Refused to use them. We had the connection of electricity, internet and phone arranged by ourselves in about 15 minutes on the mobile phone. Getting Aust Post redirection took about a day to get finished.

We also refused to use them.

  1. I already had arranged all the utility connections by myself
  2. I knew since it was a “free” service, they would go with the provider who gives them the maximum commission.

I think the real estate agent gets a commission from the connection services for the referral. When I told the agent that I don’t need their services, he told me that they would give me call anyway and tell them that I don’t need their service.
