Pricing and Onboarding Deals
First Premier has 2 plans to choose from, the Premier and the Platinum plans. In terms of industry norms, First Premier offers competitive pricing. What we really like about these plans is that they’re very inclusive. If you opt for the more basic plan, you’ll still have your electrical and plumbing systems covered, as well as ductwork and most major appliances. The Platinum Plan offers even more inclusive coverage, spanning just about every home system and appliance you can think of. What’s more, First Premier offers coverage for 2 A/C and heating systems with its Platinum Plan, something you generally have to pay extra for.
If you want to include add-ons to your plan, First Premier has multiple options that range from less than $3 a month up to $12.50, depending on the item in question. For new customers, First Premier has an attractive promotion that gives you $100 off plus 2 months free. You’ll also get free roof coverage added in. First Premier offers discounts for seniors and veterans.
First Premier allows you to cancel your policy within the first 30 days for a full refund. After that, it will provide a pro-rated refund and charge a service fee if necessary.
Contractors and Service
While it doesn’t provide an exact figure, First Premier has a wide network of contractors spread out across the country. What’s more, First Premier thoroughly screens each of its technicians before including them in the team, so you know you’re getting someone who is trained, skilled, and reliable.
First Premier has a 24/7 claims department, a big plus for this type of service. You can call in a claim at any time. Generally, a technician will arrive within 2 days. In case of an emergency, the situation will be expedited. Service fees range from $50-$100 depending on your location. First Premier does not mention whether home inspection or maintenance records are required to receive a contract or to carry out repairs.
