(CNN) – Amazon is expanding its home deliveries straight into your garage.
The online retailer said people can choose to allow delivery people to leave their grocery orders and deliveries inside of their garages.
The free service is available just to Prime members in more than 5,000 cities.
For this to work, you must have a Wi-Fi-enabled or smart garage door opener.
You would make your Amazon order and select “In-Garage Delivery” at checkout.
The driver then uses a handheld Amazon scanner to open your garage door on delivery day.
Amazon said the driver will only be able to access the garage door one time.
Customers are notified about the delivery in real time.

How often should my a garage door be serviced?
Your garage door is a large piece of moving equipment made up of many parts. Some families use their garage door more than their front door. We recommend having your garage door and operator serviced every year in order to ensure a properly working door and operator. The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.
