Trademark Class For Services

If the activity of the business involves multiple goods or services falling under multiple trademark classifications then trademark application can be filed in more than one class.

NOTE: Even if a registered trademark exists under one class, you can still file a trademark application for the same mark under a different class. So, getting trademark under one class does not give you complete exclusivity over use of the trademark.
