Dubai: A new Dubai firm is promising to run your errands for you – and quickly.
Mashaweer Errands Services co-founder Hani El Sherbini came up with an idea to help people save time as they go about their busy lives.
Sherbini said Mashaweer – Arabic for “journeys” – will run errands for private and corporate clients, from delivering flowers and picking up laundry to doing mass deliveries.
“Finding the time to fit in essential daily errands can be stressful and limits people’s well-deserved free time,” said Sherbini. “We don’t just simply deliver packages, but we actively manage clients’ tasks,” he said.
Staff currently run a fleet of a dozen motorcycles and vans. Charges vary according to distance. For example, it costs Dh58 to delivery an item by motorcycle from Business Bay to Arabian Ranches, and Dh138 to delivery a package by van from Mirdif to Discovery Gardens.
Customers can book their errand orders online (www.mashaweeuae.com) where a web calculator gives the estimated charge for an errand service using an interactive Google map.
