Help 4 Timeshare Owners, also known as Helping Timeshare Owners, is another timeshare exit company that states they can help you get rid of your timeshare. Based out of Orlando, Florida, the company has been in business since 2010. It is situated at different locations throughout the United States.
Once known as Helping Timeshare Owners, the company once had different affiliate locations in Oklahoma, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, California, Texas, Utah, and Missouri. As time has passed, it seems that they have changed their name and website to “Help 4 Timeshare Owners.” The company has also down-sized to just their Helping Timeshare Owners Orlando headquarters location, their previous affiliation with Integrity Solutions Group in New Mexico, and their new location in Nashville, TN.
Downsizing and changing your domain isn’t necessarily a red flag, but it could reflect the company’s current success. And as our team began to assess the company, this started to become the case. If you’re looking for a fair and honest review of Timeshare Owners, look no further. Our team has compiled an in-depth review filled with many pros and cons to give our readers better insight. We believe every timeshare owner should know a couple of tips before working with any exit company. Initiate a live chat, or fill out our free consultation form to learn more.
Help 4 Timeshare Owners LLC Reviews
Help 4 Timeshare Owners LLC reviews are primarily negative. The company has had a pattern of complaints with owners mentioning issues with their guarantees, refunds, and exchanges.
As we dove deeper, many helping timeshare owner complaints began to shed some light on why so many owners were upset with the company. At first glance, Help 4 Timeshare Owners have a very appealing website design. The first thing we noticed is a bold statement that says “Timeshare Cancellation Proven Results. A 93.5% success rate.”
Immediately, we found a red flag with their opening statement. Many might think this is a high success rate. On the contrary, anything lower than a 99% success rate is not a positive sign. We understand sometimes certain odd situations can cause a 1% error rate, but to drop 5.5% after helping owners since 2010 means many owners suffered the consequences of a failed timeshare cancellation.
What’s also concerning is Help 4 Timeshare Owners offers a Free Consultation. We do not want to confuse any readers here because offering a free consultation is an excellent sign of legitimacy. This demonstrates how selective the exit company is with the cases they take on. Typically a reputable exit company will first want to know if they are qualified to take on your case in the first place. As you can see this raised some concerns for our team because they aren’t successfully canceling timeshares from cases they pre-assessed during the free consultation. If Help 4 Timeshare Owners are taking the time to determine if they are qualified to take on an owner’s case, why are they failing to make accurate judgments? Are they becoming greedy and taking on cases that they shouldn’t?
Another thing that stands out is the company is willing to put their “100% money-back guarantee” in writing. A company that is willing to go to lengths to put something in writing portrays the company that puts its customers first. Unfortunately, much recent Help 4 Timeshare Owners BBB and Helping Timeshare owner’s complaints say otherwise.
According to Help 4 Timeshare Owners:
We edify companies that are willing to protect their customers by offering in writing guarantees. Although the company claims to have helped thousands, with the number of complaints and a low success rate, It’s pitiful to see hundreds more who did not share the same success.
Another misleading statement we found was Help 4 Timeshare Owners claims it has an “A+” Rated status. The question is on what platform? None of their affiliations have a 5-star rating anywhere, and both Helping Timeshare Owners BBB and Help 4 Timeshare Owners BBB pages have an “F” rating. Integrity Solutions Group has an “NR”-Not Rated rating.
It doesn’t end there. Next to this section, Help 4 Timeshare Owners mentions that Integrity Solutions Group has a proven track record with a 99.2% success rate. This is a much better success rate; however, this company has only been in business for 1 year with only 2 customer reviews. A “proven track record” seems like quite a stretch, don’t you think? Besides, why are they mentioning this success rate on the Help 4 Timeshare Owners website? The company’s data seems to be all over the place and not very credible.
Under the ‘About Us’ page, Integrity Solutions Group’s success rate is mentioned again instead of Help 4 Timeshare Owners’ success rate. Is the company not proud of its success rate? After claiming on their homepage, they have proven results? Are these “proven results” their own or Integrity Solutions Groups? Another point here on the ‘About Us’ is the company points out that it is a “firm.” It does not mention they are a law firm, nor if they use attorneys to cancel your timeshare. Nothing is mentioned about their cancellation process, and there is no ‘FAQ’ page. The only other page left is their ‘Guarantee’ page, which just says
Unfortunately, a 100% Money-Back Guarantee does not protect you from all timeshare exit scams. Money-back guarantees still mean up-front fees, meaning you are still vulnerable to a timeshare exit scam. Who’s to save you the day the exit company you hired decides to file for bankruptcy? We’ve seen many cases where companies run off with owners’ money after receiving up-front fees. Resulting in owners who are left with no money and timeshare they’ve yet to cancel.
Cost & Fees
Helping Timeshare Owners Costs
Similar to their competitors, Helping Timeshare Owners’ costs are not available online. The grounds of the cancellation industry are based on individualized consultations with each timeshare owner. Each exit company takes into consideration the timeshare developer as well as the details in your contract. In other words, Helping Timeshare Owners’ costs are not determined until after consultation with the company.
A standard range of exit costs can run from $3,000-$8,000. One tip we do want to offer is to always negotiate for a lower price. When an exit company mentions their “fees vary,” this is an opportunity for you to put on your best poker face and negotiate a cheaper cost! It doesn’t hurt to try, and it can only benefit you.
Helping Timeshare Owners Ratings
Update February 2021. As we mentioned earlier, the BBB rating for Helping Timeshare Owners has an ‘F’ rating on the Better Business Bureau. The Help 4 Timeshare Owners BBB rating is also an “F.” Neither business has a Better Business Bureau accreditation. Helping Timeshare Owners has had 59 total complaints in the last 3 years and 16 complaints in the previous 12 months. Help 4 Timeshare Owners has had 26 complaints during the last 3 years and 19 complaints for the last 12 months. They have a 1/5-star rating out of 2 customer reviews.

And on Yelp, they have a 3/5-star rating out of 2 customer reviews. Below are two recent BBB review from past Helping Timeshare Owners customers:
In conclusion, Help 4 Timeshare Owners does not appear to be a legitimate exit company. The company does offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee but does not provide an escrow payment option. There is also no mention of their cancellation process or whether they use attorneys to cancel your timeshare. Their data is very misleading and quite messy. There are also numerous helping timeshare owner complaints and primarily negative Help 4 Timeshare Owners LLC reviews.
Still, the best way to protect yourself against a timeshare exit scam is a no-up-front fee escrow payment option. Contact our team so we can help you find and determine if a timeshare exit company is reputable. We recommend exit companies that offer escrow to eliminate any up-front fees.
