Manned installation charge

I recently ordered the player TV bundle and received my first bill which shows the following charges:

Virgin media hub 3.0 manned installation - £0

Manned installation charge - £40

In the contract that I signed only the first charge was mentioned that is free.  However there was no mention of the £40 manned installation charge in the other items and charges section of the contract.  This is the first time virgin internet has been installed in the property and so self installation wasn't an available option as the cable had to be drilled through the walls into the house.

I talked to two different people on the live chat who were insistant the two charges are separate and that I should be paying the £40 manned installation charge despite me not having a choice of self installation.  Could someone confirm if this is the case?

Re: Manned installation charge

As far as I no, it shouldn't be the case

Unless the rules have changed the £40 is only charged where a customer has specifically declined a self install. Where self install is not an available for any reason, you shouldn't be charged for the manned install.

Re: Manned installation charge

Hi mvarma

I appreciate you getting in touch with us and welcome to the community forums.

I am sorry to hear there appears to have been an issue with this given what you have said.

For us to investigate this for you and as you have potentially had this emailed to you showing it should have been free can you please pop back to me on the PM I am sending to you that you can find on the top right so we can look into this further.

Many thanks.

Re: Manned installation charge

Please I have the same issue. I have been charged £40 when I placed my quick kit order from VM then I needed manned installation because I couldn't find any socket in the wall to connect my fibre.

Re: Manned installation charge

Hi omarfysal, welcome to the community forums.

 

What method did you use to place your order with us? Was it online, over the phone or in person with one of our sales representitives? Have you previously contacted us through other methods regarding this?

 

Thanks,

Tom_S

Re: Manned installation charge

Dear Tom,

First thank you for your quick reply.

I placed my order online. However, when I found there is no fibre socket inside the house and just cut at the end of the fibre broadband wire, I called VM customer service and they arranged manned installation day for me and the said it will be free and assure that.

However, I can see now £40 manned installation fees and called the customer service with no luck to solve this problem.

Kind regards,

Omar
