Search for House Sitting Services

I don’t know about you, but I prefer to hire house sitting services instead of asking a friend, relative, or neighbour to do it when I go out of town. I’m not sure why that is. I suppose I was brought up with the adage, “You get what you pay for.” But if you don’t pay anyone to keep an eye on your house, it will be treated as trash. However, if you pay anyone, they will take extra precautions to ensure that all is as it was, if not better! Visit TruBlue of Centennial.

The first thing you can look for when looking for house sitting services is whether or not the business you employ is licenced and bonded. House sitters, including plumbers and roofers, must be insured in case anything goes wrong while they are watching your home. Furthermore, this significantly reduces the amount of potentially fraudulent firms that may attempt to rob you. Another thing you can do is check online and see if the company has any past consumer complaints and read up on what they are. It’s important to read what it is, rather than dismissing a company’s name because of a minor red flag. Remember that certain customers will always start a problem, so see if this was one of them.

Most of the time, you’ll be able to look at profiles of potential house sitters online. Take your time reading through these. Take a look at the sitter’s age. Since many elderly people enjoy house sitting to supplement their income, some of them will be unable to care for your home if you have pet Dobermans. Also, not every sitter can handle pets due to allergies or other reasons, so if you have pets, double-check that the sitter you choose can. If you just want to be sure, you might run a criminal background check online using the sitter’s name that the agency gave you. This is completely legitimate, but it does come at a cost.
