How Our Quote Request Process Works
When you fill out our quote request form, we match you with tire dealer(s) in our affiliated network located in your area. We then transfer your name, e-mail address, mobile phone number, and any additional information you provide to these affiliated tire dealers. If we cannot find an affiliated dealer in your area, we may transfer your information to a third-party provider, which will process your request through its own dealer network. In either case, a dealer representative could contact you by phone, email, text message, or a combination of all three, to discuss your tire quote request. After the initial contact or during any other subsequent contact, you may inform the dealer you no longer wish to be contacted by him or her. It is solely the dealers responsibility to comply with your request. Similarly, if we transfer your information to a third-party provider in order to carry out your request, you may also be contacted by that provider. You may inform the third-party provider you no longer wish to be contacted. It is solely the third-party provider's responsibility to comply with your request.
