Trusted Brags about the 2 final Trusted Plumbing businesses and the 2nd Trusted Air Conditioning & Furnace business on TrustedSaskatoon.com and offers words of caution

The fall is happening in front of our very eyes right now in Saskatoon & Regina , and what a beautiful time of year it is ..especially if the wind doesn't blow all those brown, yellow , red and gold leaves staright off the trees and we have the wonderful weather we have enjoyed all Summer follow us into the Fall!  With Fall comes cooler nights and shorter days....and that means your furnace that has been sitting idle for months and months may require some help to get going ..or perhaps it is time to replace it for a quieter, more effeicient Furnace altogether! Thats when www.trustedsaskatoon.com comes to the rescue.

Trusted Consumer Alert Beware Furnace Con Jobs .

Saskatoon is still enjoying temperatures in the 70s, but cooler days are right around the corner. There's a growing concern about fly-by-night furnace contractors who may try to rip you off

1. What's the set-up for this con game? Like many contractor cons, this game begins with a knock on the door. The guy on your step may look the part – dressed as a workman, with a clipboard and tool belt – and he’ll offer a “free inspection” of your furnace. If you resist the offer, he might tell you horror stories about a neighbor “a couple streets away” who had major problems and was unaware of the danger or remind you of some real disasters that were recently in the news, like the house in Regina that blew up in May after an undiagnosed gas leak...or the Neighbourhood in California last year that was destroyed.  

2. What happens when the con man does the inspection? Without fail, the con man finds a huge problem, one that requires immediate attention – he’ll almost always try to convince you that the house will explode or that your home is filling up with noxious gases even as you’re talking to him – and he’ll offer to get his “emergency crew” to you the same day if you’ll pay some portion of the inflated estimate up front. If you resist, he’ll threaten to “red tag” the furnace, which he says would mean you’d have to have a city inspector out to restart service at additional costs.

3. What’s the reality here? Even if your furnace has a major problem, no reputable and Trusted company is going to claim that the house is going to blow up if you don’t write a cheque in the next five minutes. Most of the time – even in the worst cases – you can shut off the gas, open a window, and be safe enough to call for a second opinion. Whenever anyone tries to convince you that you need major repairs on the spur of the moment and wants money up front to start the job, you need to stop everything and think about the decision. Don’t allow yourself to be pressured, and definitely don’t let a con man throw you into a panic. Unless you’re talking to a city employee with proper identification or a contractor you’ve called to your home because you suspected a problem, there’s no reason to drop everything and run screaming from your home on the say-so of a stranger. Con men are experts at causing pressure and panic. Don’t fall for it.

 4. Do the furnace inspections offered by local dealers make sense? Absolutely!OUR Trusted companies offer Furnace inspections for a reasonable fee and SHOW you what to look out for , so you can rest assured in the future.It’s not a bad idea to invest in the visit. Most of the time, besides checking for cracks in the pipes, leaks, and other serious problems, the worker will change the filter and get the unit ready for winter. If you don’t know anything about maintaining a furnace, that’s a great way for you to stay ahead of costly repairs and make sure that your furnace is operating properly. Plus, there’s a certain amount of trust built into the fees a reputable company charges for its work. Companies might offer free inspections, and some do that as a courtesy, counting on a percentage of those inspections resulting in lucrative jobs, but the temptation for some businesses to find something wrong – anything wrong, really -- when they’re offering their expertise is pretty high.

Trusted tells you about some changes, some news and a few other cool things their Trusted Partners in Saskatoon are up to!

Trusted has lots of things going on across the province in the next few weeks....and is very happy to be able to introduce our latest team member who has just come on board this week. Welcome to Michelle Staruiala our 3rd Trusted Consultant. Michelle lives in Regina and is a HUGE fan of Trusted and what it stands for, as a single Mum of 3 older kids, she has had times in her life when businesses have let her down and she really values what a great service to the public Trusted is! MIchelle is eager to get out into her home city of Regina and start contacting businesses she has had great exeriences with, so she can help them grow and prosper by investing in their wonderful reputations with www.trustedregina.com . If you are reading this and know some businesses that deserve promotion in Regina, go to any of the categories that don't have listings and NOMINATE a business..a link is provided! Michelle, Trusted is proud to have you on our team and we know your passion, drive and work ethic will serve Trusted well!

