American Home Shield (AHS)

Great experience. I was very impressed with the timeliness of response and the repair. The Techs were helpful in explaining things and they were courteous. I will definitely recommend AHS to my neighbors and homeowner friends. Thank you!

American Home Shield (AHS)

This company insisted that they came to my home and made repairs through my home warranty provider American Home Shields. Julio requested photos of outlets by text and never showed up to do the actual repair. Clearwire, Inc. Electrician located in East San Jose, owner Luis Franco and worker Julio continues to insist the company made repairs to my resident with AHS. To that end, I called Luis Franco to request proof of work documentation and he would not provide me with info. It is mine believe a company/person that will LIE will also a STEAL. Clearwire, Inc. lacks business ethics and NOT to be trusted on your property.

American Home Shield (AHS)

It is impossible to get AHS on the phone - I prefer calling to on line requests so I can explain the problem and make sure I\'m covered. There is no way to get feedback ffrom online form. Also I am not happy with some of the contractors in appearance and professionalism. Some are ok some are not. It used to be easier to get service within 24-48 hours and this timeline being met has not occurred for months.

Contractor did a great job putting in a new furnace. It was in 48 hours after diagnosis and AHS was really helpful in getting it installed and I knew what I was responsible for. Furthermore, I was able to request the HVAC company I wanted as they had done work for me previously.

American Home Shield (AHS)

I recently cancelled my policy with AHS after having been a member for over 14 years. The recent unprofessionalism exhibited by both AHS and the recommended plumbing company Amazing Plummers was disturbing. Not only did the plumber state that they didn't know if they could correct the plumbing issue, but wanted me to pay $1,100 to have a mold issue resolved BEFORE they would decide if they would even fix the issue. When I mentioned this situation to AHS, they not only agreed with the contractor, but no representative from the company even bothers to call me to determine what my concerns regarding the matter were. Not a professional company, plus the issue that contractor are paid for being listed by AHS.

American Home Shield makes it so easy to address problems in my home and in my rentals!! The online service request is easy to use. I have it on my phone for quick access in case I need to set up a service request. The contractors always get back to me quickly and schedule at times that work for me or my renters. Bill pay is also super easy as I have autopay on my bank account monthly!!
