I am lucky in that my husband is pretty handy. I’m certainly not afraid to roll my sleeves up and get dirty fixing or painting, either – the problem is finding the time to do all the things I want done.
Gone are the days of opening up a phone book and finding pages of ads and phone numbers to call right at your fingertips. Sure, you can always do an internet search, but the top names that appear will most likely be paid ads. Once you find some providers, you’ll have to do more searches to find reviews. It’s a long, tiresome process!
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is now a simple way to schedule professional home services directly on Amazon.com. That’s right, you can now hire a home pro with just a few clicks of your phone. How cool is that?!

All you need to do is add a pre-defined, pre-packaged service to your Amazon cart. All the prices are upfront, so there are no secret hidden fees. You can even choose to have countless products that are being sold on Amazon installed and assembled for you. For example, when you purchase a set of blinds for your windows, you’ll see an option to schedule installation. Just pick the option during the checkout process.
When you checkout, you will select 3 preferred dates and times. The service professional will confirm the date and time via email or phone. It’s that easy!
Amazon Home Services is currently available in many U.S. cities. New cities and services are added each day. You’ll enter your zip code to see if a particular service is offered in your local area.
The best part? All service professionals are handpicked by Amazon. They are required to have a background check, and be insured and licensed. Any professionals entering your home will have passed a criminal background check, as well.
Amazon regularly runs sales on services, so you’ll want to check it often.
All payments for services go directly through Amazon, so a service professional will never ask you for a direct payment. This ensures you aren’t hit with any surprise charges and fees.
I love this quick, convenient and reliable new service and intend on using it often as more home services become available in my area. Have you tried it already? Leave a comment and let me know about your experience!
