2-10 Home Buyers Warranty compared to Complete Protection 

As with most home warranty companies, a service technician may be required to come to your house to appraise the situation in the event of a claim. With 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, you can expect to pay $85 to $125 for the service fee. With Complete Protection however, no fee is charged. 

That said, despite the name, Complete Protection can’t offer as broad-ranging protection for your house as 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty is unique in their offer to protect your home’s structures along with its appliances and systems. 

Both companies have decent rankings from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty scores a solid “A”, while Complete Protection has earned an “A+”. 

2-10 Home Buyers Warranty compared to Choice Home Warranty

While 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty and Complete Protection both look solid with the BBB, Choice Home Warranty raises some red flags. Not only does the BBB give them a B-, but they also have government action against them in the form of a consumer fraud lawsuit in Arizona. 

The Arizona suit highlights just how important it is to clearly understand exactly what you do and don’t get with your home warranty. It claims that Choice Home Warranty “used contract exclusions, payment caps, and bad-faith refusals to avoid paying for repairs.” 

If you do go with a warranty from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty — or any warranty provider, really — make sure you read your contract thoroughly so you can best understand where your protection starts and stops. 

Fortunately, with a relatively high annual aggregate limit of $25,000, you shouldn’t need to worry about a cap on your yearly payout from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. 

The bottom line

At the end of the day, warranties from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty can offer you broad-spectrum protection and, perhaps more importantly, peace of mind. But don’t skimp on comparing your home warranty options

Comparing plans and prices ensures that if you do decide to purchase a home warranty, you’re getting the best deal and the best protection for your home.
