Well yesterday they turned up to move our supply from the old house to the new permanent meter box in a perimeter wall. The guy who was the team lead (two men) was properly miserable! Anyway I Ieft them to it as the sparky was there doing the connection our side (in boxes to the side).
My only input was a brief question which was:
WP: "Is this place 3 phase?"
Me: "No. single."
WP: "Well this is a three phase cable"
Me: Yes I know. Our drive is very, very long and I believe the previous owners had problems with voltage drop. Hence the cable."
WP: Oh OK. Hurrumph.
So that was that. I went about my busy day. 2 hours later they were gone (don't get me started on the cost of that 2 hours). so I open the meter box to look at my shinny new installation. See attached!
Just how shabby is that??? OK, so they couldn't bend the cable but really? They could have easily come up the back of the wall and in that way, it's all accessible. Obviously just couldn't be bothered to drill a hole! they didn't even attach the cable to the wall! OK, it will be stone clad in time but come on, its surely the basics?
Should I be concerned? I guess it's their box so their problem?
