Argos Furniture Care

Clumsy kids? Messy pets? Sometimes your perfect squidgy sofa, or the family dining table, can get damaged by accidents. Life just happens.

So we've put together specialised Argos Care to protect your favourite Argos or Habitat furniture. Should the unexpected happen, depending on the nature of your claim, we’ll send an expert technician to fix it or a cleaning kit for you to remove a stain. What’s more, if we can’t repair it, we’ll give you a brand-new replacement or Argos vouchers.

So, what's included?

  • Accidental damage cover – from the moment you get your furniture which includes: 
    • spills resulting in a stain on your fabric or leather upholstery
    • rips, tears or burns to your fabric or leather upholstery
    • scratches, punctures or scuffs to leather upholstery
    • breakage of frame components
  • Pet cover – two claims per duration of cover for damage caused by pets, but there’s no limit to the number of claims you can make for stains
  • Structural defects cover – once your manufacturer’s guarantee expires (only if the policy remains in force), frames and structural defects will be included too

And what’s not included?

  • Deliberate damage
  • Wear and tear
  • Neglect, abuse or misuse
  • Commercial use

Now, for the finer details...
