Vintage Otis Elevator Company

Mechanic Repair Folio

Service Order & Certificate of Time

Form 2940

This listing is for an original, old - vintage folio with form inside which would have used years ago by an Otis Elevator Repair Mechanic when servicing a machine. I took a close up photo of the form so you can see all of the information that would have been gathered on this form (long before computers), including building location, names of men (that should tell you how old, not the general term repair person to include women), the hours the person spent repairing the elevator, what was done and in lower right corner mention of "ropes".  The form is not dated, just starts with 19__ at top.  My thought is 1940's-1950's but I have no way of knowing for sure so I am not making guarantees.  The form is inside a green heavy plastic (leatherette type) case that folds 3 ways.  Has the name of the company on the cover and form 2940.  If you collect Otis Elevator Company items, work for them today or know someone who did, here is an interesting collectible...I don't see any like it for sale right now online.

Otis Elevator was founded in 1853 and was acquired in 1976 by United Technologies so today it is a subsidiary of UTS.  They have over 61,000 employees and in 2007 revenue of US $11.885 billion.  Their headquarters is in Farmington, Connecticut.

Condition is as you see in the photos.  For age, I think its good, but green covering does have some rub and scuff mark here and there, light soiling and discoloration of the green coloring in places. Paper is blank, no handwriting, does have small clips and snips along edges.

Please view photos as they are considered part of the description.  Kindly ask me questions before buying and I will respond to you promptly. This item is pre-owned, not new and not perfect, but just right for the collector who will understand and appreciate its unique value.  You will receive the item in the pictures. Your satisfaction is important. Thank you for looking.

International Buyers – Please Note:  Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.  We won't under-value merchandise or mark the item as a gift on customs forms. Doing that is against U.S. and international laws.

Shipping & Handling:  Shipping costs are what post office charges me with only minor handling included. Packing done carefully. Shipping to the United States and other countries if indicated.  Shipping to approved PayPal address.  I will gladly try to combine shipping on multiple like items.  I ship promptly after you pay promptly.  Insurance will be included in the handling charge if the item warrants it, such as fragile, antique or unusual collectible.  Your satisfaction is very important. Please pay promptly after close of auction since I do not want to file unpaid claim with eBay.  I do and always try to describe items to the best of my knowledge.  If it does not say new or mint condition, then it is not new.  A vintage item will show some signs of wear.  Most of my items are vintage, used, pre-owned, so please view the photos included with the description to be sure you are comfortable with the condition and quality before buying. Many of my items are acquired from estate sales so I do not know the prior owner or history of the items. Please feel free to email me with questions prior to purchasing and I will do my best to answer. Returns accepted within 14 days.  I reserve the right to cancel all bids if bidder has excessive negative feedback. I look forward to giving a positive rating to Buyer after a mutually positive experience.  I sell on eBay as a fun hobby.  My full-time job is managing a large customer service department where we strive to provide quality service to our customers just like you here on eBay.
