(Did you know that Santa Claus and MERCURY ERRANDS are related?* 🙂 )

‘Twas two days before Christmas, when a man spending his holidays in Big Sky, Montana realized that he required a courier service to deliver a package to himself before Christmas day. He hired MERCURY ERRANDS in the hopes that his package soon would be there.

In as much as FedEX does not do any shipping or receiving in Big Sky, MERCURY ERRANDS was jolly on the spot. Our task: to receive a package from FedEX intended for our client and to deliver it to him the same day.

The very next morning, FedEX delivered the man’s package to MERCURY ERRANDS. We sprang to our 4-wheel drive vehicle to traverse the snow-covered mountain roads, and we were off like a flash to make the delivery. Like the down of a thistle, our client’s package was delivered from Bozeman to Big Sky by 1:00pm…just in time for Christmas.

After paying for our service, the man exclaimed – ‘ere we drove out of sight, MERCURY ERRANDS! You SAVED my Christmas!”

Saving Christmases is just one thing we do well! At MERCURY ERRANDS, we get things done for you! Call us at 406-600-9925.
