What is a Service Fee and How Much Does it Cost?

Learn about the Select Home Warranty Service Fee, required on your day-of appointment with a technician. | SHW Blog

Home warranty coverage gives homeowners the ability to pay a small monthly or annual fee for protection against unexpected costs down the line.

In addition to your routine payment to your home warranty provider, there is a day-of service fee owed to the technician. All home warranty providers vary on the exact cost of the day-of service fee.



Service Fee Meaning

A service fee is a payment required at the point of service regardless of other contracted payments. Some industries charge service fees as a percentage of the total contracted payment. Home warranties tend to require a day-of service fee between $75 – $125, depending on the home warranty provider and their network of qualified technicians.

Select Home Warranty Service Fee

Each time an independent service technician is scheduled and dispatched to your home, you will be required to pay the Select Service Call Fee.

The service fee for Select Home Warranty ranges from $75 – $100, depending on the length of your contract.

The service fee is required regardless of whether all or part of the claim is granted, excluded, limited or denied by Select Home Warranty. This cost must be paid at the time and place of your appointment, and failure to pay the service fee will prevent scheduling of any additional service.
