HMS Complaint - David Stood Up by HMS / Homesure / of Virginia, Inc.
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA -- I strongly warn you to NOT use HMS / Homesure of Virginia, Inc. I have a home warranty with them to cover items such as the AC and appliances and could not be more frustrated with their service. It is currently over 100 degrees in my town and a week ago my AC stopped working. I called to set up an appointment and they said the earliest they could get out was in 4 days. I tried for earlier but they said it would be an emergency charge…etc. so I said OK, I will wait 4 days. On the 4th day, my wife took off work to wait for the repair man and NO ONE SHOWED. So she wasted an entire day. I called later that day to notify them of the problem and they said sorry, must have been a mix up, and we’ll bring someone out in 3 days first thing in the morning. So we wait 3 more days, my wife takes off the morning and guess what? NO ONE SHOWS. We called the repair company directly (not HMS / Homesure of Virginia, Inc.) and they said they never received the work order. I called HMS / Homesure of Virginia, Inc. to notify them of the problem. They apologized again, and said they would *kindly* incur the emergency fee this time and send someone out by the end of the day. I told them *sorry* was OK after the first mistake, but after the second mistake IN THE SAME WEEK they needed to compensate me for my wasted time. I didn’t care how they did it, a couple months free warranty service, a gift basket,…etc., whatever. They said NO and read me a bunch of legal mess. I said fine, I want to cancel my policy then for lack of performance, and they said OK, but that there is a TWENTY FIVE dollar CANCELLATION FEE --- WHEN THEY WERE AT FAULT!!!! I dealt with Christopher Spence x1034 and Aldine who were both polite but COMPLETELY unhelpful. USE ANOTHER COMPANY.
