Warrantech, do not do business with this company. I purchased a 5 year warranty with this for three separate...
DO NOT PURCHASE A WARRANTY from this group. Read the other reviews there are so many out on the web about...
After two hours on the phone yesterday and countless e-mails, I can only say that Warrantech's customer "service" is awful. There warranty is also not worth the paper it's printed on. Basically, I had a single key that wasn't working on my laptop. I had properly registered my warranty.
Despite these facts, I was required to e-mail three times so that they could "confirm" my warranty|. No one ever got back to me about "confirming" the contract". Instead, I called and called and e-mailed, .
Eventually, I was told that I could send the laptop at my expense so that they could review the problem". Then, if the problem was resolveable and they had the part the key would be replaced|.
This whole process would take a minimum of two weeks and would, again, be at my cost..
When I eventually spoke with a representative I was told this was "company policy;." Great policy - be careful and do not purchase their warranties, which are sold through J&R music.
Warrentech says they provide fast in home service...My television has been broke over a month. They still havent approved the repair!. They have so many hoops to jump thru that they are a very poor company'. I would not recommend anyone buy an extended warranty on anything that has their name on it/. Very very poor company, . I have a Sony 52 inch television that repairman comes out and has to take my tv to the shop to "reproduce" the defect'. Now it has been gone for two weeks and still not even an estimate for what it would take to fix it/. Very Very Poor Service?. Do Not do business with them it's a total waste of money.
I purchased an "in-home" warranty for my 55" Sony and the TV stopped working after four years. There was a flashing light that allowed me to identify the issue. After my first call with Warrantech I was told that they would send me the part and I could install it myself. So much for "in-home" service but that was actually the best part of dealing with them and it would only get worse.
After waiting a week for the part and not receiving anything I made another call to have the package tracked. The next rep told me that the part was not covered and it is covered by a different warranty. J&R Music World did not offer any other alternative warranties that could be purchased. There were no exclusions in their policy so this should not have been declined.
I failed to mention that no one ever called or emailed me to notify that the part would no longer be sent. In my experience, Warrantech reps are either incompetent, liars or both. Of course there is always the possibility that they are told to give any one who calls the runaround.
I wish I researched reviews about RepairMaster / Warrantech before I purchased the TV warranty four years ago. I am highly disappointed that J&R would associate themselves with this kind of company. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase a RepairMaster policy again and will tell everyone to do the same.
So i bought a tv from hhgregg back in November no complaints with that but i decided i didn't want the extended warr. that warantech offered.i called them they said i would get a refund sense it was within 30days hear it is over 3 months and still getting the run around.called them back they told me a had to send a letter in saying a wanted to cancel did it.still nothing called back supervisor was supposed to call a week later hear i am on the phone with them again still going through the same.
Purchased RepairMaster 5 year warranty at the time of purchasing KitchenAid KERS807ss range. Two and a half years later we had some water boil over on the stovetop. It appears to have damaged electronics in the front panel controls (must not have been sealed correctly). RepairMaster and their authorized repair facility say they will fix it. However, after over 4 months our range is still not fixed. Whirlpool(makers of KitchenAid) does not respond to repair facility's request for correct part numbers to repair oven. We have been more than patient not having our range working for over 4 months and RepairMaster insists they will fix it. Talk is cheap! I would not, currently, recommend RepairMaster/KitchenAid or Whirlpool to anyone... We have 15 guests coming for Thanksgiving tomorrow and our range is still not working.
I called these guys and it been a month and they haven't done a single thing. There strategy seems to be to just give you the round around in the hopes that you will eventually give up. Do not ever buy an extended warranty from these guys!
I also spoke with one of there supervisors and he assured me he would call be back guess what? It never happened, now an entire month has passed and here I am once again waiting on the phone being told their customer service is busy. Expect to wait a least 15 minutes before you talk to anyone and they expect them to say "well this is the first time i'm hearing about this.." and then proceed to jack you around.
Picture quality became poor and Warrantech was called on 2/25/08. Teresa advised to contact Mitsubishi. Tried contacting Mitsubishi direct and only found sales infor sites and email sites requesting fees for information. Recalled Warrantech on 2/27/08 and talked to Veronica who gave me a claim number [protected]-TTA and said that DTR Technologies would call me regarding setting up an appointmnet. No call came in from DTR, so on 2/29/08 I called Warrantech again and Yvonne put me on hold for several minutes and then came back and said that she could not get hold of DTR but that she would continue trying and would call me back later in the day when she got hold of them. No phone call came and no service is anticipated yet at this time. The Warrantech extended service plan is set to expire 5/26/08 and resollution of this problem is required immediately.
My contract with this home warranty company expired on Oct 2nd. I usually get a reminder in the mail or a phone call to renew this contract but this year I got the letter with a date of Oct 14th. When I called the company to place a claim, they told me that my policy was expired and I had to wait for 30days before I could place a claim.
Besides that, my current policy plan that I have was discontinued which they didnt let me know till I called them. I explained to them that this was not good customer service on their part to not to let their customers know about discontinuing a product that they offered their customers in the past.
