In our climate controlled location we will store you customers’ tires, wheels and tire / wheel assemblies until they need them the following season.
Your customers do not want to have dirty tires taking up space, nor do they want to transport them to and from the garage for service. By offering your customers tire storage they won’t have to.
Retailers and auto dealerships do not want to have the hassle or liability of having customers tires stored on site. You can save the space and generate revenue by selling tire storage as a service to your customers.
We don’t push the Tire Storage Direct name on your customers but rather support and strengthen your brand. As far as your customers are concerned, it is your company providing the tire storage services. We free up space in your facility by storing the tires on your behalf. Whenever you need a pickup or return, we send a dedicated account representative to assist, and you can gain full insight into your customers’ tires at any time through our web application.
Tire Locker offers wholesale rates on select tire and wheel related services. Tire Locker offers wheel repair, repaint and refinishing services for scratched or damaged wheels. This allows the dealer to offer additional services for the customer while the wheels are in storage. Wheel cleaning and tire shine are also available prior to delivery. For the dealer, Tire Locker can balance any tire and wheel assembly in storage ahead of delivery, making a changeover take mere minutes.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Before placing an order or renewal with TireLocker, Inc. (TireLocker), please make sure you (Customer) understand your rights and obligations under these terms and conditions, which apply to original and renewal periods. TireLocker is engaged in the storage and delivery of seasonal tires for customers (Services). All customer orders for Services must be accepted by TireLocker and are not valid until accepted by TireLocker and Customer has made all required payments. TireLocker reserves the right to reject any Customer order. For purposes of TireLocker Services: “tires” means tires as well as rims and any attached tires, and associated lug nuts, supplied to TireLocker; “service year” means the 365-day period commencing when Customer signs up for the Services and Customer has made all required payments to commence the Services; and “dealer” means the car dealership or other place of business where Customer has Customer’s seasonal tires changed. These terms and conditions, as amended by TireLocker from time to time, will apply to future transactions for the Services without any further detailed agreement being necessary. TireLocker reserves the right to change its pricing and the terms and conditions at any time for future business transactions. For good and valuable consideration, and intending to be legally bound, Customer agrees to the following:
Upon commencement of the Services, TireLocker shall pick up Customer’s seasonal tires not currently in use from Customer’s home or the dealer or other business where the tires are located. The location of the initial pickup must be within 10 miles of customer's home address. TireLocker will store Customer’s seasonal tires until Customer informs TireLocker that Customer desires to have Customer’s seasonal tires delivered to Customer’s dealer. TireLocker will take the seasonal tires that have been removed from Customer’s vehicle to a TireLocker storage facility. Customer’s dealer must be within 10 miles of Customer’s home address on TireLocker's records. If Customer’s dealer is not within 10 miles of Customer’s home address on TireLocker’s records, Customer agrees that Customer may be charged a fee determined by TireLocker for any location beyond the first 10 miles from Customer’s home. In no event will TireLocker be obligated to deliver any tires beyond 10 miles from Customer’s home address of record. For the yearly fee, Customer is entitled to have Customer’s seasonal tires picked up and delivered to a dealer two times during a 365-day period. For example, if Customer changes seasonal tires in November and April of each year, TireLocker will deliver Customer’s winter tires to Customer’s dealer in November and pick up and store Customer’s summer tires at that time, and deliver Customer’s summer tires to Customer’s dealer in April and pick up and store Customer’s winter tires at that time. TireLocker’s obligations are conditioned on Customer’s dealer agreeing to accept from TireLocker and hold Customer’s tires for a period of at least three full business days prior to the time for tire changing and at least three full business days prior to the time for pick up by TireLocker. Once the tires are delivered to Customer’s dealer, Customer and the dealer are responsible for installation of the tires and/or any other related tire services. If at the same time Customer is changing tires Customer buys new seasonal tires from the Customer’s dealer, at no additional cost TireLocker will pick up the new tires for the old tires when TireLocker is scheduled to deliver and pick up Customer’s seasonal tires. If Customer buys new seasonal tires from a business other than the business that Customer uses to change Customer’s seasonal tires or from the business that Customer uses to change Customer’s seasonal tires but not at the same time Customer is changing Customer’s tires, Customer shall call TireLocker to make arrangements to replace the tires. For an additional fee determined by TireLocker, TireLocker will pick up Customer’s new tires from Customer or at the place of purchase (as long as it is within 10 miles of customer's home address of record) and return the old tires to Customer. Customer and Customer’s dealer will be responsible for disposal of any old tires and any tires after non-renewal of TireLocker services.
DURING THE PERIOD BETWEEN OCTOBER 1 AND DECEMBER 15 OF EACH YEAR AND BETWEEN MARCH 1 AND MAY 15 OF EACH YEAR (“CHANGING SEASON”) CUSTOMER MUST NOTIFY TIRELOCKER BY PHONE AT LEAST 72 HOURS PRIOR TO THE TIME FOR TIRE CHANGING (THE 72 HOURS TO EXCLUDE WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS) IN ORDER TO PROVIDE TIRELOCKER WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO DELIVER THE TIRES TO CUSTOMER’S DEALER.

CUSTOMER MUST USE A DEALER TO CHANGE CUSTOMER’S TIRES THAT AGREES TO ACCEPT FROM TIRELOCKER AND HOLD CUSTOMER’S TIRES FOR A PERIOD OF AT LEAST THREE FULL BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE TIME FOR CHANGING AND AT LEAST THREE FULL BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE TIME FOR PICK UP BY TIRELOCKER. CUSTOMER MUST ENSURE CUSTOMER’S TIRES ARE READY FOR PICK UP WHEN THE INITIAL PICK UP IS SCHEDULED; FAILURE BY CUSTOMER TO COMPLY WITH SUCH OBLIGATION SHALL RESULT IN AN EXTRA FEE OF NOT LESS THAN $75 PLUS APPLICABLE TAX FOR EACH DELVERY AND EACH PICKUP AS DETERMINED BY TIRELOCKER FOR THE NEXT PICK UP OR DELIIVERY. CUSTOMER AGREES TIRELOCKER IS PERMITTED TO MARK OR OTHERWISE IDENTIFY CUSTOMER'S TIRES FOR TRACKING PURPOSES.
TireLocker is not responsible for any services or products provided by Customer’s dealer. Such services and products are the sole responsibility of Customer. Customer shall be solely responsible for disposal at any time of all tires and Customer agrees to make such disposal in accordance with all applicable laws. If after the Services are no longer requested by Customer, TireLocker disposes of any of Customer’s tires or needs to charge customer for any other additional fees, Customer hereby authorizes TireLocker to charge Customer’s credit and/or debit card, and otherwise hold Customer responsible, for the cost of such disposal, plus $300.00.

If TireLocker terminates this Agreement before the end of the then current service year, and only if Customer does not owe any amounts to TireLocker, as Customer's sole remedy, Customer shall be entitled to only a pro rata unused portion of the yearly fee then paid by Customer for the then current service year based on the number of elapsed days in the then current service year.
Acknowledgment of Existing Conditions
