As 2018 comes to a close, we owe a huge thank you to our members, contractors, partners, and everyone else we’ve had the pleasure of working with for making it such an enjoyable year! We’ve completed some very exciting projects this year and can’t wait to see what the new year holds.
If you’ve already consumed your body weight in turkey (and avoided the multitude of no-go conversation topics this year) the hard part is over. If not… here are a few reminders to alleviate other seasonal stress so you can focus on steering the conversation away from political theory or who makes the best mashed potatoes.
Know Your House – #IceStorm2013. Anyone else remember 3-7 days without power right before Christmas a few years ago? I know I do.
Know where flashlights, emergency kits, fire extinguishers, extra pet supplies and back up cell phone chargers are. If something goes wrong, you’ll want to be able to find those quickly.
Don’t Panic – I like to think that every family has someone like my brother. He’s always really proud of himself when he manages to not burn down the kitchen (I’m still scarred from the funnel cake incident of 2012).
In the event of a major or minor catastrophe remain calm, get control of the situation, then worry about moving things out of harm’s way.
Know Who to Call – Homeservice Club is here 24/7. 416-925-1111. We know that home emergencies don’t just happen during regular business hours.
Know the Rate – Yes, some companies will charge overtime rates if it’s after hours or a holiday, but we don’t! No overtime, and no travel charges for emergency services.
During the holiday season, more than ever, our thoughts turn to those who have made our progress possible. In this spirit we say, simply but sincerely
Thank you, and best wishes this holiday season!
The Homeservice Club Team
