BROOMALL, Pa., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TireVan, the largest and fastest-growing mobile tire installation business in the United States, announces the official launch of its service in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The company opened a facility in Broomall, Pa., as the hub for its fleet of mobile service vans and will provide tire service throughout the entire five-county Philadelphia region, as well as the South Jersey and Greater Wilmington, Del. areas.

"We evaluated several locations to begin our national expansion and determined that Philadelphia was the perfect market due to its high population of commuters and its close proximity to our headquarters," said Phil Pifer, President and CEO of TireVan. "After seven years of successful growth in the D.C. region, we look forward to establishing mobile installation as a viable alternative in one of the most competitive tire markets in the country."

Headquartered in Sterling, Va., TireVan offers a full selection of name-brand tires at competitive prices and professionally installs the selected tires at customers' locations such as their home or work. The company is pioneering this unique business model of mobile tire installation within the $30 billion tire industry. By offering a simple yet novel method of purchasing and installing new tires, TireVan is changing a retail experience that many consumers find inconvenient, expensive and unsatisfactory.  

"Changing tires can be time consuming and, frankly, a hassle, so the concept of mobile tire installation appeals to all car owners, whether they drive a Mazda or a Maserati," said Pifer. "We've perfected the model, and TireVan aims to make the process of getting new tires a pleasant, convenient experience for customers nationwide."  

TireVan's technicians are highly trained to utilize state-of-the-art equipment to provide a superior installation, even in the most complex and demanding circumstances, such as servicing expensive rims and low-profile high-performance tires. In addition, the company's service is backed by its low price guarantee, providing customers with a superior experience that actually costs less. "We consistently achieve high customer satisfaction ratings," said Pifer.  "We don't know of any other auto shop or tire retailer that can make that same claim."

This launch in the Philadelphia area marks the beginning of a strategic national expansion for TireVan, designed to grow the company's footprint into new major metropolitan areas across the United States over the next five years. Following Philadelphia, the company plans to open service in a third major market in the next six months.
