TrustedHousesitters does not follow the same format as a traditional house sitting agency because our members do not charge a fee to house and pet sit.
A win-win for both owners and sitters, we have proven that by encouraging a care-orientated experience our members often go above and beyond whilst house sitting. Next time you return from a trip you could be returning to a home-cooked dinner and fresh flowers on the table!
You Choose Your House Sitter
Unlike many traditional house sitting agencies, you have complete control over choosing the sitter who will care for your home and pets. Our members come from a range of backgrounds, boast varied life experiences, and all have the option to complete our industry-leading three-level verification, which includes a full, certified criminal background check by a third party. This feature is designed to help owners choose their ideal sitter.
As a member of TrustedHousesitters, home & pet owners can create a listing detailing their requirements and receive inquires from sitters who feel they are best suited to take on the role.
Every house and pet sitter has a profile offering insight into their personality, skills, and motivations to go sitting, enabling owners to choose like-minded people.
We also provide our members with house and pet sitter guidelines, a house sitting agreement form, Homeowner Welcome Manual, and Pet Profile which are designed to help make the most of the membership with TrustedHousesitters.
Trust, Safety, and Community are Key
Trust and safety are the foundation of our community pledge and as such we have partnered with the world’s leading provider of ID and document verification to offer our sitters the option to complete our verification process.
Owners can easily identify those who have completed the verifications by the trust badges displayed on a sitter’s profile.
Reviews and References Provide Insight
To complement our trust and safety features we encourage sitters to request third party references and member reviews on their profiles.
References from colleagues, employers, or landlords provide insight into a sitter’s personality traits, whereas member reviews offer feedback from other house and pet owners who have invited the sitter to care for their home and pets.
In addition to our industry-leading verifications, references and reviews help our members build up their Trust Profile.
These insights along with the many other features offered with your TrustedHousesitters membership help to ensure you connect with your ideal sitter and find peace of mind when you travel.
