Why do homeowners invest in HMS Home Warranties?

November 11, 2014

Everyone has a different reason for researching home warranties. Maybe it's because you had to pay a huge bill to get one of your appliances fixed. Perhaps you want to protect your new home and got a recommendation from a friend. Whatever the reason was, make sure that an HMS® Home Warranty is on your list of options. Here's what a few of our customers had to say about why they chose to invest with HMS.

HMS edges out the competition
Besides our great customer service and professional service partners, there's another reason that consumers choose HMS Home Warranties over the competition. It's because you'll get the most for your money - just ask Jo D. from Cincinnati, Ohio.

"My policy is due to expire with [HMS] soon and I've spent most of today comparison shopping to see if I am still getting a reasonable deal with HMS," Jo wrote. "One thing has become very apparent, although [other] companies may have cheaper premiums or deductibles, they all seem to have a very low maximum claim amount - some will only pay out a max of $500 per claim!"

Imagine if a big-ticket item like your refrigerator or heating system failed? A $500 maximum wouldn't come close to covering the cost of repairs, nevermind replacement.

"It looks like [HMS] will be getting my business for another year!" Jo concluded.

Coverage goes beyond appliances
While most customers purchase a home warranty to protect their investment in expensive appliances, an HMS Home Warranty also covers the major systems in your home, like heating, plumbing and electrical. Jeff, from Leesburg, Virginia, experienced just how valuable a home warranty can be when he had a problem with the electrical sockets in his new home.

"My electrical outlets in the entire house were not holding the things that I plugged into them, HMS paid to have every outlet in the entire house replaced," Jeff explained.

There are lots of little mechanical problems that can occur in your home without warning. Wouldn't it be nice to know that there's a customer care representative waiting to take your call if something goes wrong? Jeff certainly thinks so. 

"In my experience [HMS has] been an excellent company to do business with," Jeff concluded.
