eBay can now be used to book for home installation and assembly services
eBay has now partnered with three companies to help you install your household appliances like television, fridge, air conditioner, furniture, bikes and other things that need to be put together right after the delivery. Once you purchase a product, you will be able to add the service and complete the transaction. The applicable company will get in touch to set up an appointment.
Handy, InstallerNet and Porch are the three companies which provide installation services at the various product pages and list an option for customers to select assembly and installation services.
However, amongst these three companies, Handy is the leading platform for connecting individuals looking for household services with top-quality, pre-screened independent service professionals. From TV mounting to light fixture replacement, to furniture assembly, Handy instantly matches thousands of customers every week with top-rated professionals around the US.
eBay Vice President of Merchandising Alyssa Steele says that the company sells a lot of things that require assembly, and the partnerships will allow customers to tap into a larger network of professionals.
The partnerships allow eBay to help catch up to Amazon, which launched Home Services back in 2015, a gateway that allows customers to hire people for a variety of services, including assembly and installation.
However, eBay’s placement of the option to purchase services right on the page rationalizes the entire process, making it easy for people to not only click buy but also arrange someone to help assemble it so you can begin to use that television or bike.
