Never received pre-paid package

Hello,

We moved out from our flat on 10/05/2021. I was expecting a pre-paid package to arrive at our new address since I requested it in the end of June. It has been almost a month now, and I have not received anything despite contacting Virgin 5 times. Every time, I received empty promises like "I assure you the package will arrive in the coming week". Now I am an impending bill of 40 pounds and I receive threatening emails about it every week - which feels like harassment after everything I've gone through to return the equipment. Some agents have been downright rude, or extremely confusing, implying that I was lying about not receiving the package.

I will be leaving the UK indefinitely in 7 days, and I just cannot be transporting the whole equipment everywhere I go. I will not accept to be charged for something I have no control over, and I am tired of spending hours on the phone/on the chatline to receive no help whatsoever. I'm just so disappointed in Virgin and how they treat loyal customers who genuinely care about doing things right and sending the livebox back.

Re: Never received pre-paid package

Hi Rapha16,

Sorry to see you are having problems with equipment returns.

Have you checked <<< This link >>>  to make sure your equipment needs returning?

If the kit doesn't need returning there's also a link on the same page detailing local recycling points.

Returns packaging is usually sent out 10 days after the cancellation completes.

You can request returns packaging using <<< this link >>>  and also choose to have it send to another address if necessary.

Re: Never received pre-paid package

Hi there Rapha16,

Sorry to hear you have not received this.

I have located your account and can see that it has been sent and that someone was arranged to collect this as well? Did this happen?

Did you provide a forwarding address? If so it would be sent there

Zoie

Re: Never received pre-paid package

Hi Zoie,

Thanks for the reply. We moved from the first address after a couple of days. I was informed someone would try to collect it and therefore replied to all the messages and emails I got with our updated address. I also registered for a new pre-paid package to be delivered at the right address on the website. Since then, I have heard nothing and the package has not been delivered. I'm leaving in 3 days and I am lost about what can be done at this point. I've contacted Virgin again and the agents have assured me (once again) that the package would arrive in the next few days, but this has been going on for more than a month now.

Best,

Raphaelle

Re: Never received pre-paid package

Hello @Rapha16,

 

Thank you for giving us this information.

 

Please can you let us know if this packaging does not turn up? We can note the account and see what else we can do, I can see that we have located your account, I can also see that this is on the way to you.

 

I hope this is okay for now.

 

Thanks,

Hayley
