Service
Sims can use a telephone to call several different services, which will send NPCs to perform specific tasks. In The Sims, they arrive on foot, while in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, they have vehicles. In The Sims 2, most service Sims will charge a per-visit fee in addition to their hourly rates. In The Sims 3, some service Sims charge by the day, instead of by the hour.

Routine ServicesEdit
