Jenny: Hello, may I speak to Mr. Adams?
Mr. Adams: This is Mr. Adams speaking.
Jenny: Hi, Mr. Adams. My name is Jenny Shields and I am calling from Walker’s Oil Service. How are you today?
Mr. Adams: I’m fine, thanks.
Jenny: As you may or may not know, Walker Oil is one of the oldest and best-known oil companies in Massachusetts. It has already been on the market for 10 years with a reputation for high-quality oil, excellent maintenance service, and timely delivery.
Mr. Adams: That’s great! And what is the purpose of your call?
Jenny: We are looking for new customers. Mr. Adams, could you tell me whether you use oil, gas, or electric heat?
Mr. Adams: We use oil heat but my wife wants to change it for gas heat.
Jenny: I don’t think it’s a good idea! Oil burners are fuel-efficient and they are workhorses. However, they do need regular maintenance to prevent costly fuel bills. Could you please tell me if you have had your burner inspected or cleaned in the last six months?
Mr. Adams: I don’t really recall the last time we had the burner checked. Maybe last year.
Jenny: I would like one of our service people to stop by so that you can take advantage of our free inspection and cleaning. Is Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. a convenient time for you?
Mr. Adams: You know, my wife and I are on a fixed income and we really can’t afford to explore trial offers at this time.
Jenny: I completely understand, Mr. Adams. Walker Oil is known for delivering efficient and affordable solutions for home heating. In addition, you will also save a lot of money each year on your fuel bills with our free annual cleaning and inspection service.
Mr. Adams: My burner seems to be working just fine.
Jenny: Mr. Adams, do you remember how cold it was last winter? Fuel prices skyrocketed and many people had burners that broke down during the coldest weeks of the year. With our free annual inspections, you never have to worry about breakdowns during those fierce cold spells.
Mr. Adams: Okay, well, I suppose I could see you on Wednesday.
Jenny: Mr. Adams, this offer will allow you to have peace of mind this winter knowing that you took the time to have your burner inspected and cleaned, thus reducing your overall fuel costs. Plus you get a free oil fill-up when you sign up for our regular oil delivery service. Mr. Adams, I have you down for Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Have a pleasant evening. Good-bye.
Mr. Adams: Bye.
