I bought the same cover last year December. I had to call them twice. They came next day and fixed the problem within 30 minutes. No problems at all. Highly recommended.

I'll cancel the policy next month as not interested in paying the full price.

Looks a good deal for first year, in particular the Home Serve 8 which includes a boiler service for £9.95 a month.
I get most of this with home insurance so not for me, but heat added. :)
£30 excess charge for each claim on that policy.
I took a similar deal out a while ago and I have had them out a few times with no hassle.
I also reported a fault that my elderly neighbour was struggling with but she didn't have any cover and they came out and sorted it out as a good will gesture. I thought this was absolutely brilliant!
Has anyone with pitch-fibre drains made a claim with these guys? If so how did you get on? Apparently a number of insurers 'wriggle out' of claims to do with pitch-fibre drains :(

Just to correct everyone, you only have responsibility for your part of the drain before it merges with other households - when your pipe joins a pipe that has COME from elsewhere upstream, it is then classed as 'shared drain' - this is then the responsibility of the water company and in actual fact you should not be using a service such as this on shared drains.
That's absolutely correct. I've had the water company unblock my drain three times now (for free) at the point where it joins the 'shared drain', even though it's within my own boundary.
Which number do you call to unblock your drain? Which water company you are with?

Anglian Water, and the 'Water supply and sewerage service queries and emergencies' number shown here:

http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/household/contact-us/?segment=operations

They normally show up within 24 hours.

The problem with Homeserve is with the tradesmen they use. Some are excellent, but some are truly awful, and you don't know which you're going to get until it's too late.

To be fair, their customer service these days when things go wrong is pretty good if you're insistent, but a dodgy tradesman can do a lot of damage in a short space of time.

I have a totally dysfunctional central heating system thanks to their incompetence (and that includes work by Home Energy Services - which Homeserve own). They've never managed to sort it out after countless visits, and although they've paid compensation it amazes me that so many different people can achieve so little.

This isn't CH cover, of course, but I'd never let Homeserve into the house again.

Been with them before, made all excuse not to repair if you got problem. So cold for me.

Same here - even lied about my boiler control claiming it wasn't part of the boiler - worst company I have ever encountered.

They came out to repair my boiler pronto when it died completely, ended up replacing bits that didn't need replacing which was better for me. But once they got it started again it would run for 2 minutes and go off. They now termed this an "intermittent fault" which they do not cover!

You really do get what you pay for.
Additional - when you sign up you can instruct them to remove "auto-renew" from your account.
Worth having just for one callout. But be warned they are very unreliable. I had THREE no-shows by the plumber before he came to sort out the problem. Very annoying waiting in all day.

Heat, need to look into this properly but does sound very good for the service. Thx op
My mum just got her renewal... £186 after three claims (new sink taps provided and fitted, leaky radiator valve fixed, radiator replaced - not strictly covered but I sourced the radiator and they installed it quite happily). Will cancel and take out new policy in my name.

Any homeowner should have this for the trial year --- no brainer vs one callout fee. They'll fix things you wouldn't bother to call a plumber for, and even provide some of the hardware eg taps.)
My policy is due for renewal in 3 weeks and I received a renewal letter from Severn Trent quoting me £130.32.
We made two claims on the policy in the past year but they were both small jobs. Homeserve were excellent on both occasions so definitely want to buy the policy again so I'll just buy again in my wife's name.

this company are beyond a joke. I took out landlord insurance, and I wasn't sent the cp12, policy documents are only available in hard copy and despite requesting it multiple times via email - still haven't received this, also they sent the gas engineer to my home, not the tenants. Awful - if they can mess something up.. they will. Pretty impressive really.
had a homeserve heating and plumbing cover once, had a leak so called them late morning they advertise a 2 hour response time... they came past 9pm following me calling them all day?. They came past 9pm that night I had a toddler in bed!. Claimed it was a leak under the bath which he 'fixed', the leak continued. Turns out it was a leak from the boiler had to get a plumber out days after. Hardly good.... cold from me :(
the engineer didnt came..but they claimed he did...may be when i was sleeping...as told by other finally i after lot of pursuit and perseverance i manged them to send engineer ; who stayed just for 5 mins (magic).
they forged and provided false servicing documents. probably they can be charged for criminal offense as we are dealing with gas etc...where they can put a family at risk if they miss some critical fault. AVOID THEM;

Edited By: ujags12 on Jan 15, 2016 22:39: spelling mistake
Like many of these breakdown covers,,, it does not include any parts and always has a massive excess , so its win win for them because they will always find something wrong,,,, money , money , money

TopCashBack are a joke, I wouldn't trust them with any large cashback sum.
They probably pocket the £84 themselves and tell you that the cashback was declined or didn't track.

