There are several good reasons to enter a service agreement.
- Agreements allow your provider to better plan and manage your service. That means all parts and equipment will be ready in advance and you will avoid expedited shipping charges.
- The accurate cost projections of an agreement allow you to budget more easily and wisely.
- Scheduling well in advance helps you sync upcoming maintenance outages with the production schedule and make other preparations, like bring rental air onsite, etc.
The amount of visits per year should be based on environment, run time, manufacturers’ recommendations and cost. Servicing your machines regularly is usually much less expensive than the alternative of lost production and increased electrical usage costs.
Most service agreements are based on quarterly visits - around 2,200 hours if you run 24/7.
Compare that to driving your automobile 60 miles an hour for the same period. You would rack up 132,000 miles! A lot can happen in that time.
Contracts are not always in your best interest. The good news: your existing agreement is probably non-binding. Look closely and you will see a clause that says “either party may cancel this agreement for any reason with written notice, etc.” Don’t be deluded by salesmen asserting that you are bound by a “legal” document. It’s your responsibility to get the best service for the cheapest price.
