It was perhaps only a matter of time before someone exploited the growing trend for ordering online and getting goods delivered. A new Brighton company has done just that.
The Home Cover Company is Brighton & Hove's first short term house sitting service. Unlike the more familiar long term house sitting this new micro sitting is based on hours rather than days or weeks.
Striking at the very heart of a work life balance The Home Cover Company provides a service so people do not have to take holiday or unpaid leave from work to wait at home for a home delivery or for the plumber to call.
Company MD Ian Molyneaux said, "We each take on average 3 days off a year waiting at home, that’s almost a weeks holiday. We passionately believe people should be using their time in the way they want to."
"Whether you need to save your holiday for when the children are off school or you simply do not want to cause disruptions to meetings and schedules at work then The Home Cover team is a simple and affordable alternative. Our service can be booked hourly, and if needed we can collect keys and drop them off again – it’s that simple."
