost you just under €800. Go figure
