Get My Batsuit, Alfred!

As You Wish

Below, just a few of the things personal concierges have done in the name of customer service:

Planning something for a family to do during its "bonding time" (They couldn't come up with anything on their own?)

  • Finding a plumber to fix a leaky washer on a weekend
  • Getting tickets to a sold-out Elton John benefit concert
  • Finding a new location for a full-scale wedding in two days after a hurricane put a damper on an outdoor tent idea
  • Finding a way to transfer 10 tons of salt to Brazil
  • Planning a trekking trip to Nepal
  • Arranging a wedding ceremony in the Bahamas
  • Searching out the best hot sauce in Texas
  • Buying nutritious pet food for a tarantula
