Western Carpet One Has Been A Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Store For 10 Years

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the Trusted Saskatoon Partners who have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the citizens of Saskatoon and the surrounding area! In this latest article, we celebrate and recognize Western Carpet One Floor & Home - a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring Store!

We are pleased to celebrate Western Carpet One who has been a Trusted Saskatoon Flooring store for over 10 years!

The business was started by two young entrepreneurs who wanted to give people in Saskatoon great advice and outstanding service when shopping for flooring. Those same values from 47 years ago still hold true today, as David Roden, David Epp, Justin Bussiere, and Adam Brown, all co-owners, emphasize as their company culture. When talking to David Roden he always mentions that any great and successful business starts with its people. It’s that simple! Their team members, no matter what their role in the company, all contribute to their client's satisfaction, and this amazing culture is lived every day in their staff which has grown over the years to 24 today. This is truly a testament to their decades of success as being one of the top flooring stores in Saskatoon, not only because of their great selection, or amazing customer experience but because of their caring team members.

Their HUGE showroom offers a comfortable shopping experience for all types of flooring including carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl, and tile! Your Western Carpet One Floor & Home store is about more than just great-looking floors. Why? Because they offer the 'Beautiful Guarantee' that means you can shop with the confidence of knowing that the flooring you buy will look absolutely stunning in your home. If for any reason you're not happy - they're not happy either! Simply let them know and they'll replace it for FREE! That's just one more way your Western Carpet One Floor & Home flooring store goes above and beyond, after all, "customer service" is in everything they do!

Everyone remembers their tagline, “Beautiful Made Affordable”. Well, that is important to the team at Western Carpet One, as they are able to purchase the best, most beautiful flooring, hardwood, carpet, and tile on the market, but at the same time pass on their buying power of a large group, all while being local and independently owned. Their roots are here in Saskatchewan just like their customers! So contact them today, they’d love to help you!

“I have been a customer of Western Carpet One since I moved to Saskatoon, and have always been impressed with the selection, the staff, the service, and the commitment to community support. I have known David Roden, who everyone will recognize as the ‘voice' of the Western Carpet One radio ads since I was his radio rep in 2006. I know that he and his team truly care about this city, and they strive to be and do their best every day. Part of being trustworthy is offering consistent excellence, Western Carpet One lives up to that expectation as standard, and I am very proud to promote and support them.” 
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder

GIVING BACK IS ALWAYS IN STYLE AT WESTERN CARPET ONE

Western Carpet One is also consistently giving back to our local Saskatoon community through their Carpet One Cares initiatives supporting local charities and non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity, local Food Drives to support various groups, a yearly golf tournament, and gift card draw to support local family-owned restaurants. They are proud to support breast cancer research through Welcome-a-Cure, their exclusive Pink Ribbon Welcome Mat collection that has so far raised over $1 million across North America!

Thank you, David, and your team for providing 10 years of AMAZING service to the citizens of Saskatoon! In the last 10 years, Western Carpet One has been re-checked, re-verified and mystery shopped multiple times, and each time they pass with flying colours. They continue to be one of the top-rated flooring stores in Saskatoon and have always upheld our 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES of service for their 10 YEARS as Trusted Saskatoon Partners.

Ray's Moving & Storage Have Been Your Trusted Saskatoon Movers and Storage Pros For 10 Years

CELEBRATING OUR 10 YEAR TRUSTED SASKATOON PARTNERS!

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the Trusted Saskatoon Partners who have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the citizens of Saskatoon and the surrounding area! In this latest article, we celebrate and recognize Mark, Brett, and the team at Ray’s Moving & Storage - Trusted Saskatoon Movers and Storage professionals!


 
We are pleased to celebrate Ray's Moving & Storage who have been Trusted Saskatoon movers for over a decade!

Ray's Transport was founded in 1949 by Ray and Leona Diehl when they purchased a truck in the hopes of making enough money for a down payment on a farm. In 1954, Ray's diversified into moving and storage, to fill a need they saw in the local market, and in 1973 incorporated as Ray’s Moving & Storage.

