Providing Quality From A Young Age

About the Owner:  Michael Di Marzo

The name Blue Wagon comes from when I, Michael Di Marzo, had big dreams as an eleven-year-old. I was bursting at the seams to take my shot in the business world. A passion for hard work and serving the community led me to start cutting grass for a few neighbors. I bought some basic equipment, a little blue wagon, and jumped right in. Over the years I continued the business and grew both professionally and personally. Those years of my life have been ingrained into the company. Pulling my blue wagon all over the neighborhood taught me perseverance and showed me that I can truly achieve anything. I'm now a university student and can drive so the blue wagon has evolved into a truck but it only seemed right to maintain the sentiment I began with. The dream of a successful business and enough motivation to make it work. When you hire Blue Wagon you become a part of that story, you contribute to a local student-owned business and help that eleven-year-old achieve his dream. In return, you receive the utmost quality and a lasting commitment to providing you with the best service.

Leading The Industry

At Blue Wagon, we don't want to be like every other Chuck-in-a-truck landscaping company out there. It is our goal to raise standards of professionalism in every facet of our business. Keep reading below to see how we consistently do that:

1. We Pay Above A Living Wage

28% above the industry standard pay

Today's world is filled with large corporations that work their employees to the bone and in return pay them nothing but minimum wage - Blue Wagon is not one of them. At Blue Wagon, employee wages start at $20 an hour. In 2022, our average wage for field workers was $23 an hour - $5 above what the government deems a living wage in Calgary and well above the industry average of $18 per hour. Not only that, but we also ensure that all employees receive WCB, CPP, EI, and numerous other benefits. You can feel rest assured knowing that the folks maintaining your property are working for a company that makes their well-being a top priority.

2. We Are Fully Insured

At Blue Wagon, we understand that it is important to make sure the people working on your property are fully covered in case something ever went wrong. That is why we have always carried commercial liability insurance, workers compensation, cyber security insurance, and more. We will always take all commercially reasonable measures to protect you and our workers. Not only that, but Blue Wagon has a strict PPE policy. We always wear ear and eye protection, steel toe boots, pants, and other protective gear. All employees also take part in safety training. Because of this, we so far have a 0% injury rate having worked for hundreds and hundreds of properties.

3. Quality and Proffesionalism

We still have every single original customer from when we started in 2014

Providing professional service is our #1 priority. That is why we do things like: wear uniforms, drive lettered trucks, close gates, use new commercial grade equipment, offer automated billing via credit card, always show up on the day we are scheduled for, and much more. We currently have all 5-star reviews on google. Blue Wagon even still has every single one of our original customers from when the owner, Michael Di Marzo, was pulling his little wagon around the neighborhood in 2014.
