Get Spiffy Inc. — an on-demand car care, technology and services company — has launched a green tire services initiative for people in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, as well as fleets across Spiffy’s 20 markets.
The new Spiffy Tires service offers mobile and fixed-site tire installation, featuring a variety of brands, such as Michelin, Continental and BFGoodrich. Tire installations are completed by full-time technicians. Spiffy then sends the used tires to PRTI processing plants, which can “de-manufacture” and break the tires down into carbon char, steel and oil.
Franklinton, NC-based PRTI was founded in 2013 and has processed more than 50 million pounds of waste rubber material.
“Spiffy started by improving the car wash and detailing customer experience before branching out into maintenance services with the introduction of oil changes in 2017,” said Spiffy CEO Scot Wingo. “After talking to both individual and fleet customers, the top request was for mobile tire services, including purchasing and installation. Today, we’re servicing over 1,000 vehicles per day. And, by our estimates, 5% to 10% of those vehicles have tires with low treads. That’s a significant safety issue that we can help solve.
“Beyond offering Spiffy Tires to fleets, we’re excited by the opportunity to provide additional car care services to our customers in office parks and residences. We look forward to introducing individual tire sales and installation, starting with a pilot program in Raleigh-Durham.”
