Truckers are always looking for ways to reduce costs for their operation. Goodyear’s Smart Fleet Business Solutions Manager Jose Martinez and Business Solutions Specialist Dustin Lancy spoke with Land Line about the benefits of the Smart Fleet program.
- The Smart Fleet program gives truck drivers an opportunity to save money on tires, tire-related services and take advantage of a 24/7 roadside service. Here are some of the perks of Goodyear’s Smart Fleet program:
- National account with Goodyear
- Published prices
- Savings on new tires, retreads and tire-related services
- 24/7 roadside service with no dispatch fee
- Network with more than 2,200 dealers
- No cost or fees
Drivers who sign up with Smart Fleet can access the reduced published prices on its website. With the prices readily available, there is no need for members to negotiate with participating dealers. Simply mention your Smart Fleet membership and reap the benefits of discounted pricing.
“It’s a win-win situation for all parties,” Martinez explained. “Dealers benefit also because their commissions are significantly higher than the commissions on regular accounts. The dealers don’t even see the pricing. That’s between us and the Goodyear Smart Fleet members.”
With more than 2,000 dealers participating in the program, members will always have help no matter where they are in the country.
“Those 2,200-plus dealers help us lower response time even when the small guy breaks down in the middle of nowhere,” Martinez said. “We will have somebody not that far.”
Smart Fleet also features new benefits every season. For example, the upcoming fall benefits will include specials on Goodyear’s LHS and LHD long-haul Fuel Max tire and LHD Fuel Max retreads.
There is also a mail-in rebate for new members’ first purchase that includes $25 off of up to 10 tires, saving as much as $250. OOIDA members enjoy even more savings with a $50 rebate on up to 10 tires, saving up to $500.
Smart Fleet members can also download the RoadService app for quick and easy assistance. Customer service for roadside service is available 24/7 by calling 888-888-8687. Drivers who have questions about the program can also call that number from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday. In the future, both roadside service and general customer service will be available any time and any day.
