What Do People Say About American Home Shield?

“I love using American Home Shield. I love that I pay only my deductible and the rest of what needs to be done is taken care of for me. I love having that peace of mind knowing that I won't be out of something important to me and my family because of not having the money to fix it when it breaks. This is a great service and very much worth having.” Kim, March 2019


“American Home Shield has been a tremendous savings to us each year when one of our appliances breaks down. They are sure to assist us asap. They provide excellent customer service and takes care of their customers. Thank you AHS.” Leslie, March 2019


“We had water leaking from the first floor to the basement. The online claim process with AHS was easy and the tech was out the next day. He replaced the wax ring on the toilet and after the repair we had no more plumbing issues.” Jason, March 2019
