Amazon Sells Home Improvement Services

Amazon doesn’t just sell products anymore.

The online marketplace has branched out and now sells services, including electrical and plumbing work, home repairs and gutter cleaning.

“Amazon Home Services features handpicked pros offering upfront pricing on pre-packaged services with helpful reviews from customers that have made verified purchases,” the company states.

Shoppers can browse services, and Amazon offers work packages from professionals who “are background checked, required to maintain insurance, and expected to maintain a high-performance standard,” according to the company website.

The providers are sorted by categories, which are home improvement, lawn and garden, automotive, computer and electronics, lessons and other services. Amazon selects the professionals whose services are sold in the marketplace, and guarantees the quality of the work.

Consumers can find whether specific services are offered where they’re located by entering a ZIP code in a website search box. Then they can look for the available services, add their choices to online shopping carts and pay after the work is completed, according to the amazon.com/services site.
