Review updated:

After doing several repairs for policy holders, and having all calls pre authorized by chw representatives... No payment has been made... All calls were submitted per chw policy, and all policy holders were taken care of, no complaints.

They keep saying "be patient" it has now been over 4 months and no payment to our company has been made.

The accounts payable representative '"stanley goodspeed", claims to not be able to process a check in a timly fashion, with no explanation, just you need to wait.

Caution to all contractors
They do not pay!

    Have anyone resolved their issue as a contractor with this company? It seems like it goes way back, sadly it’s 2019, and I don’t think anything has changed.

    Has anybody tried to find and look for upper management of this company? It seems like the highest contractors can go is the vendors relation management. I was told they’re all managers over there, therefore nobody can step on anybody’s toes. Asked for UPPER management or supervisor, they don’t want to do that as well. I think this is where mostly the problem lies and make everything worse. No new set of eyes to review complaints and issues from contractors and to meditate how the situation came down to. It’s really not good system- bad reviews and lawsuits will keep coming for this company if nobody oversees how their vendors relation people handle contractors.

    @selectodd I just signed a settlement to the lawsuit I had my attorney file with Choices aka HWA's counsel. Everyone under a contractor agreement with them needs to file suit for breach of contract like I did. We won easily as they violated the net 30 payment agreement. Net 30 is 30 calendar days and they will tell you its business days when you call about payment and hell they most of the time don't even pay in 30 business days. This is a breach of contract which voids the entire thing. Meaning no mandatory mediation.

    I am investigating claims by service providers -- including HVAC operators, plumbers, and other contractors -- who have not been paid on claims and/or have been short paid on claims that were performed.

    Choice Home Warranty is a joke. After getting us comfortable with them and allowing them deep in my pocket, boom, no more contact and no payments. I am a contractor. Troy McDermott is full of crap. Choice will pay you for awhile small payments and then get into your pocket and find a reason to cause an argument. As soon as that is done they will no longer take your calls or pay. Contractors run don't walk away from CHW choice home warranty. What a waste. They owe us $15K. Yes I know. Why did we let them get so deep... I don't know. My bad. Customers of CHW choice home warranty. We are coming after you, ... Unfortunately.

    To date, CHW owes my company almost $1000 for several jobs that were authorized and completed. I have arranged a proper collections letter, and have sent it via certified mail. Let's see if they take heed in their actions, or they will find themselves in a courtroom.

    Same thing just happened to us... also filed with BBB and the answer was that Troy had to review it again. They are no longer going to waste my time... They have had it faxed three times... it was authorized but yet they will not pay it. In the contractor agreement it states that you cannot file a lien on the property... well... going to check if my intials were anywhere on that document since I will be left no choice to file a lien against the customers property. I am not going to waste anymore precious time or money on this scam company !! They got mad that we refused to take anymore service calls.. If every contractor in their network would refuse to take their calls... they would have be closed down !!! Stanley Goodspeed treated us the same way... Then calls here and tries to talk over me.. had to inform him that he was not talking to the town idiot. Calling them is a waste of time.. they will just tell you another lie, another few days of runaround... Talk to the customer where you did the work.

    Did work for Choice Home Warranty, 6months and Stanley keeps refusing to pay, all jobs were under the autho limit. I faxed and mailed copies, Stanley keeps giving me the run around, I finally contacted the BBB. Will go after this until there is a solution. We contractors work very hard and don't deserve this.

    Fellow Contractors be aware!
