7 Ways to Safeguard Your Home While on a Road Trip

It's time to go on a road trip! But before leaving on your road trip this summer, there are a few things you need to know to safeguard your home. Having peace of mind about your home goes a long way while being so far away!

1. Make a check list of all essential appliances that need to be turned off, or unplugged.
2. Check all windows to make sure they’re locked, even the upper level.
3. Stop newspaper delivery service, for the road trip duration.
4. Have a trusted neighbor pick up any flyers, or newsletters.
5. Use timers to turn lights on at night in different rooms and at alternating times.
6. Leave one vehicle in the driveway, instead of the garage.
7. Cut your lawn the day before and one layer shorter than usual, so it's not overgrown before returning.

Don’t forget to get your pre-road trip vehicle checkup! Having a safe vehicle is important too!
