Customer Testimonials

"The tech called before coming to the house, verified the address and showed up at the exact time he said he’d be there. He was very respectful of my home, cleaned up and was very professional. He quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed it immediately. I am very happy with the technician, his job and the service provided."

Barbara D. | Lowell, MA
We're Totally Satisfied

"We were totally satisfied with Sears Home Services. We requested a service on our dishwasher. Sears scheduled a visit for a service tech. He arrived as scheduled (and called ahead), surveyed the situation and asked us to describe the problem as we saw it. Then he diagnosed the washer and confirmed the problem. He ordered parts to be delivered directly to us, and scheduled a follow up visit to make the repairs. He called ahead on the revisit day, arrived on time, completed the exchange of parts, checked how the washer ran again and cleaned up after himself. Then he went over the repairs with us and asked if we had any questions or additional concerns. We did not. We were totally satisfied with the entire experience."

Marlena Y. | Raleigh, NC
Very Thorough and Explained Everything

"Tony arrived within the stated time frame. He was very thorough and explained what he was doing to diagnose the problem. He took great care to not damage our cabinetry, even though the dishwasher was a very tight fit. I am very happy with the service that we received!"
