Now, your phone is ringing or emails keep poppin up.
The best way to entertain your clients and earn their trust/attention is to make sure you know the container specs they need, where they want it and when they need it.
Client: Hi, do you have containers?
YOU: Good Day! Yes we do, may I know what city are you near and what size of container/s do you need?
Client: I'm near Denver. I need the high ones and it should be water tight.
YOU: Oh okay! We have 40' HC and 45' HC you can choose from, 45' HC is a bit longer but they are both 9' tall. Also wind and water tight would be the best condition if you just need it for storage.
Client: Nice, I just need a 40' long, would a wind water be ok if I ship it overseas?
YOU: Oh! Wind and water tights (WWT) are most dented and doesn't fit the standards of a shipping line. You should get a Cargo Worthy (CW), it's few hundred bucks higher than WWT's but I can assure you once you bring it to the port, you just need to re-certify so it can be loaded to a ship.
Client: Ok. How much and can you deliver at 80216?
YOU: Sure, no problem. Let me check with our depot and trucker.
(That's your que to check on us, the price for the container, delivery, and availability)
YOU: The container is $2,600 and delivery for 20miles is +$350, delivery will be next Tuesday because we are already fully booked until Monday. Should we secure the unit to you and the delivery day? (CLOSING THE DEAL LINES)
Client: Yes send the invoice to this email .....
