Get Spiffy Adds Spiffy Tires Division
New service includes tire recycling
Get Spiffy, an on-demand car care, technology, and service company is expanding to enter the tire services market.
Spiffy got its start improving the car wash and detailing customer experience, before branching out into maintenance services in 2017.
Today Spiffy services over 1,000 vehicles per day, and estimates, 5-10 percent of those vehicles have tires with low treads.
The new Spiffy Tires service offers mobile and fixed-site tire installation for fleets and features a number of reliable brands, such as Michelin, Continental, and BF Goodrich.
The company plans to provide additional car care services to customers in office parks and residences including individual tire sales and installation, starting with a pilot program in Raleigh-Durham, company officials said.
Spiffy also announced a new eco-friendly programknown as Spiffy Green, the new program is a partnership with Franklinton, NC-based PRTI and their patented PRTI Thermal Demanufacturing process. Through the partnership, Spiffy is able to send used tires to PRTI processing plants, which demanufactures and breaks them down into carbon char, steel, and oil.
“We’re eager to be a green partner with Spiffy as they roll out their tire services across the country,” PRTI President and CEO, Jason Williams, said in a statement.
“Properly demanufacturing tires not only generates a variety of valuable commodities but addresses the demand to offload waste across the tire manufacturing industry. Working directly with Spiffy gives us a local partner.”
Spiffy founder Scott Wingo said sustainability is in the company’s DNA. It began with reclaiming water from car washes and expanded to recycling 100% of the used oil from oil changes. Partnering with PRTI provides an eco-friendly solution to the tire industry, he said.
Founded in 2014 by Wingo and partner, Karl Murphy in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Spiffy offers a variety of hand car washing, advanced detailing, oil change and maintenance service options. Customers can schedule in less than two minutes with the Spiffy app.
