Metal outside box

Our box on outside of house which is on pavement gets vandalised by people going home from pub. Is it possible to have it replaced with metal box.

Re: Metal outside box

you could put comething on it yourself but vm do not use metal omiboxes.

If its being damaged you should report it to the police as well

Re: Metal outside box

So Virgin Media can't help people with houses that are on pavements. IE no front gardens. Good to know as may help others take this into account when considering Virgin cable.

Re: Metal outside box

It's a solution we need not a police guard every time the two local pubs empty at closing time. Takes one kick to burst box. Don't think police will catch offenders to reimburse householders.

Re: Metal outside box

The problem is the equipment supplied is not up to the job as far as I'm concerned. When renewal comes up I can look for alternative suppliers who can give a solution. As well as informing all the neighbours of this.

Hi for your own peace of mind, it's not to difficult to go on line and order a smallish metal box and fit it yourself, or if for any reason you can't fit it yourself maybe a friendly neighbour may help.Regards Micky
