Beware of long contract renewal terms!!

February 17, 2012 | Comments Off on Beware of long contract renewal terms!!

I was on a sales call yesterday for someone who was disappointed with the service that they were receiving from their national alarm company and they were looking for a local alternative. She called on Alarm2000 because of our great reviews on

She told me that she not only signed up for an initial term of five (5) years, but that she did not read the contract to learn that the contract automatically reviewed for five (5) more years at the end of the initial term.

It sounds silly to have to remind everyone to read the contract before signing anything… but, READ THE CONTRACT BEFORE SIGNING ANYTHING!!

At Alarm2000 our initial term is just two (2) years, and renews for one (1) year terms. You should never enter an alarm monitoring agreement that is for more that three (3) years, and should not renew for more that one (1) year at a time. If you are being asked to commit for a longer period, it is a bad deal.
