SAN JOSE, CA-Spieker Properties is enhancing its customer services with onsite automotive services for tenants of The Concourse, it’s property at the San Jose International Airport. The publicly traded office and industrial REIT also is considering providing that perk and others to many of its properties.

The lucky service provider is Texas Tea Inc. a Silicon Valley-based automotive service company. Spieker Properties’ tenants use Texas Tea’s website to set up an appointment for an oil change or hand car wash or a 30,000-mile tune up. It also provides tenant’s a way to track and store vehicle service history online.

“This kind of service can be done without disrupting the workday — it makes great sense and should be well received by our customers,” says Lucy Moreno, project director for Spieker’s office portfolio in Silicon Valley. Moreno no doubt hopes it also will be well received by potential customers as well. Acting as an aggregator, Spieker can secure additional benefits for its tenants’ employees by providing specialty services, like Texas Tea, making its leasing packages more desirable.

Three-year-old Texas Tea has already locked down similar deals with 3Com, Compaq, Microsoft, and Applied Materials. The company is funded by Sierra Angels, BH Equity, and Springboard Angels.