Today this successful company is still family-owned and operated with Mark Lamontange as President (his Mom was actually Leona’s sister) and Brett Diehl as General Manager, whose grandfather was Ray the founder. The company has another generation entering the business, with Mark’s son Cam working full time, and Brett’s daughter working during the summers packing and helping with social media when not in university

 

Ray’s Moving & Storage is not your typical moving and storage company with a few guys and a truck or two. They are professionals who make every effort to see that their client’s move, whether across town or across the country, runs smooth, with as little stress and worry on your part as possible. They are not all about the numbers and how many moves they can cram into a day, or how fast they can get the next move done and rush on to the next one! In talking to Brett he’d rather leave that to their competition... if you call that their competition! We’ve all heard the stories of friends, family, and neighbours who had the worst experience with the mover they chose. Sometimes those Google reviews are not what they seem, and people don’t realize that until they hire a company that is late to start, is short-handed, has an undersized truck, and that don't care about damaging furniture, walls, etc.

Both Mark and Brett can count on one hand the number of bad experiences they’ve had with clients... they just don’t operate that way! Some moving companies have a full-time employee or two to handle customer complaints, and are constantly trying to fix things, give refunds, and go back to repair walls and replace furniture. Ray’s believes in doing the job right the first time, even if it takes a little longer, they don’t cut corners. That’s the quality service that this family-owned business has carried on since 1949. Ray’s success starts with their people, their team members. If you hire the right people first they are what make your business successful.

“Unfortunately I have had negative experiences with moving companies in the past, so I knew this was a category that should be on the Trusted Saskatoon directory. It is stressful enough moving offices or moving homes, without the added issues of worrying about your treasured items being damaged or not knowing what you are going to be charged until the end. Rays have a stellar reputation and it is because they take any feedback seriously and to heart. When Trusted moved offices in 2018 we hired Rays, and it was a great experience. There was no hassle and the guys moving us went over and above.”
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder       

Ray’s Moving & Storage has been the recipient of many awards over the years, including a SABEX Award for Customer Service, Outstanding Quality Service Award rated by United Vans Lines customers across Canada for the years 1999 through 2008, and Canada’s Best Managed Companies. They are also one of 200 members of United Van Lines (the only Canadian network of moving companies), the Canadian Association of Movers, UniGroup Relocation Network & the BBB. 

During these challenging times, Ray’s has put the safety and well-being of its customers, drivers, and front-line workers as their highest priority. Ray's has a long history in Saskatchewan, working with many of the province's leading organizations and corporations. Today they continue to expand their offerings with commercial and business moves as well as portable container storage options. In life, few events match the stress of moving everything you own, and it is a very personal experience and something they do not take lightly. At Ray’s, they appreciate their clients’ trusting and referring them to help with one of life's biggest transitions.

Thank you for TRUSTING us, and thank you for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the citizens of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan! They continue to be one of the best-rated moving companies in the province of Saskatchewan.

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C and Plumbing Pros For 10 Years

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the businesses that have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the public of Saskatoon and surrounding areas! In this article, we celebrate and recognize Jeff and the team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning - Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C, and Saskatoon Plumbing Pros!

We are pleased to celebrate JOB Heating & Air Conditioning who have been a Trusted Saskatoon partner for over 10 years!

The JOB Heating & Air Conditioning team is well known for the air conditioning, furnace, and plumbing work they do for both residential and commercial customers. Jeff Bolton, worked up from employee to partner and he is now the trusted face of the company which currently has six employees. Jeff has been in the HVAC and Plumbing industry since 1989. With this many years of plumbing and heating expertise under his belt, he has a clear vision and commitment to always putting the customer and his community first. Spending many years as a volunteer, serving the community's greatest needs has given Jeff the right balance of drive and determination to always do the right thing. He has a really big heart and is dedicated to always putting the customer's needs first, he prides himself on JOB’s record of integrity, honesty, and service, and he takes being trusted very seriously.

As Jeff would say…”I do what I say, and say what I do!”

