    Liberty Home Guard

    Liberty Home Guard gives you 24/7 access to an online portal and claims center. Coverage is available in all states except California, Illinois, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

    Liberty Home Guard plans

    Liberty Home Guard offers three home warranty plans to fit varying needs and budgets:

    • Appliance Guard: The Appliance Guard plan provides coverage for kitchen and home appliances. This includes your washer, dryer, ranges, ovens, cooktops, exhaust fans, refrigerator, built-in microwaves, garbage disposals, garage door openers and ceiling fans.
    • Systems Guard: The Systems Guard plan is for major home systems only. Coverage includes your heating system, air conditioning system, plumbing system, electrical system, ductwork and water heaters.
    • Total Home Guard: The Total Home Guard plan combines the Appliance Guard and Systems Guard packages.

    There are also 30 add-on coverage options available for any of these plans.

    What Liberty Home Guard customers say

    Customers have pretty positive things to say about Liberty Home Guard on our site. Many say the claims process is easy and that technicians are dispatched quickly. Other customers are impressed with the company’s willingness to learn and improve. However, frustrated customers say the long claims and repair times can be difficult and that claims are often denied.

    Liberty Home Guard is the only home warranty company that operates truthfully and as advertised. They don’t just tell you that everything is covered, overpromising and under-delivering. If anything they do the opposite. On my first claim, the repairman was above expectations and knew what he was doing.”

    OneGuard

    OneGuard offers home warranty and service plans in Arizona, Nevada and Texas. It has different plans for real estate professionals, homebuyers, home sellers and existing homeowners. Its offerings can vary by state as well.

    OneGuard plans

    For existing homeowners, OneGuard has three package options — one for appliances, one for systems and a combination plan that covers both:

    • ApplianceGuard: ApplianceGuard coverage includes your refrigerator (with ice maker and dispenser), dishwasher, range/oven/cooktop, built-in microwave, garbage disposal, instant hot water dispenser, trash compactor, washer and dryer. It also covers maintenance services like re-keying, garage remote reprogramming, carpet cleaning, pest control, dryer vent cleaning, termite treatment, lawn maintenance and window cleaning.
    • SystemGuard: SystemGuard covers home systems like your air conditioning, heating, plumbing (and plumbing stoppages), water heater, electrical system, ceiling and exhaust fans, central vacuum, smoke detectors, doorbells, garage door opener, equipment disposal, permits and code upgrades. Additionally, it covers services like air conditioning and heating tuneups, garage door tuneups, re-keying, garage remote reprogramming, carpet cleaning, window cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, pest control and lawn services.
    • HomeGuard: HomeGuard covers all the systems and appliances covered in the ApplianceGuard and SystemGuard plans.

    There are also several add-on options to cover things like pools, additional appliances and preexisting conditions. However, not all plans can receive every add-on.

    What OneGuard customers say

    Customers rate OneGuard highly for its customer service and professional technicians. Customers also say the claims process is easy and quick. Negative reviewers have said that calling customer service results in long hold times and that claims have been denied, though.

    My son and his husband live in Phoenix and they have OneGuard. They always had wonderful results. I knew by them that OneGuard stood behind what they said they would do. Thru their recommendation, I decided that’s who I’d go with. They've always been very good.”

    Bottom line: Liberty Home Guard or OneGuard?

    Liberty Home Guard and OneGuard both offer similar options for home warranties, but OneGuard has a much smaller service range. On the plus side, OneGuard offers maintenance services as part of its warranty packages, and it’s a little bit cheaper.

    • Liberty Home Guard is best for people who don’t live in Texas, Nevada or Arizona.
    • OneGuard is best for people in Arizona, Texas or Nevada who are looking for maintenance services rolled into their home warranty coverage.
