Job well done, quick, pleasant. Would have this gentleman again. He replaced my garbage disposal, cleaned up, explained what he was doing and chatted a little bit as he worked about his family. The communication was a little weak when I try to call him. My suggestion would be to make the window a little smaller or let the customer know about what time the person will be there. I waited from 11 to 3 and it would be nice if you let people know what what the smaller time window would be.
The Customer Service Agents for Choice Home Warranty were very helpful and cordial. I recommended a garbage disposal service company to the agent and solicited that company while on the phone. The Service Technician Replaced garbage disposal quickly and easily.
My A/C quit working Saturday night, I contacted Choice Home Warranty the following morning. By Sunday evening I had a approximate appointment time for Monday. The company was prompt and friendly. My Home Warranty covered all parts and service. All I had to pay was the $45.00 service call fee.
Overheating problem, checked out dryer, found lots of lint. Said our piping to the roof must be plugged. (Not covered in warranty. We understand.) The technician that came over was very thorough and polite. Overall a great experience.
Called today to inquire about a home warranty and was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful customer service I received on my call with Kayleigh. She was polite, professional and an overall joy to deal with. We went over every possible detail of all my options and she helped me decide on the best one for my particular situation.
We are quick to criticize when things go wrong. We should be just as quick to praise. Well here comes the praise! The whole process for filing a claim till the repair was completed, I am happy with. Like being able to file the claim online easy. And the email responses and updating the info on the claim is a very big plus. Only Item I had that was a little concerning was the sending of a feedback survey to me as soon as I filed the claim asking about my "Overall Experience" with CHW. I feel the survey needs to be sent only after everything has been completed. Which you actually have done here. Which is great, just don't send one as soon as a claim is filed please. (Just my suggestion). Other than that all went extremely well.
From the very acceptable reply time with contact information you gave me for the CHW associated Tech assigned to repair my appliance, to the Tech's actual acceptable time line to come to my home and repair my appliance. The tech named John King with King's Appliance Repair LLC, was very polite, professional and knowledgeable. I was able to converse with him and go into more detail about my appliance problem before he even arrived for the repair diagnosis. With that he was able to bring the parts what he thought might be the problem with him when he came to my home. Saving time and money which is a very big deal to me and most people I know.
I highly recommend CHW keeping his service for a repair choice. And the $45.00 cost for the repair I had to pay is a great reasonable price. Hope when it is time for me to renew my Policy I can still get it at that Repair Fee price. So anyways the Tech repaired my appliance with the part he brought, the same day and even gave me some pointers on keeping my appliance in tip top shape. So I am very satisfied at least for my first claim ever using CHW. Regards and Thanks, Kerry
This was my first experience using my Choice Warranty program, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I called the service number and set up to have a repair person come to fix my washing machine. The next day I received an email from Choice informing me that they had so far been unable to locate a vendor who could come in a timely manner. Choice offered another option - one where I could find my own repair vendor, submit an estimate, pay for the service and be reimbursed for all except my $60 payment. I have a Sears Kenmore washer that I love, and went online. I found a very reputable vendor who could come out that very day! I am wondering who the vendors are that Choice uses here in my town - I was able to easily locate a vendor and make an appointment immediately. I chose this option.
Today a very nice repair technician called and came out to the house. She was able to diagnose the problem, locate the necessary parts and repair my washer. Choice requires the vendor to contact them with an estimate; she had to provide many details including part numbers, descriptions, etc. I surmise this is to keep vendors from gouging them, however, I wanted my machine repaired in the best way, with the best parts - I did not want a new machine. We finally figured out all of the estimates, billing, payments, all done with smartphones these days. I think I will use this option for any future service needs - it was more efficient and faster than using the phone or internet.
When we found out about the problem with the AC the day yesterday, I was very worried especially after I read all the negative reviews from other home owners who had similar issues with their AC's! However, we were extremely happy with Choice Home Warranty Customer Service and the service contractor, Premier HVAC Mechanical; within 15-30 minutes of my call yesterday, a claim was generated and an appointment was scheduled for Monday July 22.
I knew a lot of people have been having AC problems due to the heat wave, so I did not expect to get an appointment sooner. However, to my great surprise, Oscar the Tech from Premier HVAC called me before noon and said he has a slot available right away and can come to check it; since I was at work, I told him I could not, but I will be home about 4:30 if that works for him; he said he can't promise, but he will try his best if he is done with his other service calls; we were very happy when he called about 7:30-8 and said he can come by; as promised, he came and checked everything, diagnosed and fixed the problem within an hour. Thanks to Oscar and CHW, our daughter had a nice sleep after suffering badly the night before! I can speak about my experience, and I will definitely recommend CHW to my friends and family.
