How do I check status of an engineer visit?

Popular Poster
Message 7 of 7

Sorry if this isn't the right forum - I couldn't find any suitable forum sections (or, at least, I couldn't find any sections within which I could post!)


I'm due an engineer visit, and I thought it was supposed to be today (Saturday, 2nd July).  I gather I was supposed to receive some sort of message (SMS?  email?) to confirm a 3-hour timeslot - but as I write this at ~1:30pm I still have no confirmation of a time slot.  From the searching I've done, I learned that on a Saturday engineers may visit any time until 4pm - it follows that my time slot must therefore be 1pm-4pm assuming that the engineer is actually due today and I've not messed up my dates.


In the absence of any info to confirm a visit and timeslot, I tried to check the status through "My Account", but I can't see where.  A quick Google search suggests I should go to "My Account", then click "Home" and I should be able to check "order status" and check/confirm/reschedule/etc. the engineer visit.  The problem is that while I can get to My Account, I can't see anywhere that says "Home" so can't find the bit where I would check my order status.


Anyone know how to check the status of an engineer visit so I can see if I've got the right date?

If this is an engineer visit for a repair/fault then you should be able to track this in Service Centre.

Thanks for the update 🙂 I think it's possible to track this in Service Centre, however I will ask and will post back to confirm.

Hi @Chris-TalkTalk,


Engineer arrived today 😁  I clearly got my dates mixed up, but the pressure is of now so all's good.


The question still stands though: is there a way to check the status of an engineer visit, so I know for next time... ?

Hi gutt3d,


How are you getting on, do you still need assistance?

Hi @Skynet_TX,


No-one turned up today - I must have got the wrong day/date, but no idea how to check 😕  This was to install a Master Socket.

Hi @gutt3d,


Assuming the engineer never turned up, what was the engineer meant to be coming for ?, i.e. the installation of a new service that you have ordered, or to fix / change something on an existing installation.
