UrbanErrands is a Lifestyle Management Outfit designed to sell Time to busy persons and Job opportunities to the unemployed. We connect busy people to thoroughly vetted, insured and independent persons who are willing to work to run errands.
UrbanErrands was inspired by my inability to find the time to refill a home Cooking Gas Cylinder for more than 14 days due to the demands of my 9-5 job. At that point, I thought to myself, “shouldn’t there be an outfit which connects busy persons to unemployed persons willing to run errands to earn a living?”
