We really do appreciate that things can occur that are outside of our control in life, but we al.lso recognise most of our customers have very patiently waited for their appointments with us. We as a small business already working with a high depencendy on weather conditions etc really feel the hit when given no notice prior to cancellation because the appointment was simply "not convenient anymore" or "we just forgot". Bug Me always endeavor to assist in sending all of our customers booking confirmations and reminders via text and email in an effort to avoid this and also will try to make arrangements to accommodate the appointment. We feel as though our cancellation fees really are quite reasonable compared to other businesses and industries and while it doesn't cover our costs incurred it really does help us to keep our staff employed.
