Good morning. Have you contacted them or have they contacted you, to schedule a date and time for this?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
the date for measurement is this week
Expert:  LegalKnowledge replied 6 months ago.

Thank you. If a date has been set and they are coming out and are starting to perform under the contract, it can not be canceled. The fact that they have not done this yet, is not a basis to cancel the contract, if a time period to cancel has passed, but the buyer failed to do so. If you want to cancel, you may be able to BUT they are going to likely demand damages/lost profits, for this to happen. Any time there is a 3 day period, companies usually wait before doing anything because they know if the buyer cancels the contract, they will have to refund any money and do not want to incur any costs.
