As two health-insurance agents were working with their senior clients, they discovered how few seniors had undertaken the estate-planning process—either due to lack of understanding or fear of cost. They decided to change that. And so, in 2006, they founded Arctic Trust: a firm dedicated to helping customers understand the importance of their legal documents and how to use them.
Today, Arctic Trust's fleet of legal consultants perform the full spectrum of estate-planning services—from creation of Power of Attorney to the building of Trusts to the writing of Legal and Living Wills. These services combine to determine the future allocation of a client's personal assets, as well as children and that painting in the living room that always looks like it's watching you. As a further measure, The Glacier Benefit maintains the integrity of each document, allowing the owners to make changes at regular intervals, free of charge.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle.

More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical system maintenance, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

Though their brand reaches throughout the United States, each MaidPro office is helmed by owners and operators who live in the areas they service.

Additionally, MaidPro only uses cleaning products that customers know and trust to free surfaces from dirt, bacteria, and stains from family food-fight night.
