Price increase letter.

Month, Day, Year

RE: Price Increase


Dear Mr. Jones,

Due to an increase in our fuel costs, effective Oct 1st, we will be increasing the price of our mowing service from $X per mowing to $Y per mowing.

In the past we have been able to absorb such costs as higher prices for gasoline, machine and vehicle maintenance. We are no longer able to do so.

Since our goal is to continue to provide you with the highest quality services, we believe this is our best course of action.

We hope that you’ll agree even with the new price, YOUR Lawn Care remains a great lawn care service provider.

If you have any questions about this matter or anything else, do not hesitate to contact me any time.


Your Truely,
Your Name

- Mowing
- Weeding
- Mulching
- Fertilization
- Lawn Construction
- Clean-ups
- Snow Removal

Sincerely,


"Your" Landscapes


Scott

Cancel Customer Letter

Dear Customer,

We are sorry, but due to extenuating circumstances we will no longer be able to provide our service to you. Please be advised that this letter serves as notice of discontinuation of services. We will continue to service your lawn for the duration of the next 30 days so that you may have time to locate a suitable replacement. If you are able to find a replacement prior to the completion of 30 days, kindly notify our office and we will discontinue service at that time.

Thank You,
