North Myrtle Beach, SC–November 22, 2016 – HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair solutions, today announced the launch of its partnership with the City of North Myrtle Beach to offer optional service plans for exterior water and sewer lines and in-home plumbing repairs to North Myrtle Beach homeowners.
The plans offered through HomeServe provide North Myrtle Beach homeowners protection against the expense and inconvenience of emergency repairs to water and sewer service line breaks that occur on their side of their property line and in-home plumbing problems. Homeowners often assume that these kinds of emergency repairs are covered by basic homeowner’s insurance or their local municipality; however, water and sewer service line repairs on residential property are typically the homeowner’s responsibility to manage.
The City of North Myrtle Beach joins six other municipalities and water systems around South Carolina in selecting HomeServe as the provider of this optional residential service program. More than 56,000 homeowners in South Carolina hold service plans through HomeServe to help manage a variety of household repair needs.
“A water line repair can take a toll on a homeowner’s wallet, so we are pleased to partner with HomeServe to extend this option to homeowners to protect themselves,” said North Myrtle Beach Finance Director Randy Wright.
“We’re happy to partner with the City of North Myrtle Beach to extend this convenient option to residential customers,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “Our service plans protect customers from having to absorb the high costs of this type of emergency repair.”
HomeServe plan holders have access to a Repair Hotline that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year as well as local area licensed and insured contractors available to come to their home to accomplish repairs. The Water Service Line Coverage is available for a $6.99 monthly fee, while the Sewer/Septic Line coverage is $10.49 per month and the Interior Pluming and Drainage System Coverage is $12.99 monthly. Convenient payment options are available directly to HomeServe.
North Myrtle Beach homeowners will receive additional details about the optional service plans in the mail. Homeowners can also visit www.HomeServeUSA.com or call 1-888-212-0294 for more information.
