Still another bid Totally dominant All things considered, e-commerce, Amazon has reportedly begun testing a premium service that customers can choose to consolidate their deliveries after delivery. The service is planned to hit buyers first in Virginia and “two markets”, according to an internal Amazon presentation. Bloomberg Friday.
This is a minor upgrade, but anyone who has ordered company furniture or large ticket items will tell you it’s a significant one. Furniture assembly is time consuming, tedious and sometimes Even dangerous, Which is why sometimes it’s worth splurges for someone to put your heavy bedframe or bookcase together. Amazon’s long-proposed buyers the option to leave deliveries directly inside their homes, the lack of any assembly service means some of these buyers will inevitably turn to competitors that offer one, like Wayfair or Home Depot.
According to Bloomberg, Amazon’s new service requires drivers to not only unpack and assemble a person’s purchases but to take the item back to Amazon if that person isn’t satisfied with the end result. These same drivers aren’t merely going to be expected to assemble relatively simple furniture staples, but they might be trained on installing weighty appliances like washing machines and dishwashers.
In a lot of ways, this planned proposal sounds like a souped-up version of Amazon Home Services, which the company rolled out to certain cities and states back 2015. While customers in home services need to hire Amazon-tested contractors to do this kind of dirty work, the new service comes courtesy of Amazon drivers – a move designed to “make it more convenient, cheaper and easier to deliver to Amazon,” the plan said. One person told Bloomberg that it was almost certainly going to give these drivers a new set Insecure and harsh In that situation they need to work.
We reached out to Amazon about the plan and when we will update this post We hear back.
