Fixd Repair (Fixd) has announced today that it has launched its home warranty and on-demand home services program. Real Estate Professionals and homeowners can now purchase home warranty plans within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW).
Homeowners without a home warranty can still utilize the Mobile app and online tool to book an affordable home service professional. Fixd home services include HVAC, electrical, plumbing, appliance repair, pool & spa, and garage door repair with plans to add additional services in 2017.
This one of a kind new company is combining home warranty and on-demand home service to save consumers from the unexpected cost of repairs and to give homeowners a property management tool that will allow them to book a qualified, insured, and background checked pro without the hassle of searching for one and without being price gouged. Realtors using Fixd finally have a full-service solution to provide to clients that won’t stop after the home warranty expires. Service professionals (pros) that do great work but don’t have large advertising budgets can now pick up more jobs for free.
The majority of home warranty programs want consumers to call an 800 number or use an online system that typically lands you on the phone with a representative. Fixd is taking an “Uber” like approach to dispatching service pros. Customers with Fixd home warranty plans can file claims through the app or online. The jobs are sent to the Pro network to pick up. Customers using the app can view the Pro details, securely chat with and track their Pro, sign and approve work orders, and pay when the work is complete. The free, user-friendly app is a completely fresh look for the home warranty industry and puts a twist on the on-demand services industry.
“Our goal is to change the way people perceive home warranties. We believe our
technology eliminates the headaches associated with scheduling service pros and
the inconvenience of having to sit around waiting for a technician to show up,” says
Brandon Bohannan, Co-founder of Fixd. “Unlike other home warranty programs, if
something is not covered we don’t leave it up to the repair company to give our
homeowner an astronomical quote to fix the issue, we are giving customers our low
warranty repair rates and working directly with them to solve the issue right then
Many consumers and homeowners have used a home service listing like Angie’s List or Home Advisor to connect with service Pros. The problem with these types of lists is that they simply act as a glorified Yellow Pages. Homeowners using list-based services still have to spend time sorting through Pros, and decide on quotes that typically vary quite a bit. Not only is this frustrating, but it leaves the customers unsure about the fair market value of the job, and the cost of the repairs or services.
“Our program allows people with one or multiple properties to manage the service
for their homes without having to wonder what the quality of work will be and if
they are getting ripped off,” says Evan Myers, Co-Founder of Fixd. “We want to
“Uberize” home services by setting a fair market value for repairs, where pros make
enough money to be successful and homeowners are not overcharged.” Myers adds,
“We want our customers to feel confident when something in their home breaks
they can open our app, book a pro, track the arrival and pay all on the app and with
the comfort of knowing, if something goes wrong, Fixd is going to back it up.”
Whether a homeowner needs services or repairs, a real estate agent wants something more to offer their clients, or a service technician needs an ethical, stable company to work with, Fixd Repair offers it all. Fixd’s innovative and contemporary take on the home warranty and home services industry brings the consumer into the 21st century with ease.