I got my renewal letter through for over £132. I called and got it down to either £54 or £56 - can't remember. Payment by credit card. I called them out twice so reckon still a good deal at under £60 for the year.

That is a decent price! I just thought - can anyone think of other good alternatives (with a good price) for this type of cover?

I probably pay over the odds with British Gas cover but the quality of trades person over those when I had Homeserve many moons ago is the main reason I've stayed with British Gas.

Also make sure if taking a policy with Homeserve that they will fully repair and reinstate the faulty problem. In some cases they may just cover the "emergency" repair....for example I had a faulty fuse box and the tradesman merely removed offending fuse and taped that section over, stating emergency repair had been done. Still had to pay for proper repair to reinstate that section of fuse box, which had I been with BG would of been done on the call out.

I wonder if they would have covered my leaking outside tap? I ended up calling a plumber out last week.
yes they would - I had exactly the same issue as you, called them at 9Am, plumber arrived at 15PM , brand new outside tap. well happy paying 50p a month for this. waiting to see what the quote is for the following year. So yes I can recommend this.

I wonder if they would have covered my leaking outside tap? I ended up calling a plumber out last week.
I had a problem a couple of years ago with a leaking waste pipe and they came out and fixed that no problem, was paying a lot more at the time, so for £6 think its worth taking the insurance out again.

I signed up at £12 for the year. Called them out for a smell in the drains and their response was pour disinfectant down it. I'll not bother with it again.
Realistically, speaking, though, what else could they have done within the terms of the policy?You are covered for incidents relating to your plumbing and drainage. The engineer will resolve the immediate problem by repairing or replacing leaking pipes; clearing blockages; repairing taps; restoring toilet facilities, including repairs to leaking overflows; investigating the causes of noisy pipes and quietening these where they can be accessed.
The engineer will leave a blocked drain running clear by clearing the drain or repairing or replacing the damaged section of waste pipe.
Additional information
We will not cover any additional repair work, For example, a blocked drain will be left running clear but if the drain needs to be realigned to avoid the problem recurring, this is not covered.
I know, but a year on the smell is still there, there must be something causing it and I thought they would do some investigation into it. All they did was run the tap, said the drain was clear and told me to pour disinfectant down it. I poured bottles of the stuff down it. Something must be causing the smell?
That's the trouble with policies like this - they'll deal with an immediate problem, such as a blockage, but they rarely cover dealing with the underlying cause. In your case, it may well be that the problem is with the main drainage system, rather than your own drains. Maybe worth a call to your local water/sewerage company - it won't cost anything to have it investigated, and there might be a simple answer.

Cheers Newbold. I actually had scottish water out last week to clean out the Toby and never thought to ask them about that. It only happens in the main bathroom, no where else in the house so I thought it must be something in the house. I didn't use the main bathroom much as I have an en suite so might be something to do with that too but was happening too regularly to be the trap constantly drying out. I've actually just moved out and have tenants in now. I told them about it and advised the disinfectant remedy and they haven't said anything more so I'll just leave it be for now. I'm sure they will make much more use of the main bathroom so might not have the issue. That reminds me, the policy is due to expire in March so I may as well phone homeserve now and cancel as doesn't apply to landlord.

It's good you didn't get it, I signed up and they sent me the old version, not the newer version 2. Why would I want old tech? In the process of complaining and trying to send it back.
So far no issues at all with Homeserve, got the Tado deal for £9.50 i think per month with the free kit. Paid the extra for installation, took a week to get it as they ship from Germany. Called Tado to chase up, very good customer service, with no issues at all, quick and easy to get hold off. Very good communication from Homeserve to Tado, as had the installers to book a date for installation. So far so good.
Offer expired does any 1 know when offer will come back
@squidge13 it's HomeServe that install the Tado so sounds like the stories that they have changed their ways could be true. I have had a policy with them for a few months and have found their service impeccable so far

I don't think you will get cashback (I didn't). I believe cashback is only for policies without annual service.
£24 for an annual service is great value for money. Normal cost is around £75-£100.

Curiously, what would suggest they wouldn't pay up the cashback? The ad on their site is quite clear http://www.topcashback.co.uk/homeserve/

If you follow the link to HomeServe, it says "Please note: This policy does not include a boiler service. If you would like to take advantage of our free boiler service offer please click here."
Last time they didn't pay cashback on the policy with free service. Not sure if they will this time.

My original post from 5 months ago is still valid (not sure why it was expired):
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/gas-boiler-breakdown-cover-with-an-annual-boiler-service-24-homeserve-1927121

I just wanted a cheap boiler service as my home emergency cover will cover any boiler breakdowns. I had the service in August and the engineer was very knowledgeable and I am very happy with the service. I would say his service was as good as British Gas (I was with BG for 17 years).

