The lockbox is left attached to a secure area around your home in any location of your choice. Any garage codes or alarm codes should be made as temporary codes for your vacation, not your personal code. We will store these numbers in our secure database and delete it upon your return.

We only access your property to ensure it meets certain insurance policies while you are away, and to reactivate prior to your return. If you contact us for an urgent requirement or to book a service call while you are away, that would be the only other time we enter the property.

Our professional service and proof of home preperation ensures smooth communication to your insurance provider. In addition, you can stop inconveniencing your friends or family and travel with peace of mind as we have your back!
