Errand Runners LLC is a new personal concierge service operating in the Anacortes area. Their services include shopping, laundry, house cleaning and even helping plan a romantic evening or get-away.

This service can be anything from basic house cleaning, laundry, tackling those jobs you keep putting off, clerical work, Internet research, Costco shopping, deposits, picking up lunch, dinner or coffee, cleaning up after construction work, filling in as a temp, picking out a gift for a loved one, helping you plan a romantic evening or get-away, making reservations, you name it!

A press release says "We are here to help in any way we can. Errand Runners is staffed with multi-talented people who all take pride in doing any job to the absolute best of our ability and discretion is one of our greatest priorities."

No job is too big or too small. There is a minimum of $15 for any errand taking around ½ hour or so, such as running to pick up and delivering an order for lunch or coffee within a reasonable proximity. The hourly rate is $35 an hour. If the service involves driving outside of Anacortes, such as doing your Costco shopping for you, there is a mileage charge of $0.58 per mile.

If you would like to save money and guarantee regular service each month, we have  retainer packages available. The Basic Retainer Package of 15 hours per month is $472. This is a 10% savings from the hourly rate! The Premium Retainer Package of 30 hours per month is a 15% savings at $892 per month! You can also buy someone you love the gift of time with one of our gift certificates!
