Sears Home Warranty allows you to choose your own service date if you make a claim. Sears states in its warranty agreement that it will endeavor to provide a reference to a licensed independent contractor within two hours of receiving your rights during normal business hours and within 24 hours for all claims made after work or holidays/weekends. Sears offers a 180-day warranty on all covered repairs, which is one of the best warranties we`ve seen among in-house warranty companies. Can I upgrade my Sears Protection Agreement to a Sears Home Warranty Plan? If you purchased an appliance or other merchandise with a Sears Purchase Protect plan, this contract cannot be transferred to a Sears Home warranty.
