Property site Magicbricks has forayed into the property services business as it moves towards consolidating a whole bouquet of smart solutions for homeowners and tenants. The company has entered into a partnership with Urban Company (formerly UrbanClap), India and the UAE’s largest tech-enabled home services company, to offer its users home services for sanitisation and pest control services. The partnership aims to leverage Urban Company’s expertise in delivering professional services and Magicbricks’ scale and national presence.
Amid the pandemic when hygiene has taken centre-stage in the lives of people, the partnership will enable Magicbricks users to directly book Urban Company’s home sanitisation and pest control services through magicbricks.com/property-services. The packages start from as low as Rs 799. The partnership also coincides with the onset of the festive season, with Navratri, Durga Puja and Diwali around the corner. It will enable a large number of Magicbricks users to experience Urban Company’s professional services.
“We are extremely delighted to launch Property Services, which is our endeavour to work with consumers from the discovery stage all the way to their transaction. As our first service, we are excited to partner with Urban Company to offer our users home services. The apt marriage of Magicbricks’ retail reach and Urban Company’s wide range of services is a win-win proposition for both the brands. At a time when hygiene and sanitisation have become increasingly significant in our lives, we are delighted to partner with Urban Company and bring to our customers important home services all under one roof. We will be gradually adding more categories to our property services to make it more compelling for our users,” the company’s CEO Sudhir Pai has said.
Varun Khaitan, co-founder, Urban Company, said: “We are excited to partner with Magicbricks in providing quality home services to more consumers. Our focus is to provide standardised and affordable high-quality home services. This partnership will enable us to reach out to more consumers and offer professional sanitisation and pest control services. We are confident this partnership will help us scale higher especially with the onset of the festive season.”
Home sanitisation packages are available in the range of Rs 799 to Rs 3099 depending on the size of the house. The pest control services, on the other hand, are available for cockroaches and ants, bedbugs, termites and mosquitoes. The cost of the services ranges from as low as Rs 799 for a mosquito to Rs 8699 for comprehensive protection against termites. The services for sanitisation and pest control are now available in key markets such as Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad and over a period of time would be expanded to other markets as well.
