I am doing some work on my house and planning to knock through a wall in kitchen. Unfortunately the electricity metre is on the wall that needs to be chocked down. It needs to be moved to the opposite wall about a meter. With the gas meter once the knock through happens it will be in the middle of the room, so need to move it about 1.5m. Has any one done moving of utility metres before..? Can OVO do this for me..?

Thanks for your question. It'll be interesting to see what other users experience has been with relocating meters.
From the sounds of it, you'll need to move both the meter and the mains supply to the meter.
If this is the case, we'll be able to move the meter but your District Network Operator (DNO) for electric and the National Grid for gas, will need to move the mains supply. We usually arrange this so that National Grid or the DNO move the mains in the morning, our engineers then come round in the afternoon to reposition the meter.
Let me know if you have anymore questions on this!
