You have the option to request service either via your online account or by directly contacting the company. Often, you can initiate the request and specify your desired appointment time at once, making the process faster. After submitting the request, Cinch typically refers you to one of its service experts within two hours during regular business hours.

However, the company doesn’t promise a specific scheduling time by the service professional.

All provided services come with a 180-day workmanship guarantee. This means if an issue arises post-service but within this timeframe, Cinch will address and rectify it at no additional cost.
