Tip 1

Every season in Saskatchewan brings with it its own set of truly unique challenges. Every vehicle on the road is as unique as the person behind the wheel. The Team at Whitmore take the time to evaluate your needs as well as those of the vehicle you drive and tailor your maintenance plan to save you money and the costly down time associated with unexpected break down!

Below are some of the questions I’ve been asked in my Twenty plus years as an Automotive Professional:

What do I have to do for my car to get it ready for Spring?

I always recommend regardless of the km travelled to change the oil and have a complete inspection!

Do I need to have it cleaned? It is a great idea to protect your investment by having your car professionally cleaned. Corrosion from the salt and harsh winter temperature are hard on the interiors and exteriors. A thorough cleaning inside and out removes contaminants and leaves your car ready for a fun and trouble free summer!

How soon do I have to remove my winter tires?

Temperature is the enemy of modern day winter tires. They are made up of a softer and pliable compound that wears prematurely in above zero temps!

How do I go Green and do my part?

Keep your car in top notch condition. Perform manufacturer recommended services. These recommendations help fuel economy, maintain your warranty reduce your carbon footprint and help the resale value of your baby!

What is a Tuneup?

A tuneup these days is a very broad term. Tuneups on gasoline powered vehicles differ from those of diesels and Hybrids. Gasoline vehicle require ignition parts and fuel system servicing to not only keep the car running well but to also help with fuel economy up and emissions down! Diesels require injector servicing, filters and intake/egr cleaning. Hybrid components are pretty much built to be maintenance friendly as recommended by the manufacturer.

REGINA HEALTH EXPERT provides a TRUSTED TIP on NON SURGICAL Cosmetic Treatments on the REGINA DIRECTORY

 NON  SURGICAL Cosmetic Treatments

Do you find that flaws in your appearance stand in the way of your confidence?

A non-surgical cosmetic procedure may be the solution you are looking for to improve your self-esteem!

Botox treatments, laser treatments, and Restylane treatments to enhance your natural appearance. What is Botox?

Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It’s the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called botulism. Doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems, including: temporary removal of facial wrinkles, severe underarm sweating, cervical dystonia, uncontrollable blinking, and misaligned eyes. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. Side effects can include pain at the injection site, flu-like symptoms, headache and upset stomach. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids. You should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breast feeding. ( See the You Tube Video below for a Demonstration- and before and after shots)

What are Laser Treatments?

Laser treatment is a popular non-surgical way to deal with various skin conditions. Laser treatments provide effective lasting results. These treatment sessions take various times and allow you to return to work or daily activities immediately after a session. While some patients may be able to tolerate a laser treatment without the use of anaesthetic, others may find the application of an anaesthetic cream helpful. The anaesthetic cream can provide adequate relief from discomfort during the procedure. Fortunately, the complications of laser hair removal are rare if it's done by an experienced and skilled physician. You should expect a certain degree of pain, swelling and redness after each treatment session.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a temporary injectable that consists of a stabilized hyaluronic acid and a physiological sodium chloride solution. Restylane is a gel that is injected into the skin to add volume to lips and lift wrinkles and folds. Restylane consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body. Once in the skin, Restylane works by creating volume. Restylane can be used to smooth wrinkles, enhance lips and shape facial contours. The most common areas are the glabella lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth) and the lips, although other sites can also be treated. During treatment, crystal-clear Restylane gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted and smoothed. The procedure is simple and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the procedure, your physician may anesthetise the treatment area. Restylane dissolves naturally with time, and a follow up treatment will be needed if you want to maintain the results. Restylane, like many non-surgical procedures, does not have to be performed by a plastic surgeon, but care should be taken when choosing a clinic.

Trusted Founder is inteviewed by Saskatoon Star Phoenix and Global Regina as www.trustedregina.com launches to public

Websites help identify trustworthy businesses   
By Jenn Sharp, The StarPhoenix April 19, 2012    
 
Sara Wheelwright began Trusted Saskatoon less than a year ago and launched Trusted Regina on Monday. The websites are a service directory of businesses Wheelwright and her staff have fully researched. Trusted partners are held accountable for their business dealings and contribute tips and advice to the website for consumers. Along with the sites are blogs full of mystery shopping reviews conducted by the Trusted staff and a YouTube channel. Here, Wheelwright tells StarPhoenix business reporter Jenn Sharp how she's grown her business so fast and why she started it.  
 
