Hey Amazon Prime users, you don’t have to worry about porch piracy any longer if you drive a certain type of car. Amazon is now going over and beyond their typical home delivery service and offering shipment deliveries to the trunk of customer’s cars.
The new service is called Amazon Key In-Car Delivery and is available to more than 100,000,000 prime users in 37 cities, including Phoenix.
The new delivery service works through an app that allows the customers when a purchase is made to authorize their car to be unlocked remotely when the delivery driver is nearby, all done without a key or a security code. After the delivery is made, Amazon will notify customers that the package has been delivered to the trunk and confirmation that the vehicle is locked up.
This new service does not work with every car. Customers who a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac and from 2015 or later that have On-Star. The delivery service can also be used on Volvo that is equipped with “On-Call.”
Amazon and customers are hoping this latest service will protect from porch pirates.
