Why Choose Cinch Home Services?

Cinch Home Services is among the first home warranty companies to leverage advanced technologies. They have integrated their claims process with Amazon Alexa so that customers can file claims through voice commands. Customers can also contact the assigned service technician the same way.

Cinch Home Services offers a 180 day workmanship guarantee which means that additional repairs if needed on the same issue will occur at no extra cost. They are one of the few companies to cover breakdowns arising from pre-existing issues that you had no knowledge of. Breakdowns due to rusting of appliances are also covered.

Cinch Home Services has three home warranty plans, a Built In Systems Plan, an Appliance Plan and a comprehensive Complete Home Plan. They also provide a sample contract which clearly spells out the extent of coverage and exclusions.

Final Word

While Cinch Home Services offers affordable home warranty plans, the plans aren’t pre-designed to fit various budgets. They also cover only 22 systems and appliances. However, the rebranding exercise has only served to heighten Cinch Home Services’ customer centric approach. Improved service turnaround time, as well as an intuitive and simple website and app experience make the company a forerunner of the home warranty industry in 2020.

Frequently Asked Questions?

Having a home warranty plan from Cinch Home Services on your listed properties can help you close deals faster. Homes covered by warranties while on the market are considered safer purchases by buyers. Especially if the homes you sell are older, home warranty brings the assurance that breakdowns of systems and appliances will be addressed quickly. You can also field your clients’ calls on these matters to Cinch Home Services as it is their job to carry out the repairs on a covered home.

Cinch Home Services offers three types of plans with varying coverage. The plans can be purchased by making payments on a monthly or annual basis. The premium is paid right away while the deductible is paid per visit by a contractor. The trade service fee is much lower than the cost of any repair.
