With the weather cooling, warm vacation getaways are starting to look very appealing. Why not escape the snow and spend a few weeks or months in the sun? But what about your property while you’re away? Helping Hands Property Services provides thorough property and vacant home checks so you can vacation stress free.

What are vacant home and property checks?

Most insurance policies require home checks when your home is vacant, and depending on your policy, home checks can be necessary every 24 hours or once a week. Whether you are a snowbird who will be spending a significant chunk of time away from your property, or someone going on vacation for a few days or weeks, our team at Helping Hands Property Services will make sure your property is well taken care of.

With vacant home and property checks, our team will conduct a professional check of your home and property to ensure that everything is running smoothly. These checks involve checking smoke detectors, windows, and doors, inspecting freezers and refrigerators, rotating lights, and blinds, making sure your furnace and water tank are functioning normally, and so much more!

Many additional services are also available, like watering plants, starting cars, and taking care of pets. We are pleased to take care of all your property needs, no matter what they are.

Vacant home and property checks

Checks for your property

Every property is different, and our team takes the time to customize a walk-through plan specifically for your property. We will check and address the areas you are particularly concerned about with your property, make sure we are in accordance with your insurance policy requirements, and ensure everything is safe and in working order. Your peace of mind is our priority.

At each home visit, our team will review and complete the customized, comprehensive checklist so that nothing is missed. And at the end of your vacation or each month if you’re a snowbird, we will provide a comprehensive report detailing what was checked on your property and make sure you are aware if any further action is needed.

If your travel plans change or your return is delayed, just contact Helping Hands and we can extend our services for as many days as you need.

Luxury Package

Looking for a bit of extra pampering? The luxury package is the perfect way to prolong that vacation feeling once you arrive back home.

On top of the normal services included with property checks, the luxury package includes shuttle service to and from the airport, grocery shopping so your fridge is stocked when you return, professional cleaning of your home, clean linens and ready-made beds, and a bonus surprise gift.

You’ll be able to sit back and let the stress of traveling melt away when you return to a clean home, fresh bedding, and a fridge full of all your favourite snacks.
