Uber Teams Up With Home Depot To Deliver Christmas Trees

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Getting a Christmas tree from the store to your front door will be a little easier in Dallas, at least for one day.

On Thursday, December 5, smartphone app Uber and Home Depot have teamed up to deliver live Christmas trees to homeowner’s doorsteps.

Customers will need to download the free Uber app to request a tree delivery.  From 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Uber will deliver a 7-8 ft. Frasier fur tree, a stand, and an Uber gift card to your front door for $135.

Uber has built a loyal and vocal customer base in Dallas, despite initial problems with the city and a rivalry with local taxi companies.

A proposal to draft an ordinance which would impact Uber’s services was presented to Dallas City Council members, but a final decision has not been made.

Critics of the service claim Uber should be subject to the same rules and regulations as taxis.  Uber says it is a tech company, not a transportation company.
