Could this new service change how you book tradesmen in the future?

Internet giant Amazon is trialling a brand new service in the US that could completely transform how people search for and find tradesmen in the future. Amazon Home Services will create an online marketplace where customers can browse for companies and qualified individuals that can take care of all kinds of household tasks including electrical work, plumbing and decorating. A wide range of specialist niches will be covered too such as device repair and even grazing for goats.

The idea behind the service is that it will allow people to purchase goods and arrange installation on the same website. Alongside this, Amazon aims to protect customers by helping them to ensure they work with reliable, professional tradesmen. Every tradesman is handpicked to protect standards. The selection process includes checking their background, licenses and ensuring they have the right insurance cover.

An added bonus for customers using Amazon Home Services is that they are protected against over-inflated prices. All billing goes through them and payment for the job is only issued when the job is successfully completed. This provides an additional layer of protection in that if you have any complaints you could go direct to Amazon rather than arguing with the tradesman.

The new service is currently available in a number of major American cities including Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. If it is successful expansion could come very quickly across the US and overseas too.

In the UK, finding a reliable tradesman can require a lot of legwork. You can browse online to get an idea of companies in your local area but you’ll still need to get in touch with them directly, usually by telephone. This can be time consuming, especially if you’re shopping for a price. You may also run the risk of choosing the wrong provider. Having the number of a reliable specialist is the best option if you want to save time and ensure you get the right level of service.
