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.
