What is a Trade Call Fee?

When you have a service claim under an HWA home warranty, you pay a small trade call fee to have a screened service technicians come to your home and diagnose the problem. If an item that is covered in your home warranty contract is causing the problem, the trade call fee would be your only cost to repair or replace the item. Simple as that — there are no additional service fees or expenses, no matter the covered appliance or the time it takes for the repair or replacement. This protects you against the high costs of home and appliance repair while providing you peace of mind.

The amount of the trade call fee varies depending on the plan and by state, but starts as low as $75. This fee is clearly stated on every contract so there are no surprises. Check out these price comparisons to see the typical cost to repair or replace an appliance or mechanical system in your home if you don't have a home warranty policy versus the cost of a trade call fee.

Depending on your contract, trade call fees may be due when your service visit is scheduled or when a contractor visits your home. This will be stated clearly in your contract. Check your contract for current pricing, limits of liability and any exclusions.
