Posted on 15 May 11:49 AM by Frederick Wambu
Two weeks ago I ordered a shipment of books through dealdirect.co.ke. I did not receive the shipment, which was scheduled for 20 April. I called the shipping company, and the representative said that she has a record of someone accepting the package, but the signature is not legible.

I wonder if I should just forget about it and reorder books from a different company or spend more time trying to resolve the matter.

Thursday, October 2
Dear Mr. Gillis,
Thank you for sending me your signed contract. It was good to meet with you last week and to hear about your vision for the woodworking business you hope to create.
Based on the features you want your woodshop to have, I have some solid ideas with which to move forward. From our conversation, I also understand that you have some cost concerns. I will certainly be conscious of this when working on the design plans and will be sure to use materials that are both structurally sound and economical. You can expect some preliminary sketches within the next two weeks. Once you have looked them over, let’s set a time to meet again, at which point any adjustments can be made and finalized.
I have already noted where your large pieces of machinery will be located. However, please let me know if you change your mind about anything, as I will need to figure out where the high-powered electrical cutlets should be installed. For the purpose of safety, I am required to ensure that all large pieces of equipment such as table saws have their own dedicated circuits.
I am looking forward to collaborating with you to turn your ideas into reality.
