Need some help around the house? Amazon to the rescue. The online retail giant is expanding its offline reach by way of Amazon Home Services in the United States, where users can shop for a home cleaning much in the way they might shop for a vacuum cleaner. It’s proven quite popular since its initial U.S. launch back in March of 2015 (the number of service providers has increased more than 1,500 percent, and now includes over 1,200 unique services), and this week, the Seattle-based company announced the expansion of Home Services into 20 new cities, including Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Boulder, Cleveland, and more.
“We’re thrilled to be offering more Amazon customers access to our network of trusted pros throughout the U.S.,” said Nish Lathia, general manager of Amazon Home Services. “Today, customers can search over 1,200 unique services from pros in over 60 professions — from house cleaning, to lawn work and beyond. The availability of Home Services in more cities means that more customers can quickly find and schedule the help they need around the house heading into the holiday season.”
One of the benefits associated with Home Services comes in the form of peace of mind — because Amazon hand-picks its service providers and eliminates the haggling process altogether by way of its upfront pricing model, getting your lawn mowed, your home wired, or your plumbing fixed is about as straightforward as possible. Moreover, Home Services comes with Amazon’s Happiness Guarantee, as well as the company’s customer service and verified purchase reviews (the average rating on Home Services currently stands at a 4.7 out of 5 possible stars), which means you’re covered just about every step of the way.