Q: What's the concept of Trusted Saskatoon?  
A: I thought there was a gap in the market. I have an 18year background in advertising. I wanted to provide something that works for the public - an agency that finds businesses that deserve the promotion and informs the public about them in a different way. People are going online for answers now. We want to make the whole process simple. We chose the 40 most-used advertising categories. When they go to our site they have a choice of a maximum of three in each category. We try to find different personalities for mortgage specialists and real estate agents. We also demand a lot from the Trusted partners. We become a group that works for each other. If any of the partners lets us down it affects everybody. They're contracted to uphold the five Trusted guarantees. They're told that if we get a complaint and it's found they've done something with intent or lost integrity, they'll be removed immediately from the site. We don't mess around.  
 
Q: Why do you only have three per category?  
A: We're trying to make the process easy. If you have 10, how do you choose? The listings are very comprehensive. The testimonials are from surveys we do with clients. We ask for 25 clients' names and numbers from each of the businesses. We then call a portion of them and we're looking from good to great reviews. We're talking to the public and they tell us great stories about their dealings with the businesses. We use those testimonials to start off the listings - real testimonials from real people. I think we're the only place online that qualifies these testimonials because we're speaking to the people ourselves.  
 
Q: How many staff do you employ?  
A: I have four lovely ladies. Two are based in Saskatoon and two in Regina. As we expand, I'm going to be solidifying the province first of all and then going into Alberta, starting with Calgary, we'll be taking on more staff. There's a lot of work to signing up companies. We're constantly in touch with the partners and asking them for tips for the site. People do research online before they buy. It's much nicer to have people in Saskatoon or Regina giving potential customers tips before they buy. It's elevating our partners as the experts and getting them engaged with the public.  
 
Q: How did you come up with the idea?  
A: I moved here from England in 2006. When you immigrate to the middle of Canada, it's not worth the freight so I had sold everything I owned in England and came over with clothes and shoes - all the important things! I had to fill a house with everything. The excitement of shopping wore off because it's really not what it was when I was back in England and I knew the shops. It was so labour intensive. I stumbled upon some good ones but a lot of the smaller businesses don't have the budget to get your attention. I had some bad experiences. It's easy to do business when things go easy. Once things don't that's really the difference between a good and a great business. One of the things that I always speak about with the trusted partners is that nobody should be in a position of loss because they chose to deal with you. That's a foundation of Trusted Saskatoon.   
 
Q: You're expanding rapidly - how have you done this?  
A: Trusted Saskatoon launched May 30 last year. Scotia Bank is a preferred bank of immigration and they hand out flyers to immigrants that come to see them. We focus on everybody because everybody has those moments where a need arises and they don't know who to turn to. We also run ads on community radio on the weekend in every single foreign language show. On seven of the shows we have the ad voiced in the language of the show. An old marketing term is 'speak to the dog in the language of the dog.' One of the things that you miss as a new person coming to a new country is your language, your food and your music. That's a way to engage with the immigrant population who, a lot of the time, become insulated because they've been ripped off. We get a lot of people looking at auto repair and service too. A lot of our fans on Facebook are women. I think we appeal more to women because they tend to be the ones that do the calling. This started because I got ripped off when I first came here by a plumbing company. Thanks to that company that was the big kick to put this idea down on paper. I got a phone call from one of my contractors who's amazed at how many calls he gets - about one a day. He said that his business, since last year, has grown 400 per cent. He went from employing one guy to three crews. More importantly, he's making sure that he instils that integrity and honesty in the people that work for him. Those are the people that deserve this recognition.

Here John from Bergens  shares a Trusted REGINA AUTO BODY Tip on Color Matching!

Let's say you get a little scratch or a ding on your car. You'd like to match the exact color to have it repaired and looking good. If your car is older, the colors might not be easy to find. So how do you match auto paint?

First, you need to know a few things about automotive paint:

•Automotive paint is made of resin, pigment and solvent.

•Resin determines the durability of your paint and the quality of the application [source: autobodysupply].

•Solvent provides the right amount of viscosity, so the paint can be applied [source: autobodysupply].

•Pigment comes in powder form and includes colors or toners that are mixed together to give the finish. 

When choosing a color to match your car:

1.Find the color code for the original paint on your car. You'll need the manufacturer's name, the car's model number and the year the car was manufactured. With this information, you may be able to find your car's color code on the manufacturer's Web sites, but it depends on the age of your car. You can also find your car's color code on the car's identification plate (sometimes called the Service Parts Identification) [source: robertspaintcare].

2.Take the color code to an auto body supply shop or repair shop and order the paint. Keep in mind that some cars may have two tones and need two or more paint colors [source: autobodysupply].

3.Mix the paint until you get the exact color you need: start with the variations in lightness and darkness and adjust the hue until it matches.

Always blend the color to achieve a color match. Even if the color looks close enough, blend it! Remember, you don't want the color of the spot you're repairing to be too light or too dark, and you have a lot of variables to deal with. Matching the exact color is especially important when spot repairing. Check out the You Tube Video below for more tips!
