OH NO! It’s Time to File a Claim! — But It’s Not What You Think

Ever dread calling in to file a claim? It’s just that feeling that comes with filing a claim with any company: You assume it’s going to be a frustrating process. Here’s why you can take that dread and throw it right out the window for claims with America’s Preferred Home Warranty (APHW).

Easier Than You Think

APHW offers a 3-step claims process.

1. File the claim (by phone or online) to obtain a claim number.

2. Schedule ANY licensed contractor to visit and diagnose the issue at a time that’s convenient for you, and let us speak with them prior to any repairs to determine your approval.

“We ask your contractor questions regarding the system or appliance they’re looking at, specifically what parts have failed, and what their estimate is for repair or replacement,” said APHW Customer Service Supervisor Michelle. “Then we research the parts ourselves and make a determination based on the information provided, and discuss that determination with the customer, as well as options for how to use their approved amount.”

3. Once the work is completed, you (or your contractor) have several options for FAST payment.

The Details

Now you’re probably thinking, “Yeah, but you’ll probably say whatever you can to get out of paying.”

Here’s the thing: We very literally go by our warranty contract. If you’ve given it a read (less than 3 total pages of actual Terms and Conditions—in what’s actually a pretty understandable format—followed by individual state requirements) then you know what we can and can’t do before you even file a claim. Seriously!
