Market Overview Announces Expansion into Local Errands Market


Following up on recent success in the peer to peer marketplace, CitizenShipper expands its operations to include local errands.

(PRWEB) October 31, 2012

CitizenShipper,, the world's largest commission free load board, launched a local errands service this week.

CitizenShipper builds upon the concept of 'citizens assisting citizens' and is a new service aimed at connecting people who do not have the time or equipment to ship items and freight loads locally or long distance, with people who can actually perform the shipping. Expanding on this concept, CitizenShipper has evolved to include local errands connecting people who have everyday tasks with people who can get those tasks done. CitizenShipper encourages its users to live smarter by giving access to talented and trustworthy citizens locally, who can help with shipping and now errands.

As a novel marketplace, Citizenshipper connects 'Citizen Shippers' people who need things shipped, with "Citizen Couriers," a vast network of name and address verified individuals who have the time and the equipment to help with shipping needs. CitizenShipper embraces the spirit of self actualization and entrepreneurship allowing members to grow their own business based on their talents.

"We realized that the website architecture could easily be expanded from simply people helping with shipping needs, to people who could also help with day to day tasks and errands," explains CEO Richard Obousy. "The US and Canada contains a vast reservoir of highly talented and skilled people, many of whom have time on their hands to help others who are perhaps short on time in the day."

Members on the site can help ship almost anything, and help with a variety of errands including:

Grocery delivery
Pet walking
Household handyman/woman chores
Help with furniture assembly
Help with party preparations

Citizenshipper can help people across two countries (US and Canada) with a wide variety of shipping and errand services.
