PHILADELPHIA — Online retailer SimpleTire L.L.C. is expanding its offer of free shipping on tires from its catalog with no minimum required and applies to orders delivered to a home, business or local installer.
The online tire retailer, which began offering free shipping last year on popular brands of tires, said the expanded offer applies across all categories, including passenger, light truck, commercial, agriculture, OTR, and ATV. The company will ship tires anywhere within the contiguous U.S.
"Online shoppers don't expect to get free shipping on tires due to their large size and weight. With our business model, we're able to ship to any location in the U.S., at no cost to the customer," SimpleTire CEO Andy Chalofsky said.
SimpleTire links with a network of more than 2,000 independent tire distributors and installers across the country. This network of suppliers feeds SimpleTire with real-time data on available inventory, which is updated constantly on SimpleTire.com, the company said.
"We know from research and ongoing customer feedback that free shipping is a top priority of consumers," Mr. Chalofsky said.
"Last year, we saw an immediate increase in sales when we first offered free shipping on popular tires. This year, we have worked diligently to include free shipping within all of our categories."