If you are a regular user of Trusted you may have already noticed that there have been some slight category changes happening since we started, either because we had requests and nominations, we found issues with the industry sector ( Cell phones) or we re-thought the categories & expanded them to include more options for the end user...because YOU are our priority after all. The final changes have been made and they are as follows....Carpet cleaning & cleaning services has been changed to just CLEANING SERVICES( to allow everything from maid service, carpet cleaning, furnace cleaners,auto detail, cleaning supplies options..therefore a way better category )..we are thrilled to be adding our first  Trusted business in there REALLY soon..watch this space! Contractors & Renovations has been split into CONTRACTORS ( GENERAL) and RENOVATIONS & DESIGN ( it is the most viewed catgeory with 1000's of views since the website went live) and we wanted to offer more targeted options for the end user. The Contractors tend to be more specialised , like 3 n'1 Construction in Saskatoon who specialise in roofing, framing etc.. and the Renovations and Design category has businesses that do renos ( basements, kitchens and big jobs from start to finish ) ..and we included DESIGN as they go hand in hand ..Our clients have been enjoying great results from the site and Trusted is now the most used Online Directory in Saskatoon....we have had well over 5000 visitors since we launched, and we have had a staggering 40,000+ page views....which means people LOVE what they see! Let our Trusted partners know you selected them from Trusted and that you appreciate them putting themselves 'Out there' ..they deserve the promotion and they do their best to ensure you have a great experience with them!

  1. SUPERIOR AUTO BODY has now got a website :

Click here to check it out! Monty and the crew at Superior Auto body are awesome and make the entire process smooth and easy from beginning to end...Sara the Trusted founder has been unfortunate / fortunate enough to know for herself how good they are .... she is an Immigrant from UK and still struggles with driving in the snow and ice after being here 5years....this is one of the many reasons Trusted advertises to immigrants and newcomers as a great resouce for them ..settling in a new city, new country is hard enough...but having emergency situations is even more stressful , and having a site like www.trustedsaskatoon.com which ONLY offers good businesses is a  extremly valuable. ( and advertising to immigrants that can't drive in the snow is a very smart idea for Auto Body shops especially!:) ).

Trusted welcomes Rays moving and Storage as our 2nd Trusted Saskatoon Movers & Storage and Glenwood becomes our final Trusted Saskatoon Auto Repair & Service and 2nd Saskatoon Tire store!

Trusted loves to brag about the businesses we find, and we are so excited to be introducing the 2 latest Trusted businesses to www.trustedsaskatoon.com, as they both fall in the the top 5 NIGHTMARE categories, you know the categories where you are apt to hear the most horror stories of people being ripped off or most stressed about.....we take EXTRA care at Trusted to ensure we only find the best representatives as our goal is to help YOU the public  by saving you TIME, MONEY and STRESS. When we give ' The Thumbs up' to a business it MEANS something.

GLENWOOD AUTO SERVICE

How many times have you heard about people being ripped off when it comes to getting their vehicle fixed? Single women and older people feel especially vunerable. If the vehicle is newer many people choose to pay more and take their cars back to the delaership to get fixed, as they just don't want to risk being taken for a ride ( literally).. I am sure you have heard about women being made to feel very rather stupid because they just don't know much about what go's on underneath the hood of their car...or perhaps because they have had an uncomfortable experience because of the testosterone/ sexist environment in the shop itself..whatever you have experienced personally , or heard about , there is no doubt that Auto Repair and Service fall in that Top5 ..and as we look at the website data for www.trusetdsaskatoon.com it shows that in Saskatoon it is the 5th most viewed category after Contractors, landscaping, Air Conditioning and Dentists categories!

