"Trusted is the real deal!! My husband and I contacted Trusted after having issues with a vehicle that we purchased from a Trusted Auto dealer a few years ago.We notified the owner of Trusted Saskatoon (Sara Wheelwright), who got us in touch with the Operations Manager . We promptly met with him to iron out our concerns and he dealt with them in a straightforward and timely fashion, him and other staff showed us utmost respect and patience. In the end we walked away feeling very satisfied .. We recommend the FFUN motor group to anyone looking to purchase a new or used vehicle they are honest and live by the Trusted Guarantees..we know! Thank-you to both Trusted and to FFUN motor group for looking after us so well!!! " Tracy D , Feb 7th 2012

What about the businesses who are our Trusted Partners

Lets share just some of their recent comments!

" Just wanted to let you know just got my first Client from Trusted Saskatoon! " Tammy Wandzura Mortgage Broker - Feb 10th 2012 ( just 3 weeks after she went live on the Site)

" Just wanted to let you know that we have had a great response from being listed with Trustedsaskatoon .com We have only joined up with you at the beginning of June so having results back this quick is saying a lot. Our new clients have stated that it is great to have a local place that gives information and has testimonials about local businesses , especially for new home owners who haven’t really dealt with home repairs. On a secondary note by being listed with you at Trustedsaskatoon.com our business name is climbing up in the listings when you search for Saskatoon plumbers! So all your hard work is paying off with launching your business and getting the name out there! Keep you posted on all the good things ! Keep up the good work! Thanks again Angela Cyrenne Perfection Plumbing - July 11th 2011

" Thank you Trusted Saskatoon for assisting us in getting to the forefront of our industry. Being able to reach out and meet or speak to you at the drop of a hat is so helpful. Technology is the way to go! Trusted ROCKS......" Kate, Gibbon Heating and Air-Conditioning, 30th March 2012

" I went live on Trusted Saskatoon on Friday and I have had my first call on Monday, they weren't calling for a quote along with 4 or 5 other companies , they were calling because they TRUST me and wanted to book me for their big reno after finding me on Trusted and reading my listing!!! I have never had that kind of result before with advertising..and I have done Radio, Yellow pages and lots of other things in the past ...thank you Trusted I am already a FAN after just 3 days with you " Alex Sipko, Saskatoon Woodworks, 26th March 2012

"It is always a proud moment when a potential customer tells you that they have actually heard of us. We get comments like, “So you are the voice on the renovation show on News Talk”, “We saw your designer on CTV Morning Live”, “We hear your radio advertisements”, I read an article in a magazine about you guys”. This past weekend at the Home Styles Show, we got some new comments. “I got your name from Trusted so I wanted to come talk to you”, “I saw the Trusted logo over here so I wanted to find out more about your company”, “I checked out your website from a link on Trusted Saskatoon.Com”. We handed out brochures about my company and in the package were the Trusted Saskatoon Logo Brochures. This was how I found out that numerous people had checked us out on Trusted Saskatoon Website. I was pleasantly surprised and made mention of this during the show as to how many people had actually checked us out through Trusted Saskatoon. I can tell you, I smiled lots because it was a great feeling knowing that we are a Trusted company.

The reason we originally joined Trusted Saskatoon was (1) to advance my company, (2) promote our integrity in business (3) additional exposure and networking. Trusted Saskatoon promotes the 5 Trusted Guarantees necessary to be a member so that logo on our company brand indicates to our potential customers that we are a dependable company. It only makes sense to me that we also promote Trusted Saskatoon within my business like we did at Home Styles. We want to set ourselves apart from the competition and let everybody to know that we are a Trusted Company!

With the amount of people I talked to at the Home Show, I know that Trusted Saskatoon works for me. I am confident it works for other companies that promote their memberships too. We give Trusted Saskatoon a Big Thumbs Up! " Dave Anderchuck, 30th March 2012 J.A.B.A Construction  

"“Sara approached Campbell Homes with the opportunity for us to be featured on TrustedSaskatoon.com. Her passion and knowledge in her field sold us to sign up. In a short period of time she has gone above and beyond positioning us in the market. I highly recommend the value that Sara and her team can bring.” Jason Campbell, Campbell Homes March 16, 2012

"“Sara and the Trusted team are amazing. We at JonesE are a unique business and with that we are always looking for new ways for us to stay ahead of our competition. If you are looking for a great way to have your business represented in a way that no other place can Trusted is the place for you. Just email the Trusted team and I am sure you will find out for your self that this is THE place to be promoting your company. Check out www.TrustedSaskatoon.com to find out how you to can be a steps ahead of your competition.” Karen Jones, JONESE June 8, 2011 

" We got our first job from TrustedREGINA after just 2 days ..from another Trusted Partners Melcher media..way to go Trusted Regina! Can't wait till we launch! " John, Bergen Auto Body, March 21st 2012 "HI Sara, Thanks for the referal. I am really, really amazed at the number of people who find us off of this site. I would not have believed this kind of success to be honest with you. There was obviously a real need for someone to step up and create a site like Trusted for a long time. Thanks again Sara for everything. My business saw a 400% growth last year, and I credit your site for a lot of that." Sincerely,Ken Eade 3 n'1 Construction, saskatoon April 2012"

Here is a You Tube Video explaining how we operate and what we stand for..and this explains WHY IT WORKS..can you think of anyone that DOES NOT want to deal with local businesses they can TRUST?

