We think we invented house and pet sitting in 1980.
We stay in your home –we’re not a
popping-in service – so your pets enjoy regular companionship.
We have hundreds of imitators; some are cheaper than us, but we’re still the best buy because…
- we’ve looked after over 70,000 bookings (and most of these included the care of dogs or cats)
- we have nearly 1,000 carefully vetted, personally interviewed employees – probably there’s one near you
- we provide 24 hour back-up for our housesitters
- we are connected with all these insurers
…and having a house and pet sitter is the one time not to compromise
Going away – even for a few days – has its disadvantages. If you leave your home unoccupied it is increasingly at risk of burglary or weather damage; and if you are a pet owner you are probably reluctant to use kennels or catteries.
Homesitters Ltd was established in 1980 specifically to resolve these problems by providing a nationwide live-in home and pet sitting service, available throughout the year. We’ve looked after over 70,000 bookings, and we know that successful home and pet sitting requires scrupulous attention to detail – nothing must be left to chance. So all the Homesitters are our employees and meticulously vetted. They are conscientious and sensible, and motivated mainly by job satisfaction; they ensure security (although they are not security guards), look after possessions and pets and provide routine home and garden maintenance. On assignment, the housesitters are under the company’s direction.
We now have nearly 1,000 employees available throughout England, Wales and Scotland. With the security of substantial net assets the staff are required to be uncompromising in recruitment standards and in quality of service. Their constant aim is to make the Homesitters name synonymous with
- integrity and discretion
- meticulous care
- rigorous quality control
- good manners
Allowing relative strangers to look after your home, possessions and pets may seem rather a novel idea; some of our clients have told us that they were a bit doubtful about using our service for the first time! However, they soon adopted us as an essential part of going away. Over 70% of new clients re-book within two years and some of them have been with us since the 1980s.
We hope that you will find our service equally indispensable.