There is the added bonus of cashback reducing the price making this (sort of) a better deal. It's a shame this has gone cold because compared to similar offers from other suppliers with £100 excess/call out this is by far the cheapest before the cash back. With the cashback this is a steal even if you just claimed the boiler service and never used the breakdown service!
I stand by this post as being a good deal compared to other similar suppliers offering £100 excess or £100 call out charges.

HOMESERVE 05 Aug 2014 £24.00 PAYABLE IN 30 weeks
Our very old boiler stopped working I had taken out homeserve cover at a cost of about £100 give or take 4 months prior. I called them on a saturday (there was snow outside) they turned up on Sunday spent about 2 hours trying to get it to work needed part ordered it Monday fitted it Tuesday engineer said part alone was £160 cant fault them
Whats the chances of quidco paying out..... as it says it can't be combined with any other offer?
I can't believe a boiler service for £9 after quidco from a gas registered engineer isn't hot. Madness
I will give your a shortened version.

We were with them for 5 years and every year had a service, We have a small leak in the boiler cupboard and despite getting them out 3 times did not diagnose any issue's until the last service where the Gas Registered fitter disconnected it saying there was an issue as he could not do any exhaust test as test valve had rusted solid and the leak was coming from the exhaust pipe gases creating condensation to run down into the boiler because it was not connected properly and exhaust gasses were leaking into the property. Checking back to our paperwork, none of the previous services did not do any test on exhaust gases because of the valve rusted solid. The gas test is a requirement of the service. Despite all this we took them to the Ombudsman and won our case recieving all our money back and compensation.

That is why i can call most of them cowboys as had the last fitter not spotted what the issue was we could have died from carbon monoxide poisoning from the leaving gasses

I would like to vote cold - but will not as may be a deal for someone - as Homeserve are awful to deal with. They have the noisiest call centres and always ask questions trying to catch you out and therefore are able to refuse repairs. Lost a couple of tiles and although once we were in touch with the chap doing the repairs all was OK but Homeserve did everything they could to avoid repairs
I had the same. Dreadful company but if you're persistent they will solve the problem - as written, they try all they can to avoid meeting their obligations under the policy tems.

Be aware that you have to pay the first £10 of each callout.........
Also that there is a list of exclusions - see below. Not very clear in original post.

Showers, domestic appliances, immersion heaters and
sanitary ware
 Drains for which you do not have responsibility for
 External guttering, rainwater downpipes and soakaways
 No hot water due to a breakdown of a water heater, a boiler
or a central heating component
 Repairs to the external water supply pipe
Paying with debit card will still auto renew. Needs to be Maestro :

"If you pay by Direct Debit or credit/debit card, excluding Maestro payments, your cover will automatically renew unless you tell HomeServe otherwise. If you choose any other method of payment you will be sent an invitation to renew prior to your renewal date."

Also if ever had homeserve excluded

thx for spotting that, added to OP

Everyone says avoid this, or avoid that, but i never see people recommending which service to go with for boiler service and cover. I've had my boiler for 4 years now and avoided going with anyone due to the terrible reviews. I have 5 year guarantee, so I'll need cover soon when it runs out. Is there anyone who actually does a decent job for service and cover? Local Gas Man does a thorough service for £50, is that a decent price?
£50 is a good price as the normal price is about £75 (at least that's how much they charge in my area). Just make sure the Engineer is qualified.

All boiler services are not the same. If you take this up - make sure they give your boiler a good clean out, and use a gas flue analyser. My hubby is a gas safe engineer. His average service takes around an hour to do thoroughly - a lot of these contracts they are out within 20 mins leaving all the dust still in the boiler (to cause future problems). They are more of a boiler check-up rather than a service. Also it says the boiler service is only free for the first year. I would imagine that you then have to pay for a boiler service with them to keep your policy valid. Just double check all this before you sign up

Thanks for the tip

HomeServe Cover 8 is better value at £114 per year covering everything like pests and drains, with free boiler servicing and only £50 excess plus £100 quidco = £14.
http://www.homeserve.com/insurance/homeserve-cover-8

There is no Quidco cashback on the deals that include the free boiler service. I nearly ordered the Cover 8 plan thinking this but decided to ask Quidco support to double check, she said it was only for the plans without the free boiler service.

I went through quidco and didn't see the boiler service part
Go to http://www.quidco.com/homeserve/ and should be on the left hand side:
"£15 INCREASED RATE
for Gas Boiler Breakdown Cover"

Yes got that thanks, but when you go through quidco there is no boiler service on the homeserve page included in this price. If you go direct to the homeserve page then you DO see the boiler service option.
If you follow the link from Quido, there is a note which says:
Please Note: This policy does not include a boiler service. If you would like to take advantage of our free boiler service offer please click here.
I clicked that linked. I can see it has been tracked in my Quidco account but there is no amount. Not too bothered if they don't payout since I think £24 is a good deal for a boiler service.
