will now offer delivery into your car’s boot – and it is free, the company announced Tuesday. The new update is actually the extending of Key delivery service from homes to personal vehicles. Now, with Key In-Car, couriers will deliver packages inside signed up customers’ cars.

However, not everyone is able to try out this new feature as it is available only for the US owners of Volvo and GM models with an active Volvo On Call or OnStar subscription.

Here’s how it works:

  • First, you have to download the Key app and link it with online concierge account.
  • Then shop as on , selecting in-car delivery on check out. You need to provide the address where the car is parked within a two-block radius. Deliveries “can only be made to a stationary car parked in an open, street-level, and publicly accessible area” the website stipulates. That includes a home or publicly-accessible workplace.
  • In four hours, your purchases will be delivered, usually 11AM to 3PM for two-day delivery or 5PM to 9PM for same-day delivery.
  • The day of delivery, an driver finds the car via GPS, verifies “the delivery driver, car and driver location, and that the package was ordered with in-car delivery” before the driver can unlock the car with their app. They will first try and fit the package in the boot, but will put it in the cabin if that is not possible. If the car is unavailable or has moved, will default to the backup delivery option customers have specified.
  • The delivery driver then exits the vehicle or closes the doors. The app forces the driver to confirm “that the vehicle is securely locked before the driver can move away from the vehicle”  and automatically re-locks the car if for whatever reason the car does not get re-locked by the driver.
  • Finally, you’ll get ’s notification when the delivery is done.

Stay in touch with your delivery location

But even that’s not all.  now lets shoppers track the exact location of their delivery drivers on a map, Business Insider reports.

The new feature, called Map Tracking, provides live updates on drivers’ delivery routes, including how many stops are left before their package arrives.

launched the Map Tracking feature in November, and it’s now available for all packages delivered by in the US, the company said.

“The Map Tracking feature is another delivery innovation we are working on to improve convenience for our customers and provide them greater visibility into their deliveries,” spokeswoman Alana Broadbent said.

The driver’s location will become available to customers when fewer than 10 stops remain on the courier’s route to deliver their package.
