Domestic and General insurance - you've probably recently purchased new 'White' goods...Hotpoint, Indesit, Servis etc. They want to sell you an extended warranty

That makes sense. I missed a call from them - and I've just bought a fridge.

also makes sense to me, my Hotpoint cooker was delivered 2 hours ago, I declined warranty when I arranged delivery yet a few days later they try to ring to get me to take it out. Going to block the number I think

5 Yr Parts Warranty
Yeah I had the same call one hour after delivery!!!! but didn't answer as I was thought it would be another PPI call. The thing is, I was lead to believe that all Indesit / Hotpoint appliances have a 1yr parts & labour warranty and a 5 Year Parts waranty anyway ??

You re right,they do have a 1 year guarantee like most things do,and on the front of my dishwasher theres a sticker that says about a 5 year parts warranty! Domestic and general must think we are all stupid! I ve blocked their number now.

1 hr after delivery
The guy stated by asking if delivery had gone ok buy quickly switched to trying to sell extended warranty. Became VERY rude & agitated when I refused. Had to just hang up in the end as he was extremely argumentative. Don't expect this kind of harassment just from buying kitchen appliances!

Just had my dishwasher(indesit)delivered 1/2 hr ago and just received a call on my mobile from this number,answered it and they put the phone down! Domestic and general have always been a pain about selling warrantys! Has anybody else on here got their white goods from a catalogue ?

I used to feel the same until my washer stopped working 😩and i phoned them to come out and although i had 2 yrs left on the parts i would have had to oay the call out charge/labour which was hundred quid so i took out the warranty for 7 quid a month then had to wait 30 days b4 i could report a fault and hey presto 3 weeks later just got a brand new washer today upgraddd model absolutely thrilled 👌
