Moving can be stressful, the lengthy to-do list can seem never ending. At Home Telecom we have a solution, in partnership with a whole host of lettings agents we can take some of that pain away. So you may be wondering, what are our top tips for when you are moving home?

Well, we will start with, yes, you’ve guessed it, the service that we just can’t live without. Broadband.

1) Arranging your Broadband.
Broadband is important to everyone, and it is now part of everyone’s day to day life. Which is why at Home Telecom we believe you should have your broadband set up and ready as soon as you move in so you can enjoy your new home to the fullest straight away with no setbacks. We currently have a wait time of around two weeks for your broadband to be installed so it is important to give us a call at 01403 216133 as soon as you can to ensure your broadband is set up for you the same day you move into your new home. We offer all sorts of deals and speeds, so whether you work from home, are a gamer, or simply just use your broadband for streaming Netflix we have got you covered with our wide variety of broadband packages.

2) Learn how to pack your devices
TVs and devices are important to everyone. The first thing you want to do after a long day of moving is sit down and relax, you want to be able to sit down switch on your devices such as the tv, your gaming console, your laptop, and escape your day-to-day stresses. But if your devices are damaged from your move what will you do? This is why you need to make sure you package your devices correctly to minimise the chances of having a damaged TV or Xbox. Make sure to double box your devices, this means putting the box which contains your device into another box that has been padded with packing paper. But what if after all that effort of packaging your TV and devices you realise you haven’t set up a TV package and can’t watch your favourite show on Netflix or Sky. This is why at Home Telecom not only can you set up your council tax and water, broadband and energy all in one call you can also get the best deals on our TV sky packages as well. So, you can sit back relax and watch your favourite show once you have completed your move.

3) Schedule your utilities for your new home
As soon as your move in dates are finalized, it is vital that you contact utility providers to schedule service at your property. There is nothing worse than arriving to your new home after a long day of moving and having no water, electricity, broadband, or heating. We know that sorting out your utilities is a boring process and having to call different providers just makes it worse. Which is why at Home Telecom we provide all your utilities in one spot in a smooth and easy process, leaving your stress at a minimum. Call us today at 01403 216133 to sort out your council tax and water, broadband and your energy.

4) Book in your moving services early
Booking your moving services is one of the main keys to securing an easy and stress-free move. So don’t wait around, the longer you leave it the higher the prices may become, or even worse you may not be able to find movers with availability. Meaning you will have to move all your belongings by yourself, and nobody wants to do that.

5) Create a checklist
When moving into a new property you need to be prepared and make sure you don’t miss anything out or leave anything behind. Creating a checklist will help to guide you through the moving process. Therefore, it is important you create a moving checklist to ensure you do not forget anything. Your checklist should include things such as, hiring a team of movers to help you move your belongings, notify your employer, your bank, the DVLA, your local council etc of your change in address, arrange your utility services for your new home, such as council tax and water, broadband, and energy. Home Telecom can provide all your utilities for your new home in just one phone call, meaning you don’t have to worry about contacting multiple different providers to arrange your utilities.

6) Use your move as an opportunity to clear out
We know it can be hard to let go of things you’ve had for a while, but by donating things to charity it not only makes you feel good within yourself, but it also helps you when packing your belongings as you won’t have all that clutter to pack. At Home Telecom charity is very important to us and we do a lot of work with charities to raise awareness and get donations. We are currently working with Oscars wish which is a charity that provide comfort and support to parents and siblings following the loss of a baby or babies before during or shortly after birth. We are currently raising money and awareness for this charity and donations are appreciated. Just go to

7) Check out the local food options and night life
There is nothing worse than finally sitting down after a long day of moving, scrolling on just eat or Deliveroo and realising your nearest Chinese take away is an hour away and not available for delivery! Then after this, you decide that you’ve earnt a bit of you time, so you go to check what there is to do in your local area, whether it is a night out on the town in clubs and bars, or just a quiet night out to the cinema, it is important to know what your options are so you can make an informed decision on if you want to move to the area.

8) Add your own touch onto your new home, as fast as possible.
Moving into a new house can feel cold and empty, which is why it is so important to make your house a home. You want to feel comfortable and warm in your home to enjoy your first night in your new property. You can do this by hanging up family pictures on your walls from your previous property, add plants to give your home some vibrancy, etc.

And there you have it, our very own check list, of everything that we believe is truly important to make sure you do before moving in to your new home, to ensure that you make the process as smooth, stress free and as effortless as possible. Remember, we can help with any of your utility services that you may need within your home, you just have to give us a call.
