    This by far is the worst home warranty company in NJ.always giving you the run around .and trying to close a claim is totally ridiculous.they always give you some bs excuse.never follow up with customer.and the fly by night contractors they give you never show up. A poor managed co that takes consumers. Money and gives no satisfaction. Never again will I sign up with this co.

    Shopped around home warranty for quite a while, Select sales promises all the good service and coverage, and give you $45 service call and extra free months, do not mention cap, 3 months’ time restriction, sounds good huh, I bought a 5 year policy and signed contract right away.
    My dishwasher stopped working in about two and a half month after contract, they sent a technician, I paid $45 service charge, technician sent them a quote for repair, they reject the quote, they did not call me, I waited for more than a month, the technician told me they reject the quote and do not want to pay him to do the work, I called them, PAUL right away yelled at me, cursed me for a good 10 or more minutes, I called again Julian ask me to find a technician by myself to repair and they will refund, I paid the new technician $235 service charge and $700 parts and labor, he took three trips, took 2 months eventually told me the control panel went bad and it does not worth to repair, I called Select , again another person TIM did nothing but yells and curses, I called again Julian said go ahead to buy a new one and submit receipt. I bought $999.98 new dishwasher, sent paperwork to them, waited another one month, they refund me totally $200.00, said $150.00 is the limit within 3 months, give me $50 more as courtesy.
    Exactly same story for my refrigerator issues.
    I was tiring making calls, depressed for what they did to me – yelling, cursing, the time wasted, should not bring the turmoil to my calm peaceful daily life, all started from this bad choice. I ask for cancelling the policy and get money back, again, after numerous calls and almost two month’s wait, they give me money back with deduction of $65 per month prorate, plus $75 fee, and took the $200 refund back. The prorated monthly fee should be about $32 per month, fee should be $50 according to the contract. What a rip off. I file a claim at BBB, they refused to get back the extra charges. I am working with my credit card company to see what will happen.
    This company is a scam. Please listen to me, do not do business with them. Read online review carefully, many reviews did not state facts for 4-5 starts and I know those are not true, and those with low rating ones having same bad experiences as mine, please think about it yourself. For those suffer what moral and business conducts stand for those people who run this company!

    A company could not be worst. In sales pitch they talk about how they repair or replace. They do not. They give dollar reimbursement equal to 10% or less of the actual repair request and tell you it is for replacement. If you repair and do not replace they will no longer cover item. ie. I had a leak in my AC. Repair cost over $500.00 to replace the part. Because I did not spend thousands to replace the entire AC system, the AC is no longer covered.

    You will also have the unpleasant experience of learning that in the fine print they do not cover the labor.

    In two of the three times I have had to use the warranty, the person sent out had been in business less than on month.

    When a tech comes out, Home Warranty requires a picture of the unit be sent. Every time i watch the tech send the picture. Every time Home Warranty says they did not get the picture so I have to resend. Then Home Warranty takes two weeks to determine coverage.

    The list of issues could go for pages. I would recommend staying as far away from Home Warranty as possible.

    They will not pay for the cost of the repairman. Which is the costly part of the repair process and it is hidden in the warranty, written in 1 small sentence containing 3 words. Horrible service. Appliance has been broken over 3 weeks. If I could rate them -10 I would.

    My washer broke down on July 16th. The first vendor assigned to fix the issue informed me that Select would not pay more than $100 to them to repair the issue. Their minimum is $250 for the trip charge. The second vendor assigned told me that they don’t do business with Select anymore. MANY reviews online state that Select will not pay their vendors invoices for at least a year, if at all. It’s been 3 weeks and I still have a broken “covered” appliance. They now want me to find my own repair service and pay out of pocket. I want a refund of my 10 months of premiums but they will not do that, nor will they commit to anything in writing. No e-mails have a signed name and they claim to be calling and calling me, but no messages or missed calls. This company is the ultimate run-around and I’m sorry if you have been paying them for ‘coverage’ like I have. I spoke just now to their after hours service (Michelle) who said that she hears this story a lot. Even their own reps hate the company. Don’t pay for this service as it will get you nothing in return but headaches and frustration. They try so hard to get you off the phone…

    Paul Tuttle – Claim# SHW112540 – ask if that issue has been resolved when you call about your claim. Good luck

    We purchased extra coverage for our second AC unit, pool and sprinkler system. We paid extra for the premium coverage just in case, but it was pointless with this company. Where do I start…We had a leak from our master bathroom shower that caused damage to our kitchen ceiling to the downstairs. They serviced out to a company that never answered their phone. It took over a month and no one ever was able to come out. We had to hire our own people and they never covered that damage. We paid out of pocket.
    Our upstairs AC unit went out. First, it took over a week for someone they recommended to come out. We had to call our own people. The work the AC company did was not covered because “it was not a mechanical problem”. The dryer filter was broken and it had to be fixed. They said that it was not a mechanical problem therefore it was not covered. We paid out of pocket.
    Then, our garage door spring broke, saying that it was not covered because it was not a mechanical problem. We paid out of pocket.
    Then our sprinkler system stopped working. The people they sent out had no idea what was going on and stated that they did not have the equipment to help us. We were fed up by then and told them to just cancel our policy. Then they told us that we had to pay a $75 cancellation fee! Are you kidding me! DO NOT get this policy unless you like throwing money away. They do NOT cover anything and the companies they work with are not reliable. If they answer their phones, then they come when they please. WROST COMPANY EVER!!!

    Do not waste your money on Select Home Warranty it is worthless they do not cover anything even when you purchase the most expensive coverage. I tried getting multiple things repaI red they found a reason not to repair any. Last staw was my microwave less than 1 1/2 years old they wouldnt even send anyone out. Just offered t send me $95 to replace it. The microwave is 259. Plus tax and installation. Don’t waste your money or time they are crooks
