Chauffeuring App ‘Uber’ Offers Christmas Tree Deliveries on Thursday

By Ian Bush

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Transporting a Christmas tree can be a tough task if you live in the city with no vehicle at your disposal.

But now, a popular car service app wants to help.

Normally, you’d use the smartphone app “Uber” to order a sedan or SUV for the night.  But now, it’s  chauffeuring Christmas trees.

For a total of $135, a netted Frazer Fir, seven to eight feet tall and fixed with a stand, will be delivered from Home Depot to your door.

Just like with Uber rides, no cash exchanges hands — it’s all electronic.  The company is offering an option for roommates or co-workers to split the cost of the tree.

The deal is (tomorrow) Thursday only, and Uber warns that availability is limited.

The free app works with Android, Apple, and Blackberry.
