I spoke to a great colleague on the phone on Wednesday night who helped me set up an account after having some issues with my address already being used incorrectly on another account. I am having a self-install kit delivered to my family home on Tuesday which will then be ready for me to take to my new flat on Wednesday. I was told on the phone due to the issues I had during set up that an engineer would be able to come out to me on Wednesday to help me set up my wifi as I do not think it is set up ready for the box currently. I was wondering how I can book this with an engineer for Wednesday.
The person who set up my account on the phone automatically ordered me a self install quick start kit so that it could be delivered to my home address, I did tell him I needed an engineer but he let me know that I would be able to book an engineer slot within 24 hours after the kit arrived and the fees would be waived due to the issues I had setting up the account.
sounds like you have got a load of helpful BS - or put another way - agree with whatever the potential customer wants to get the order and i assume commission
as JB66 says above having booked a self install you should attempt the install - if it works great if not book a tech - as to waiting another day or two and hoping you can book one for wednesday - i dont think thats going to happen - you could ring again and change to an install if the system allows it - it may not
as to waiving fees - again thats maybe more tell you what you want to hear - if it was chat and you have it recorded then you can push but this all sounds like problems
best advice is wait for kit to arrive and attempt to install - why do you think its not going to work - if they have allowed self install then VM has been at the property before assuming you gae them the new address where the install is wanted
It is coming up on the system that my flat has already been set up for Virgin however I have searched high and low and not found the set up box so it definitely isn’t there as far as I’m aware. May ring the quick start team today.
start outside and look for the external wall box - 6" square ish usually on wall facing road or pavement - brown or grey usually - follow any cables that come from it and go inside - if there are non look inside opposite external box as they may just have drilled through wall - as said it may just be a cable rather than an internal wall box
if you find a cable you need one of these to attach the cable that came with the quick start kit
Thank you. An engineer is coming out to me on Wednesday anyway now as I managed to get through to the quickstart team. It’s a tricky one as the flat I’m was previously one big flat which has been split into two so it’s making things awkward with wether or not it is set up for Virgin yet as it has just gone under a massive refurbishment. Thank you for your help anyway
