Filing a claim with Complete Protection home warranty is a simple process as follows:
- Log into your customer account to file a claim online or reach out to CP over the phone.
- The customer service representative provides you with an authorization number.

The technician can bill them directly under this number or alternatively, you can send the invoice and get a reimbursement.
What Inclusions and Exclusions Are There In Complete Home Warranty Contracts?
Complete Protection home warranty plans are ideal for homeowners and landlords, however those getting the plan for their rental property have to pay an additional $5 per month. Only those items explicitly mentioned are covered and only one unit of any specified item is covered. Second units of any system or appliance have to be added by the optional menu.
While Complete Home Protection warranty covers all the parts and components of a system or appliance under the sheet metal skin, it only covers breakdowns due to normal wear and tear or electrical and mechanical failure. Coverage begins only after a 30 day waiting period from the date of purchase of the plan.

COMPLETE APPLIANCE PROTECTION FAQs
Does CP give unlimited coverage on the systems and appliances?
Complete Protection plans are very comprehensive and unique in the market for extensively covering every part under the skin of a device. However, the coverage is not truly unlimited as there are upper limits on the aggregate claims value. These limits are in fact lower than those of some other companies. Yet, their plans require no deductibles to be paid during the service visit, hence the costs could be offset, defending on the scope of the work.
Can I join CP to get my broken system or appliance fixed?
Unfortunately, a home warranty plan only protects functional systems and appliances from future breakdowns due to normal wear and tear. Your items will not be covered unless they can be verified to be in working by a simple home inspection. Though many companies claim to not ask for home inspections, getting one reduces chances of claim denial.
What does Complete Protection not cover?
CP doesn’t cover the following items that many other companies usually do: Pool, spa, sump pump, ductwork, roof repairs, and other structural systems, and sprinkler system.

I have used several home warranty companies. By far CP has been the best over the past 10 years. Never have failed to fix or offer a partial cost of replacement. CP Pays for AC/Heating preventative costs if both done at same time.

I just bought a home not too long ago and I am very happy with my experience with this home warranty company. They actually have a live person on the other line when you call and the people they send out are knowledgable about the repairs. I like the fact that there is no co-pay deductible payment that you have to pay first. Highly recommended! Adam R.

We have had a warranty through Complete Appliance Protection for 8 years and it we have been very satisfied with their service. It has definitely been money well spent. Their customer service has been great. They work with different service companies to provide repairs and general maintenance and sometimes those service providers are not as fast as we’d like in ordering parts needed for repairs, but other than that I have no complaints. Prior to using CAP, we worked with two other home warranty companies, neither of which I’d give a good review. Complete Appliance Protection has far superior service. I highly recommend them. ..View less

We’ve been with Complete Appliance Protection about 4-5yrs now and are completely satisfied. Our home is 16yrs old and appliances started to go. When repairs were needed, it was easy to contact CAP and they always had a technician the next day. When appliances needed to be replaced, they reimbursed very quickly. The monthly payments and what they cover is right on point. Highly recommended.

We had no heat. We called for a repair. The representative spoke to the repairman. They authorized the $700 repair. Two weeks later they revoked it saying it’s not covered in their policy.

Nothing but praise for this wonderful company. I've been with them 8-10 years now, and have used them on a handful of occasions. Never had any issues at all- in fact I've found them to be exceptionally fair and reasonable to deal with. It's wonderful a plan to have for your appliances.

I have been with this company since buying my home almost 4 yrs ago. I have nothing but good things to say about them. They are a courteous, very no hassle, quick response company. I have been pleased every time I have called them. The repair services they use are excellent. They have replaced an AC and refrigerator and all done with top service. You will love them!!!

I have been with Complete Protection for 5 years and I'm very satisfied with the service provided. With a 0 deductible for service calls, I never have the worry about paying out-of-pocket to have someone come and look at the appliance problem. Minor repairs are also covered.

Fast, friendly and reliable! I always use my own technitions and never have a problem getting reimbursed. We have an older home so we've had to use them on several occasions. We ALWAYS get a REAL person to answer the phone and it hasn't mattered what time it was. So very happy to have this service!

I have them the over 8 years, and recently needed the service, as my air condition stopped working, I called them and they assigned technician, the technician gave me a quote of over $2800, the CAP told me that they will give me $350 towards it, I was shocked that I have been paying for last eight years and they offered me $350. you can confirm with them before you buy. I recommend Sears.

This is a great company to work with in terms of zero deductible and easy requests for repair. However, they are not professional when it comes to handle disputes. I had a claim dispute with them a few years ago. I replaced a washer that was not repairable as deemed by their dispatched technician with a refurbished rather than new washer (resulting in a cheaper cost) which they refused to cover in payout. Since that incident they banned me from being able to apply for their coverage. They would not cover my rental properties either. They also would not even allow my husband who is a realtor to refer his clients to them! It could be called a matter of principle in a personal grudge but in a professional world it is childish and improper behavior. Telling a customer ''we are not interested in your business" is also very unprofessional to a point of being rude. ..View less

Great overall plan in the 32825 zip code area. The best part is the $0 deductible and the payout for non-repairable covered items. No hassles, no multiple calls to customer service needed they do a good job getting it right the first time.
