What Underground Protection customers have to say

"I live in an older home and all utilities are underground. I had already experienced problems, so I was open to getting protection. Underground Protection saved me $3,000 in repair costs."
–Mary Heinichen

"Service was great and the technicians were very nice. They had our power back on within two hours and came back in the morning to complete the repairs. We think the protection is definitely worth having!"
–Mrs. Walter Clements

"I am very satisfied with the service. Great response! Our [electrical line] problem was actually caused by the summer draught. My husband didn't know I had signed up for the protection, but was glad I had when the problem occurred."
