2015 Consumer Choice Awards- WE WON!

Posted on: January 30th, 2015 by Paul Roy No Comments


Helping consumers make better choices since 1987, Consumer Choice Award is the only organization in Canada to determine the top-ranked service providers in various categories by conducting an independent market research survey that is statistically accurate.

Consumer Choice Award recipients are not selected by a panel of judges, but are chosen by you… the consumer.

Each year, consumers are surveyed all across Canada to gather their opinions, perceptions and expectations regarding the services they choose on a daily basis. Leger Marketing, the leading Canadian-owned market research firm, is mandated to conduct the consumer and business surveys.

Hi Conrad,

Just wanted to say thanks for the ‎quick turnaround on the job this morning. The excellent level of service I have received over the years is the reason I have never felt the need to go out for competitive pricing.

Thanks also to Steve for the call this morning and to Marc for attending so quickly.

Hello Tony

You are most welcome and thank you for your business over the past years.

It might be of interest to know that the service call to you this morning was our first ever “Green” service call.

When I received your email we had no vehicle to attend the site, Marc and his “can do” attitude immediately said he could do the call.

He loaded up his backpack with the part and some tools and jumped onto his mountain bike and peddled to VCC. (picture attached)

Thus we will not be charging you a truck charge for this service call and with downtown traffic the way it is the travel time is the same!

Let me know if you need anything else and have a great week.

Conrad Goff,  Service Manager
