Listening task
A:Good morning. I'm phoning to enquire about your office shelving system...code number SS007.
B:Oh yes, what would you like to know?
A:Well. I'd like to check on the dimensions first-make sure that they'll fit. First of all, how wide are they?
B:Just a moment, sir, I'll get the specifications... you asked about the width... yes, the standard unit is 3.5 meters wide.
A:And the height?
B:They're 2 meters high with flexible positions for the shelves.
A:How many shelves can actually be fitted?
B:Really as many as you like, but normally five.
A:I see. I need to know how much they stick out-in other words, how deep are they?
B:They're 30 centimeters deep.
A:Thanks, that's the dimensions. Now, what about delivery?
B:Well, it depends how far you are from our warehouse.
A:We're about ten miles from the center.
B:I see-well, that's in our free delivery area, so there'll be no extra charge for delivery.
A:Good. Actually, what I meant was how long does it take after I place an order?
B:I see, sir. We guarantee delivery within two weeks.
A:Good. Well, we're interested in ten of your standard units for a suite of offices. How much do you charge?
B:Well, the unit cost is ?98 but in view of the size of the order, we can offer a 5 per cent discount... just a moment, I'll just do the figures... yes, that comes to ?931-let's round it off and call it ?930.
A:That sounds reasonable. Finally, what sort of guarantee do you offer?
B:Well, these units are extremely sturdy and reliable. There's the usual one-year guarantee but they have an average life of at least 20 years...
