Amazon.com Inc. rolled out its on-demand professional services platform Home Services in the U.K. on June 12.
The platform, which launched in March 2015, allows customers to schedule professional services for tasks such as assembling furniture, house cleaning and plumbing.
Amazon said customers can hire skilled professionals or tradespeople to assemble or fix products even if they were bought elsewhere.
The service comes with a pre-defined scope of work and upfront pricing, and customers can add pre-packaged services through Amazon.co.uk, the e-commerce giant said.
Home Services will initially be available to customers across Greater London, Birmingham and Manchester. Amazon said more cities and services will be added over time.
