8 Mobile Services in Calgary
Sometimes, even leaving the house is just too much. Luckily you're in Calgary where mobile services and delivery options abound. Here are eight of our favourites.
Errands on Me
Errands on Me, a service that runs in Airdrie (and some Calgary areas), is designed to take those balance-tipping errands off your hands. Need someone to buy your groceries and bring them to you? Pick up your dry cleaning? Get medicine for your sick kids, deliver flowers to your mom, drive your car to the mechanic, or look after your mail and plants while you are away? Colette has got you covered. She'll purchase items and deliver them to you at your convenience for a flat fee from $10 to $30, depending on the distance and errand. She'll even buy birthday gifts for those countless parties that fill your kids' busy social calendars.

Mamaluv offers healthy, breastfeeding-friendly meals, such as Ginger and Lime Chicken with Udon noodles or Seven Layer Vegetarian Lasagna, conveniently delivered. Dishes are prepared locally by Mamaluv's exclusive personal chef, and dietary restrictions can be accommodated upon request.
Mobile Spa Services
The word around town is that Cheli Guerrero-Schwartz is the person to call when you need to be pampered. The savvy mom and entrepreneur behind Mobile Spa Services is specialized in relaxation and beautification. Treat yourself, or give a gift certificate as a present to another deserving mom. Cheli arrives at your home for the treatment with an arsenal of professional products; you'll be feeling like a princess in no time.
Synergy in Motion
Tracy Stokoe is the savvy mom to two tweens and the owner of Synergy in Motion. Tracy's specialty is sports massage and massage for those with injuries or illness (although she can do relaxation and therapeutic massage as well). Tracy also gives chair massages and will give your kids a rub-down too. Synergy in Motion's prices start at $50 (plus tax) for a half hour session.
SPUD is certainly one of our fave grocery delivery picks. It has a very user-friendly website that allows you to create lists (so repeat shopping trips are even quicker and easier than your initial order). You can even set up standing orders with direct debit. SPUD products fall on the healthier end of the spectrum. Most are organic and we've found the produce tastes fresher and yummier than general grocery store fare.
Sunterra Market sells a dizzying array of Alberta farmed products. Started four decades ago by Stan and Flo Price, it continues to be family owned; produce is still managed by the Price children. Delivery costs $8 and groceries arrive the same day but you must be there to receive the delivery.
Time is Money
Time is Money is a local concierge service that's guaranteed to make our lives run a little smoother. From a quick run to the mall to grab last minute school supplies to finding a dog sitter or organizing a blowout birthday party, there's no situation these gals can't sort out for us.
Jaida Green-Barber Mobile Massage
Say good-bye to sore muscles and babysitting fees, with this local mom of two and registered massage therapist who comes to your home as you luxuriate in a one hour massage once the kids are tucked in.
With flexible hours, this soothing treatment works well with your busy schedules.
Good to Know: Receipts are issued for each treatment and massage therapy is covered under most benefits packages.
