Hi, has anybody ever had to pay to have their Virgin Router moved into another room, and how much did it cost? I would like to move mine to another room, as I no longer use that one, except for a storage. I did phone Virgin, and the lady said it would cost £99, is this right? All I would need is a new cable fitted into another room, I could transfer everything else myself, once everything is organised.
£99 is a pretty good cost for a home visit and work to be completed.
What would an electrician cost to come and change a socket. Oe run a new cable? about the same i would guess.
So lets assume your job takes the engineer 2 hours (or has to allow 2 hours) that they can't book in other jobs
Lets then assume the engineer is on Minimum wage (he will not be)
so thats 8.91*2=17.82 for the engineers time lets say we allow 1 hour travel to and from the job. thats another 8.91 so total so far £26.73
26.72 Engineers time 5.00 cost of cable 10 cost towards the cost of the tools used 10 cost towards fual to get to the job and back Public liability insurace. Training Van insurance cost of the van and upkeep
