Heartland Transfer is a timeshare exit company located in Crown Point, IN that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The company has been in business since 2012 and is the same company as Go Away Timeshare that we previously reviewed.
Having a look at the homepage of their website and a few things stand out. Under “The Truth About Timeshare” headline we see that the company says, “the only place timeshare gets sold is in those high-pressure timeshare presentations.” This is sort of true, but some timeshares are in fact sold on the timeshare resale market quite frequently. For example, Disney Vacation Club is a great timeshare product that is commonly sold on the resale market. Some timeshares in Hawaii are also commonly sold on the resale market as well.
Moving over to the “What’s my timeshare worth?” headline and we see that Heartland Transfer recommends timeshare owners go to Ebay and Craigslist to get an idea of how much their timeshare is worth. This is good advice that we also recommend. If other timeshare owners are advertising their units at the same resort that you own at for $1 on Ebay and Craigslist and no one is bidding, then you have a good idea of how much your timeshare is worth on the resale market (hint – likely nothing).
Moving down the homepage and looking at the section under “Some of the companies we have worked with…”, we see that Heartland Transfer claims it has worked with timeshare resort developers including Wyndham, Westgate, RCI, Marriott, and Holiday Inn. Heartland displays the logo of these timeshare resort developers on its website, which is generally not a good idea because it can get them sued.
Heading over to the testimonials page and we see a video “testimonial” that isn’t really a testimonial. Instead, it is a video of timeshare owners who have just signed up with Heartland Transfer at one of Heartland’s in-person seminars. Hate to break it you Heartland Transfer, but it’s not a testimonial if you haven’t performed any services for your new client yet.
Moving over to the About page and we see one of the company’s owners talking about the story behind Heartland Transfer. Similar to the story on the Go Away Timeshare website, the owners bought a timeshare and had difficulty getting rid of it. They eventually figured out how to get rid of their timeshare and then opened a timeshare exit company to help others get out as well.
Heartland Transfer Cost
Like virtually all timeshare exit companies in existence, the Heartland Transfer cost is not available only. If you’re looking for Heartland Transfer cost and fees, you’ll need to give them a call.
Heartland Transfer Reviews
Heartland Transfer reviews around on the Internet are mix of positive and negative. The company has an A+ on the BBB as well as 35 positive reviews, but there is one negative review on Yelp and one negative review on Google as of 10/10/19. The negative Google review complains of poor communication and the negative Yelp review mentions that that the 100% money-back guarantee is worthless. There also seems to be some negative reviews on a website called Revdex where owners complain of an attorney Heartland Transfer previously worked with. It appears that Heartland no longer works with this attorney, so this is likely not a big deal in 2019.
Overall, our recommendation does not change. We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so they don’t get paid in full until after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
