AKRON — The mobile car repair network YourMechanic Inc. is adding a tire installation component to its business model through a collaboration with Goodyear and its goodyear.com-affiliated installers .
Goodyear and its dealers will be providing tire sales and installation via goodyear.com to customers of YourMechanic, an interactive platform that delivers mobile repair, maintenance, inspection and reconditioning services directly to consumer, mobility and fleet clients.
YourMechanic said its partnership with Goodyear is "directly in line" with its model of mobile repair by enabling its affiliated mechanics to inspect, diagnose and order tires for vehicles directly at their point of need.
By integrating with Goodyear/Goodyear.com, YourMechanic affiliates can order tires directly from consumers' homes or fleet lots and provide an expedient tire inspection, recommendation and buying option.
"Drivers want efficiency and convenience as well as optimal vehicle performance, and YourMechanic delivers on those consumer demands with its technology-enabled service model," Mike Dauberman, Goodyear's chief digital officer, North America Consumer, said.
YourMechanic CEO Anthony Rodio said the goal is "to provide a comprehensive solution for all auto care, for both shared and personal mobility. We believe this is an important step toward realizing that vision."
Paul Scola, YourMechanic chief revenue officer, added: "Our partnership with Goodyear is directly in line with our model and vision for mobile repair. Our mobile mechanics diagnose, repair and inspect vehicles, they capture inspection data on the status of the vehicle, and through the YourMechanic platform can procure tires at the point of need with installation happening in the most efficient and convenient way possible."
