Help us reimburse you quickly.
Here are some helpful tips for filing a Tend Home claim so we can quickly reimburse you.
Before you schedule a provider for service, ask:
Are they licensed in your state?
Tend gives you the freedom to choose any qualified and licensed service provider as required by your state to fix your maintenance issue.
Are they certified to repair your appliance/HVAC?
For certain appliances and HVAC systems, the manufacturer requires the technician to be certified with them. Prior to choosing your service provider, you can verify this with your manufacturer by calling their service line or on their website.

Here's what you’ll need to file a claim.
The more documentation you can provide the better! Below is a checklist that will make it quicker for us to approve and reimburse you.
(1) Provider information
Provide following information about your provider on the documents you upload for your claim:
- Name of Business
- Business address
- Phone number
- License number
- Technician Name (ideal, but not required)
(2) Photos and Videos
A picture says a thousand words!
- Take photos of the unit when opened by the technician and submit.
- Upload videos to demonstrate the odd noises coming from a failing unit.
Receipts should include:
- Form of payment - Check number(s), Credit card type
- Date of Payment
- Proof of payment (e.g. shows “Paid” or “Paid in Full” or “Zero Balance”)
(4) Work Orders/Invoices/Estimates
The following details go a long way to being able to quickly approve your claim.
- Detailed diagnosis that states what was wrong, what part/total system failed, and age of unit.
Example: The customer complained that the AC was turning on and off repeatedly and not cooling. Then it stopped completely. Discovered that the compressor had failed and the unit was very low on refrigerant. Unit is 13 years old and very worn. Needs to be replaced.
- Detailed repair notes stating what was done, what part replaced, any other checks or tests performed.
Example: Replaced the expansion valve as it was broken, replaced the condenser coil which was leaking and old.
- Other required information:
Model and serial number of the equipment.
Service call cost or free
If you are filing for a replacement:
- Be sure that your provider describes in detail why the appliance or equipment could not be repaired in the diagnostic. "Not working, old" is not a sufficient reason.
- Also note, that only replacements of equivalent features, size, capacity, brand will be covered.
- Upgrades can be made but Tend will only reimburse the cost of an equivalent unit.
- The model and serial number of BOTH the original and new equipment must be included on the work order, invoice, or receipt.
