Inquiry Letter Sample | Inquiry Letter Example
Inquiries for information about services or goods are received and sent in business all the time. When you write a routine letter of inquiry, you can follow these guidelines:

Ø  Write clearly and precisely what you want a catalogue, price list, quotation, sample, general information, etc.

Ø  Do not mention the price limit at which you want to buy a particular product. If you do so, the supplier may raise the quotation to the limit you state.

Ø  Suppliers usually state their terms of payment when they reply to your inquiry. So you need not ask for them unless you hope a special rate.

Ø  Try to keep your inquiry clear and concise as far as possible.

An inquiry letter must be acknowledged promptly as it means potential business. If you receive it from an established customer, reply to it with much appreciation. If you receive it from a prospective customer, reply to it saying that you are happy to receive it and state your hope of a lasting and friendly business relationship. Here are some examples of correspondence exchanged for inquiry.
