Re: Green Junction box removal request

Dear Katie

We would like our driveway front wall removed and driveway extended. However, there is VM small box just in a middle. Would it be possible to remove VM box or at least moved to the side and how much it would be? It is in 24 Woodbury Hill, Luton, LU2 7JP

Perhaps it would be free of charge once we would remove front wall and box would be standing in a middle of the pavement?

Please let me know your thoughts. 
Thank you 

Darius

it would not be free, you would be liable to pay the costs of the survey, and then the costs of moving should virgin agree to move it.

Re: Green Junction box removal request

certainly would not be free - a few hundred for them to come and look - from there they may quote you - thing 5 figures - if you remove the wall that will change nothing

Re: Green Junction box removal request

I will remove the wall anyway leaving box in a middle of the pavement. 
There are a lot of cars reversing and without a wall it is a big chance that box will be knocked down many times accidentally. 
I am hopeful that VM will be reasonable and as a goodwill moves box to the side where I as a goodwill would leave small part of the wall. 
Moving box just a few meters away won’t cost massive amounts but would be beneficial for both parties. Everyone are the winners and what could be better than that? 😉

Re: Green Junction box removal request

with respect you can have little concept of the work involved to move the box - i have no idea how many customers it feeds - each one will likely need a new cable - also depending on the box it could need a new fibre pull - at best it will need reconnection to any other boxes it feeds or feeds from

there will be no good will - any decision to move it will be on a cost as is basis - as a personal opinion i dont think you will get anywhere - damage if that happens could well be charged back to you - its on a public footpath and was placed there with the consent of your local council - they will not get involved 

so as i said forget moving for free - forget good will - think 5 figures if they even offer to move it - again my opinion is that they will simply say no

It opens with two fingers. Thought it should be easy to open for access...

Re: Green Junction box removal request

VM is only obliged to move a cabinet for health or safety reasons, so it's very unlikely to get moved even if you were prepared to shell out the thousands it would cost.
