Trusted Waikato house sitter

One critical thing to look for when looking for a house sitter in Hamilton and across Waikato is the vetting process that sitters go through. Read on to find out more about the screening steps that should be observed, and other key things that a house sitting service such as The Housesitting Company should do.

The essential screening process of a house sitter

Anyone who undertakes house sitting, whether they are in Waikato, the Bay of Plenty, Auckland or elsewhere in New Zealand, should be screened if they’re part of a housesitting service.

The Housesitting Company undertakes a thorough screening process of its potential sitters. The process has four steps and is as follows:

  1. A Ministry of Justice background check of the applicant is undertaken.
  2. The applicant must supply at least two written references. The homeowner also gets to see the references.
  3. The applicant must agree to The Housesitting Company’s Terms and Conditions.
  4. The applicant also undertakes a formal interview with one of our team (we know a lot about house sitting in Waikato and beyond).

The importance of using a house sitting service that adores animals

For many of The Housesitting Company’s clients, the most important factor in using our service is knowing how much we adore pets. The same can be said of our sitters. They love animals and take great pride in looking after not only a person’s home, but also their pet.

Often the pets are cats and dogs, but our sitters also look after a range of animals from horses to rabbits. If you’d like to ask questions about what you can expect from your sitter in terms of their pet care, just send The Housesitting Company a message and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

Why testimonials are part of finding a Waikato house sitting service

Any house sitting company can say they’re great. But what really matters are testimonials about the house sitting service provided. One of the best things that you can do if you’re looking to find a professional house sitting service in Waikato, or Auckland or across New Zealand, is to check client testimonials. They should cover a range of subjects such as the benefits of a provider carrying public liability insurance like The Housesitting Company does, to why pets are given excellent care by house sitters.
