if it was installed the drive wouldn;t of been there. VM will normally not move them as it would take down everyone's connection that go though the box. And it will also cost way more then people would expect as it would need all the cables repulling.
VM wouldn't of been able to install the box in front of a drive so someone converted the drive after it was installed and most likey found out the cost and work to move the box and gave up.
I think you are right in that they did the driveway and then enquired about the VM box, however they just want to sell and not deal with it which obviously means if we want to be able to use the drive then we will have to! Hence why trying to find out costs etc.

Here is the box, not smack bang in the middle but could do with being moved to the right.

Do I need a dropped kerb? If you intend to drive a vehicle over the footway into your driveway off a highway, then you will need a dropped kerb.

You may become liable from a collision with a pedestrian You may become liable for damage to the footway You may face considerable costs as a result of damage to any utility apparatus under the footwa
