PHILADELPHIA, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SimpleTire ships tires to customers' installers of their choice, places of work, and homes. And now customers can have tires shipped to, and picked up, at any of the nationwide FedEx Offices!
FedEx selected SimpleTire as a partner for this new program as a way to continue extending their pivotal role in the retail revolution with an ecommerce innovator.
This new option provides customers a useful way to receive their tires. Instead of tires being shipped to a home where waiting for a delivery is a hassle, or storage can be an issue, or leaving them on a doorstep might be a security concern, this provides a safe and convenient option.
Many of the 1,799+ nationwide locations FedEx locations are open extended hours and on Sundays. They will hold tires for up to five days until the customer is ready to come by to pick them up. This time window provides customers an added level of flexibility for scheduling their tire installation with a local automotive shop.
As well as being a new practical option, it's also free for customers.
Josh Chalofsky, SimpleTire's COO, says, "FedEx has been a great partner of ours for a longtime. They continue to impress us with their capabilities and willingness to work to provide our customers a great experience. This 'delivery and hold' option is another important innovation that benefits our customers."
When ordering on SimpleTire.com, customers just need to choose the FedEx Office location that is nearest for them. When the order is delivered to that office, they are notified upon its arrival and then can pickup at a time this is best for them.
SimpleTire is an online tire retailer that aggregates inventory from independent tire suppliers and ships to any location a customer chooses.
FedEx Express invented express distribution and is the industry's global leader, providing rapid, reliable, time-definite delivery to more than 220 countries and territories.
