home warranty companies in jacksonville florida

Posted on January 1th, 2011 by Admin

The servicepeople which the home warranty companies send out are the low bidders and they have little incentive to do what's best for the homeowner. The warranty company is really the client, not the homeowner. I think the fact that neither the ten home warranty companies contacted nor the National Home Service Contract Association chose to respond to Angie's List's interview requests speaks volumes about the character of the industry. I bought a home last year and at the suggestion of my real estate agent purchased a home warranty plan with Old Republic. My agent said he used to suggest AHS but had found there were a lot of complaints. I thoroughly read the details so I knew when I had to make calls for service what was and what was not covered. Every one of my service calls were handled smoothly by OR and the contractors were knowledgeable and prompt in resolving the issue. I had my dishwasher repaired, my refrigerator/freezer repaired, some plumbing and electrical issues. Thank goodness for the Home Warranty plan and that Old Republic customer service was so good and their networked contractors seem to be of a higher caliber than is reported here in this article. I paid $375 for the plan and $75 for each service call. I think it was money well spent and am very satisfied!I had a 1 year policy with American Home Shield AHS that came with the sale when I bought my renovated 1908 Craftsman home.
