If the defect is covered by our guarantee the goods will be repaired by us or alternatively, at our option, we will provide replacements.

If you notify us within the two year guarantee period of any defect or fault which your goods have developed, provided that our inspection confirms that the defect or fault is covered by our guarantee, we will take such measures as may be necessary to rectify the problem to your reasonable satisfaction.

If, after supplying replacement goods on one occasion, we cannot satisfy your requirements due to faulty items, we reserve the right to uplift the faulty goods, refund any monies due and consider the order cancelled.

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

You can now recycle your old electricals with us.

If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.

Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.

We can help

We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items.

Simply hand your unwanted items to a member of staff, at your nearest store. Alternatively you can post back, at your expense, to Barker and Stonehouse, Romaldkirk Rd, Middlesbrough, TS2 1XA. Please attach your sales invoice order number of the similar item purchased.

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.

Find more information on WEEE recycling, and locate your local recycling centre, at www.recyclenow.com

To keep your furniture safe from life's little accidents, add a guardsman protection plan to your order by contacting our web team on 0333 355 9320, read more here...


Download our 5 year Fabric Platinum Protection Plan
Download our 5 year Leather Platinum Protection Plan

A protection plan is essentially ‘no excess’ furniture insurance;

  • o It covers life’s little accidents such as food or drink spills, accidental damage and structural defects
  • o When you have an accident, you simply claim on your plan by calling our UK call centre or go online and download a claim form
  • o There are no excesses to pay or annual renewal costs
  • o Our aim is to keep your furniture looking good and in full use in your home
  • o Wherever possible our network of expert repair technicians and cleaning specialists always try to repair the damage
  • o If a repair isn’t possible we will source new parts for you or, if they are not available, a replacement item

It provides complete peace of mind for you to enjoy your furniture.

We’ll cover you for accidents to your sofa that result in damage and staining. We’ll also cover you for structural faults once your manufacturer’s warranty has expired (normally after 1 year).

Accidental stains resulting from…

  • o Drinks such as red wine or coffee
  • o Food such as curry or pizza
  • o Human and animal bodily fluids, such as blood and vomit
  • o Ink such as biro, felt tip or permanent marker
  • o Unidentifiable stains such as a stain appearing after a party
  • o Paint
  • o Make-up and toiletries
  • o Dye transfer from jeans or newspaper (not as a result of a build up)
  • o Oil based stains such as grease or tar
  • o Adhesive’s and glues

Structural faults resulting in…

  • o Broken recliner mechanisms
  • o Excessive loss of resilience of foam cushions (not through general use)
  • o Stitching coming undone
  • o Springs softening
  • o Frame breakage
  • o Leather only – Peeling of leather

  • o General cleaning
  • o Wear and tear
  • o Colour change

It is important to note that a Guardsman protection plan is not a substitute for regular care and cleaning. We’ll take care of the accidents, but the day to day care is down to you.


  • o When accidents happen Guardsman have a UK wide team of trained furniture experts ready to repair damage and remove stains.
  • o If our expert technician can’t complete a repair or remove a difficult stain, we will replace either the part or individual item of furniture. If your original model is unavailable, we’ll invite you to reselect something similar.
  • o Claim for as many incidents as you need over 5 years. There is no excess to pay and 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 furniture or £15,000, whichever is the lowest.

Don’t hesitate to ask your sales advisor if you have any questions regarding the plan, or give the Guardsman advice line a call on 0345 120 32 37
