As a "clock person" as well as a bells one, I'd say that it's generally a good idea to have a regular maintenance contract (the same goes for bells too - but the Church gets its maintenance on the cheap as so many of us are prepared to do it).

The key thing is to identify - through pooled experience - a firm (or individual) that will do a thorough job, do everything properly and check the moving parts that are out of ordinary reach (out of sight and out of mind) at a reasonable charge. There are firms who do little more than just turn up, sign the card and take the money!
