Our Approach

We tailor our services and approach to the specific needs of each client, but here are the answers to some common questions. Don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email with any additional questions you may have.

How do you work with your clients?

We like to think we’re pretty easy to work with. 😉 If you’re interested in becoming a new client, we like to have a brief initial phone call to gather all your details (which we’ll keep on file should you wish to retain us during future visits). Depending upon the services you require, we may provide you with an errand order form (it’s important we know exactly what brand of Sour Cream & Onion potato chips you prefer), a quote for a bespoke experience, or for other services. You then decide if you want to move forward.

We will also provide you with our 24/7 service line number so you can call or text for additional assistance during your visit.

How can I trust you?

All of our team are insured and have undergone a comprehensive background check.

And, given that most of us have lived in the area our entire lives, feel free to ask around to learn what the locals have to say. You’ll probably hear some entertaining stories.

What Payment Methods Do You Accept?

We accept cash and credit/debit cards. Tips are not expected, but are appreciated if you feel they are warranted.

Anything you won’t do?

We will move mountains to help our clients have the best vacation ever, but we draw the line at anything not legal in the state of Wisconsin. Nor will we root for the Vikings. Sorry.
