A story of unexpected expenses
One day, homeowner Jimmy noticed low water pressure and some general plumbing issues in his kitchen.
Forgetting that he had purchased protection from IGS Home Warranty, Jimmy called a local plumbing company to come out and inspect the problem. The contractor charged him $150 to simply come out and take a look at the issue, and on top of that, the contractor gave an initial quote of $1,500 – $2,000 to fix the issue.
The quote was a lot higher than Jimmy expected. And the extra expenses came at a time when his family was anticipating some fairly high medical bills to hit their budget.
Leveraging expert opinion
About a week later, Jimmy happened to remember that he had signed up for a home warranty plan with Ryan, who also happens to be a member of his church.
Jimmy called Ryan and asked for some advice. Ryan was happy to help and connected him with a coworker at IGS Home Warranty.
Upon reaching out, IGS Home Services sent a local contracting partner, Puckett Plumbing, Heating, Air and Electrical, to his house.
Thanks to his home warranty plan, the issue was repaired and Jimmy didn’t have to worry about a thing. The costs were covered.
“It was great to know that I could lean on IGS Home Warranty, and Ryan, for this situation. Because of their help, our family was spared a lot of grief and money at a time when we really needed it.” – Jimmy
