I was given a 2 year warranty from my realtor when I bought my townhouse. During that time I had 3 issues: my dishwasher had to be replaced, my sliding glass door leaked, and my garage door opener stopped working. Each time the had someone out the next day and the problem was fixed, with the exception of the diswasher which took 1 additional day as the repairman had to come back with a replacement.

When we bought our house in Feb 2011, the seller purchased the home warranty for us. I have had 5 call-outs - Microwave, Dishwasher, Electrical socket, HVAC, and Garage door. The two major issues were the microwave, where the control board had to be replaced, and the dishwasher, where the heating element malfunctioned and the entire dishwasher had to be replaced. All but one of the subcontracted technicians responded within 24 hours and all of them called ahead. Some were more prompt than others, but luckily I have a flexible schedule so that wasn't an issue with me. The sub-contractors that had to do the major repairs of the microwave and dishwasher (the same company, Appliance EMT) obviously didn't have the part in stock for the microwave and they don't purchase replacements, so I can't fault them in the least for that. But Appliance EMT ordered the part and installed it as promptly as possible. Alliance sub-contracted the new dishwasher through Sears Commercial whom worked with me to find a suitable replacement and also sub-contracted the removal of the old dishwasher - and disposed of it, and installed the new one. About the only negative thing I can say is it took approximately 2.5-3 weeks from calling Alliance to having a replacement dishwasher. But again, I understand that the process isn't instantaneous - and I did take my time reviewing the different options for a replacement dishwasher. Alliance has been a good company for me, and although I wish the contract prices and work order fees were cheaper, they have definitely saved me money. Now that my "free" year is almost up, I am mulling the idea of purchasing another year and potentially upgrading the service of the contract... ..View less

Fortunately, I still had the salesman's phone number and that still worked. They evidently changed their 24 hour number to an (800) number but didn't tell me. They evidently subcontracted to a local repairman who first gave a 2 week estimate for fixing the oven! What??? First of all, 2 weeks to fix an oven is excessive. Secondly, having no oven for Thanksgiving (11/24) is not acceptable. After several calls, I got the repairman to fix the oven on THANKSGIVING DAY! Needless to say, I am no satisfied with their service. And I only used them once that year! ..View less

I have used this company for several years and my clients have had stellar results. After reading a few comments it looks like poor service personal which, unfortunately is way to common, are the largest part of the issues. We have had great service in the Southern Utah area and i will continue to use Alliance.

He did no work, not a thing, but my idiot wife still paid him his sixty bucks. I have now requested a plumber, but I plan on contacting the company and ask for a sixty dollar credit for the guy who came out and did nothing. If they don't do this, I'll cancel my contract. I was actually hesitant to do this, because I have been pleased with the company, but now that I've read so many horror stories, I'm okay with it. ..View less

I called the warranty company. They sent out a service person from a company named D and D Mechanical to service the unit. The man said it just need FreeON, which he added. A few days later, there was no air blowing from the register. I called D and D. They scheduled an appointment for a few days later. But the unit suddenly started to work so I cancelled the appointment to save them the trip. However, a few days later it stopped working again. So I called Alliance. They said they would send D and D back out. They never called. I called Alliance again. Still heard nothing. I called Alliance every other day and each time they promised someone would be out. I also called D and D also each time. They would never return my phone calls or come out. Finally D and D called and made an appointment to come out last Friday. I was so overjoyed... Except that they never showed up! So it has been in the upper 90's all summer and I have as of August 15th still have not had air conditioning. And now my contract is up as of the 10th and my hope of ever having this taken care of has gone out of the window. They have sent counteless mailers wanting me to renew the contract. Like I am going to do that! ..View less

We called the warranty company again & they sent out Desert Valley Pool & Spa again. He said o.k we are replacing it. About a week later we still did not get the pump. I called the guy & he said we are waiting on the motor? Long story short he did not do anything with my solar pump but took my Filter pump & replaced it with an old rusted one. I called the warranty company to tell them what happened & they said oh solar equipment is not covered. I said well why didn't anyone tell me this? Why did Desert Valley Pool & Spa take my working filter pump & replace it with a used, rusted one? They said they could call Desert Pool & Spa & ask him & I was thinking why? So he can deny it. Since then I have had my a/c unit go out, my water heater & recirculating pump go out. They are replacing my water heater & re-circulating pump this week.

The first tech said it was fine after he adjusted it (mind you, this is a 30-year-old unit). It went out shortly after he left. I called again and threatened to go to the media. The same AC company sent out a more "seasoned" tech who decided that certain parts needed replacement. His report was in total contrast to his co-worker's. The unit obviously needs replacement, so it's just a matter of time before we'll have to call them again. One tech confided that warranty companies have had to replace so many AC units, that they are not making any money! On another recent plumbing claim, the same company that worked on our AC was sent out. Apparently, they think they can do plumbing, too. It took FOUR visits before part of the problem was somewhat resolved. This took place over two weeks. Thank goodness, we had more than one bathroom. Part of the problem necessitated a toilet replacement. When the tech brought a fixture that was not a comparable model, I called the company and argued with them in front of him. He promptly refused to replace it once he heard me threaten to have all of them investigated for deceptive practices, misrepresentation and fraud. In fact, he RAN out the door when he heard me mention collusion between contractor and warranty company. I am presently seeking my service fee reimbursement. One associate claimed that it was included in a cashout check for the toilet. However, in a phone message from them (which I kept), they clearly state that the check is for the toilet and installation costs. I am seriously considering reporting them to the Insurance Division and Attorney General's Office. If you are seeking to deal with a company that is based on good customer service, competency, integrity and respect for their customers, look elsewhere. ..View less

