First American Home Warranty Reviews: Customer Service, Coverage, Plans, & More

First American Home Warranty (FAHW) offers budget-friendly plans that kick in 30 days after you sign the contract. They’ve been in business since 1984 and boast more than 500,000 customers. We were less than impressed with their bare bones website, which offers limited information pertaining to their benefits and other important details.

Home Service Club Reviews: Customer Service, Prices, Complaints, & More

Does a home warranty seem like a scam to you? Many people associate a home warranty with paying a monthly premium and then when an appliance breaks, the technician comes and “fixes” it. Then, a week later it’s broken again. Not all home warranties are like this. The Home Service Club (HSC) was previously in our top three for Best Home Warranty and had one of the best reputations in the warranty business. But what happened that made us remove the company from our top three? Learn more about this company’s pros and cons in The Home Service Club Reviews.
