I recently learned that Quantum Storage Systems makes plastic parts cabinets, similar to Akro-Mils’. I added the cabinet to my shopping cart to save for later, since I’m curious to see how it might compare to my much-loved Akro-Mils cabinets.
After I added the parts organizer to my Amazon shopping cart, there was a pop-up window advertising “professional assembly” services, and I had to laugh.
For just $112.30, you can hire professional assembly of this $16.25 plastic drawer parts cabinet, which has a shipping weight of ~3 lbs.
Note that moving the cabinet to a new spot is not included. With a typical assembly time of 3 hours, an expert will remove packaging materials and assemble the [pre-assembled] cabinet for you.
Also note that this is for assembly services, and not installation, and so mounting the cabinet to a wall is most likely not included in the services.
I’m guessing that Amazon’s algorithm saw the “cabinet” part in the product name and automatically attached professional assembly services to it as an upsell.
This isn’t a big deal, I just found it to be amusing.

Amazon’s Home Services have been around for more than 3 years now. I still haven’t heard from any service providers, techs, or pros that have sold their services on Amazon, and am curious to hear what experiences have been like.
