Sioux City Homeowners Save Over $5 Million in Repairs Through HomeServe Program

September 20, 2021 GMT

SIOUX CITY, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 20, 2021--

Since the City of Sioux City began its partnership with HomeServe USA (HomeServe) in 2014, city residents with HomeServe service plans have now saved over $5.3 million in emergency home repair costs. These are repairs homeowners otherwise would have had to pay for out-of-pocket without one of the available plans under the program.

Through the partnership with HomeServe, Sioux City homeowners have access to optional no-deductible repair service plans that start at $4.99 a month. The service plans free homeowners from the inconvenience and financial burden that often come with water and sewer service line repairs or in-home plumbing emergencies. When a covered repair arises, Sioux City service plan holders get easy access to a local, qualified contractor who can complete the repair quickly and HomeServe pays the contractor directly.

13,523 Sioux City homeowners have purchased an optional service repair plan with most of them signing up for multiple coverage options. Since 2014, HomeServe-approved local contractors have completed repairs that have saved $5.3 million for Sioux City homeowners, funds that have gone back into the local economy. In 2021 alone, this number exceeds $900,000. Sioux City homeowners have plenty to say about their experiences:

  • Donna noted, “Each time that I have had to have a repair done; your employees have been very knowledgeable and courteous. I’m very satisfied with HomeServe!”
  • Marilyn and Steve said, “Austin with Home Serve did an outstanding job, going out of his way to get a service provider on a Sunday afternoon. Thank you, Austin. The service provider did an excellent job, as well.”
  • Matt commented, “Right on the ball from start to finish. As always.”

“Educating homeowners about their responsibility and helping them financially prepare for an emergency is at the heart of our partnership with the city. Sioux City homeowners with a plan get easy access to a vetted and experienced local contractor and are protected from out-of-pocket expenses,” said Tom Rusin, CEO, HomeServe North America. “The number of homeowners in Sioux City taking advantage of the HomeServe plans, the high post-repair satisfaction ratings, and the customer savings topping $5.3 million in just seven years speaks to the benefit of the program.”
