Rover: Pet Sitting from Your Smartphone

Rover: Pet Sitting from Your Smartphone

First things first, Rover has an app on both iPhone and Android. And on this app, you can search reviews that are verified by pet parents who have employed the sitter. Payment is done through the app, just like Postmates or GrubHub. This is great since you don’t have to get into the business of payment and tipping with your sitter.

When you’re dealing with any type of sitting, pet, car, or house, you want to be prepared for any type of emergency. You want to have some sort of access or support to your sitter or their agency. Rover has 24/7 support for their members so if anything should come up, Rover and the sitter will be there.

Safety with Rover

So is it safe to use Rover? Are the sitters and other providers safe and/accredited? On Rover, all sitters and service providers must pass a background check. They must also provide a detailed profile with personal and verifiable information.

Rover’s Guarantee

Not only does Rover offer 24/7 support but they back their care with up to $25,000 ready for emergency services. Here are more details: Rover will reimburse costs after the first $250 and care is covered for up to 30 days, so if anything should happen, there is ample time to submit expenses to their platform.

There are a few things Rover doesn’t cover such as damages to the sitter’s property or home, injuries incurred to sitters and walkers and their relatives and roommates along with pre-existing and preventable conditions.

Conclusion on Rover

Rover has the app, the guarantee, and financial backing if anything should go wrong. They’ve been around for a while and they’ve been the platform to be able to do background checks on all of their service providers.
