Now that’s what I call shelf space!
There are certainly a lot of names and places but when I click on the towns that I service, my name comes up but so do the names of about twenty other inspectors who are nowhere near the particular town. Not very helpful for a consumer who is trying to find an inspector in a certain area.
I have to agree. I pull up my area and there are local inspectors maybe 8 miles away that are listed well below an inspector that is over 90 miles away, and the zip codes are miles and miles apart also.
There are some that have zip codes that abut each other but that is in the middle of Puget Sound. To actually get from one point to another in that instance is over 100 or more miles.
So how are the rankings figured out? By actual road mileage or just proximity from one zip code to another?
Ok, there are some obvious problems with this system. If you look up Gananoque Ontario Canada, I am listed well down the page. The trouble is that, judging by the telephone numbers I am THE ONLY INSPECTOR LISTED WHO LIVES IN OR NEAR GANANOQUE!!!
Select Kingston Ontario and I am listed near the top even though I live 20 miles away ( That’s Ok as a large portion of my business comes from there, I am just pointing out an obvious shortcoming of the system)
What are the parameters used to decide the list positions?
just did a search on my town here is what I got
Here are some locations near Elginburg, Ontario that you might be interested in:
- Glenburnie, ON (about 2 miles away from Elginburg)
- Kingston, ON (about 6 miles away from Elginburg)
- Lansdowne, ON (about 6 miles away from Elginburg)
- Elginburg, On, ON (about 7 miles away from Elginburg)
it would seem I live 7 miles from my own home town withen my town.
along with the fact I was 6th in placement as well, and I did a search on address and I do infact have elginburg as my addy.
George you came one ahead of me, so that means your closer to my house then I am, so on your way home grab a bag of milk and a jar of peanut butter will ya
You Canadians are kinda strange at times
Remember all this is not all science but sort of an art form
Good and getting better
Michael, We by milk in bags. KwikTrip sells it.
Well, you’re kinda strange too then. I think we tried that a few years ago and the bag got real soggy and leaked. It just didn’t catch on with the buying public. Now, with the prolific use of plastic bags then I suppose we should revisit that offering.
Strange or not we’ve been buying it this way for better than 10 years.

KWIK TRIP’S MILK IN A BAG… IT’S A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF CONVENIENCE.
Isn’t that something! Not much, but something nonetheless.
besides kids can handle the bags easier than a gallon jug, prevents from crying over spilled milk
I have been called worse :mrgreen:
We learn from the giver of milk and not necessarily from the package it comes in.
I must have lived to close to Canada I guess. ha. ha.
Bill - chunky or smooth?
Good grief! First you put milk in bags…now you have it in chunky and smooth???..this is just too much! :roll:
Now they need beer in a bag and we might have something.
George, Milk it’s watery, cottage cheese is the chunky stuff and sour cream is the smooth stuff or was that yogurt, never could tell the difference both are right up there with pennicillian
and beer comes in tall boys, king cans and my favorite Kegs woohoo keg partys on the lake god bless barley,
Beer it’s not just for breakfast anymore
that was the peanut butter
Chunky or smooth!
Mmmmmm . . chunky milk . . . . Mmmmmm.
( excuse me while I leave the room to barf :shock: )
