realestate.com.au welcomes EnergyAustralia to Connection Services

Connection Services by realestate.com.au, an online solution helping movers to easily connect with utilities and telecommunications providers, has now welcomed EnergyAustralia to its list of energy providers.

EnergyAustralia joins AGL and Origin as utilities providers on Connection Services, giving Australian movers more choice than ever before.

Movers that select EnergyAustralia for Electricity or Gas will have their services supplied under the ‘Basic Home Plan’ which offers no lock in contracts.

In just two years, realestate.com.au’s Connection Services has connected more than 35,000 utilities, providing movers with a simple, stress free solution to what can be a complex and time consuming process.

Tenants and homebuyers can access Connection Services via www.realestate.com.au/connect, where the mover or their real estate agent can process utility orders for services to be active on the next business day, providing the order is placed before 2pm AEDT. For both movers and real estate agents there is no cost to use Connection Services.

realestate.com.au also provides tenants with peace of mind, thanks to a ‘power on guarantee’, which ensures electricity will be on for move-in day1.

Andrew Rechtman, REA Group Executive General Manager – Residential, commented: “Connection Services provides a seamless experience for both movers and property managers, and it’s fantastic to welcome EnergyAustralia to our list of service providers.

“As the only connections provider that fully integrates into 1form, Australia’s number one online tenancy application system, Connection Services now provides even more choice for movers looking for a simple, stress free solution to connecting utilities.”

Kim Clarke, EnergyAustralia Chief Customer Officer, commented: “Partnering with realestate.com.au and its online Connection Services platform helps make for a smoother move from one house to another. In just a few clicks customers can plan for the power to be on the moment they step foot inside. They can then get on with unpacking and enjoying their new home. We know moves don’t always go to plan but having the lights come on is one thing customers shouldn’t have to worry about.”
