Guardsman Protection Plan

Accidents happen; relax we’ve got you covered with our Guardsman Protection Plan!

So what is a protection plan?
A Guardsman Furniture Protection Plan is an underwritten insurance product for new furniture; it covers your furniture against life’s little accidents such as accidental staining and accidental damage.

Our aim is to keep your furniture looking good and in full use in your home; so wherever possible our network of repair technicians and cleaning specialists will always try to repair the damage! And if a repair isn’t possible, we will source new parts for you, or if they are not available, we will arrange for a replacement item to be ordered.

What am I actually covered for?
We’ll cover you for accidents to your leather or fabric upholstery, and your cabinet furniture.

Accidental stains, examples include:

  • Drinks such as red wine or coffee
  • Food such as curry and pizza
  • Bodily fluids such as blood or vomit
  • Ink such as biro, felt tip or permanent marker
  • Unidentifiable stains such as a stain appearing after a party
  • Paint
  • Make up and toiletries
  • Dye transfer from jeans or newspaper (not as a result of a build-up)
  • Oil based stains such as grease or tar
  • Adhesives and glues
  • Bleaches and other household cleaning products
  • Acidic liquids such as vinegar and lemon juice
  • Ring marks
Accidental damage, examples include:

  • Tears and rips caused by keys and belt buckles
  • Scratches and snags caused by jewellery
  • Burns caused by cigarettes
  • Thread pulls
  • Pet scratches (not as a result of a build-up)
A protection plan will not cover you for:

  • Animal chewing
  • Wear and tear
  • Damage caused by perspiration
  • General cleaning
  • Colour change
How your Protection Plan works
If we can’t fix it, we won’t let you down!

When you have an accident, you simply make a claim by calling our UK call centre, or by going to the Guardsman website and downloading a claim form:

Claim for as many incidents as you need over 5 years; you’ll have cover for parts, labour and replacement items up to the indemnity value of your plan. Your indemnity value is the price you originally paid for your sofa or €18,000, whichever is the lowest.

It differs from other insurance products and warranties because there is simply a one off fee you pay at the time of purchasing your new furniture, meaning there are no excesses to pay, or annual renewal costs.
