Subject: Complaint regarding furniture delivery


This is with reference to the delivery of the seven pieces of furniture delivered by your company on 29 February, 2017 against the full payment of 120,000. We appreciate the timely delivery but we are sorry to inform you that we will not be maintaining any transactions with your showroom. The delivered furniture is in a very sorry condition. The cushion padding of the sofa is deeply torn for a stretch of three feet and is irreparable. The polishing of the chairs suffered terrible damage.

We have returned the complete delivery by the same truck after assessing the repairable damage. Kindly repay the amount received by you at the earliest.

Yours sincerely

Subject: Request to replace/repair home theatre


This is to bring to your notice that the home theatre SN 7879, which I purchased from your showroom on 30 October 2015 with bill number RYE24/15, has just started malfunctioning. On the first day its performance was ground-breaking but before anyone of us knew, on the second day, its display went erratic and sound cracked. Although we have been trying your customer care, they hang up the phone after having made me stay on line for twenty minutes in the least.

It was with great expectations and trust that I chose your showroom about which I heard from advertisements and friends. Honestly speaking, I am greatly disappointed for having made a choice as yours. Kindly look into the matter personally and send your representatives to my residence on any date and at any time of your convenience at the earliest.

Yours truly
Navneet Singh
