Picture this, you just purchased a new sofa, and you are having company over to show off to your friends. Unfortunately, one of your friends spills their wine on your new sofa. Your new sofa gets covered in red stains. If you know anything about wine stains, you know those stains are likely to be permanent.
One simple mistake and now you are out hundreds or even thousands of dollars. And now you are terribly upset with your friends. But there is an alternative. A way that saves you from your own mistakes, and the mistakes of others. They are called furniture protection plans.
Furniture protection plans offer peace of mind. When your dog or cat jumps on the sofa, you know that you are protected from the inevitable paw print stains.
But will you really need a furniture protection plan? Today, we are here to show you why a furniture protection plan is a smart investment.
Furniture Protection Plan 101
Furniture protection plans are like insurance for your furniture. They are like having car insurance, health insurance, or homeowner insurance. Except, unlike car insurance, health insurance, or homeowner insurance, a furniture protection plan is good for 5 years with a 1-time cost.
When you purchase a furniture protection plan, it will extend the life of your furniture. Furniture protection plans will even cover manufacturer defects and flaws.
So, while a manufacturer’s warranty for 1 year will cover defects, protection plans can cover manufacturer defects, pet stains, food and beverage stains, rips, tears, burns, fading, scratches, cracks, breakage, etc., all for 5 years.
You Have Children
Not everyone has or wants children, but most people at some point in their life plan on having children. What is more, your friends or relatives might have children and bring them to your home.
And while you think your friends and relative’s children are all well-behaved little angels, accidents can and will happen. After all, they are still children.
Even the best-behaved child can cause damage. Furniture protection plans will help keep your furniture looking like new by repairing stains caused by children from crayons, spills, rips, tears, and other accidents.
You Have Dogs and Cats
Furniture protection plans can keep your furniture safe from animal damage. Most plans will cover pet damage (although you should always double check the coverage before purchasing a plan).
Everyone loves their dog or cat; some people even love other animals. Most people love to keep furry friends as companions. There is nothing better than a loving furry companion.
Unfortunately, sometimes cats can scratch, pee, and knock things over, while your dogs will pee, bite, and dig things. Owning an animal can be rough on your furniture. Puppies and kittens can be the roughest on your furniture and rugs, but you can protect them.
Accidents Do Happen
Accidents do happen. Yes, we know that we are stating the obvious. However, people all too often think “it won’t happen to me,” or “what are the chances?” Yet people still pay for car insurance, health insurance, and other types of insurance.
So why, then, wouldn’t you want to protect your furniture? For a nominal amount of money, you can insure yourself against all accidents. We think of insurance as peace of mind.
Insurance means not worrying about spilling that glass of wine. When it spills, there is no anger and no frustration, just knowing that accidents are not a big deal anymore and that you are covered.
Furniture Can Be Expensive
Yes, it is pretty-obvious, furniture can be expensive. You can spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on tables, chairs, sofas, desk, mattresses, etc. Even if you are on a budget, new furniture can cost into the thousands of dollars.
Most people will have to pay for their furniture on credit, while some will borrow from their home, others will use credit cards, some will use bank financing, and some fortunate ones will pay cash.
So why not protect that investment and make your furniture last longer.
Furniture protection plans can keep your investment safe. Quality furniture can last a lifetime, but only if you take care of your investment. There is no reason to let accidents ruin what could have otherwise lasted a lifetime.
Even Manufacturers Make Mistakes
Manufacturers are not perfect. Sometimes products have defects, and you will not always be able to catch those defects when you buy the piece of furniture. You might get home and find your chair has a rip, or your table has a chip.
The point being defects are not always noticeable. Furniture protection plans can cover defective furniture. Your protection plan can replace or mend your defective furniture.
Choosing Your Protection Plan
Choosing your own furniture protection plan is not always straightforward. You will need to understand your options and weigh which plan is right for you. Though we do recommend most protection plans. They offer flexible, comprehensive coverage that you cannot get from most manufacturer warranties.
Do you need the most extensive plan? Something that covers hard-woods? What about fabric? Which plan you should purchase, will depend on your own unique wants, and needs.
When choosing your plan, always select more coverage than you think you will need. Overprotecting your furniture is always better than taking a risk on your investment.
If you are purchasing furniture right now, and you are on the fence about purchasing a plan with it, now is the time to act. When you purchase a plan with your furniture, you will have peace of mind knowing that your investment is protected well into the future.
