In recent years startups have turned their attention to what’s known as “home setup services.” This is where utilities and moving-in are all aggregated into one package that is managed digitally, (hopefully), making two whole moving home process a lot easier and a lot less stressful.

Updater in the U.S. launched over 10 years ago and is managing a decent percentage of American home moves. It’s also raised $467.5 million to date. Others include and MovingHub, which emerged from New Zealand and just launched in the U.K.

Home setup service startup Just Move In — which covers both sales and rentals — launched in the U.K. but has quickly made gains as it attacked the market in a thoroughly holistic manner.

Using the platform, a mover can manage council, water, sewerage, energy and broadband in a single environment (not going out to third-party sites), and it’s also adding insurance and removals imminently, as well as integrating its service via API into the journey(s) of conveyancing firms, banks and other kinds of fintechs. It even includes removals and storage company recommendations. See what I mean by holistic?

The U.K.-based startup has now raised a new funding round totaling $5 million (£4 million) led by Longbrook Ventures and Love Ventures. Also participating was Mountside Ventures, alongside a crowdfunding round with follow-on investments from angels Simon Rogerson and Chris Hulatt, the two co-founders of Octopus Group. John Browett, the former CEO of Dixons — and now Just Move In chairman — has also invested.

Just Move In now counts U.K. property giants Hamptons, Openrent and Pickfords among its clients.
