OTTUMWA, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair service plans, today announced an agreement with Ottumwa Water & Hydro to provide optional water line, sewer line and in-home plumbing repair service plans to homeowners in the Ottumwa area. Information about the plans will be mailed to homeowners starting this week.
HomeServe’s affordable coverage plans offer homeowners protection against the expense and hassle of emergency repairs, including water and sewer service line breaks and interior plumbing problems, which are often not covered by basic homeowner’s insurance policies. HomeServe plan holders will have access to a Repair Hotline that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to bring local, licensed, and insured contractors right to their home for repairs. The plans start at $4.99 a month.
“We have found that many of our customers become frustrated when they discover a leaking water service line, or have a blocked sewer lateral on their property and then discover that this piping is their responsibility to fix as a homeowner. These repairs can be costly, and the unexpected expense of repairing a service line can be a blow to a homeowner’s budget,” said Mike Heffernan, General Manager of Ottumwa Water & Hydro. “Ottumwa Water & Hydro recognized that one way we could assist our customers is to offer them an optional program that would protect them against the cost and hassle of repairs in these instances. We are confident that the program we have created with HomeServe is well-suited for our customers.”
Ottumwa Water & Hydro joins another utility provider in Iowa, Des Moines Water Works, to offer HomeServe’s optional repair service plans to homeowners. HomeServe currently provides plans for 1.6 homeowners throughout the United States and Canada through partnerships with utilities and municipalities and through its own brand.
Ottumwa Water & Hydro customers are receiving details about the new program in the mail this month. For more information, contact HomeServe toll-free at 1-855-676-6261 or visit www.Ottumwaplans.com.
