Meet & Greet
We love to get to know all our guests at Hang My Hat and can offer a meet and greet service for new arrivals. It is always nice to put a face to a name and we find that this encourages guests to communicate with us during their stay, should they need any help or support.
We can provide regular or one off full property inventories, completed by an experienced team member. Save valuable time and protect your belongings with this highly recommended service.
We can take care of all of the maintenance jobs - large or small - that your property may need during its life as a holiday let, From window cleaning to garden maintenance, chimney sweeping, plumbing and electrics; we will get the work done at the best possible price for you. We will also arrange for any emergency repairs where required. If you have any preferred contractors or maintenance contracts running (e.g. gas service contracts, regular plumbers etc) then we would contact them in the first instance. We also have a list of trusted, preferred tradesmen we will use in all other cases.
Your property needs to meet a number of compliances to operate legally and safely as a holiday let such as a Gas Safety Certificate and smoke and CO2 alarms. We can arrange for this work to be done, check and file the relevant paperwork safely for you and send reminders when testing or certification runs out. We can also arrange additional services for your added peace of mind, such as boiler servicing, electrical safety testing, PAT testing and fire safety testing , (If you have a private water supply, you will need to arrange for this to be tested by the local authority – we cannot do this for you as the council need to deal with the homeowner.)
Whatever level of service you choose from us at Hang My Hat, you will receive a monthly update from us, detailing the work we have done for you in the previous month. All your bookings, maintenance updates, guest feedback and general issues will be reported back to you to keep you fully updated on your property.
