Customer Question

I have just purchased and old home with not so great wiring...
I Would like to install a new panel in a more central location.
can I install a new main panel as a sub panel and move circuits over one by one (current runs are longer than they need to be to reach new location) and then just use the existing main as the main disconnect?
