Sample Apology Letter to Customer for Damaged Defective Goods

One of the qualities of being a good company is to serve the customers in the best possible ways including providing great quality products or services, good logistics - making sure deliveries are made on time, good maintenance services in a timely manner, addressing the customer grievances adequately, etc.

Apology Letter from Company to Customer for Complaint on GoodsWhen a customer complains about the product either because of receiving damaged product or wrong products or products missing, etc., then the company will have to provide the customers with the replacements or right products as ordered.

But this effort from the company side is just not enough to satisfy a disappointed customer. Something more needs to be done by the company viz. providing a complimentary gift along with the originally ordered products, sending an apology letter to the customer, in some cases extra monetary compensations are also given.

An apology letter must be carefully drafted so that nowhere in it the customer is blamed for the damage of goods or other issues, which might obviously hurt his feelings and he may take the matter to court or other legal forums for additional compensation.
