"In your post you state that 1 delivery of anything will cost at least $30 (1 hr minimum + admin fee"
I dont know where you get $30,my math tells me 1 hour at $10/hr+$10 is only $20 not $30
Anyhow, after searching the net for about 1/2 hr,I found quite a few errand service companies. However very few of them had their prices listed. A few times I tried clicking on links to their supposed websites,but nothing came up. I tried calling a few of them ,but nobody ever answered the phone. Anyhow here are a couple of companies that did list their prices.

if you go to the site below you will see they charge $30 hr
"They can wait 2 days to have something delivered for $10" you say
often they cant wait 2 days,or just figure why should they if for $10 more they can get it within a couple hours,maybe an hr.
"They friends/family/associates that can get them places for far less then $30"
Obviously this isnt always the case or there would be no need for errand services at all.
"people rich enough to afford these types of services already have assistants/helpers"
My service is affordable enough for "non rich" people,I believe,and there are certainly many many of us out there
"Lots of grocery stores already have services like this so that takes out a huge portion of your business/products"
I would argue that there are many non grocery items that people still need . Also I would think these grocery stores probably have minuimum orders,only delver a specific distance,and only during store hours as well.