 

 

 

 

Trusted Saskatoon shares a Mystery shop, and explains what set Trusted apart from ' the rest' .

Trusted Saskatoon Mystery shop Rays Moving, we share the results on the SASKATOON DIRECTORY of excellence posted by

Trusted Saskatoon | January 19, 2012 18:28

Being a Trusted Business on the the www.trustedsaskatoon.com directory comes with alot of responsibilty...no other directory, advertising medium or ' watchdog organization' puts businesses through the process we do before we promote and endorse them...in fact,the most other organizations offer is checking that the business has a valid business license, and maybe that they have insurance and don't have an F rating ( some even keep taking money off these terrible businesses for advertising no matter what they are rated or how awful they are to their customers) ...some other marketing companies claim to survey the public randomly before they approach businesses to pay to join their organizations..but even they don't offer any safeguards, guarantees or follow up after the fact for the consumer they proport to speak for...and only the BBB offer dispute resolution..but they cannot force the business to 'make it right' ...just advise them to do the right thing, and perhaps reduce their rating if they don't treat the customer fairly ...and if the business you have had an awful experience with ( like the moving company in the article below ) is not a member of the BBB then they do nothing for you..you are on your own, out of pocket and feeling thoroughly ripped off miserable and taken advantage of ...click on the link to read the CBC news story below for an example of just that!

MOVERS USE EXTORTION AGAINST CUSTOMER

Trusted ONLY speaks to businesses that have great recommendations and a trackable history....Trusted has turned businesses away who do not meet our standards ( we require the businesses who apply to provide 25 clients to us..names and numbers) we then we set about calling those clients and surveyng them..it is pass or fail..we are not looking for OK or AVERAGE ratings..Trusted demands AWESOME and OUTSTANDING reviews...otherwise they do not pass the verification to be on the directory and they do not get the Thumbs Up..the busnesses are re checked and verified annually! There are businesses we will not even go and present to, even if they show interest, due to the things we have found out about them and their practices.....running a company call Trusted means people feel safe to tell us about their experiences positive and negative...and we always keep their confidences .....Sara the Trusted owner and our Trusted Consultants get warnings by email, calls and in person every week from the public and other business owners about the businesses to ' stay away from' and we have a growing naughty list.....

The Trusted Partners ( as that is what we call our Trusted businesses ..as only Together are we Trusted..we all have our parts to play to ensure the directory maintains the standards and high level of integrity that it does) and Trusted then enter into a contract, where the partners sign to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees ..these are the foundation of our business and they are the Guarantees that our Trusted businesses offer their clients...to ensure that our partners are upholding these guarantees on a daily basis we have a MYSTERY SHOPPER PROGRAM, where we mystery shop a minimum of 10% of our Trusted Partners on an annual basis....and we get our shoppers to fillout a report to tell us about the experience....

Our latest business to be mystery shopped was RAYS MOVING & STORAGE , Mark at Rays was happy for us to share the report with you, the public..

TRUSTED PARTNER: Rays Moving

DATE OF MS:Monday November 21st (phone call) Thursday December 1st (move date)

MYSTERY SHOP CHECKLIST

1. How was the greeting/ welcome/ call answered?

I was transferred to a very friendly and extremely helpful fellow who booked my move for a time and day that worked for me in less than 10 minutes. I would normally have written down his name, but under the circumstances I neglected to do so therefore I have forgotten the name of the person that I spoke with. He was absolutely great to deal with!

2. If retail: Appearance of the store / staff

Booking was done over the phone, did not go to office.

3. Product/industry knowledge of staff? N/A

4. If a quote is required is the quote well laid out/ clear?

I did not ask for a quote as I was more concerned about being moved on a certain date by a reputable mover. My sister had called around approx. a month prior for rates for my Dad’s move, so I was aware of what current rates for movers were.

5. Did they ask where you found them?

No, I told him how I found Ray’s on Trustedsaskatoon.com website.

6. Overall experience 1-10. – I will give them a 9.5

7. Would you return as a customer/ recommend them to close friends? Yes, and I will use them again when I move my things out of the storage facility to my new home.

8. Did anyone stand out as exceptional? or the opposite..If so who? Why? As well as the above mentioned fellow who booked my move, I found the two fellows that actually moved me to be fast, professional, friendly and compassionate. I was moving due to a breakdown in my long term relationship, and those two guys really tried to cheer me up!

9. If you made a purchase/booked a job how was the process? If so refer to the Trusted Guarantees below and give an overall mark on each if applicable.

See above #6 ..I am pleased to say they upheld all the guarantees!

