A home setup service offered by many agents to tenants and buyers has raised a further £4 million from investors to grow the business.
Just Move In, which helps people time, hassle and money during the home move process, counts Hamptons, Openrent, and Pickfords among its customers.
The significant new investment is follow-on funding lead by Simon Rogerson founder of the sustainable energy giant Octopus Group and and John Browett, the former CEO of Dixons – and now Just Move In Chairman.
Other investors include Longbrook Ventures, which has backed banking disruptor Monzo, and Love Ventures which has backed another banking challenger, Revolut.
Just Move In gives customers a platform to manage a wide range of services, from setting up the broadband and informing the council of the new address, to recommending removals and storage companies, supported by ‘Move Specialists’.

I am confident that with this team’s passion and hunger, they will build on the impressive traction already achieved to date and deliver an exceptional outcome for all.”
