Our Capabilities

 
 

Q: What are the main types of damage that can be cared for or repaired in my home?

A:

We work with fabric, leather, and wood products in addition to mattresses and outdoor furniture.

Specifically:

  • Furniture cleans
  • Stain removal
  • Removal of liquid or heat marks
  • Nail polish removal
  • Mechanical / structural repairs
  • Rips, cuts, tears, and punctures in fabric or leather
  • Recolouring of leather
  • Scratches, cuts, tears, gouges, cracking, bubbling, and peeling of finish in wood
  • Minor pet damage
  • Cushion Interiors
  • Broken stitching
  • Zip replacements
  • And more

Q: What happens if the technician is unable to successfully resolve the issue they came to service?

A:

We do everything in our power to ensure this doesn't occur. We try to thoroughly understand your issue before coming to your home, and we attempt to give you a full sense of what can be done at that time. If the problem is different than originally described, the technician will perform a new inspection and provide a revised quote. If you choose not to proceed with the work as newly quoted, a fee will be charged for the in-home visit.

 
 

THE QUOTING PROCESS

 
 

Q: After I request an in-home visit, when can I expect to hear from a technician?

A:

You will typically hear from a technician within 2 business days.

Q: Who will be coming to my home to care for or repair my furniture?

A:

A qualified furniture professional who has been selected for the job because they are skilled with repairs of that type.

Q: Does someone need to come to my home in order to provide an estimate for services?

A:

Generally, no. Supplying us with quality photos of your damage will help us to provide an accurate estimate. Although, complex repairs or refinishing may require an in-home inspection.

Q: Why do you need photos of my furniture?

A:

So that we can accurately assess the damage and give you the most accurate quote.

Q: What is the lead-time to get a technician into my home?

A:

The technician will work with you to schedule a convenient time based on your availability and existing service requests. This will generally happen within two weeks (ten business days) of you booking the repair.

Q: What do I do if the technician does not show up at the time I was told to expect them?

A:

You will have your technician's contact information, so please call them directly. If you can't reach your technician or are unsatisfied with their answer, please call Guardsman furniture professionals at 0345 600 1899.

Q: Why is there a minimum service charge?

A:

To cover the cost of the technician's in-home visit.

 
 

THE CARE AND REPAIR PROCESS

 
 

Q: Can Guardsman always repair my furniture in my home?

A:

There may be times when we need to remove furniture from your home, but this will be discussed with you prior to that happening.

Q: How long will the care or repair process take? Will I be without my furniture for an extended time?

A:

The vast majority of our services will be completed in your home on the same day. The technician will give you guidelines as to how long before you can use your furniture again.

Q: Do you guarantee removal of all damage to my furniture?

A:

No. What we guarantee is a quality repair. The extent of our abilities will be discussed with you prior to service.

Q: Will the products used to care for or repair my furniture be safe for my family?

A:

Our products conform to all applicable safety standards. If the repair can’t be done safely in your home, our technicians may arrange for the furniture to be removed from your home and returned upon completion. If you are sensitive to certain chemicals, odours, or noises, please let us know before you schedule your appointment so that we can explore the best options for your service.

Q: When will I be charged for the service?

A:

We will do an initial pre-authorisation for the amount of the service, but your credit or debit card will not be charged until service is completed.

Q: What do I do if I need parts to fix my furniture?

A:

Many parts are the responsibility of the consumer, however we will try and give you guidance on what you will need and how you can secure the part prior to the technician's arrival.

 
 

FURNITURE PROTECTION PLANS

 
 

Q: What do I do if I have a Guardsman Furniture Protection Plan but the service I need is not covered?

A:

First call the phone number associated with your Protection Plan to ensure that your service is not covered. If it isn't covered, the customer advisor will transfer you to our in-home care and repair department.
