PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Aug 1, 2016 SimpleTire changes the tire buying industry forever.
The last barrier to buying tires on the Internet has come down! The cost of shipping is no longer an issue. SimpleTire now ships popular brand tires to an installer or home, WITHOUT a delivery charge.
More than 5,000 SKUs from the most popular tires brands qualify for FREE SHIPPING. They include BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, Continental, Cooper, Falken, Firestone, Fuzion, General, Goodyear, Hankook, Kelly Tires, Kumho, Michelin, Nitto, Pirelli, Toyo, and Yokohama.
Customers get the best prices and free shipping on popular brands because of a unique low-cost, high-volume business model. Instead of buying and reselling tires like other retailers, SimpleTire uses data and technology to aggregate tire inventory, for every type of vehicle, from more than 500 suppliers across the country.
As COO Josh Chalofsky says, "We're often referred to as the 'Expedia of the tire industry' because of the way we source tires and the effort we've put into building relationships with suppliers."
The suppliers, that SimpleTire has partnered with, compete with each other on price and selection so that SimpleTire customers get the best deals.
Mr. Chalofsky adds, "Our mission is to provide people with the best prices on new tires and take the hassle out of the buying & installation process. Now with free shipping, we have made enormous progress in achieving that."
With other tire retailers having a limited tire selection and the expense of maintaining inventory, they are at a significant disadvantage when compared to SimpleTire's business model.
In the $38 billion market, currently 5% of tires are purchased online. That share is now poised to grow quickly thanks to the ease of price comparison shopping and convenient delivery.
SimpleTire gets people new tires for every vehicle at the best price, and with free shipping.
