Sample Cancel Service Letter
One of the most important skills you can develop is knowing
how to write a cancellation letter, and our sample account
cancellation letter will show you how.
In our modern competitive society, it is seldom a good idea
to stay with one service provider endlessly without good reason.
When you first sign a contract with a service provider, you
are often so pleased that the choice has been made, and the
work completed, that you make an unconscious decision to stay
with that provider until you are forced to change. Inertia
is an important factor, and we often don't change service
providers until we have to.
Before we show you how to write a cancellation letter with
our sample cancel service letter, there are some important
points you should consider.
It is vital that you should put your request for cancellation in
writing, even if the standard method suggested is by phone. In the
event of a query or dispute, any knowledge or record of your cancellation
phone call may be 'lost'. You should also check that you have met
your contractual requirements. If there is a minimum length of time
for the service contract to run, ensure you are past the earliest
closing date. It will also be difficult to cancel a service if you
still owe payments for the service.
In showing how to write a cancellation letter with our sample cancel
service letter, we have included some common elements that need
to be included, no matter what the service is. Our sample account
cancellation letter states the company or organization who provided
the service; your name, address, telephone number, email address
and current date; the service or account reference information,
and the date from which you want the service cancelled. The service
cancellation date can either be specified as a date in the future,
or 'with immediate effect'. We have provided a sample cancel service
letter showing how to write a cancellation letter below.
