As Halloween Approaches, Safeware Looks at Some of Their Scariest Claims

Some of Safeware’s claims get in the Halloween spirit by being hauntingly unexplainable.


Dublin, Ohio, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A chill is in the air, the leaves are changing, and Halloween is right around the corner. As people everywhere pick out a new costume for the scariest night of the year, Safeware, a leading provider of protection plans and extended warranty solutions, decided to take a look at some of the scariest claims’ stories from their customers.

The Walking Washing Machine

One Safeware customer in Missouri was enjoying a quiet evening at home when he noticed a startling sound coming from his basement. Growing tired of the irritating noise, the customer went downstairs to see what was causing such a disturbance. To his horror, his washing machine was vibrating so violently that is was scooting across the basement floor on its own!

The Haunted Laptop

Another Safeware customer in Michigan spent the afternoon locked in her room attempting to get some last-minute studying in before her big final. A few hours into studying, she started getting drowsy and decided to turn her MacBook off and take a quick nap. When she woke up, she realized her laptop had turned itself back on and was beeping. When she went to shut it down again, it mysteriously proceeded to turn itself back on once again.

The Shattering Table

In Missouri, a third Safeware customer was enjoying a barbeque in her backyard. After grabbing a drink, she decided to sit down at her patio table with friends. Upon sitting down and setting their drinks on the table, the glass top shattered unexplainably, covering the chairs and ground with shards of glass, some of which even made their way into the nearby swimming pool!

“At Safeware, we receive claims on consumers’ products every day from normal incidents such as mechanical breakdown, liquid spills, and accidental damage from handling,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “However, we do see some out of the ordinary claims that certainly catch our attention. Fortunately, we are able to offer comprehensive product protection, even on some of the bizarre incidents customers experience with their products.”

While this is the scariest season of the year, customers don’t have to live in fear about what they would do if their products or devices break down. Safeware offers comprehensive product protection for even the most outrageous incidents, allowing customers to own their products with confidence this Halloween.
