When I came across to Virgin, I only needed Broadband and phone but the chap I spoke to on the phone said it was easier taking the package with all 3 as the discount was greater. He suppressed the TV box being sent out at the time.
Fast-forward over 12 months and I want to start using the TV services and leave Sky so I’ve spoken to 4 different people in customer services (on the phone to the 5th now) to ask them if they can send me a box and each time I get told yes we’ll do that but nothing happens. At one stage I got a text from Yodel to say I was going to get a delivery but this didn’t turn up and a call to customer services basically said just wait.
I reached out to social media team who said to post here but was so annoyed I left it a few weeks. How can one company make it so hard to access the services you’re paying for? Appreciate things are tough with COVID but I’ve now spent about 2-3 hours across 5 phone calls and still no joy.
fuming after my 5th call. After trying to book for an engineer visit (as that’s ‘only way it can be done’), was told that’s not possible because of the pandemic. After raising a complaint ‘170421632’ spoke to a very unhelpful and aggressive manager who said nothing can be done whilst pandemic restrictions are in place and said it’s my fault for not taking the box at the start of the contract even though the chap I spoke to said this could be done later.
I’ve never experienced such poor treatment and tempted to cancel all my services with Virgin.
I was told but the customer service representative at the time that I could get a box sent to me after without any problems.
last time I checked, the postal and delivery system is still functioning during COVID so this has nothing to do with it. I can set up the box on my own. The issue is the Virgin media system shows I have a box so they can’t issue me with one.
A case of falling back on ‘computer says no’ rather than genuinely trying to fix an issue for a customer.
