About Us

Collective Utility Management is a family driven company established in 2007 to help landlords and management companies cope with their metering needs.
All work is done by our own technicians (no contractors) and we strive to provide service excellence in an environment were service is sadly lacking.

We are based in the south of Johannesburg and service the greater Gauteng and Vaal Triangle.

Our motto as company:
We are big enough to accommodate you, yet small enough to appreciate you.
