Packing Checklist

The best way to feel prepared and make sure that you don’t forget anything is to make a checklist. Writing all the important things you may need helps you feel organized. It’s easy to miss the little things when you are packing for multiple people or in a rush. You wouldn’t want to forget your contacts, pairs of socks, a charger, or other important items. We recommend starting a checklist at least a week before you leave, you can continue to add things to it throughout the days leading up to you departing. Make sure to double check it before you leave to make sure you got everything. Here is a sample packing list with everything you can think of – and some stuff you didn’t!
Another thing to help you feel prepared for a trip is by bringing extras. Extra food, chargers, underwear, and other items to loan to others if they forget or if emergencies happen. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and it’s helpful if you were to encounter a delayed flight or other issues along the way.

Get Repairs out of the way!

Are there repairs and things you need fixed but never have time? Everyone is busy and it’s hard to carve out time for important things that will take away your necessary vehicles, so there’s no better time to get them fixed than while you’re away. If your vehicle has a dent, scratch or damaged interior, leave your vehicle with us while you go on vacation. You’ll come back to it looking good as new.
Our service area covers vehicles at the Boise Airport. If you leave your cars parked at the Boise Airport, we can send one of our mobile repair units out to do any exterior repairs. You can also drop your car off at our Boise location, and we will give you a ride to and from the airport. We understand that traveling can be stressful and we want to make sure our repairs help save you some stress. There’s nothing better than coming back to resolved issues after all.
If you have any questions about how repairs work while you’re away, feel free to check out our website or call us today and we can answer any questions.

Home Management Systems

Making sure your home is set to the right security settings and having everything turned off is important when traveling. If you are gone for just a day, it’s not as important, but if you plan to be gone for a week or longer you’ll want to make sure your home is in good shape.
Full integrated smart home systems are expensive, but they can save you money over time. There are smart systems that can lock doors, turn on lights, video your home, alert you of movement, and more. These can help you have peace of mind while you are away. Smart thermostats can also allow you to remotely control your home’s temperature. Lower the temperature while you are away so you can save money, and remotely raise the temperature so your home is nice and warm when you return.
These smart systems are continuing to get smarter. Nowadays you can also control everything on your phone through various apps. Whether you are using Amazon Alexa, Nest, Alert 360, Ring, or another security system, they will help to keep you and your loved ones safe by keeping tabs on your home while you are away.

Inform your Neighbors and Loved ones

Before you head off on your trip, don’t forget to tell a family member or trusted neighbor that you are leaving. This makes sure you have someone looking out for your home, bring your mail in, and care for your plants. It’s also nice to know someone is looking out for you and is aware of your whereabouts. You will also have someone making sure you arrive safely and come home safely.
Now that you are feeling comfortable and prepared for your upcoming trip, it’s time to enjoy your vacation! Take those pictures, send a postcard or two, and relax. When you come back your plants will still be growing, your vehicles will be fixed, and you will feel refreshed from your time away! You’ll be able to pick up your fixed car at the Boise Airport, and driving home with it will be the cherry on top of a good trip.
