15 Mar Property Check
Why should you have someone checking in on your property while you are away? Think of it like a seatbelt while you’re driving. Most days you can roll the dice and come out just fine. But, when you need it most, you’ll thank your lucky stars that you have that safety net. Harbourview has many clients that need regular checks of their property. Whether we are doing a scheduled check or an emergency call, our clients can rest easy knowing that they have capable staff taking care of every detail.
Regular Checks: It’s always a good idea to have regular scheduled checks done on a vacant (or semi-vacant) property. Just like going to the dentist or getting a physical, your property requires a skilled set of eyes to spot any minor issues before they become big problems. In Harbourview’s experience, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Recently at one of the cottages we look after a potentially devastating issue was discovered. The battery inside of the wireless modem was overcharging itself. The battery was bulged and ready to pop. Best case scenario, it explodes and leaves an acidic stain in its place. The worst case, a house fire. Thanks to a regularly scheduled property check, both scenarios were avoided.
Emergency calls: Many of our clients live elsewhere. Some are within a half hour drive, some are traveling in China. Regardless of where, sometimes you just can’t get to your place when you need to. That’s where we come in. Last Friday we received a call from Huronia Alarms about a client’s system malfunctioning. The client was in fact in China on business. Having a company like Harbourview to act on your behalf in a situation like this is a great piece of mind. We were there in less than 15 mins to resolve the issue.
Concierge Service: Not only is it great to have all of this preventative insurance in place, and staff ready to act on your behalf, but what about the little things? When Harbourview inspects a property we go step beyond the regular mechanical and visual checks. We know you are busy and we are here to help. From stacking new firewood, to filling your fridge with your favourite indulgences, we can make your visits go off without a hitch. Our concierge service extends to organizing with sub trades, to delivery services, to “you name it”. We are the one phone call you need to make when it comes to your property.
