House move Quick start kit

Just moved house and Virgin supplied a kit to get me started. This was no use at all. Had to return to previous property and collect cable from there, only trouble is the cables are to long. I need to shorten TV and Broadband cable be can't buy the crimped connections anywhere. I need 6, can anyone help as the cabling looks a mess.

You might find you have service issues with the longer cables if there's a significant difference in length - the signal strength at the end of the cable is tuned by the tech conducting the installation and is fairly sensitive to the length of cable.
