If you want to take Virgin Media to your new home, you must first understand if you can take your supply to that postcode. It could be the case that Virgin can’t service your new home move.

When moving home though, it’s the best time to consider your options when it comes to broadband. It’s a well-kept secret that you get access to some of of the best offers on the market at the point of your home move. This is because it’s the point companies try their hardest to ‘acquire you’.

With that in mind, the best first step is to check if you could either be paying less for the same service or get an enhanced package at the same price. 

To get your home move underway and explore your options you can use our moving home platform. You can see broadband options for your new place and saves hours of time updating your address across all of your accounts (HMRC, DVLA, NHS. Boots Advantage Card, Tesco Clubcard etc…).

Remember If you’re certain you don’t want to explore your options, if it would be helpful to you, you can still update your address across all of your accounts.

The process of doing your Virgin Media home move with Virgin is as follows:

Step 1: Share your details with Virgin

  • o Your account number (found on your bill or ebill)
  • o Your current/old and new address
  • o Your contact number
  • o Your moving out date (so Virgin Media know when to disconnect)
  • o Your preferred installation date (Virgin Media will confirm this date nearer the time)
  •  

Step 2: Make your choice: self-start or technician?

  • o Ask the owners or tenants at your new place if they have Virgin’s services (or have had previously). If that’s the case, you can actually self-install with the Quickstart service. They will ask your a few eligibility questions
  • o Alternatively, you can arrange a Virgin Media Technician to come out and install it for you at a charge of £40. There is lots of info on how to self-install, so you can save yourself the money
  •  

Step 3: Move your services

  • o When you move, take your equipment with you
  • o However, Virgin may ask you to leave the equipment at your previous address. If you’re not asked  to, follow the standard Virgin Media moving home procedure and take it to your new property
  •  

Step 4: You’re all done

  • o Review your order and select if you would like to upgrade your Virgin package or keep it as it is
  • o Then, complete your set-up
  • o Finally, you’ll be all set to use your services.
