Home Depot/Asurion worthless protection plan




Review of Appliance Repair Specialist

Nightmare! Appliance Repair Specialists is a low-bid third-party for the Asurion/Home Depot Protection Plan in our area. Terrible communication for appointments, limited availability—only 1 technician in our area—long waiting times, and limited skills of technician. In 3 visits, not only didn’t fix washer/dryer problem, but caused new problems—leaking onto kitchen floor that could only be solved by turning the water main off, dryer duct loose and spewing stream. Projection for “new part” at least a week later, no telling if the tech could install it correctly. Only upside is we got our money back for the machine. The technician himself was courteous.


Response from Appliance Repair Specialist:

Thank you for taking the time to respond to our review request. We apologize that our service did not satisfy your expectations. We set a high standard for our company and technicians and are truly sorry to hear that standard was not met in your interaction with us. If you would like to speak with us more in depth about this manner, please feel free to give us a call at 661-587-1300, and/or feel free to send an email to customerservice@ars.repair if you have additional feedback. We appreciate your time and business.

Great guy




Review of Appliance Repair Specialist

Does very good work, I like him. He thoroughly investigated the problem and changed the proper part. However that problem witch I had (6) times went away before he got back with the part. I really do not want this machine, but I love James. Thank you very much. Ron Broberg
