Simple Tire LLC has expanded its free shipping service to every tire it sells. And it doesn't matter where the tires are delivered — at home, at work, or to a local installer.
The Pennsylvania-based online seller says the offer is effective immediately and applies to all categories of tires, ranging from passenger, light truck, commercial, agriculture, off-the-road and industrial, and even all-terrain, antique and other various specialties. There is no minimum order requirement. Customers can ship tires anywhere in 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,” says SimpleTire CEO Andy Chalofsky.
Here's how Simple Tire's business model works. More than 2,000 local distributors and installers across the country are streamlined into one data network. This network of suppliers feeds SimpleTire with real-time data on available inventory, which is consistently updated on www.SimpleTire.com.
Simple Tire says with those 2,000 shipping points in the U.S., it's able to access live inventory data on a large scale, and also increase the speed of delivery. Its network of distributors and installers then can benefit by growing e-commerce sales.
“We know from research and ongoing customer feedback that free shipping is a top priority of consumers," says Chalofsky. "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."
Simple Tire initially offered free shipping on select tire brands in August 2016.
