Why use the Trusted Saskatoon directory when you are looking for a business in Saskatoon

Why Trusted Saskatoon? It seems that everyone these days in the City of Bridges is so busy with life, family, work and a million other commitments. When a need arises for a product or service and you can’t think who to contact where do you turn?

Trusted is here to save you time, save you hassle, save you money and do the research for you...all the business on this site are contracted to uphold the 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES.  Trusted is a local and International award winning company run by a local Saskatchewan team who CARE about the community we serve!

TrustedSaskatoon.com the Saskatoon directory you can trust

The Trusted Saskatoon directory and the Trusted marketing Services team are thrilled to be doing what we do. We really believe the Trusted community is making a difference in Saskatoon and area. Trusted is still a fairly new Saskatchewan business, some have still not heard about us, others have heard of Trustedsaskatoon.com but don't know what we do differently to other places you can source local companies. Perhaps the more cynical among us don't think we are the 'real deal' ?


One of the fundamentals of Trusted is we are an unbiased 3rd party that promotes and endorses these ' Trusted'  locally accountable businesses. Unlike the others we actually do our due diligence on the companies before they sign a contract with us to become Trusted. The verification process includes talking to their customers, and we also randomly mystery shop the partners throughout the year!  


One of the favorite moments on our work life at Trusted is when we get feedback from the users of Trusted, and this last few weeks we have received some awesome emails that we wanted to share with you! 

The first is from Claire a newcomer to Saskatoon from Alberta who messaged us via Trustedsaskatoon.com contact us page.

 

Thanks Claire we appreciate you taking the time to write to us and WELCOME to the best place in the World :)  

 

The second is from some one we know really well, as they are a long standing Trusted Partners themselves - Tammy Richmond from GPS Financial - TrustedSaskatoon Financial Planning professionals 

 

"I have been meaning to write you for a month and give you feedback about my Trusted experience from a consumer perspective: As a Trusted partner I, of course, go to Trusted first when I am looking for a service or business to meet my needs. In May I moved so the first place I looked for my movers was on Trusted Saskatoon. Two companies came up and I immediately contacted both for quotes along with other companies that were not on Trusted. The two companies on Trusted were the only ones that responded to my request for a quote. They were very similar in what they offered and price so I selected one and my experience was great. The owner of the company was calling the guys during our move to check in and see how things were going, they were on time, the cost was what was quoted and there was not one nick in any walls. I was very satisfied with my experience.

Once we had possession of our house it was clear we needed the carpets cleaned badly. So again I went to Trusted and found Hal at the Carpet Guys. This is the second time I have reached out to Hal through Trusted. He is great. He fit me in, he is fast, and he does a fantastic job. I have recommended him to others several times.

As a Trusted partner it was great to experience it from the other side. I know the process a business goes through to be a Trusted partner, I know the work Sara and her team do to make sure each company can be “Trusted” and that makes the decision of who to call so much easier. If a company is on Trusted I don’t feel the need to ask friends for recommendations or try to find out about other people’s experiences, that work has been done for me. If you are a Trusted partner why wouldn’t you reach out to the other partners for their services and products first? It just makes sense! Thanks Sara & the Trusted team, Tammy.

A message from Janice Braden.. " Yes, I have been terribly impressed by everyone who is coming in to work. Its almost like everyone feels a responsibility to prove what good workmanship should be - I hear snips of conversations about doing it right, double and triple checking, making sure things will last for years. Everything that is going in, layer by layer, is solid and of excellent quality and I couldn't be happier or more impressed. And yes, the ridiculous potlight is gone (Arlen from Age Of Electric said none of them were actually hooked to a switch anywhere..oh my!). "

JANICE's BUILD a Trusted Rebuild 

 

After the initial meeting with Janice last week, the next step was to get a Trusted Contractor in to look at Janices's house.
 
Dave Andercheck from JABA Construction, is a well recognized business leader and expert in construction , he and his team met with Janice so he could look over Janice's bomb site of a home, he was shocked at the mess and terrible workmanship.  He is now compiling a report so he can lay out just what needs to be done, and from there we can start planning the rebuild, and what we need in regards help & materials from the amazing 28 Trusted partners -
       
      So many  Trusted Saskatoon partners and 2 Trusted Regina Partners listed below!
 
 

 

 


 

Thank you also to to CNG Stone for the countertop, Aaron Loraas- from Loraas disposal for donating bins and garbage fees for the project , Rona for their huge donation and Winroc for many of the materials , and of course the new heated roofing system donated by Heated roofing in Colarado!