“One of Jeff’s biggest challenges over the years has been competing with kijiji’s plumbers and other HVAC companies that don’t abide by reasonable industry standards or even properly insure or register their businesses. Companies that are often run by folks that over promise and under deliver, they often undercut on price to get the job and end up not delivering on the service. Many try to make it up by high pressure sales on work or products the customer may not need. This is the total opposite of how Jeff and his team operates and as someone who was ripped off by an unscrupulous company myself I am wary. I am happy to say that I have used JOB personally several times over the last 10 years and the experience is always stellar."
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder

The JOB Heating & Air team also prides itself on being recognized as a leader in water heating system technology for new in-floor and boiler installations in Saskatoon. Jeff is passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious. What you see truly is what you get with Jeff, he is authentic and cares deeply about always leaving a good impression with clients and it is obvious that he values and supports his team, that’s why he wanted to create a business where people love to work! 

When asked about what drives Jeff, he explains his mantra around the shop is.

 “We do every job as if it was our own mother’s house. We treat each other (my coworkers) with respect and dignity and that just becomes the way that we treat everyone, especially our customers.” 

A great example of why JOB Heating & Air Conditioning has been a 10 Year Trusted Saskatoon Partner.

Remember JOB... because they are always striving to live up to their tagline... "Your Comfort is Our Concern!"

Thank you for TRUSTING us, Jeff, and your team, and thank you for providing 10 years of AMAZING service to the people of Saskatoon! In the last 10 years, JOB has been re-checked, re-verified and mystery shopped, and each time they pass with flying colours. They continue to be one of the best heating, air-conditioning, and plumbing shops in Saskatoon and area and have always upheld our 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES of service for their 10 YEARS as Trusted Saskatoon Partners.

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the local businesses that have been Partners with us since we launched in 2011.

We are pleased to shine the light on Palliser / EQ3 who have been a TRUSTED Saskatoon Furniture store for over 10 years!

Did you know that Palliser Rooms / EQ3 is an independent family-owned furniture store that has been operating in Saskatoon since 2002. Brian and Judy Bird first owned and ran the local furniture store for about a decade and a half, then when the opportunity arose their daughter Allison, and son-in-law Tristan Rawlings, were able to purchase, and now manage the family business. There’s not a day that goes by where you won’t see Tristan at the store making sure every aspect of their operation runs smoothly. From the back office and computer systems to warehouse and shipping he makes sure customer needs and customer satisfaction are his first priority. 

Palliser Rooms / EQ3 specializes in offering a generous selection of contemporary furnishings and a personalized service that is forward-thinking and client-focused. The vast majority of their product lines are Made in Canada, which is not the case with most furniture stores, and this means a lot to their loyal customers. As you walk into their beautiful store it kind of takes your breath away, your eyes get wider, and you’re like a kid in a candy store as you can’t wait to start shopping and trying out the furniture for size, colour, feel and fit. You can’t get that experience online, that’s for sure!

Tristan and his dedicated team of fifteen describe their philosophy as one that "embodies' an 'all about choices' ideology. Whether you have an inherent 'do-it-yourself’ personality or find decoration is an overwhelming process, their staff is committed to providing valuable information, inspiration, and the necessary tools to make your project, large or small, a success. For them you can really put your feet up and get comfortable because they know shopping for furniture is a personal experience and IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU, the customer! There’s definitely no pressure at Palliser Rooms / EQ3, as they welcome you to take five minutes or come back five times to make your decision.

“Trusted is extremely happy to promote Palliser / EQ3. I have been impressed with the integrity of the company from the very beginning. Tristan truly cares about his staff, their  customers and the reputation of the company. They bend over backwards to provide the best experience and I have always been very happy with the standard of the product and the level of customer service when I have shopped there with my family."
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder 

Come and visit their spacious showroom which is thematically focused, visually stunning, very intimate and inviting! You will not be disappointed... and you will be excited to tell all your family and friends. I recently talked to a new family that just moved to Saskatoon and one of their first stops after buying their new home was to head to Palliser Rooms / EQ3 and furnish their home with the best product and selection this city has to offer! They were so pleased with the amazing customer service, the huge selection, and the great prices.

Thank you for TRUSTING us, and thank you for providing 10 years of AMAZING service to the people of Saskatoon! In the last 10 years, Palliser Rooms / EQ3 has been re-checked, re-verified and mystery shopped, and has passed each and every time. They continue to be one of the best furniture stores in Saskatoon and area and have always upheld our 5 TRUSTED GUARANTEES of service for their 10 YEARS as Trusted Saskatoon Partners.
