Always Best Home & Pet Minding offers a home minding service for clients who want their home to look lived-in whilst they’re away. Potential intruders or vandals may be deterred by your minder applying occupancy strategies during visits. These strategies can be planned with you prior to commencement of the assignment.
Note: this is NOT normally a live-in home minding service. However, this may be considered for regular clients who are away for an extended period of time. One or two day stays may be possible but charges will still apply. You may wish to check with your Home & Contents insurer if your home will be vacant for a long period of time, as you could find higher excesses apply.
