Slingshot’s seven day moving house guarantee

Slingshot’s seven day moving house guarantee

If you are moving house, Slingshot is guaranteeing your internet will be ready to go by the time you move in.

Because let’s face it, when you’re up to your neck in boxes, and lugging fridges and washing machines around, the last thing you want to think about is whether your Broadband has been connected.

Under the company’s new 7 Day Moving House Guarantee, all existing and new customers have to do is give seven days notice that they are moving and Slingshot will guarantee their Broadband is up and running at the new address.

And if it’s not, then the price you pay for your monthly base plan will be free for the first two months in your new home*.

Slingshot GM Taryn Hamilton says many peoples’ experience of moving house has been spoiled by long delays getting their internet connected and the endless excuses some company’s offer for it not working.

“It shouldn’t be like that, especially because Broadband is such a fundamental part of peoples’ lives these days. It should be an easy transition and really, it should just happen.

“This guarantee is all about easing the hassle of moving house, because it’s stressful enough as it is. And besides, just imagine not being able to order pizza online or find out where the nearest bottle store is on Google maps after a long, hard day moving furniture and unpacking boxes.”

The new guarantee is open to existing customers and those wanting to join Slingshot if they are moving address.

The 7 Day Moving House Guarantee is another example of Slingshot’s commitment to customer service and testament to its standing as the best performing broadband provider in New Zealand. Earlier this year the company won the “Most Satisfied Customers” award in a survey by consumer ratings organisation Canstar Blue.

As well as its market leading broadband prices, including its $89 Unlimited plan, Slingshot has a range of innovative products such as Global Mode, Rollover Data and an online storage association with MEGA which adds significant value to its customers.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
