What to expect

We will communicate with you after each and every visit.  You will always know what is going on at your property (we will provide photo documentation upon request) so you can authorize prompt action to minimize or prevent damage. In the event of damage, Shelby’s Watch will contact the service provider of your choice and arrange repairs.  We will also make contact with the Police Department and file a police report on your behalf should the need arise.

Should an emergency arise, we will do our best to contact you, however, if we are unable, we will use our best judgment to handle it in the fastest, safest, and most cost-effective way.

Since our services are observation and reporting only, we cannot guarantee the safety or condition of your property. Anything can happen at any time.  However, utilizing our services will increase the chances of detecting a problem before it creates significant damage to your home.  Shelby’s Watch can, however, guarantee the privacy of its clients.  We will keep all information about you and your property strictly confidential.  We will never sell or give any information without your permission.
