Overall Rating: 9.1 / 10 (Excellent)

Select Home Warranty’s lack of a term maximum is very attractive, especially when considering their comparatively generous appliance and system limits. They do have a waiting period for service, and require maintenance records, which can be off-putting to some customers. Select is an excellent choice for customers who value savings and flexibility.

In the case of Select’s yearlong base-level contract, no home inspection is required prior to full coverage. For the sake of education and peace-of-mind, this company provides a sample contract and quote calculator on their website. In exchange for a $75 administration fee, they also offer a pro-rated refund if the initial 30 days have expired.

As our current home warranty was set to expire we decided to make the change to Select Home Warranty. They have the highest rating and excellent customer reviews. We are happy with our decision to make the change to Select Home Warranty for our home warranty needs.

Just renewed my home warranty policy...it was easy. Richard also explained multi-year policy which not only saved me money but also gave me free months on my policy. Have not had to call for service yet, but I am confident that I will not have a problem.

I just completed the process of renewing my policy for another year. Richard helped me to make this the easiest task I accomplished this morning. He was quite competent in explaining all my options and asked the right questions to look for discounts that might apply for me, which was a great help in keeping the policy affordable. I would highly recommend dealing with Richard.

I am a new home owner and I decided to shop for my home warranty. One of my friends advised me to get something that can be effective right away. After couple of comparing prices, I decided to go with Select Home. I got the full coverage at a discounted rate. After a year, I filed a claim, now they made it even easier to do so. I went to the website and filed a claim. Someone will get back to you shortly to confirm and process is easier but more efficient. Kudos to Select Home Warranty!

I have had a trouble with my dryer. I called Select home and filing a claim was fast. The representative took his time to get all the details and filed my claim in less than 5 minutes. I received an email with the details. They gave me a local contractor to call and I did. The response from the contractor was prompt and the job was done accurately. Very professional workmanship. Worry no more when you have Select Home Warranty.

My air conditioning unit went out. I have been happy with my communication with this company. I called Select for help to file my claim. It was quick and easy. The guy came out in less than 24 hours. He was someone that you will be afraid to be around. It was a short repair and was handled with extra care. Good job Select Home for dealing with passionate, reliable and professional local contractors. I am happy to share my experience to all.
