I have had dealings with centralmass in the past in which were actually quite suprising.They never let our family down thats for sure. I think they are most likely the home warranty company we always wanted. The day the water line broke in the basement was over the top exciting ,Not in a good way either.The water continued to fill our basement.The warranty company wanted my wife to shut the water off in the basement at the main water valve.The problem was that particular valve is exactly what broke. The agent told us they did not cover the valve in fact they thought the town was responsible for the repair. Because it was 3:30pm in the after noon we were having a very hard time getting in touch with someone to fix this .We made multiple phone calls to local plumbers without any luck.. Finally we got a call back from central mass home warranty..They called to tell us they had someone right down the street who was coming to our house right now to help us with our problem. Just as the lady told us he showed up and within minutes he had the water shut off. He even rigged it so we had water again until we contacted the city of worcester to repair the METER and valve..BIG nightmare, and our insurance sent us a check for $17,000 for the damages.It could have been much worse .If the water level reached the first floor level of our home we might have lost everything we owned to mold .. Central mass helped us above and beyond their call of duty and we sent a thank you letter in C/O Central mass to the town hall and asked for a public thank you dedicated to central mass.We have 5 children in which 3 of them are under 5 years old.. ..View less

Really hadn't had a need for a repair until now. When I went to call for service, they were gone - phone numbers, website, clims wrbsite were all gone or disconnected. Luckily, the repair is one that will not inconvenience us and is fixable by my husband. Hoever, I would like my money back on a pro rated basis because I have paid for the months they were out of business.

We want to thank you personally for requesting information from CMHW in regards to warranty coverages for your home. We are one of the leading Home Warranty companies in the United States. And we are happy to help you. We are currently in the process of assigning your request to one of our qualified agents who will contact you personally within 72 hours and Will also disccuss your coverage options Thank You CMHW http://www.CentralMassHomeWarranty.com My "warranty" went into effect 11/12/2011. I have in front of me the plan from "Pr!meHomePlans". I've been trying to have my Air Conditioning unit repaired for over a week now. I've been in contact with a "John Smith" at the claims department ( 1-877-867-4554 ) since Monday, July 9th. I was initially told that it would be no more than 48 hours that someone from a repair company would be contacting me. On Thursday, July 12th, I called "John Smith" to let him know that I had not heard anything from any repair company. He assured me that PrimeHomePlans was re-negotiating a contract with a local company (Norris Mechanical) and that I would hear from them on Friday, July 13th or no later than today, July 16th. This morning, at 11:40am I called Norris Mechanical and they confirmed that Norris Mechanical does not do ANY home warranty repairs due to the warranty companies not paying the bills. I then called "John Smith" at 1:15pm and had to inform him that Norris Mechanical isn't under contract for repairs with your company. I was put on hold twice for over 4 minutes, then of which the phone call was disconnected. I called back for a third time and asked to speak to "John Smith's" supervisor. He informed me that the supervisors name is Jim (something). I could not speak with "Jim" because he was "on break". I was asked to call back later on in order to speak with "Jim". I will be calling, once again, to speak with "Jim" at 3pm EST. My home warranty claim number is 3588. ..View less

On December 27, 2012, I, in good-faith, entered into a warranty contract with My Home Choice Plans, Prime Home Plans through Central Mass Home Warranty. I negotiated the warranty coverage with your representative, Conrad Aska. He suggested the PrimeHome Premium Annual plan for a price of $489 which I agreed to and paid in full. On April 13, 2012, I called the claims department for a repair to a gas stove cook-top. After speaking with a representative and letting them know that the situation was urgent, as it involved the possibility of the natural gas leaking as it entered the stove, I was assured I would have a repair person call within 24 hours to set up the repair. I did not hear anything within 24 hours so I attempted to call the claims department back. I called at least ten times a day for three days and I only got a busy signal on the claims line (877-867-4554). I also attempted to call the Billing/Customer service line (800-481-1834) several times and each time was greeted by an automated response stating that 'The ring central number you dialed is not yet in service'. I found this very concerning, so after a bit of internet research, I found an additional number to call for Prime Home Plans. After speaking with a representative, she informed me she was the answering service, but she would pass along my information to the claims department and someone would call me soon. I left three messages with that representative - one each day - 4/14, 4/15 and 4/16. I explained how urgent this situation was, but she told me she couldn't do anything but take my name and phone number. I never received a call back from anyone and, as of today, April, 26, 2012, I have still not received a call regarding any of my messages nor my original claim. I also tried calling the representative who sold me the plan, but his number is no longer in service. The phone numbers listed in my agreement (800-391-6554 and 888-747-2334) do not work as I was immediately disconnected from them. I have truly come to believe this company is a scam and have requested to have the pro-rated amount of my contract refunded to me. If I don't receive this money, even though their contract CLEARLY states it will refund your money (pro-rated) if you choose to cancel, I plan on sending this to my lawyer, file every local, state and federal complaint that I can and take them to court to get my money back. I entered this agreement in good-faith and expected them to keep their end of the contract as well. I am extremely disappointed in their complete and total lack of integrity and customer service and cannot recommend them to anyone. ..View less