TRUSTED GUARANTEES

1. Provide the service and quality promised.

2. Complete the job on time.

3. Charge the price quoted with NO surprises.

4. Communicate honestly and be responsive to customer needs.

5. Resolve any issues with customer satisfaction in mind

Please share any other comments relating to your experience with the company.

 Very Happy with Rays and Very Happy with Trustedsaskatoon!!

Trusted brags about J Marquis Salons our latest Trusted Salon on THE Saskatoon Directory of excellence!

Posted by Trusted Saskatoon | November 26, 2011 09:29

www.trustedsaskatoon.com has been serving the Saskatoon public for nearly 6 months now, and in that time we have helped over 8000 people find Trusted local businesses in the city. The Trusted team of Founder Sara Wheewlright, Trusted Consultants Heather Boyko, Renee Larre, Michelle Staruila and our newest Team member Angela Achtemichuk are working hard to change the way businesses advertise...by offering the only marketing vehicle that demands high standards that are met and maintained for inclusion!

We get wonderful messages of support and thanks from the public, and we know that with time we will have an effect on standards as a whole...so we urge you , when searching or Googling for companies when you have a need, or are doing research on who to choose ..look for TRUSTED ___(category)_________Saskatoon( or Regina) , you will be glad you did!

Our latest Trusted business on the Saskatoon directrory is one of the best Salons in the province ....not the fanciest, or most expensive by any means ..but they promise not to poison you..which is always a good start!! J Marquis Salons J Marquis has a loyal following in the city, from women ( and some men) that value HEALTHY hair care……..but believe me…that does NOT mean sacrificing glamour, color or show stopping style!

Everyone loves to have a little “me” time in the salon – a fresh look, a new colour, a gorgeous cut! But your hair in the wrong hands can turn a lovely experience into frustration, embarrassment, and occasionally (heaven forbid!) more damage. The team of stylists, headed up by the beautiful and bubbly Jana at J Marquis, are dedicated to helping unlock the true potential of your hair using the unique VIDA system! Beauty does not have to mean dangerous chemicals and harmful toxins… Simply by following the recommendations of your VIDA stylist, you will create for yourself the hair you've always wanted, providing that feeling of happiness, confidence and love. Cleaning out a few extra poisons in your life is an AMAZING feeling….why not start with your beauty products? J Marquis is 100% committed to helping you achieve a healthier lifestyle when it comes to your daily beauty regime. How did J Marquis discover the VIDA system? They were in Hollywood TEACHING stylists how to use J-Clips! That’s right….showing the stylists to the stars how to create incredible volume without a pound or two of product! Jacquelyn Marquis (founder and former owner of J Marquis Hair Salons) is the genius behind the J-Clips. Over the years she has promoted her clips not only in Hollywood but also on QVC - one of the biggest shopping channels on television. She has been HUGELY successful in training thousands of clients and fellow hair stylists in using this fantastic product!

After J-Clips had been presented, the J Marquis stylists were able to learn what all the celebrity hairstylists got to learn. One gentleman spoke for 2 hours straight. That 2 hours changed the way J Marquis operated their business, and also changed their lives….and now, many of their CLIENTS lives! What this man spoke about happens on a daily basis…. For stylists, multiple times a day….and something that people are completely un-educated about. He talked about the toxicity of the hair industry and how it's killing us, especially hairstylists who work with these chemicals and a continual basis all day long. It is scary and J Marquis believes that you should be aware…and they are on a polite and caring mission to educate, inform and reform people within the industry as stylist, owners etc….and their clients! . So without hesitation they DEMANDED to know what VIDA was all about. They took themselves down to Florida and brought back the VIDA system to Canada. J Marquis is proudly the first salon ever in Canada to have it, and now they are so fortunate to be sharing it with you - the consumer, the stylists, the one with the falling out hair, the fried ends, the burnt up hair, the man, the child.....This is for anyone and everyone who has ever had a bad hair day or who has become ill from the beauty industry.

Beyond Vida , Jana and the J Marquis team also offer many other services ...including Nails by Rene...who the Trusted founder Sara , is confident does the best nails in the city.....it took her 2 years to find her, and everyone comments on her beautiful nails and unique designs! Jana is bringing a more holistic approach to the salon , and believes firmly in treating the whole body well...not just the hair.....we suggest if you have never been to J Marquis ( which is up on Circle Drive in the same Mall as Humptys and next door to the Best mattress store in the city WISEGUYS, another Trusted businesss) ...then make a point of going along and having a look for your self.. you won't regret it, and who knows, it may change the way you think about hair care for ever!

Follow Jana's blog for some great tips and advice on a healthier you! Check out their listing here

All of our Trusted businesses go through the same rigourous process to be eligible for promotion on our Trustedwebsites...(which you can read about here) this means there is NO risk to the consumer...just Safe and Trusted Saskatoon businesses at your fingertips..all contracted to the 5 Trusted Guarantees:

1.Provide the service and quality promised.

2.Complete the job on time.

3.Charge the price quoted with NO surprises.

4.Communicate honestly and be responsive to customer needs.

5.Resolve any issues with customer satisfaction in mind.

Stay Trusted my friends...Safe and Trusted of course!
