Final Thoughts – Allied Home Warranty

Allied Home Warranty makes getting coverage less confusing by introducing its one-page contract. The company does provide good coverage for common house appliances and systems but it certainly lacks in depth when compared to other home warranty services. Allied Home Warranty offers 24/7 customer support and makes home warranty fast and easy.

I have had a policy with this company for over 5 years. Over the last 2 years I have filed a claim for repairs of a washing machine, microwave, and dishwasher. Each time they have decided to not pay for the repairs but offer a cash amount that is so small that you can not get the appliance repaired and is normally less than half the price you paid. In the last dishwasher case they offered $200 and they check took over 2 months to arrive. Obviously this creates a situation requiring you to go purchase a new appliance and pay a huge increase for a similar appliance. I have terminated my service with them - as 3 times and several lost weeks of service of an appliance is not right.

One of the worst home warranty companies we have ever had! Terrible customer service. When you enter a claim you never hear back from anyone until you harass them for a response. They never have people to send to our area, so we have to do self service claims and then they do not reimburse or cover hardly anything. They would rather lose customers than make a situition right. Highly DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Here is how the Allied Home Warranty scam works. They charge you a $60 service call fee, about the same you would pay for any other company for a service call. Then they over-quote the cost of repairs and provide a small token allowance toward the repair or they will outright refuse to make the repair by calling it a "modification" and not covered by the contract. For example, if your water heater breaks they charge $60 to come look at it. Then they may tell you it will be $1,500 to replace it and your warranty gives you a $200 discount, so it will be $1,300. You could have called your own plumber and had the same work done for half the cost, but they require you to use their own repair company (NRG Home Services which is owned by the same company and person as Allied). Here is the proper way to file a complaint against Allied Home Warranty. File a complaint with the state agency that licenses them, the Texas Real Estate Commission. Search for "TREC residential service program" and click the link for complaints. Allied is required by law to respond. I filed an open records request for complaints against Allied Home Warranty and found that in some cases they settled financially with people filing complaints against them in exchange for dropping the complaint. Additionally, you may file a deceptive trade practices act complaint with the Texas Attorney General's Office. Search for "Texas attorney general deceptive trade practices." Allied Home Warranty has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. How do they manage that? They pay to be a member of the BBB and the BBB doesn't want to rate their members low. It hurts their business model. Search for "bbb pay for ratings." In my case the BBB wouldn't even accept my complaint. Its no wonder Allied has a small number of complaints. It should be noted that Allied Home Warranty's "One-page contract" prohibits you from filing a lawsuit against them.

This warranty company provides you with a worthless piece of paper that basically covers nothing. The "repair pros" they send out are a total joke, cashing your checks to "order parts" and then never to be seen again. I have complained to Allied about a shady appliance repair person, received and apology and was told "we will reassign another vendor" only to have the same shady fool arrive at my doorstep. Allied's reply "well, that was all we had in your area." I guess South Austin is too far out in the middle of nowhere and there are no reputable repair people? Save your money. This one is full of losers and scammers.