Mr. Casper, I am happy to hear your problem was resolved. I am guessing this is because you are a war veteran, and you absolutely deserve the special treatment. The rest of us regular people, however, are not treated as well as you were. I did not provide my full name above because I don't find it necessary, but Robert Herrie knows exactly who I am since I have emailed him no less than 30 times asking for my claims to be paid. He claims I am not a customer, as he seems to do with everyone. This is a complete lie, and a total SCAM. I have never worked for Central Mass or any other home warranty company. I am just a regular home owner trying to tell people the truth about this horrible scam. When I was in the process of purchasing my home last year I searched for home warranty companies and decided on Central Mass. I filled out my information on their web site and got a call back from someone named Conrad Aska who said he works for Central Mass Home Warranty. As you can see from his email below, it lists at the bottom of his email the names of both companies, Central Mass and Prime Homes (Robert, please don't try to claim this email is fake because it will make you look even more dishonest, and my lawyer has a copy as well since the home warranty plan was purchased at the closing for my house). Here is the email, look at the bottom of it: From: "Conrad A" Sent: Mon, December 5, 2011 11:50 Subject: Home Warrenty Policy Good Morning, I am send you a copy of the invoice for home warrenty policy. I was advised that the closing will be on December 9th 2011. For anyquestions please call me at anytime. Conrad Aska (305)359-5012 Direct Senior Service Plan Specialist 800.481.1834 Toll Free www.primehomeplans.com www.centralmasshomewarranty.com --------------------------------------- The (305) area code "direct" phone number above used to lead to Mr. Aska only during the time when I was discussing buying the home plan. Now, if you call it, it leads to someone named Kevin who says he is with Prime Home Plans. He will never call you back. He does not call back at all and his number always goes to voicemail. Try it now if you want to know. I have tried to make three claims so far, none of which were answered. Two were for flooding, and one was for no heat. No one ever responds. Robert Herrie claims that I am not a customer of Central Mass Home Warranty. This is his "company line" to all of these complaints. Look at the other reviews on here. My guess is that the only real reviews are the negative ones. I made an official complaint to the Better Business Bureau regarding Central Mass Home Warranty. The BBB attempted to get an explanation out of them several times and they DID NOT RESPOND TO THE BBB. Why didn't you respond to them Robert if you claim to be anything other than a scam artist? Here is the response I received from the BBB: Complaint ID#: 230685 Business Name: Central Mass Home Warranty BBB has made several attempts to contact the business regarding the above referenced complaint. We regret to inform you that we have not received a response from the company. Unfortunately, your BBB can not pursue the matter further. This complaint case is now considered closed UNANSWERED. BBB develops and maintains Reliability Reports on companies in our service area. This information is available to the public and is frequently used by potential customers. In the case of your complaint, the company's failure to promptly give attention to the matter will be reflected in the report we give to consumers about them. If the company has contacted you in the interim, please notify us immediately. Sincerely, Tricia Smith Lead Trade Practices Consultant BBB Complaint Department tsmith@cne.bbb.org --------------------------------- If you want to know more, you can check with the BBB directly. You will get the truth. Short of it is, CENTRAL MASS HOME WARRANTY IS A HUGE SCAM. If you want to give someone your hard earned money and then have them claim that you never gave them any money, and they have nothing to do with you, then you can believe Mr. Robert Herrie and go ahead with Central Mass. Good luck! I hope this helps you all make a decision ..View less

To be fair I cannot rate the repair/replacement service for this company since I never had repairs done. If I could give them a zero overall rating I would. I wanted to purchase a home warrant and after research on this site I entered my information onto their webpage and waited. Later that same day I received an email acknowledging my entry and that someone will get back to me shortly or I can call their number. Oddly the email was also copied to Mr. Herrie at his electrical company. So, yes, Mr. Herrie, I am real regardless of what you may respond with. But 2 days went by without anyone contacting me. Then weeks, and then months. To date, I have not heard from a single soul from this company. What happened?? After much discussion with my husband we decided that we cannot trust a company that will not even call us to obtain our business and money because what will happen when we need service later?? So be warned. Not a responsive company! And Mr. Herrie needs to stop using his expansion excuse for poor/lack of service. How can you own a company and not be able to account for lack of staffing and extended time needed to complete an expansion project over a period of months. Poor planning and lack of experience, that's what. And Mr. Herrie, please don't come back with that you do not see my information on your system and blame me for your computers not tracking contact management well. ..View less

A plumber from a local plumbing company came out and replaced the heating element. Easy fix right? Wrong! Two days later the water became cold again. I then discovered that there was a leak at the bottom of the tank. I don't think the leak had been there before, but I didn't blame the plumber, it was just an old water heater. Anyway, I called CMHW and they got somebody out to my house the very next day. This time though, they just replaced the water heater. I'm sure glad that I didn't need to pay for that new water heater, it was expensive. I'm more than satisfied with their service and highly recommend them to anyone who needs a home warranty. ..View less
