I have had ahs for about 5yrs now overall the service has been good, I have had good and bad contractors,one i had for my a/c was terrible, the tech did not seem like he wanted to do the work and lied about access to my house, when i called the company re their tech they took up for him, the next time i had a/c problems i told ahs i did not want that company and was given a different company, this company was very helpful and professional. I have used ahs many times during this 5 yr period and they have always been very helpful. Today I had to call them re my washer, last month my garage door broke, i called for service and a company was dispatched the springs on my garage door broke as this was not covered under my warranty ahs did not pay for the repair, the company told me i didn't have to pay the service fee if they did the work which i let them do, i did not know whether i pay the fee or not the company bills ahs and they pay the company and ahs will charge you for the fee anyway,well today when i called about my washer i was told about the previous fee, i expressed to the agent i did not have money to pay the previous fee and the new fee for my washer, agent told me she could send me card to cover my fee for the washer but i would still have to pay the previous fee before i could go with my next request, so i told them to cancel request for my washer, at this time i was mad because the garage door tech lied about me not having to pay service fee to them they just billed ahs and knew ahs would get money from me i called garage door company and expressed my displeasure with them to no avail i called ahs back and spoke to a different agent who went ahead and processed the request for my washer and told me when i received the card for the previous fee just call back and they will apply the card then, so now all i have to pay is for the tech to come out for my washer.

The lower the cost average, the higher the call volume. High volume and low dollars does not make for a satisfactory business. The real customer is the home warranty company. Also, the reason the turnaround time on parts is so long, is that if we supplied the parts, we could not charge The warranty company any more than if than if we didn't supply it. Therefore, we would just let purchasing send the parts from wherever they chose, without overnight shipping. We tried offering the service to customers of picking up the parts locally for extra $ but that is a no no and just made everyone angry. So, everyone just had to wait. There was little or no more money coming from the repair after the service fee is collected from the customer. You might ask why we worked for them. It was to try to sell good service, solid equipment, at reasonable prices outside of the home warranty policies. As times have gotten tougher, that has become less frequent, as the complaints and hassles have increased.
