SELECT HOME WARRANTY

Select Home Warranty doesn't make it easy to know what coverage you'll get and how much it'll cost. Although some customers have positive things to say about Select's home warranty coverage, the site itself has broken links and spelling errors that made us question this company's professionalism.

CHOICE HOME WARRANTY

Choice Home Warranty is taking steps to improve their reputation, as shown by a higher rating with the BBB than they've had in the past. But, compared with other home warranty companies, Choice Home Warranty still has room for growth. Many customers have still been less-than-happy with pushy sales representatives and long waits to get repairs scheduled and completed.

24-7 HOME WARRANTY

24-7 Home Warranty has an out-of-date website, and they outsource all of their contracts to other providers. With no rating from the BBB, no customer reviews or testimonials, and all home warranty contracts being serviced by other businesses, 24-7 Home Warranty doesn't meet our criteria for a trusted, reputable provider.

GUARANTEED HOME WARRANTY

Guaranteed Home Warranty offers no information on their website as to what you get with their service. They have a D+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, lots of broken links, and no details as to what they cover in a home warranty. Rather than entering your information hoping for a quote, we strongly recommend you choose a higher-ranked home warranty company.

Best Home Warranty

Who has the best Home Warranty? Whether you're a homeowner, landlord, or home seller hoping to sweeten the deal for prospective buyers, a home warranty can make a significant difference. From appliances like washers and dryers to home systems such as HVAC and electrical, home warranty policies protect you in the event of a malfunction or needed repair.

Given that the average costs of even a minor fix can easily run into the hundreds or thousands of dollars, it's easy to understand why many people purchase home warranties every month. The coverage purchased typically explains what is and is not covered, so you know exactly what you're getting. Also, most plans have some kind of deductible or service fee once a technician has been dispatched for your repair or claim.

You should be aware that home warranties are one of the most complained-about services available today. Why? The main reason is that customers don't pay attention to the fine print. When considering a home warranty policy, be sure to take a look at a sample contract. Like all warranty and insurance companies, they're hoping that you don't need to make a claim - and so many of the cosmetic, non-essential inner workings and components may be excluded from coverage.

However, if you take the time to educate yourself on the home warranty you're purchasing, there should be no unpleasant surprises, and your covered systems will be repaired in a timely fashion by a licensed, reputable technician.

As you decide which company earns your business for a home warranty plan, here are several criteria to consider:

  • Coverage. What is included, and what is specifically excluded? Do the plans offered cover the systems and appliances you most want to protect?
  • Premiums and Fees. What will you pay for your coverage? Will you pay monthly, quarterly, or yearly? What are the fees you pay for service calls? Do you have a deductible?
  • Reputation. What is the company's rating with the Better Business Bureau, if they have one? What do current and previous clients have to say about the home warranty, both during the purchasing process and especially during the claims/repairs experience?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best home warranty companies available today. We hope this research helps you find the best home warranty policy for your home or rental property!
