Seattle — The sky’s the limit for Amazon’s Home Services program.
First announced in the spring, Amazon Home Services lets consumers solicit providers for around-the-house jobs, such as TV mounting and IT support. Rather than be limited to fixed jobs, consumers are now also able to create personalized service requests and obtain free price quotes by posting text and photos of a custom task they require.
The service has also been drastically expanded since its launch and is now available in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle and Washington.
According to Amazon, there are more than 900 service categories available. It declined to provide the number of providers currently participating in the program, but it did note they carry an average 4.71- out of five-star rating.
