The new Amazon Home Services wants to help you find help around the house through an invite-only online marketplace of handyman professionals.

Amazon wants to start playing a part in helping you get things done around your home, whether it be  repairs or assembling.

Amazon Home Services recently with over 2 million unique service offerings ranging across 700 professional service types, the e-commerce giant said. The new services offering is made up of selected, invite-only professionals who provide a range of handyman services, including plumbing, TV wall mounting and grill assembly, along with more personal initiatives like music lessons.

For Amazon, the time seemed right for a service offering. The company says that 85 million of its US customers are shopping for products that need professional services.

The new undertaking puts Amazon in competition with business referral and rating services such as Angie's List and Yelp.

Amazon Home Services is launching across the US, but the availability of services is heftiest in major metro areas including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. All of the service providers are required to maintain insurance, and if the job is not done right, Amazon said that it will work with customers and the service providers to address the problem. All pricing will be known upfront, and Home Services will include verified reviews, so users can hear from other customers on their experience with a chosen provider.

The new Amazon offering is available now. Service offerings will vary depending on your city.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Looking for a Plumber Sunshine Coast >

  • "Doc" is always on time and does a great job keeping my restaurant going! Reliable and reasonably priced.
  • Highly recommended! Doc is a total professional who delivered great service.
  • I had one of those stupid out of hours accidents where you're doing a simple gardening job, and you swing the maddock through a water pipe that isn't meant to be there. Water everywhere, late Saturday afternoon, what are you going to do? I googled for a local plumber, and Doc was the first one I found who answered the phone. He was around in less than 1 hour, and fixed it in about 15 mins. Charged a fair price, delivered great service. I would recommend him to anyone.
  • I have used Connected PlumbGas for over Ten Years on the Sunshine Coast for all my private plumbing problems and gas installations such as new stoves and cooktops . I am extreemly happy with the professionalism and quality of work provided to me on each occasion .
