Kansas has several cable providers for you to choose from. Depending on where you’ll be living in Kansas, you could find TV, Internet, and phone service available from Comcast, Charter, Cox, Sparklight, Mediacom, or Suddenlink. SmartMove is ready to help you find the cable providers available in your new area and help you get your new Internet, TV, and phone service up and running before you begin unpacking.
If your current cable provider is also operating in the area of Kansas where you’ll be relocating, you can count on SmartMove to seamlessly transfer your service. In many cases, you’ll be able to unplug your equipment and take it with you when you move. Your new service will be transferred and turned on, waiting for you in your new home when you arrive. This could save you serious time and hassle, instead of waiting for a service appointment at your new home in Kansas.
If you’re using SmartMove to set up service with a new provider, it’s still far better to do it in advance of the move and not to have to deal with it while you’re unpacking and taking care of all the aspects of setting up your new home.

Family plans with several lines and pooled data allotment are available from some providers. Others offer unlimited data plans, which can be beneficial if you use a lot of data per month.

Moving yourself is a fantastic alternative whether you want to save money on your Kansas relocation or simply appreciate the feeling of having complete control over your stuff from point A to point B. Before deciding to migrate, consider the following factors:
- Do you want your family and friends to assist you with the moving of boxes and furniture?
- Are you, your friends, or your family physically able to relocate?
- What contingency preparations do you have in place in case of inclement weather or an accident?
You can always employ local movers to assist you at the beginning and/or end of your journey.
Keep your receipts for your tax preparer whether you relocate yourself or hire a professional moving company. Check with your company to see if they would cover your relocation charges if you are relocating for a job.
After reading our Moving to California guide, you should have all of the tools and knowledge you need to make the transfer — and your arrival — as seamless as possible.
