When I make a call to get some information regarding a matter, I generally start the conversation with "Hello, I would like to inquire about something."
Is this a correct usage? If not, what would be a good way to start such a conversation?
Edit: To provide some more context, here's a sample conversation:
Call center employee: Hello, my name is ... How may I help you?
Me: Hello. I would like to inquire about something. One of my clients is a paper factory, and they would like to do business with one of your suppliers. Do they need to be get any kind of certification from you to do so?
