Saskatoon Storage company tip on storage mistakes



Storage Mistakes:

Overstuffing Shelves

There’s no storage rule that says every square inch of a shelf must be crammed full of stuff. In fact, that’s a quick way to lose track of items and to create unwanted visual clutter. Instead, try alternating vertical and horizontal elements. If one section of a shelf has several books or containers, give the other side some visual breathing space with a photo or other collectible. 

                                                 

 
Relying on One Type or Size of Storage
 
Not everything you own is the same size, and not every type of storage you need should be either. A mix of sizes and types can help you quickly solve storage dilemmas and find more visually pleasing solutions for odd-shape items.
 
Ignoring Narrow Spaces

There’s a lot of storage usefulness that can be eked out of tight spaces. In this small living room, for example, a full-size side table would have overwhelmed the adjacent door and the traffic pattern. A storage-smart solution: a narrow table with a surface for a lamp and drink, plus a bottom shelf perfect for stacked boxes.

                                                 
 
Not Tending to Visual Clutter

There are lots of items that contribute to visual clutter in our home, and that can lead to storage problems. Electronics are a good example: Cords and plenty of devices may lead to tangled plug-ins and a jumble of items. Solve those visual storage problems with vertical containers in pretty patterns or colors; when it’s pleasing to look at, you’re more likely to regularly tend to your storage.
 
Cluttering Up Your Drawers

There’s a reason a junk drawer is called a junk drawer: It’s usually the repository of all those things we don’t want, or don’t know how, to deal with.  And if you’re not careful, all your drawers can quickly become clutter magnets. Instead, give yourself (and your junk drawers) a break, with organized spaces that rely on smaller trays, dividers, or other containers or bins.

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

Being a Trusted Business on the 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 weTrusted..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.
