Your TalkTalk engineer appointment

No ratings

Our engineers can help you with anything from installing your services to fixing a fault. 

  • Appointments are available between 7am-6pm on weekdays and 7am-4pm on Saturdays.
  • We'll give you a 2-3 hour timeslot for your appointment; your engineer can arrive at any time within this timeslot.
  • If we find a fault outside of your property, we may need to arrange a separate visit from an Openreach engineer.

We've introduced some precautionary measures for our TalkTalk engineers in response to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which may affect your appointment. More information.


For more information about your appointment, take a look at our FAQs.

Your appointment may be chargeable depending on the type of fault you have. Head over to engineer charges for more information.

 

You can reschedule your engineer appointment in a few simple steps in My Account.

  1. Login to My Account
  2. Select Home in the toolbar
  3. Select Track order in the dropdown menu
  4. Next to your booked appointment, select the Change Appointment button
  5. Choose a new date and time that suits you

The cut off time for cancelling or rearranging your appointment is 12 noon the day before your appointment. If you have a Monday booking, you'll need to amend it by 12 noon on Saturday.

If you amend your booking after 12 noon the day before your visit (or Saturday for a Monday booking) there may be a late booking charge of £30.

 

In the unlikely event that your engineer doesn’t arrive, please double-check your appointment date.

Remember, your engineer can arrive at any time within your allocated time slot, so please make sure you've allowed enough time for them to arrive. They could also be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances.

  • The engineer charge will be £40 (including VAT) for the visit if any of the equipment is damaged by yourself. For more information, please see our list of engineer charges
