Appointment Etiquette

Appointment Etiquette
In our busy lives, making appointments is essential to staying organized. I’m sure most people have some sort of calendar where they keep important events; birthdays, doctor’s appointments, dinner with your parents, etc… you get the point. Keeping these appointments is also important, as time is a precious commodity that cannot be replaced once it has been wasted, some companies use software similar to mobile service management software to keep appointments with customers.

People who are always skipping appointments or showing up late lose the respect of others. And it isn’t always about keeping the appointments, either, but just being mature and letting whomever it is know that you won’t be able to make it. Today, communication is fast and reliable, and all it takes if a phone call to the other party to enable you both to utilize your time better. Even if the appointment may not seem important to you, that time may be precious to someone else, and so you should cancel properly if you are not able to make it. Don’t think it so unimportant that it does not merit a notice or apology.

If you do have to cancel an appointment, you should do so in a sincere and apologetic manner. When dealing with office appointments, you should try to cancel twenty-four hours in advance if at all possible. Sometimes it can’t be helped, but when other appointments could be scheduled in your place, it is polite to give as much warning as possible.

Appointments are an important part of anyone’s life. Whether you are swamped with work or just use your calendar to remember your dentist appointments, keeping track of what you have to do is a must. No one can keep every appointment they make in life, but it’s polite and respectful to let the person know if you won’t be there.

This is a courtesy announcement from A-1 Cleaning Service. When making an appointment, please make sure that the water and electricity are on, and cancel 24 hours in advance if you know you won’t be able to make it. Thank you for your business, and we hope to hear from you!
