Today, Amazon introduced Home Services, a new place for you to go if you have jobs that need done around your house. Just like how you browse products on Amazon, you can browse the jobs and even odd-jobs you may need to tackle on your property, with Amazon guaranteeing your satisfaction or your money back.
A few of the jobs you can hire for thanks to Home Services are TV mounting, professional movers to help pack your boxes, gutter cleaners, plumbers, car tire installation, grill assembly, pressure washing, goat grazing (seriously), musical instrument lessons, and so much more. Each job is handled by a vetted professional who has a “proven track record,” all of the necessary licenses, and insurance on file with Amazon. And yes, Amazon states they perform a 6-point background check on each professional they send to your home.
Now, not all of these great services will be available in your area. For now, certain services, such as the goat grazing and car audio installation are limited as to where you can order them. Each service page allows you to make sure if your zip code is supported, so be sure to check before you go hiring your goats. Amazon states they are currently working to roll out these services to more zip codes.
Below, check out the features of Home Services, then watch Amazon’s video below.
- Handpicked Pros: Amazon curates an invite-only marketplace for professional service providers. Invited pros are background checked, required to maintain insurance, and expected to maintain a high performance standard.
- Happiness Guarantee: Amazon doesn’t just refer customers to providers, but stays with them every step of the way. All services purchased are guaranteed. If customers are not satisfied at the end of the service, Amazon will work with customers and the pro to ensure the job gets done right or provide a refund.
- Upfront Pricing: Service pros compete for a customer’s business based on price, quality and availability. If customers find a lower price for the same service and pro, we will match it. Customers can add pre-packaged services right to their cart with just a few clicks on Amazon and are only charged when the service is completed.
- Verified Reviews: All Amazon Home Services reviews are from verified purchases, so customers know they are hearing from real customers. No special sign up or subscription is required to read reviews and ratings.
