No Business Succeeds without Excellent Customer Service Millions of dollars spent on advertising cannot duplicate the results of satisfied customers who not only buy from you again, but refer others to you. Furthermore, no amount of advertising can compensate for unhappy customers who not only never return to your business, but also actively discourage everyone they know from buying your product.
Consequently, excellent customer service is critical to competing effectively in any business. In fact, according to Dimensional Research figures report on Nextivia, those surveyed said excellent customer service was their number one reason for placing their trust in a company.
In addition, slighted customers do not keep their customer service grievances to themselves. AE found men, on average, tell twenty-one people about their poor customer service. Women, on the other hand, share their customer service complaints to an average of ten people.

We will honor that trust by our continued commitment to providing the best metal buildings in the industry— and excellent customer service. It is just that simple.

Thanks:-) Reply3 months 23 days agoBeth TerryShare On TwitterShare On GoogleI understand why you would want to get it out of the cardboard box to preserve it from deterioration. If I were in your shoes, I think I would post an ad on Nextdoor or Craigslist asking if anyone had a plastic bin they wanted to get rid of.
There are so many useful durable plastic items in existence already, and as long as they are not in contact with food or susceptible to breaking down into the environment, finding uses for them could be more environmentally-friendly than investing in brand new plastic-free items.
