I am moving into new home shortly and I'm looking at whether I should switch to a different ISP.

I'm currently with TCL Cable on a Phone + 20GB 10Mbps plan (~$130). I've been with them since late 2003 and I'm pretty happy with the service so far.

The area I'm moving to does have TCL Cable and is on the Telecom Fibre network. Having said that, are there any other ISP's that offer more bang for the buck at around the same price and that are as reliable, (especially in the evening?)

For around your budget of $130 per month you could a Snap Home Line + Snap Pro 60g broadband package ($126.95). Snap gets great reviews here and from experience is an exceptional ISP to have in Christchurch. Evening speeds from my experience are consistent, occasionally things do slow down a bit but a quick call to the awesome local help desk usually fixes that. Of course you may not get similar performance to the 10mbps plan from Telstra if you are far away from the Exchange or Cabinet.
