Dear [Recipients Name],
About account number 689802, I would like to inform you of my intent to discontinue service.
After checking prices from other termite control specialists in the area, I realize we have been paying too much for you. On top of that, your employees are rude when they come to treat our home. They park blocking the driveway and talk for long periods of time on their cell phones. I'm sure you do not pay them for that. I certainly do not intend to.
I know that my bills are paid up. I trust you will close my account immediately.

Further things to consider when writing cancellation letters to vendors
Cancellation letters are letters you write to a service provider, company or institution, informing them that you are dissatisfied with their product, service, or membership and that you wish to discontinue it. Cancellation letters can be written for several things such as canceling an insurance policy, a cable service, rental agreement, a magazine subscription, a bank account, order, credit, etc. The reason why people issue cancellation letters is mainly due to unsatisfactory or poor performance, not meeting the expectations, and at times unavailability of funds.
Cancellation letters are written in a clear and a concise manner. Go straight to the point and suggest actions you expect to be taken. Clearly state what you are canceling and explain you reason for it. Where necessary, include the details of what you are canceling, for example, account details. Mention that you wish to receive confirmation that the cancellation was effected. State clear steps that you would take if cancellation is not put into effect within the specified notice period. End the letter on a positive tone and request the reader to acknowledge receipt. Send the letter well in advance to give enough notice to the reader.
Letters to Vendors
Letters to vendors are letters written to people or companies offering goods for sale. These letters could be written to inquire information about a product, terminate a contract with a vendor, or to inform a vendor of relocating of business. If you own a company, writing to your vendors is important as it provides you and the recipient with proof that you actually requested something or took action regarding an issue. It is also an effective way to communicate sensitive information that may not be communicated on the phone.
Letters to vendors must be written in the standard business letter format and should use an official letterhead. Start the letter with a statement that informs the recipient of the purpose of your letter. Explain the letter in details providing all the important information. For instance, if you are writing to terminate your contract with the recipient, mention the date when you want to effect the change. However, if your letter is to inform the recipient of your business relocation, you should provide the new business location and address. Be brief and use a professional tone. Finish on a positive tone and sign the letter with your full name.
