General Information

Going away on holiday? – Absentminders can arrange to visit your home once a day or more to ensure that the property is secure and there are no visible problems to sort out in your absence. A daily check can save you the trauma of returning and finding you have had unwanted intruders or a domestic mishap such as a burst water pipe or broken window, which could be repaired whilst you are away.

There are many companies advertised that offer expensive house-sitting services with someone staying in your house full-time. However, you may not have the need for such a costly exercise, and by taking advantage of Absentminders services you save your pennies to spend while you are away!

 

House and home security while on vacation

The security of your property and possessions is one of the biggest concerns when going away, whether you are absent for a couple of days or longer. We can remove the stress of leaving by keeping a watchful eye, or even acting as a key holder or alarm contact for the security company you are registered with. The fact you have Absentminders as a backup may even lead to lower premium by proving you are willing to go to extra effort to ensure your property’s security. We take the issue of security very seriously, and all clients’ keys are securely locked away and have no details of the client’s name or address attached to them. We also have public liability insurance.

Absentminders can also ensure that your house is ready for your return by switching on lights and/or heating, buying in groceries or preparing a home-cooked meal to welcome you back rather than coming home to a cold, empty house. If you have laundry and ironing that needs doing while you are away, or you would like your house cleaned then we can also guarantee this. We can remove any signs that you are away, for example mail or newspaper deliveries, and put out and return waste and recycling bins.

 

We will look after your pets while you are on holiday

If you have domestic pets that need feeding. care or watering, but do not want to put them into a boarding house, Kennels or Cattery, we can make certain that they are cared for on a daily basis in the comfort of your pets own home. Older animals can be stressed by a move to a different environment, so the benefits of someone coming into their home to feed and care for them, and administer any medicines if needed, are more reassuring for them than upsetting their routine. Also it reduces the exposure to any other illnesses or animals that may cause your loved one distress.

 

Gardening and plant care while you are away

You may be worried that your greenhouse plants or hanging baskets will wilt and suffer while you are away if the weather becomes too warm. We can water house plants if needed, or moreover in the summer months water the garden so that you do not come home to dried out plants or herbaceous borders.

 

Wait in for deliveries while you work

For larger businesses, Absentminders can be a valuable service to you and your employees – instead of having to take the morning or afternoon off to wait at home for an important delivery or to supervise tradesmen, you can employ us to do so while you are working.

 

If you would like any further details, please do telephone Absentminders on 01242 573 289. If you would like to take advantage of our services, the initial consultation will consist of a meeting to discuss your requirements face to face so that both parties are totally happy with the arrangements before you leave, and a contract laying out the exact details of what you wish done is completed and signed.