Then the contractor makes something up that we used a wire brush on our valve, tells us something else, so we could pay him to do it the next day, but then 2 months later we are still billed the 60 dollar fee. The customer service says that is part of our contract, but the contract I have says "when service is performed" is when you pay a service fee. Also for an electrical problem of outlets not working along an entire wall, they come hours before their window, and then only fix two outlets. When I had to recall them to fix the remainder of the outlets I had to pay them another service fee because it was "another problem". I can't wait until our year is up, and we're going to tell our realtor to stop recommending this scam of a company. ..View less

I was not aware at the time we would have to continuously & consistently proceeded to call them through out the rest of the summer until the weather cooled down (about September). Last year I had 3 new fan motors installed, approximately 30lbs of freon(my unit holds about 13lbs), 4 new capacitors, and 4-8 new shraeder valves. I have been told my system does not have a consistent leakand the whistling noise when the unit shuts down is normal. (I have come to the realization that the whistling means the system is about to crap out due to low freon and a bad schreader valve (based on experience).

Now they are saying it would have to be a different order and they would charge me additional service fee for any tech to come out. How is it a "different" problem? The Dishwasher, we called about is the SAME problem. We didn't do the evaluation on the dishwasher to determine if the "main" pipe was the problem in the beginning. Their tech. determined that after a "quick" evaluation. Shouldn't they follow through to make sure the problem is fixed completely? Regardless, very very poor customer service and lack of professionalism or loyalty to their customers! Wish we had come across this website before we signed up with them.

Finally received a call from local company stating they would be out "first thing" in the morning. Technician showed up at 10:45 am, not first thing in the morning to me. Technician was in my home for approximately 10 minutes, said that the flame sensor was dirty and flame unit was not lighting correctly. Also said there was a part missing from the furnace (same exact technician serviced the furnace last year for a dirty flame sensor and it was COVERED by Alliance, no mention of missing part, furnace has not been touched by anyone other than this technician!) Technician then said he would have to call in the claim and get the part should be about 2 hours. 6 hours go by and I haven't heard anything. Call the local company and they say I have to call Alliance. Call Alliance and after finally getting through their automated system talk to a very rude representative who continually called me by the wrong name. Alliance claims that the cleaning and replacement of the missing part does not fall under "normal wear & tear". The furnace was "INSPECTED" and "PASSED" for warranty when we purchased the home and warranty. No one has worked on the furnace or done anything to the furnace other than this one technician. How can a furnace be inspected and passed for warranty then be denied for warranty coverage for a missing part that was NEVER there to begin with??? The furnace is still not working. I will have to get my own contractor to fix the problem and I am out $60 for 10 minutes time. I will be canceling my warranty and highly recommend that EVERYONE STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!! ..View less

Then as I explained the problem they said it might not be covered. The representative didn't know what the valve was called - said it was "gate valve" and not covered. Learned that diverter valve is only thing covered in the shower per my contract. Yet I have received no contract so couldn't verify. Asked for a Supervisor (CHRIS) who was rude and ill-tempered. Said it is not comprehensive coverage...yet while waiting on their phone line that's exactly how they sell the warranty as "comprehensive coverage". I demanded my money back and he said I could write in and cancel the policy. I can only guess how that will turn out. This was a VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE! ..View less

Shortly after moving in our ac stopped working, Alliance sent a repair person out who said he had to order a part. A week later the repair came back to install the part, He could not get the ac to work. A week later another repair person did get the ac to work. When the cold weather came, turned on the heat, no heat. Called Alliance, the repair person came and said he had to order a part, a week later a different repair person came and said the part ordered was not needed because the venting to the ac was completely wrong and he did not know how the ac ever worked. Now the water heater is going out and the repair person said he would replace it two days later. On the day of the replacement, Alliance called and said we had to hire a plumber to move the exhisting water softner, the same softner the repair person two days earlier said was fine in its place. Alliance has the WORST customer service reps I have ever talked to.I checked with the Better Business Bureau about the plumbing company, Around the Clock Plumbing, and was told they have several complaints against them. I called Alliance and asked for a different plumbing company because of the complaints with the BBB and was told by the customer serivce rep the BBB complaints are no big deal and if I want my water heater fixed, it WILL be buy round the clock compamy or no one.

I called the manufacter and told her the problem. She stated that it was the pilot that was defective and they knew about it. She sent me to Lowe's. I picked up a free one since it was recalled. She sent me a video on how to install it. I installed in half an hour. No problems with the water heater again. (By the way, did not I mention that when I opened it up, there was no water leak). Alliance told me I have to pay the 60.00 dollars. I told them no way. The technician lied on an offical estimate document about the water leak. They called the company and the company sent a different technician. The technician stated that there was no leak and the water heater was working fine. Alliance, after 2 months and dozens of phone calls, they stated I did not have to pay the 60.00. I am done with Alliance. ..View less
