I do not know how they can have a 5 star rating. I have a simple repair and it going on 2 weeks with nothing done. They sent a plumber out (PLUMBING SPECIALTIES) that never responded to the warranty company on what it will take to do the repairs. Every time I have called for update your on hold for over an 1 to 2 hours on hold. I have been told by 4 people that I will get a call back. still nothing! AHS IS NOT A 5 STAR HOME WARRANTY COMPANY BY NO MEANS!
This company is a Scam. It takes over 45 minutes every time to talk to them. The contractors they send are very low standard. I had my dishwasher broken, The contractor came to visit after 2 weeks and told us to break our counter top to pull the dishwasher out. It took only 5 minutes for my handyman to pull it out. If I would have followed their advice, I would have end up with a broken counter top. Not worth paying 40 bucks a month to these guys. Very unprofessional service.
AHS calls it "24/7" but the fine print says, "...but not in a row." It's difficult to express how disappointed we are with the drop in the responsiveness of American Home Shield in regards to a recent warranty covered incident. The company boasts of its "24/7" service, yet when we called after our water heater began leaking, we remained on hold for as long as 45 minutes before the line went dead. Even after closing the water supply valve, the appliance continued to leak. We were finally able to reach an agent the following day after several accumulated hours of being on hold. We explained the situation and were told that they couldn't get a hold of their local plumber in our area until... Read More
This is by far one of my most frustrating dealings with insurance companies. We initially needed a technician to come out and possibly fix a countertop burner (1) for a new home purchse. After the first technician came (and advised he needed “full access” to the stove, which he could only do if the electricity was cut to the unit) we went ahead and had the unit cut from electrical access. Then the guy comes back and then states he needed the correct part which he needed to order. Mind you both times he came he DIDNT EVEN TOUCH THE COUNTERTOP! SO 1 MONTH LATER, we finally got a “new” appliance guy who then stated he also needed to order a part, however he couldn’t do this job alone (he... Read More
I have been a customer with AHS for over 15 years and have always been completely happy with their service. However today was enough to make me cancelling my contract. I was assign Gary, with Neighborhood Plummer & Rooter, Inc. He committed to contacting me within 48 hours to confirm an appt. After 72 hrs I can and left several messages. Finally we connect and he tells me he will be here with 2 hours (12 noon). I call him again at 12:30 and he tells me that he committed to appt between 12-2pm??? once he arrived (1:20p) he is on the phone according to him, with another customer, 20 min later, he hangs up to tell me he can not authorize my repair because problem was not due to normal...

Yes, a bunch of crooks, they hire shady contractors that look for reasons not to fix or replace your appliance. Do NOT buy their warranty, they never answer the phone, they charged my credit card for a service fee and never showed up! 0 Stars!.
AHS is nothing but a bunch of crooks. Take your money every month and provide zero service. I paid extra for pool coverage and the service provided was substandard resulting in multiple leaks and a pump that died less than 90 days after replacement. We fixed it ourself. I have not had hot water for five days while they are “processing”. There is over and hour hold time anytime you call. I repeat they are crooks. I would give them zero star if I could. It must be their own employers providing the positive reviews. Even the contractors say they are a pain to work with.
I am considering switching to another company. At first I was very pleased with AHS. It appears that they are now using sub-par contractors to complete the work. It took over 6 weeks for my refrigerator to be fixed. Why? Because the company didn't realize they had received the part from AHS. I contacted customer service on several occasions and was promised follow up. It was not until I totally lost my cool that they were able to determine the contractor had the part for several weeks. The contractor had the nerve to call me back and say Oh we have the part! Really??? I am waiting for a plumber as I type. He was scheduled to come on Monday. I received a call that his truck...

This company is terrible. I have waited on hold for 2.5 hours to speak to a customer service representative and finally hung up. We had to wait 10 days to get our hot water heater replaced even though the new tank had already been delivered. AHS used a repair company that was 1.5 hours away with only ONE technician that could install the new tank so we waited 7 days after the initial visit. They refused to find another alternative closer to us that could do the job quicker. Their customer service managers do not care about the customers and show no desire to help. Don't use them.
Your service is rated very high. I have had this service for seven years. I have probably only used it three or four times. The most recent is for a microwave oven problem. The service technician from the company that is contracted for this item in my area has been to my house three times and the result is that it still isn't working. I called again today and they told me more parts were on order and that they wouldn't arrive for another week and at that time would call to schedule an appt. Today is Jan 16 2018 and this problem has been ongoing since Sept 27, 2017 and I still have no satisfactory result. You should re-evaluate this service contractor since he is definitely not doing...
