    Hi John

    This is a voluntary charter - you can utilise the template as is or edit it to suit your needs. It is just another layer of transparency and trust to put your potential clients at ease.

    If it were me I would download the Green Tick and put a little bit of text about the charter so that a client could click through and read it before engaging you.

    I would then send a copy as part of my supporting information.

    Here are three examples (that I know of) of members using the LJN Customer Charter on their website/literature.

    Andy Lonsdale - Lonsdale Landscapes Customer Charter

    Kerrie John - The Garden Design Co Customer Charter - click on link at the base of the page.

    Andy Westacott - Westacott Gardens Customer Charter - Andy has created a page called the Customer Confidence Pack.

    Have you adopted the LJN customer charter or a variation of it? Please let me know.

    Thanks for the update Nicky...Gary Rees-Keeble has also informed me that Affinity Landscapes has adopted the Customer Charter too.

    I think that this is one of the most powerful client/business documents one can have in the paperwork armoury.
  • Thats the voluntary customer charter on my website now.

    Thanks
