As you may have heard, Amazon Home Services was launched this year. If you haven’t heard, it’s a new category on Amazon.com that offers services such as housecleaning, home repair, home installation, etc. It’s pretty much got you covered when you need some help around the house. I was intrigued to say the least.
Bill has been talking about getting a garage door opener installed for a while. Neither of us has ever had one and we don’t even park the car in there. It’s filled with bikes, balls, toys, lawn chairs, and who knows what else. However, the kids and their friends are getting older and love going into the garage on their own now. We just felt having the opener would make it a lot safer for everyone. So we brought up Amazon Home Services to see if it would be useful. I say it couldn’t have been easier. We were on the hunt for an electrician and a garage door opener installer! Let’s do this, baby!
First and foremost, you can put your faith in the services you will receive as all of the pros are handpicked. Amazon only invites the best to come on board, with a very stringent background check. Aside from knowing the people on the site are legit, we loved the fact that there were explanations about the company as well as ratings and reviews from customers (all verified by Amazon to be coming from users that have made purchases). Just the way you love reading product reviews on Amazon, you can take advantage of service reviews, too!! This was such a big plus for us. It really removed a lot of the concern that normally involved with finding a new service provider.
The next step in the process we really liked, too. At this point we were actually searching for the service and trying to find the right pro. Normally, you would be forced to look up a bunch of people or ask all your family and friends, then give each a call to get a price, availability, and everything else. Sometimes you can’t find any recommendations. It can be a pain, very time consuming, and equally frustrating. Not with Amazon. You don’t have to “know a guy.” You simply select a service you wish to hire for, and the offers come rolling in, upfront pricing included. You can pick from the list of offers while all the information is right in front of you. It was amazing.
Once you decide on who you would like to hire, in this case an electrician for the ceiling outlet as well as a garage door opener specialist, you can then see and book the 3 hour time window right there (though this is only available in select cities). It’s so easy, no haggling for a time with the receptionist, no phone tag. Done.
Both jobs were done at the precise time of booking and within the time allotted. No confusion and no problems. They were also very friendly local business owners (which I love to support). Once the job was completed successfully, I just simply signed on their phones and the job was done…payment was made. No running to find your wallet or having to hit the ATM the night before to get cash. No surprise price increases at the end of the job. The price was the price. On top of that, the prices were great, just what we were hoping to pay. Win-win yet again.
Amazon even offers a happiness guarantee, which means if you are not satisfied with your service, they will make it right or give you a full refund. Seriously now, how could you possibly turn that down? It’s a no-brainer, right? You can’t really lose. Only win. I like those odds, don’t you?
On top of all of this, we even had the perfect opener delivered right to our door on just two days since we are Amazon Prime members. Great price, too.
