Guardsman Protection

Wine Glass

Sometimes accidents happen, minimise their impact and protect your investment with a Guardsman Protection Plan. 

A Guardsman furniture protection plan covers your new Castle & Gregory furniture against the occasional thrills and spills that life throws your way  - including accidental staining or accidental damage; the plan is an underwritten insurance product for new furniture.

Whilst we all like items to keep that just-unboxed look and feel it’s important to be able to relax in your own home whilst entertaining friends or just relaxing with family. 

Wherever possible the Guardsman network of repair technicians and cleaning specialists will always try to repair any damage; moreover where repair isn’t possible new parts will be sourced, if this is not viable then a replacement will be arranged.

What am I actually covered for?

We’ll cover you for accidents to your leather or fabric upholstery.

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

·       Makeup 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

A protection plan will not cover you for:

How your Protection Plan works 

If repair is not possible you won’t be let down.

When an accident occurs make a claim via Guardsman’s UK call centre or by going to the guardsman website and downloading a claim

Over the course of 5 years you can claim for as many incidents as needed, 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 £15,000, whichever is the lowest.

Guardsman 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.
