Sears Auto Center And Amazon.com Expand Tire Purchase And Installation Program

Initially launched at 47 Sears Auto Centers in eight metropolitan areas, the Ship-to-Store tire solution, which is integrated into the Amazon.com checkout process, is now available nationwide, including Alaska and Hawaii.

After teaming up with Amazon.com in May, Sears Auto Center is expanding its program that provides full-service tire installation and balancing for customers who purchase any brand of tires – including DieHard – on Amazon.com. Initially launched at 47 Sears Auto Centers in eight metropolitan areas, the Ship-to-Store tire solution, which is integrated into the Amazon.com checkout process, is now available nationwide, including Alaska and Hawaii.

“The response from Amazon customers around this program has been extremely positive. Our competitive bundled price for tire installation, which includes the installation of the tire, wheel balancing, valve stem or tire pressure monitor rebuild kit and the tire disposal fee is resonating with these customers. We’re thrilled to extend this valuable service across even more areas and into hundreds of additional stores,” said Mike McCarthy, vice president and general manager of Sears Automotive. “Providing excellent auto service, such as fast installation and free performance snapshot evaluations, is at the core of our business and partnerships. By working with Amazon, we’re proud to further meet and surpass that commitment, thanks to the ease and convenience of their program.”

As one of the first nationwide auto service centers to offer Amazon.com customers the Ship-to-Store tire solution, Sears Auto Center also conducts free multi-point “performance snapshots” to ensure 100-percent customer satisfaction. Amazon.com customers simply select their tires, the Sears Auto location and their preferred date and time for the tire installation. Sears Auto Center then contacts them to confirm their appointment.
