Gas cooker bayonet disconnect/reconnect - DIY or not?

Moving house in the next few weeks, and was wondering whether to book a gas
bloke to disconnect the cooker here and re-connect it in the new place, or
whether it was a simple/safe job for me to do myself?

I'd rather not have to add yet another couple of appointments to the moving
day, so any thoughts would be very welcome.

ps, I asked the removal company but they don't have anyone qualified to do
it.

It's a staight forward DIY job. The bayonet connectors are there to make it
so.

Sometimes they take a bit of force to get them on and off.

Some bayonet fittings for cookers are different sizes, so there is no
guarantee that the one at the old place will be the same size at the new
place.

Knowing my luck, that's bound to be the case :)

Thanks guys, that's one less person I'll have to wait for here and at the
new place...
