Amazon has expanded its offering with the launch of Home Services in the UK. Now you can find professional tradespeople – from electricians and plumbers to cleaners and handymen – via a quick and easy Amazon search.
Amazon Home Services features a curated list of handpicked tradespeople and service providers. They offer upfront pricing, as well as ratings and reviews from verified customers. Amazon’s usual ‘Happiness Guarantee’ still applies, ensuring you’ll always get a quality result, or you money back.
This is currently available for customers in Greater London, Birmingham and Manchester, and more and more cities will be added over time.
'Following our successful launch in the USA, customers have told us they love the convenience and peace of mind that comes with trusted, professional installation of their products,’ says Scott Webster, General Manager at Amazon.
To mark the launch of Amazon's exciting expansion, research into Britons' attitudes towards DIY and professional tradespeople was commissioned, showing, most notably, that over half of us would rather hire professional help with household tasks, and 77 per cent think that knowing who to trust is the hardest thing about choosing a service professional.