I was told that their manager Bryan A Myers would contact me but he never did so I called them back again, and got him on the phone and he was totally discourteous and sticking to his policy. He even told me that I could take my business elsewhere. No wonder a company like this has shares at 0.43 I believe that people who kept him in that position should be held accountable for this companys poor performance. some of his staff were more courteous than he was
For him, his policy was more important than retaining a customer, Penny wise pound foolish thats the best saying that befits him! His boss is Evan Rothman who I will be contacting next. I want to see if he would like to get his earnings per share higher than the mere .43 cents!
We experienced horrible service from Warrantech in trying to get them to replace our 56" DLP TV after the serviceman indicated that the light generator was no longer available and indicated it could not be repaired. We called over and over again to no avail, had been placed on hold for extended periods of time, and received promises that a replacement would be ordered yet the delivery date was never confirmed. Finally, we posted a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB has numerous complaints for Warrantech and has given them an "F" rating. The BBB was quick to respond to our complaint and forwarded information about the complaint to Warrantech. We immediately noticed a difference in the response that we received from Warrantech. Within a few weeks, we received a comparable replacement TV. We are very appreciative of the BBB and advise others to inform them of the problems they have experienced with Warrantech.
After trying to get TV fixed for over 60 DAYS, WAS OFFERED A REPLACEMENT WHICH IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE!! It is now another 30 DAYs and still have no resolution and can not speak to a supervisor...seems to be a HUGE issue to even get a supervisor on the phone. Asked three times to speak to a supervisor in March on the same call and young man refused to let me and said one would call me, have yet to get that call. Called back today and insisted on speaking to a supervisor whom after sitting on hold forever wrung into VOICEMAIL! What in the world is wrong with this company? 90 Days later NO RESOLUTIOPN and nothing they say is true?
After to calling Warrantech about my broken TiVo, they told me to send the unit to another company that would repair it. After a over a week I called Warrantech and they didn't know the status of my TiVo. They told me to call the repair company that as I found out doesn't even repair products, they just test for failure, then Warrantech either sends you a new product or a check/voucher for a new unit. I had to call to find out the status every time. They never contacted me. They originally said it would take 7-12 days for the whole process. It looks like it's going to take more like 28 days not including weekends and 2 holidays. On top of that I was informed that the information on my TiVo hard will not be returned to me. And now I'm trying to retrieve the cable card that was inside my original TiVo. They informed me that they will not reimburse me for the cable card after I was never told to remove the cablecard before sending the unit out. I'm waiting on hold now to talk to a third person. This is unacceptable business. If you have a choice, don't get Warrantech replacement service. Warrantech has terrible service.
We bought a under-counter refrigerator on-line from the Beverage Factory, with a warranty from Warrantech. The appliance broke down before the 2-year warranty was up. We have spent numerous hours on the phone with the warranty company who has given us the run-around since January (this is June now). We give them the information they want, and then each time add a different little piece of information they need to reimburse us the $481 that we spent fixing this appliance. They are obviously scammers and never want to pay up.
I bought a 5 year protection plan for my satellite radio. The radio malfunctioned just after the manufacturer's one year warranty expired. I have contacted Repairmaster numerous times over the past 7 weeks. The 8 representatives I've spoken to so far all say the same thing. " We don't have a record of your claim, but we'll process this and it should take ( depending on who you talk to ) 24-48 hours, 3-5 business days.", etc.
[redacted].com has a number of similar complaints. Since they take your money and do nothing else but stall and lie, it certainly appears their "protection plans " are worthless. Needless to say this unscrupulous technically criminal outfit should be avoided like a dreaded disease.
After purchasing a Brandsmart Service agreement for my Frigidaire Professional Series refrigerator, I have unfortunately had to make way too many repair calls in the first 24 months after purchase. The product itself should be faulted, but the Brandsmart relationship with the service provider / administrator, a company called Warrantech in Texas, is cumbersome, unresponsive, rigid, and bureaucratic. Each time you call Brandsmart for a service call, you are directed thorough the usual multiple VRU options, only to finally reach a live agent who then tell s you to call Warrantech to get an authorization number, then call back with the authorization number to be placed in a queue for a service call. The Warrantech agents and managers are the worst part of the whole process, requiring you to give them information you have already given them several times (like detailed model # and serial #) all of which they already have, but required your to provide them every time or they REFUSE to authorize the service you have paid for, even while several hundred dollars worth of frozen meats and seafood are melting all over your kitchen floor. Explaining to them that you are at work and do not happen to carry the model #'s and serial #'s of all your home appliances and electronics with you in your wallet provides no relief. They (in this case rep Marty and her manager Bill) tell you to call back when you go home and have the info. They are otherwise unconcerned of your material loss in the meantime or that you have to work, and both repeatedly REFUSE to transfer your call to a higher level manager and only snidely repeat over and over again to read your service agreement and that if you don't provide them with the information they acknowledge they already have EVEN THOUGH they have verified your identity, your address, your phone #, and that you have a valid current maintenance agreement with them, you get no service. BE WARNED. If you are considering buying any appliance agreement from Brandsmart or any other retailer, find out if it is really an agreement with Warrantech, and if so, consider other options.
I have an extended warranty claim in process with the warranty provider, Warrantec on my 2001 isuzu Rodeo and am experiencing very negative and seemingly secretive goings on with these people.
I would like to post a brief summary for your readers, so that others may avoid this, less than scrupulous company.
How should I proceed?
I have been receiving harassing phone calls for about 8 months now regarding my expired automobile warranty. ...
