Contractual Maintenance

Back to Services

In our 87 years of business we, at times, called ourselves a full line elevator contractor. Although it had a nice ring to it, we elected to exit the installation of elevators. A small company can't be all things to all people and still continue to service elevators of all vintage and make. We have a narrower focus without being spread out. That's good for us. That's good for our customers.

You could call us Hinterlands Elevator Company, and it would be accurate. It is our niche because we like the fit. It is our niche because our competitors have not made it theirs. It takes time and effort to provide personalized service to the many smaller communities that we serve. That's our mission.

We don't encourage you to break a contract; however, if you are wanting to test the market, we can help.

Before requesting a quotation for periodic service, please locate the sample clause noted below in your present agreement:
"This agreement will be effective January 1, 2002 and will continue until terminated as provided herein. Either party may terminate this agreement at the end of the first five year period or at the end of any five year period by giving the other party ninety days prior written notice."
In the above example, to properly terminate service on the first five year anniversary (January 1, 2007), cancellation must be no later than October 1, 2006. Otherwise the contract will automatically roll over for five more years through January 1, 2012.
