(A customer has been arranging with a shipping agent to send a large box overseas. This is the last part of the conversation.)
A OK right. Now obviously insurance is an important thing to consider and our companies are able to offer very good rates in a number of different all-inclusive packages.
B Sorry, could you explain a bit more?
A Yes, sorry, um. There’s really three rates according to quality of insurance cover – there’s the highest comprehensive cover which is Premium rate, then there’s standard rate and then there’s economy rate. That one will only cover the cost of the contents second hand.
B Oh I’ve been stung before with economy insurance so I’ll go for the highest.
A Mh’hm and can I just check would you want home delivery or to a local depot or would you want to pick it up at the nearest port?
B The port’d be fine – I’ve got transport that end.
A Fine and will you be paying by credit card?
B Can I pay by cheque?
