At first when there were problems with the furniture the plan worked great. Later when the chairs had to be traded in the Lazyman company switched out my warranty and the chairs. I didn't get paperwork on the deal and they said don't worry it is all the same with no cost to you. I found out this month when I needed a repair done to my chair fabric that it is now a five year plan and back dated to the date of the first chair purchase not the swap out. That leaves me with just one year left on the fabric plan.
I spoke with the warranty company named Guardsnotaman. I submitted a claim. They denied my claim for the following reasons:
- Chair-Rocker Recliner - Frame Cracked - The reported damage on your furniture is not covered under the terms of the protection plan.
- Chair-Rocker Recliner - Rip/Tear-More than 1/2 Inch away from Seam - The records indicate Guardsnotaman is not the service provider of the protection plan. Please contact your retailer to determine the provider of the furniture protection plan purchased.
I called up Guardsnotman and after a fifteen minute hold talked to Robert that is like many an insurance claim representative that didn't want to help. I told him to stop being hostile with me. That I will call back later and speak with his supervisor. And I will most likely go to the BBB over this too. Since the BBB is just outside of post that won't be hard to do.
I'm quite upset at their switch on my policy. I'm upset that they decided, from the pictures that I sent, that it wasn't accidental. My statement on the form was this: "Turning chair on carpet wood poked through fabric tearing fabric." That was an accident! They are just trying to find a way in which not to pay for the panel to be replaced.
