2-10 Home Buyers Warranty Reviews
2-10 Home Buyers Warranty has a B rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). While most reviews are positive, even the best home warranty companies have negative reviews.
“It was easy to start a claim on their website and the contractor called me next day. Our dryer wouldn’t turn on and the repair guy was able to adjust the wiring so it would work until a new part came in. I really appreciate him doing that because I had so much laundry.”—Becca C., 4/14/2021
“I submitted a work order for my refrigerator in May. It is almost August and I am still waiting for the repair.”—Shavonne C., 7/28/2021

The This Old House Reviews Team rated 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty 9.2/10. This company has been in the industry for decades, making it one of the oldest home warranty companies around.
Additionally, it offers an Even If Service Fee Guarantee—a unique value prop that other home warranty companies don’t offer. With this guarantee, if you request service and 2-10 HBW sends a technician to your home and finds that the item in question isn’t covered, you can get a service fee refund. You also only have to pay a service fee for a specific issue one time instead of paying a service fee every time that same appliance or system breaks down.
