  • How do Certified Partners get on TrustDALE.com?

    We meet with all potential partners in person to discuss their business in order to determine if we are a good fit for each other.

    If we deem that the case then the potential partner completes and application and a customer service questionnaire.

    TrustDALE then completes a 7 Point Review Process investigation of that business.

    If the potential partner passes through our process then they are offered an opportunity to become a TrustDALE Certified Partner.

    TrustDALE is a free service to consumers. We connect consumers to good quality companies at no charge. And we do not ask for your personal information in order for you to be able to use our referral services. We also investigate dishonest companies who have harmed consumers at no cost to the consumer submitting the problem.

  • Why would a company no longer be on TrustDALE.com?

    There are times when we must part ways with a company if they do not maintain our level of standards. There are also times when a company may decide they are no longer a fit for TrustDALE. Both occur very rarely. We have a very high renewal rate with our partners and are proud of the companies we represent.

  • What makes TrustDALE different from other online referral services?

    TrustDALE let’s you be in control by deciding the companies you want to contact. Other services take all your personal information and then sell that information to multiple companies who then begin calling you. TrustDALE really investigates our partners to make sure that you do not get scammed. And if you have an issue we have real people right here in Atlanta to help you when needed.

    Other referral services allow companies to be a part of their service by simply writing a check. TrustDALE actually turns down companies that do not meet our standards. We choose companies that we know you will be able to rely on for good quality services.
