Is Your Broken Appliance Out-of-Warranty? Don’t Worry, You’re Covered

News Release

Assurant Solutions launches Fixed by Assurant to provide repair service and extended coverage when you need it most

ATLANTA, March 31, 2015 –- How frustrating is it to have a major appliance break only to discover that the manufacturer’s warranty has expired?

No need to blow your top. You’re covered.

Assurant Solutions has launched Fixed by Assurant – a website that makes it quick and easy to get an out-of-warranty appliance repaired by a trusted, qualified service technician, and provides protection against further problems for an entire year. The service is available in the continental U.S.

“With Fixed by Assurant, your problem becomes our problem,” said Stephen Ebbett, chief digital officer, Assurant Solutions. “We take the legwork out of finding a qualified, reliable repair person and provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re protected against future surprises. Just go to fixedbyassurant.com and enter the details of your broken appliance. We take care of the rest.”

Fixed by Assurant is backed by a nationwide network of highly-qualified repair technicians all of whom have been screened to ensure they meet rigorous industry and reliability standards. The protection program covers parts and labor relating to the appliance repair, with no deductibles or additional trip charges.

“Replacing a broken appliance is often the first choice people make, but it can be expensive and contributes huge amounts of waste to landfills,” said Ebbett. “Today’s appliances are built to last, with a lifespan of up to 15 years, and most common breakdowns can be easily repaired to keep your life running smoothly.”

Appliance owners can rely on the fact that Assurant Solutions protects more than 80 million appliances, electronics and other major purchases in the U.S. alone, and processes an average of nearly 4,000 warranty claims every hour.
