Our services are affordable, time saving and stress relieving for you and your busy lifestyle. So, redeem your time and buy a few extra hours from us!

Friendly, organized and industrious: Those three words are the perfect description of the Errand Runners team. We are “people-people” who love using our organizational skills to help others. Errand Runners will always provide you with professional service and a positive, stress-free assistant experience. Heather Burton, President and Founder of Errand Runners, has over 20 years of experience as a small business entrepreneur and operator. With a flair for organization and a knack for customer service, Heather was eager to use her skills to fulfill the need for affordable errand services in the Sacramento metro-area. The vision of Errand Runners is to give our clients the chance to “buy back” one of life’s most rare and valuable commodities—your time!

How do I make a payment to Errand Runners for services?
We offer our customers a variety of payment options. We accept cash, debit and credit cards.

How much notice do you require for your services?
Generally two business days is acceptable, although I can try to accommodate same-day service. Errand Runners is based in Carmichael, but serves the Sacramento Metro area. 15 miles of travel is factored into each hour of service. Each mile after the first 15 will incur a 50-cent a mile fee, in addition to the flat rate of service.

What are your hours?
As most of the errands we do involve working within typical “business” hours, we hold those same hours in our business. Our Errand Runners work Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. However, due to the unique nature of some of our services we are also flexible to accommodate unusual morning/evening/weekend hours.
