I've always had a home warranty, but I never liked American Home Shield. I fired them and terminated their service years ago. AFC is certified and approved, and they're endorsed by the Better Business Bureau. They've been very professional, courteous and fast each time I submit a claim. They explain everything very well. A technician comes in within a couple of days and depending on my schedule, but they’re normally readily available within 24 to 48 hours. They’re very patient.  Overall AFC has been excellent because I bought this house April 1st, 2013, built from the ground up and they built the house so fast that I didn’t think I could’ve sued them for negligence. I made up my mind that whatever I replace, it would be top quality and it’d be a top-quality company that would install it. I've replaced four things so far, including the sump pump, but it wasn’t under the warranty so I had to pay by my own pocket. When January comes, I can renew my contract and I’m gonna add some more things on it. I've told my church about AFC, so I’ve been advertising for their company because I had good experiences.

I bought a home, moved into it and wanted something better than the home warranty company I had. I did a Google search and AFC had the best reviews. When I submitted a claim with them, it went smooth and the rep had it pushed through pretty quickly. The tech who came was a local company that I used a few times directly on my other needs. He was excellent.

I have had an AFC Home Club plan for 6 months now and have had to use their services 3 times already unfortunately. Once for my dishwasher, another for my AC and a third time for a bathtub/faucet issue. Every time I have put a request in they have been quick to respond, schedule a technician and handle the problem without much stress. I am so very glad I am covered with my home club plan and plan to renew year after year to keep my home protected.

We had a refrigerator problem in our home in North Carolina, we live in New York but luckily our daughter lives around the corner. We went online to put in our claim and within minutes received a call back with a claim number and setup to GE repair through Sears. They came and fixed it on the days we needed and the time we wanted so she could be there and get to work on time. The whole process was so professional and devoid of problems that could have been an issue was handled smoothly. TotalProtect even called back to see if everything was repaired and if we needed any further assistance. We highly recommend this program to protect all your appliances worry free.

I have read the reviews of this company and must say AFC is the best I have ever dealt with. I filed my claim request and within 2 hours the service had been set up. The man that came out was great and fixed my problem within a few minutes. Thanks AFC for being there when I needed you most.

I've had pretty good experience with the company. I find that a lot of the companies in their database are very small and often not the best. One strong exception is a plumbing company I've used through Total Protect. They're excellent but I have to fight to get work assigned to them since the want to "rotate " among some losers in their database. I had a terrible experience regarding clothes dryer and finally gave up and bought a new dryer at my total expense. That is NOT the way this is supposed to work. I may change to AHS if things continue badly.
