VM grey junction box outside of property

Hi All,

 

We have a grey VM cable box outside our house, currently preventing us from creating a drive. Is there away of getting this moved. If so what are the costs involved?

Re: VM grey junction box outside of property

you will need t pay VM about £300 to look at it and get a report of what is needed.

The costs to you will normally be upwards of 10K and that's even if VM agrees to move it and that's unlikely.

Moving a box even a foot is not an easy job. All the cables will then need to be rerun back to ALL the homes it services and to any other slave boxes, it might feed.
Also any ducting to the box will need moving to the new box location.
Everyone connected to the box will be without service while hte work is done.

For that reason VM are most likey and within there rights to just say no

Also you would need permission from the local authorities to put in a dropped kerb etc.

Re: VM grey junction box outside of property

Hi Claire,

 

Welcome to our Community Help Forum 🙂

 

Thank you for your post regarding the removal of a Virgin Media grey junction box outside of your property.

 

Firstly, you will need to get in touch with your local council regarding approval for the grey box to be moved.

 

It costs £200 for our engineer to do an initial assessment of the work, then an average of £10,000 to move the box, if approved.

 

Thanks,

 

Serena
