Amazon to start ‘Local Services’ to help you install that ceiling fan
Nov 25, 2014, 6:48am PST
Amazon.com will soon roll out "Amazon Local Services" in seven U.S. cities, including Seattle.
If you buy a ceiling fan or other product onAmazon.com that needs to be installed, Amazon will soon be able to refer you to a local installer as well.
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) will soon roll out "Amazon Local Services" in seven U.S. cities, including Seattle. (The site currently says it’s "coming to your neighborhood soon.")
"Amazon Local Services" will find installation professionals in home and repair services, automotive services, lawn and garden (find someone to install your Christmas lights), and computer and electronics.
The Wall Street Journal reports Amazon will try to differentiate itself from similar services offered by Angie’s List by offering a money-back guarantee on its installers, and will conduct background checks on its businesses to see if they have liability insurance.
