Amazon is one company that never fails to amaze me. They come up with brilliant and 'out-of-the-box' ideas on how to get your products delivered to you.
Last year, Amazon did what no company did before. They asked for permission to unlock your front door to leave packages inside your home. Now, the tech giant wants to do the same thing with your car.
Amazon announced today a new service that gives its deliverymen access to a customer's vehicle for the purpose of leaving package deliveries inside! Wow!
Check-out this video posted by Amazon, showing their first few customers who used their new service:
If you're wondering how this will work out, the service will only be available to Amazon Prime subscribers. As of right now, only owners of GM and Volvo vehicles, model year 2015 or newer, with active OnStar and Volvo on Call accounts will have access to this service.
Amazon says it plans to add other automobile brands over time. Packages that weigh over 50 pounds, are larger than 26 x 21 x 16 inches in size, require a signature, are valued over $1,300, or come from a third-party seller also are not eligible for in-car delivery.
Amazon wants to use the connected technologies embedded in many modern vehicles today. As of right now, the service is only being tested and offered in 37 states.
