Amazon Launches In-Car Delivery For Prime Members

27 April 2018

That's how Amazon delivery drivers will be able to unlock the cars to leave packages inside without the owner of the auto present.

The Seattle company on Tuesday began offering delivery in 37 cities to Amazon Prime members who own newer General Motors or Volvo vehicles.

Perhaps this latest advancement in Amazon shipping will protect more people from porch pirates.

To find out if your auto qualifies for the service, enter your vehicle's information on Amazon's website. Packages are placed in the vehicle's trunk or out of plain sight.

In-car delivery is available to customers with a compatible 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle with an active OnStar account, and customers with a 2015 or newer Volvo vehicle with an active Volvo On Call account.

Key includes a "smart lock" for customers' doors, so they can be opened by the courier and a security camera.

An app allows customers to buy something and authorize their vehicle to be unlocked remotely when the delivery person is nearby without a key or security code.

Customers can track when their auto was unlocked and relocked through the app, where they can also rate the experience.

Amazon said more cities will soon be added to receive in-vehicle delivery.
