For as long as he could remember, Paul Stokes has been an errand runner for his friends and family. Helping people complete their “To-Do” lists gives Stokes a sense of gratification. With the motto “Freedom is in your future” City Errands is becoming an essential service to some of his regular customers.

According to Stokes, the business blossomed from something he had been doing for friends and family over the past decade. As a “buddy with a van,” Stokes found himself being called upon to help out with mostly any task. Through the help of social media, City Errands is growing a steady amount of buzz. They offer a variety of time-saving or task-completion services, 24/7 throughout Vancouver. Services range from general errands, personal assistance and corporate level requests. Each service is charged per errand (with a maximum of 1 hour before additional fees kick in) and there needs to be a 12 hour notification time. Requests can be made for outside of the Greater Vancouver area, however additional charges may apply.

Since opening in August 2014, Stokes has added a team of “Errand Runners” to his roster. Together, the team has assisted many Vancouver families, businesses and elderly individuals across the GVA. City Errands offers a 10% discount to seniors as well as a 25% discount on Tuesdays.

For all Vancity Buzz readers, City Errands is offering a 50% discount of the first errand request. Simply mention “Vancity Buzz Errands” at the time of your request and your savings will apply to your bill!
