Good afternoon.  Please could you send me a link to arrange this same service?  I have been unable to find a way to arrange this through the Customer Services number.

Hi karimhawkins 

There would be a £25 non fault call out charge (it used to be £99) to do the work you require.

You should call  150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faults) 

When calling Faults ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and book the tech for you.

Or wait a day or two and a member of the Forum Team should pick this up for you and arrange a tech visit.

We need to move our second TV box from an upstairs bedroom to the newly converted garage.  I have read here that we can book an engineer to do this at a cost of £25, however I have been unable to get through to do so using the methods posted.  Faults does not put you in a queue if you fail to select an option - it cuts you off.  The online Chat function is not working on my PC nor my mobile.

Is there some other way to do this, or could someone from Virgin maybe send me a link to book as I've seen in other posts?  Thanks!

I posted a reply on another thread but it never appeared there. I therefore assumed the thread had been closed to further comments, so started a new thread.

Thank you.  I'll reply now

Hello karimhawkins and thanks for getting in touch.  I can arrange the appointment from here but would need to confirm a few details via a private message, that I will drop over in a moment. Please look out for the private message and we can get started.
Kind Regards,
