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!

End Of the Roll

We are so proud to have a wonderful TRIO of Trusted Flooring stores to promote on trustedsaskatoon.com , and End of The Roll is an extremely worthy 3rd and final listing to close the category. All you have to do is take note of the fact that they are winners of the 'Consumer Chioce Awards' for Top Flooring Store 2010, Top Flooring Store 2011 and Top Flooring Distributor 2011 , and you will see why they came highly recommended to Trusted. The owner Rod Mellquist leads from the front and loves what he does for a living ..the staff are helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and you can tell they enjoy working in the store and for Rod....which makes for a great shopping environment...NO PRESSURE at all! The selection of flooring available is very impressive...you name it they have it..aswell as some bargain 'end of the rolls ' too!  

 They believe that customer service doesn’t end with you choosing your flooring; they will help you schedule your installation, provide product education, and choose accessories. Your experience should be nothing but the best. End Of The Roll is a company that stands behind their products and services (each locally owned franchise is part of the End Of The Roll family and being a part of each community is important to them)

As they say " SEE IT..LOVE IT....GET IT" and at those prices we can see why they do so well..check out their listing here on  www.trustedsaskatoon.com

 Trusted community involvement

Trusted believes in giving back and will be having a consistent presence in community charities/ non profits and events  in all of the Trusted cities we service..in July we sponsored the Tourism Saskatoon golf tournament , we are partners with Tourism Saskatoon , as we know many newcomers visit places they are moving to BEFORE they move and we want to be able to provide them with Trusted resources..think about it .. things like Trusted Hotels for when they visit ...and then Trusted realtors, mortgage brokers, legal and financial services to assist them if they are considering relocation to the city..then of course we have all the Trusted services and stores they need once they get here..how better to give a good impression to potential newcomers than to provide a helpfull resource like www.trustedsaskatoon.com to ensure their first experiences are positive ones...check out Tourism Saskatoons banner ad below that appears on our home page!
