I have been waiting for 6 hours on the message us to try and inform Virgin that I am moving house. I am not taking the service with me as it's unavailable at my new address (and the service is so dreadful I wouldn't want to anyway!)
Their customer service is woefully inadequate.
I have cancelled my direct debit as a starter. But what on earth are you supposed to do if you cannot contact them?
I have tried phoning and it cuts you off because it's says they are too busy.
I have completed a complaints form which they say will take up to 28 days to respond.
Has anyone got any suggestions at all about what to do about this?
I think this definitely needs to be raised with Ofcom. I don't believe a Company should have a system in place where you cannot email, contact by phone, write and where the only option is to wait for hours and hours on their message us service only for them not to answer.
I have taken screen shots of the "message us" so at least I have evidence of how long I have been waiting.
Although VM customer service is appalling, cancelling the direct debit isn't recommended. They will just pass it on to a debt collector and it will impact your credit file. It will just create problems for you, possibly years down the line.
