    Same day service .




    That's on my new post card in big letters at the top.
    Does it suggest they will get service the same day they call ??
    That's my intention.
    Or , should it be reworded

    Thanks

    That's what I would think. Maybe say, call by noon (or some time) and same-day service guaranteed?

    Thanks for the help



    In smaller letters , it states " call for details " so I can explain that if I get too many calls , today is not possible , but tomorrow is .

    I wonder if it can be worded better

    I was givin a very good piece of advice many ... many years ago

    It was >>>> Do what you say, when you say it

    SSss ooo .... Same day service ....kinda means .... service that very same day ...no matter how busy it is

    I can only relate to some sort of "Service within 24 hours" kinda thing

    Agree with ^.
    or
    "Call today, serviced tomorrow" .....IDK.
    "Service within 24 hours" < I think I would go with this.

    I agree. And what if conditions are not agreeable for work? Heat, winds, or whatever. The 24 hours buys you some time.

    the local cable company advertised that for a while but had to stop because it was unobtainable
