Online business HouseSitMatch.com (www.housesitmatch.com) was called in to fill a last minute request for a pet sitter in Maidenhead, UK. Founder Lamia Walker said “Once in awhile we are asked to help in a crisis to find an emergency house-sitter or specialist pet-sitters within 24 hours. Recently one of our housesit adverts read – Last minute house-sitter Maidenhead. This usually occurs because someone has been taken to hospital unexpectedly – either the owner or a relative living far from the pet owner or an unexpected journey is involved. And of course the pets must be cared for, and usually no one else in the family can step in at the last minute. That’s when we have been called in to help.”
Such a situation arose recently, a new homeowner registered on behalf of her mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s and was unexpectedly hospitalized. Looking online the daughter happened across the HouseSitMatch.com website and read some of the Trustpilot testimonials and house sitter profiles. Before long she registered as a homeowner on the site and created a housesit ad expressing how urgent her situation was. She stated that she needed to find a reliable house-sitter as soon as possible, explaining her mother had been admitted to hospital unexpectedly and her two dogs were at home needing care. The HouseSit Match team noticed the ad and reached out to the daughter right away. Lamia already knew the perfect house sitter candidate and was in contact with him within ten minutes. She arranged a meeting for the daughter and the potential sitter the following day. Between the attentive personal service and the genuine trusted reviews, the daughter had little problem finding great care for her mother’s two sweet dogs and property. She was able to fill her urgent house sitting request with Lamia’s help in less than 24 hours!
Known for outstanding personal service through the HouseSit Match 5 star review system, Trustpilot is made to measure and can indeed be trusted. Each review is tied to a particular housesit and each house-sitter and homeowner involved in the house sit. Reviews cannot be changed by anyone once published, nor can they be edited by copying and pasting from another site. They are undeniably authentic reviews that reflect the real experience of each member involved in a house sit. Lamia says “We try to emphasize that good communications are critical for a successful housesit, and the reviews can be the litmus test for this. We are here to help our members have the best experience possible.” This kind of personalized care and attention doesn’t exist on other house-sitting sites.
Trusted reviews and genuine communication makes HouseSit Match a great site for homeowners and house sitters to connect. But individuals don’t need to enlist a house sitter only in case of an emergency. Homeowners benefit from a house sitters help when they vacation, travel for business, or need someone to occupy a holiday home. Putting a pet in a kennel can be expensive and stressful for people and their beloved pets. They ofen wonder, who will cut the lawn, collect the mail, and look in on their home while they’re away. Arranging this kind of “piecemeal” support can be time consuming and expensive. When you enlist a house sitter, homeowners can avoid some costs and worries about leaving the home empty in their absence. Most homeowners find their pets will be a lot happier staying in their own home as well.
In an effort to match more great house sitters with homeowners, Lamia would like to offer a 50% discount to all new members who mention PERFECT50 when they register with HouseSit Match. With the discount and the busy summer travel season just around the corner, now would be a great time to try house-sitting.