I have had CHW since November 2018. So far I had to make claims 4 times. I had my heating system fail on two occasions. I got my claim honored but each time the technician was available after a week when we needed immediate attention as the interior of our house was freezing. Each time the tech came and made a simple adjustment for which I had to pay the service fee of $60. Could have cost much less had I called a local handyman. When our drier was having problems, we were given $299 as the company felt it was more cost effective to replace the dryer.
I later found that a decent dryer costs much more than $299, with added costs for shipping and installation. Right now we are having a water leak problem since June 9, 2019. The city alerted us about the constant running of water. The tech assigned by CHW came and found the leak is happening between the water meter and our inlet control. As this is outside our house foundation, CHW denied the claim per their terms. Again spending $60 just to find the leak is outside the house is rather disappointing. I am on a 5 year contract and hope the service (benefits that I get for the cost of the warranty) gets better in future. Right now I would say I am okay and hence I give 4 stars rating.
I purchased a Choice Home warranty repair for 6 years. I've had it since 4/24/17. I used it for the 1st time, for my washer, a water pump failure. I called choice warranty, and reported it. Choice Warranty arranged for a technician to call me. I told the tech., about the error code on my appliance, error/OE, which meant, the water pump had gone bad. The tech reaffirmed the appointment with me. That Choice had set up. The tech. and his helper, came out to my home, on time. They made the repair, and my washer works great!
I would say the entire process went extremely well. Choice Warranty has given me total peace of mind. I have a tendency, to not have the best of luck with equipment, in my home. I think having this type of 24/7 protection is wonderful! I now know, if anything goes bad in my home. It will only cost $45.00, for a service call. I look at this way, we buy car insurance to protect us and our cars. It makes perfect sense to protect all the expensive stuff in our homes. Appliances, water heaters, air conditioning, furnaces, roofs, water pipe clogs, electrical systems, freezers, spas, pool pumps, ceiling fans, and many other things you can get protected.
I just thought of, how expensive it was, just to keep service plans going for each one of the things, I mentioned. And realized this was a much better way to spend my money. They not only will repair these things in your home, for the $45.00 service fee. But if they can't fix it/them they will replace it/them, FOR FREE! When you buy extended warranties, like on your fridge. They won't replace it, if it can't be fixed! But Choice Warranty WILL replace it, in the event it can't be fixed. So, if your fridge, or your central air, or something else fails in your home that is protected by Choice. It will would cost you, a heck of a lot more, than Choice Warranty charges for covering all of your stuff, for six years of peace of mind!
So now I know, if my fridge fails, and can't be fixed, I get a brand new one, for $45.00. You can't beat that!! So, hell yeah, I highly recommend them!! And NO, I don't represent them, OR work for them! I am just a very happy customer, who believes in the peace of mind, that Choice Warranty gives me!!! I made the right Choice, in choosing, Choice Warranty Protection, and so should YOU!!!

Your customer service was great. He looked for best deal for me as a veteran. Wasn’t pushy which I really appreciate. In fact I decided to take a 5 yr warranty since I this is a house I have no experience with an am unsure of the ac and hot water heaters.
Kelly was very helpful and worked with me to get the right plan for my house. The information that she gave to me made me feel that the right choice was made and that my house and the items inside that were covered would be taken care of.
I called Choice Warranty and filed a claim this morning around 9:30 am. Around 9:45 I received a call that technician would be here between 11 am and 3 pm. The technician called around 10, said he was in the area and could be here in 5 minutes. He promptly repaired the A/C. With temperatures in lower Alabama reaching 95+, Kudos to Choice Home Warranty and Air Right LLC for the prompt service.
When I reported about the disfunction of two bathroom toilets flushing, CHW responded quickly and courteously. And a plumber came to fix them within 48 hours. I was quite pleased with your service. I am so appreciative for your speedy work.
Dryer Squeaks. Very prompt service. Very knowledgeable repair person. Very happy with service so far. Repair person will return in only a few days with necessary parts. Replaced all parts so that I could use the dryer over the weekend if necessary. Will return on Monday with new motor.

Whether a home warranty is worth it really comes down to how often you plan to use it. If you anticipate needing more than a few home repairs in the coming year, a home warranty can be a solid investment for your budget and your peace of mind.
