Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice: Can't get to an errand? The Mocks can help

Jim and Terrah Mock

How many times have you been overwhelmed at work and needed to run a quick errand?

You had to stop everything, leave your office and run pick up the dry cleaning or meet a repairman at your home. Or maybe you needed someone to get groceries or a meal, pick up a prescription or simply check in on an elderly family member. The list goes on and on. We have all been there and we have all thought how nice it would be if we had a friend that we could trust to handle these quick errands for us.

This is what led local entrepreneurs Terrah and Jim Mock to open Signature Errand Services in Statesboro.

"We are both busy professionals who struggled with these same issues," Jim Mock said. "After talking with local businesses to determine if there was a need for an errand service we decided to give it a try. We launched our Facebook page and website over a month ago and have promoted the service through social media and word of mouth. The response has been overwhelmingly positive."

Some of their most popular services is picking up and delivering dry cleaning, picking up packages and purchases from local stores, groceries and food delivery. With prices starting at $5 for these services, they make it affordable for everyone.

"We give our customers the peace of mind knowing errands that they may not be able to get to will be completed quickly and professionally," Mock said. "Our services are perfect for individuals, small businesses and even larger companies. We tailor our services to match the needs of our customers allowing them to be more productive in their day all for an affordable and reasonable rate."

Video rental returns, taking cars in for an oil change, serviced or washed, "waiting for" the repairman, checking on your home when you are out of town, bringing in the mail and watering your plants to taking a family member to an out of town doctor's appointment have been a few of the services Mock and his team have helped clients with.

Their website is very informative and intuitive with pricing and options for services. You can even provide them your grocery list and they will purchase your groceries, deliver them to your home and put the items in your fridge.

"Our goal is to become your new "best friend," Mock said. "There is always something people need help with, but don't have someone that they can call to handle it for them. From the response so far, we are helping meet a need in our community. Let us know your need and we will do our best to meet it for you in a timely, professional and affordable way."

I met Jim through social media and really got to see him in action during Hurricane Matthew. Jim reached out early in the week and offered his services free of charge.

He stepped in and stepped up in a critical time for our community and no job was too large or small. His knowledge of the community and compassionate heart is impressive. He really wants to help people in any way that he can. Combined with his wife Terrah and a capable staff, I know our community will embrace Signature Errand Services as they help meet the needs of the Boro. Find them on the web at www.signatureerrandservices.com or call them at (912) 225-0197.
