Lastly, the checklist should be customized for your property. Just like in aviation, if you don\'t have a checklist for your specific property, you don\'t have a real checklist. Generic won\'t cut it. Do you have a second freezer? It should be documented. Multiple air conditioning units? Absolutely. Specialized lights, landscaping systems, plumbing systems or high_end vehicles need special checks and memory isn\'t what you want to rely on. If the service starts with a comprehensive checklist that is then tailored for your property, you are getting an expert. Make sure they record your special needs and add them to their list during the initial sign up interview. Checklists have saved many lives and airplanes in aviation. Applied to your snowbird home, they can do the same. But keep in mind these three key elements when you are interviewing home watch companies.
Have you begun packing for the event with the supplies you will need or the food you would love to bring with you? If you have not done so, it is time to make a checklist. Doing so will ease your stress level when trying to figure out if you have remembered something or not. A checklist is a huge benefit. Before you create your own checklist, get an idea what a camping checklist is supposed to contain. Really... a list can contain most anything you want to have. Most people use the list to be sure they have all the necessary items including food and clothing. This also helps in for packing up the right kind of camping gear. The list can also contain what kind of activities you would like to do while you are camping.
