Need That Whale-Shaped Tea Infuser, Pronto? Amazon Delivers to Your Car

Need That Whale-Shaped Tea Infuser, Pronto? Amazon Delivers to Your Car

Amazon, which recently started an offer to deliver packages inside people's homes, now offers to deliver inside people's cars.

Another customer has been using the new service to have birthday presents for her daughter delivered.

In November, the company launched its Amazon Key program, which is now available for Prime members.

In-car delivery is restricted to a handful of auto brands: compatible 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicles with an active OnStar account, or an 2015 Volvo vehicle with active Volvo On Call. Support for even more vehicle makes and models will be added over time, according to a release.

Following early-access testing through select customers, the tech and e-tail giant has rolled out Key In-Car, which essentially turns the trunk of your car into a mailbox where couriers can directly deliver packages.

To use the service you have to park your auto within two blocks of your home or office, and then request delivery using the Amazon Key app.

Amazon has developed multiple delivery options: First, drones, then in-home, and now it will deliver packages right into your auto.

For those who are anxious about security and think that it couldn't possibly be safe to have a stranger unlock their vehicle to leave a package inside the trunk, Amazon highlights that it has taken several security measures.

US Justice Dept. to probe AT&T, Verizon wireless contracts
The person also said the Justice Department previously examined this matter in 2016, but ended up dropping the investigation. In February, the Justice Department requested information from AT&T, Verizon, and the G.S.M.A regarding collusion.

Once the driver is standing next to the vehicle, they tap on the app and it opens the locks.

Amazon is steering its delivery service in a new direction, now bringing your packages to your back seat.

The service will only be available to Amazon Prime subscribers and is limited to owners of GM and Volvo vehicles, model year 2015 or newer, with active OnStar and Volvo on Call accounts. Customers will be notified when the delivery has been completed and the auto is relocked. So would you allow Amazon access to your vehicle or nah?

Amazon Key will now deliver packages into a customer's vehicle at no extra charge, saving them time and money.

Customers won't be able to get in-car deliveries if they park inside gated and underground parking garages where satellite signals often can't penetrate.

Couriers can use those assistance services to find the cars through satellite location-tracking and unlock the trunk. It does require that the vehicle is parked "near" a registered customer delivery location, like their home or office. The driver clicked the app, opened the trunk, popped in the package and was gone in five minutes.

Others found the entire concept of in-car or in-home deliveries ludicrous.

Another customer said it helped him keep personal and business orders separate by giving him another delivery site.
