How Can I Be of Assistance? (Formal)
“How can I be of assistance?” is a great formal option that shows you are ready to help someone. “Assistance” sounds very professional in this question, putting someone’s mind at ease that you can offer them help.
You’ll generally use this phrase when speaking to clients or customers. It’s a great way to show them that you care and want to help them however you can.
We encourage you to use “how can I be of assistance?” in business emails. It’s much more effective than “more than happy to help” when writing formal correspondence to clients.
Here are some examples showing you where you might use it:
Dear Mr. Barrowmore,
I was given your details by Jane on Friday. She said I could help you with a project. How can I be of assistance?
So, how can I be of assistance? I’m keen to help you get through some of these issues.
Ready to Give You a Hand (Informal)
“Ready to give you a hand” is excellent in informal situations. It shows you’re keen and willing to help someone regardless of the task they might have for you.
You will have the most luck with this synonym when speaking with friends and family. It suggests you are enthusiastic when offering help, encouraging them to ask you for it.
“Ready to give you a hand” does not work well in formal contexts. It’s far too conversational, which is similar to how “more than happy to help” works. We recommend switching between the two in informal situations to mix things up.
Here are a few examples to show you how “ready to give you a hand” works:
Well, I’m ready to give you a hand, so you don’t have to do this alone.
You know I’m always ready to give you a hand. Is there anything I can do right now?
Is It Correct to Say “More Than Happy to Help”?
“More than happy to help” is grammatically correct, but it is not formal. You should avoid using it in business emails because it does not suit the tone.
You should use the phrase informally to show you’re happy to lend assistance to someone. It’s a great way to let them know you want to make things easier for them.
Also, here are a few other variations you can use:
- I would be more than happy to help
- I will be more than happy to help
- I’m more than happy to help you out
- More than willing to help
- More than happy to assist
You may notice that we used both “would” and “will” in two of the variations above. Both are correct, though “would” is more idiomatic. Most native speakers prefer using it to show their intention to help.
You should always use “than” rather than “then.”
“Than” allows you to compare how “happy” you feel with how much you want to “help” someone.
“Then” only works when talking about orders or the passing of time. Clearly, that does not apply to the context of “more than happy to help.”
