MIAMI — Online tire retailer Tirescanner.com Inc., seeking to reach "time-poor" motorists, is organizing a network of independent mobile tire-installers to complement its online business model.
The new service, which is launching with more than 100 installation vehicles in 35 states, is designed to allow customers to receive next-day, at-home installation of any brand/size tire, Tirescanner said.
This type of service caters to "time-poor" motorists and businesses that cannot afford downtime and need to keep their vehicle fleets on the road, according to Tirescanner CEO and Founder Mike Welch, who called this the industry's first "nationwide delivery and installation service."
The network should have service available in all 50 states by 2021.
The new service complements Tirescanner's existing business model of online ordering and installation at an affiliated brick-and-mortar store.
