Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to enquire whether the following items are available in your store for purchase:

1. PVC glands – 10nos

2. Insulated ring lugs – 10nos

3. Letterman Ferrule printer 101- 1no

4. Letterman Ink ribbon (compatible with the printer mentioned above) – 3 rolls

I am particularly interested to know whether the last two items are available in your store. If they aren’t, would it be possible to order directly from the supplier, so that I can come over and collect them after making full payment? Kindly tell me how long does it take for the items to reach your store? Also, once the items arrive in your store, for how long can you hold them?

As I am currently out of town, I cannot come to your store immediately. I will be back next week and then I can come and collect them.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
