    I have commercial client w/ a written contract. They are my biggest account and I even purchased a larger piece of equipment this past summer to service them better. Since this Fall they've been having hard times (like the rest of us). They just laid of 20 people yesterday.
    Anyhow, they want me to add some clauses to my contract that entail-in writing- how certain areas are to be serviced and the level of service those areas are to recieve. There was 1 price change which was in the contract when signed -written in and initialed at the time of signing.
    So my "boss" wants me to make the points out in bold lettering and about a page of add ons to boot-basically rewriting the contract and resubmitting it.
    I am concerned that they will not honor the existing contract and try to say its now open for rebid.
    I think I'll just do as requested on a seperate "ammendment" and have them sign off on it.
    Whats my best route, any better ideas?

    yeah, I wouldn't cancel a contract...hoping they'd keep their word and sign a new one. I'd go with a rider. Done that a bunch of times. Maybe you can negotiate a longer term for giving them a "discount" this year.

    ex. This section replaces section x.yy of contract dated xx.yy.xxxx. Service is initiated at 12" of accumulation as recorded at xyz airport.

    I think an ammendment to the existing contract is the best way to go. Good luck.
