We take our scoring and rating process very seriously. We look after what we believe most clients are after. Our goal is to make the search of a home service provider easy as pie and feature the home warranty insurance companies which are most apt for our readers' requirements.
This can be a difficult task at times, but our experts are using a plethora of data we have gathered for several years for every home warranty company in our database and analyzing it statistically, and are able to output what we believe is the best answer.
Here are some of the aspects we take into consideration. You can view the precise criteria we use for rankings in each of the review pages, but below you can find our top executive summary for how do we look at a home warranty provider.
- Credible home warranty providers. Credible companies are ones that have a clear contact address in the U.S, we know the names of the key guys like the CEO, and of course, we have client reviews we have been able to locate from across the web. Usually, big companies with a lot of employees, like Choice Home Warranty, have higher credibility. However, it does not mean that a small service provider can't have high credibility as well. Smaller and more localized home warranty vendors, like Elevate Home Warranty, for example, that operate only in one state, sometimes have better services and more time to devote to you and your requests.
- Affordable prices. In each review, you can find home warranty quotes for the complete array of plans available at this service provider, the cost of each package or component, and the deductible, or service call fee.
- A superb service. That's why we aggregate every client review we could locate online about each company, both positive and negative, and make sure clients like the service they are getting.
- A quick response times. When you have a problem in your home, like a sink leak or a broken heater in the middle of a cold winter, you need it to be fixed right now, not in a few days or weeks. That's why it is important for us to know that the service providers we recommend can handle all claims quickly and effectively.
- Variety of plans. Different plans with several types of coverage and diverse prices are necessary for a provider in order to be agile and flexible with its customers. We like those who can offer you a basic plan and some extras, or a more comprehensive plan if needed.
We Do Not Appreciate
- Any home warranty service vendors who are not honest and transparent about the nature of their service, and who's behind the company. You can read some examples of such companies on our home warranty scams page.
- Service providers who do not provide exemplary service to clients. If the majority of clients is dissatisfied about the quality and nature of services they have been provided with, then we are not happy with this company either.
- Home warranty services who charge you through the roof for their services. Insurance companies of all kinds must make a profit, we get that, but there is absolutely no point in purchasing a home warranty if you are going to pay massive amounts of cash each month on it. If you eventually pay more each month than it would cost you to use a professional for your home repairs, you are doing it all wrong.
- Companies that take their time and not providing you the service you deserve in a reasonable timeframe.
- Companies that are not easily accessible around the clock. Some home repairs, like a leaking water heater or a broken air conditioner in the middle of the summer, are emergencies and should be treated as such. In case the company does not provide emergency services, we will warn our customers about it.
