    My current homeowners warranty insurance sucks. Anyone have a suggestion for a good one that is reasonable? I need the home covered (appliances, plumbing etc) as well as a salt water pool and equipment. Thanks.

    P.s. I currently have American Home Shield. Terrible.

    Do you qualify for USAA's insurance plans? I always recommend them, but you have to be in the military or certain branches of the government to qualify (or have an immediate family member who qualifies).

    Well without knowing why they suck its hard to say whether another company is better. However, I've had Allstate, State Farm and now Liberty Mutual. All have been good in terms of customer service.

    At least you don't live in Florida where anyone who will insure you is a good company.:(

    I'm looking at Fidelity National Home Warranty. Anyone have this?

    Also, sorry if I was confusing. I mean home warranty insurance such as repairs on appliances or plumbing or the pool etc...

    LOLz. Surely you jest. And before you respond, I spent 10 years in the service contract/extended warranty industry as a VP. Your state may have "licensing" requirements but they hardly eliminate the bad companies.

    Sorry, I originally thought OP was talking about hazard insurance--no problems with service contract/extended warranty industry. Those pesky hurricanes have scared off all the major casualty insurance companies.
