Request Letter for an Item’s Quotation

People commonly write request letters to various vendors and suppliers when they want to buy a specific product from them but do not know the price. In this letter, they request the vendor or the supplier to provide them with the quotation of the item they are interested in.

If you have a tight budget and you don’t know whether you can afford to buy an item from a particular supplier or not, you can write a request letter in order to know the price instead of sitting back and keep guessing the price.

Who writes it?

Any person who is interested in buying a particular product can ask for its quotation. It does not matter whether you want to purchase an item in bulk or a single item. A quotation will always let you know how much it will cost you to purchase a product, how much discount you can expect from the seller, and what mode of payment will be acceptable.

How to write? 

Come straight to the point:

When you write this letter, remember that you are communicating with someone who is a vendor or a supplier. So, ask him straight about your purpose for writing.

Describe the product:

 It is your job to make it easy for the vendor to know which product you are referring to. So, give features of the product you are interested in.
