How Super Home Warranty Compares to Other Home Warranty Services

Although Super Home Warranty is at the higher end of the price spectrum and its service request hours are less flexible, it offers certain features not available through many of its competitors. For example, it covers unknown pre-existing conditions and allows you to manage your account via an app.

Super Home Warranty vs ServicePlus

When it comes to premium prices, ServicePlus easily beats Super Home warranty, with average premiums of between $419 and $756 compared against $557.50-$1,649. In another point in its favor, ServicePlus will also offer 2 month’s free coverage and limited roof coverage to new customers. While Super’s coverage extends to unknown pre-existing conditions, ServicePlus will not cover any pre-existing conditions, whether known or unknown. Although Super allows customers to manage their accounts via an app, non-emergency claims are only available during business hours, while ServicePlus offers this service 24/7.

Super Home Warranty vs Global Home Protection

If price is your top priority, these providers are at opposite ends of the price spectrum—with Super quoting us premiums of $557.50-$1,649 and Global Home Protection’s coverage beginning at $299. Customers will face far lower service fees through Global, with rates beginning at $45 compared against Super’s $75. Like many providers in this industry, Global Home Protection doesn’t currently have an app, while Super offers a full-service solution. And, although we received polite and friendly customer service from both providers, we were especially impressed by the speed with which Global responded to our queries and the detail it offered.

Super Home Warranty vs The Home Service Club

Like many companies in this industry, The Home Service Club offers a significantly lower premium than Super, with rates of $552-$799. However, Super does offer a number of features not available with its rival such as covering pre-existing conditions and a comprehensive app. Another important difference between the 2 companies relates to their annual payout caps—while Super has coverage limits of up to $30,000, The Home Service Club places payout caps of between $6,000 and $9,000 depending on the plan you choose. While many similar companies offer 24/7 phone service, both companies operate during business hours, although Super does provide an emergency service.

The Bottom Line

Super Home Warranty provides robust protection for your home’s systems and appliances. Although it is possible to find cheaper coverage elsewhere, we were pleased to see some features often not available through competitors, such as coverage for unknown pre-existing conditions and a comprehensive app.

I haven't been as happy with their customer service as I would like. I've had several problems that have yet to be acknowledged. Claims don't get processed fast enough.

2 years ago

Quality of service and customer service are great. They are extremely helpful. It helps cut down on the value for money because most repairs are covered.

2 years ago

I liked this brand very much and has good pricing. What I don't like is that sometimes some of the prices aren't as they seem, and we had to pay more than expected for repairs.
