You asked the bank for a new chequebook two weeks ago but you haven’t received anything. Write a letter to the manager complaining about the service. Say how and when you ordered the chequebook. Tell them when you need the chequebook by and ask the manager to send it to you before this date.
I am writing to you to express my disappointment with the poor service I have received from your bank recently and in particular with regards to the chequebook that I ordered two weeks ago that has still not arrived.
I run a small business that uses many different suppliers and need to write many cheques to ensure that I pay them on time and do not damage the good relationships I have with them. After realising that I would need a new chequebook on the 12th of April I went to the Bayswater branch of the Bank of Southern England to request a new chequebook and was told that it should arrive within five working days. As of the 26th of April it still has not arrived and I have now used up all the remaining cheques in my current book.
I would be most grateful if you could ensure that I receive a new chequebook no later than the 30th of April because that is when many of my bills fall due,
