Excellent service from Simon the technician, he was very professional and fixed our sofa creaking issue within an hour or so. Before leaving he talked us through the fix and offered very helpful maintenance advice. Extremely happy customers!

Do consider before buying from this group in association with M&S, the shocking quality, breach of the sales of goods act (I have challenged) is both poor and will cause you an issue if like me you are innocent and simply made a purchase. Be warned.

Worst company I’ve ever had to deal with, if they can bend the truth anyway possible to not give you any of your money back for your claim they will find it and the technician they send out is far from pleasent to deal with.If you are going to take insurance out for home items do not use these.

Fantastic service. My cat scratched my leather recliner and luckily I had this insurance when I bought the sofa. Within a week of phoning I now have a scratch free sofa. Quick friendly service. I’ve noticed all the 1 star reviews so wanted to say my experience has been nothing but positive.

If I could give zero stars I would. Absolute joke of a company. Do not use these for your furniture insurance. Their ‘technician’ came to assess an issue with my sofa, and actually damaged it further. Castelan have tried to deny this despite evidence on the contrary. This matter will be going down the legal route.

Don’t buy from ScS because they will lie to you and sell you insurance that don’t cover anything. Castelan will do everything to wriggle out of it. Our expensive sofa was clearly damaged by accident but to Castelan its wear and tear.