So we are thrilled to close out our 3 Trusted Auto Repair and Service listings and our 2nd Trusted Tire listing with Glenwood Auto Service  . Let us give you a little bit of history about Glenwood and what sets them apart from those ' stereotypical' Garage services.

Glenwood Auto Service was started way back in 1973 by an ambitious 26 year old named Jim Scott. Jim purchased and took over a struggling Esso service station (at the corner of 8th Street and Preston Avenue in Saskatoon) with a loan from his father Jack Scott. One year later Jim had turned the business around and was able to pay his father back. Glenwood Esso was born. Between 1973 and 1988 Glenwood grew from three to five service bays, and became known for their outstanding service in the bays and at the gas pumps. Jim stayed at this location until 1988 when his lease was terminated. Jim decided to go on his own. He purchased an old lumber yard on the corner of College Drive and Central Avenue in Sutherland. Glenwood Auto Service opened its doors for business on July 4th, 1988. Jim brought nine employees over from the 8th Street location – eight of whom are still with the company today, which in itself speaks volumes about what kind of business this is.  Glenwood now employs twenty one fulltime and two part time staff members. Between 1988 and 2002 Glenwood grew from six to ten bays and added a full-service automotive detailing centre to its operations. In the summer of 2002 Jim retired and his oldest son, Rob, took over the business. Rob has worked for Jim since 1995. With Rob in charge, Glenwood’s principles remain the same. They recognize that auto repairs can be costly but they believe you are paying for the best service possible at Glenwood Auto Service. They will never lure you in the door with low prices or free specials that can be misleading. Their prices are based on service, professional workmanship, quality parts, and their extensive experience in the industry. Their slogan also remains the same..,.and they really do LIVE by it at Glenwood. Check out thier listing HERE for Auto Repair and HERE for TIRES

“Service is our discount” 

Our 2nd Business that we are bragging about today is a Movers Storage company in Saskatoon, and there is NO DOUBT that most people have heard or experienced first hand what happens when you have suffered at the hands of a bad moving company....Damaged possessions, rude and lazy staff, stolen items or cherished belongings that have just been thrown into badly packed boxes by packers that didn't care. The Trusted owner herself had a horrendous moving experience early this year with a local firm ....she wishes that she had found the two moving companies that are Trusted to move her 2 households into one....it was a very costly move ...with lots of damages and plenty of additional stress! 

Rays Moving & Storage

The staff at Rays Moving and Storage in Saskatoon make your moving day as stress and hassle free as humanly possible...they move you as if they were moving their own family, and the testimonials that we got from their clients just proved that they deserve the 'Thumbs up' from Trusted. Check out their listing HERE to read some of them for yourself! What is very interesting and quite a coincidence between Rays and Glenwood who we just talked about is that BOTH companies have a connection to 1973..thats 38 years ago....that in itself is an indicator of how good they are at what they do. Lets share the Rays history with you, as it really is a great story!

Originally, Ray and Leona Diehl founded the company in 1949 when they purchased a truck in hopes of making enough money for a down payment on a farm.Rays Transport was founded. In 1954, Ray's diversified into moving and storage. This remained a small part of the operation until Ray's Moving & Storage was incorporated as a separate company in 1973. Since its incorporation in 1973, Ray's has been the recipient of numerous awards, including outstanding quality service as rated by United Van Line customers across Canada for the years in 1999 through to 2003. Ray's Moving & Storage Co. Ltd. has been a member of the Saskatoon & District Chamber of Commerce and the North Saskatoon Business Association for a number of years.Rays also believes in actively supporting its local associations and athletic teams.

So if you are moving now, soon or in the future..or perhaps you have belongings you need to put into storage long or short term be smart and make the simple choice of choosing Rays a verified and approved TRUSTED moving and storage company in Saskatoon! Call Mark and the team and let them help you with your next move!
