After booking your summer holiday if sorting someone to keep an eye on your house and booking the pets into kennels is proving costly and difficult there could be an easy solution.
According to figures there are on average 2000 burglaries every day, while 25 per cent of arson attacks are on unoccupied homes, to make sure you’re not the victim of crime, while enjoying your holiday, you could use the new service www.trustedhousesitters.com.
They offers free house/pet sitting in exchange for somewhere to stay, helping sitters save on the cost of holiday accommodation.
Trustedhousesitters.com uses many different potential sitters, including veterinary staff, retired police, magistrates, animal rescue centre workers, medics, even a retired FBI special agent – so your house couldn’t be in safer hands.
Homeowners and house sitters only pay a small subscription to join - £10 for a month, or £40 for a year’s membership - although homeowners only pay if they find an ideal sitter they’d like to contact.
Homeowners can then securely advertise and search for sitters, read reviews from other assignments and relevant pet sitting experience. They can also view references, photos, video profiles and police check information to help give peace of mind.
