We have created the verification process to help build trust in our community and enable sitters to provide reassurance to owners when they are deciding who should care for their home and pets while they are away.
What Verifications are available?
- Email and telephone verification
- External references from an employer, landlord, character or someone you have house and pet sat for in the past.
- ID and document check, which is provided by our partners at Evident ID.
Is there a cost for completing the verifications?
No, we offer free verifications to all sitter members to help them build the best profile possible.
How can I be certain my personal details and information will be secure, kept private, confidential and not shared with third parties?
TrustedHousesitters does not hold any personal information for the ID Document Checks. Our verification partner, Evident ID, is industry-leading utilised by banks and other high-security services and business globally - therefore they maintain a bank-grade, encrypted security system, keeping your information confidential and secure.
Is Verification compulsory?
No, verification is entirely optional but we would recommend completing them to help build trust on a sitters profile.
How do I gain verification?
You can gain your verifications via the dashboard of your account when next logged in.
