Home Warranty Reviews from 2-10 HBW Customers
What do people say about 2-10 HBW?
I had Choice Home Warranty at first and that was the worst home warranty. When I first got 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, as soon as I got with them, my AC unit went out and I was without air for the whole month of July. It was hot, we had to move in my basement. The contractor came out and he told me that my condenser and something else went out, that it was just as good as me having to get a new one, because nobody was gonna have those parts anymore. They tried to find the part but they couldn’t find them, and then they just gave me another AC unit, and it was a good one. It was Goodman. If that had been Choice Home Warranty, they would have probably said, "It's been too soon. We're not gonna do that." Or if they did do it, "We'll pay half and you have to pay for the rest." But 2-10 took care of me, so I'm gonna be a life-long customer. READ MORE

2-10 has made our lives a lot easier. I usually make claims online and the website is good. I was given a time frame of 24 hours for my claim and it was met. My refrigerator issue led a full part replacement, and my husband was pleased with
