I obviously have the benefit of hearing about so many brilliant business ideas, and I love the variety in what I do. But I can safely say that there is nothing out there like The Love Car. When I met Mandy, and first heard all about their business idea, I was blown away. It had such simplicity, but was so unusual and had so much personality. And the fact that their entire business idea centres around the emotional experience that music creates for their customers - well, I was a fan from day one! These guys have done a truly incredible job in setting up their business and I know it won't be long until everyone in Perth will know all about the awesomeness of The Love Car.

Obviously I know all about you and your awesome business - but please tell the readers a little more about your business and what makes you unique?
The Love Car is unique in many ways. It is unique in that it is an Australian first, and we also consider it to be one of the most unique (and meaningful) gifts a person can send to another.
Essentially we deliver “feels on wheels”. We use your words and back it with a personalised soundtrack and deliver it via our pimped out, confetti popping, jaw dropping VW Beetle with state of the art sound system. It is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or to simply brighten someone’s day. Only those who have received a personal Love Car delivery understand the Love Car feeling, it’s a feeling that can’t be put into words and leaves you feeling a million bucks. We could all do with a bit more ‘love’ in our lives, right!?!
We are local to Perth but you don’t have to live in Perth (or Australia) to book a Love Car experience for someone. It is actually an ideal gift for those who don’t live in Perth or work away and can’t make it back for a special occasion. The Love Car provides a way for you to connect with that person (or persons) on that day and we guarantee they will feel your presence!
What’s been going on since we caught up?
First and foremost we are in business!
We have had an amazing response and coverage of our business through all forms of media, The West Australian, The Sunday Times and more locally through the Fremantle Gazette. We have even made it to National TV with our story making it to the Today Show where they were able to film us doing a real delivery! It has been an amazing ride so far and we cannot wait to see what lies ahead.
What was your favourite part about our coaching sessions?
There is so much ‘noise’ when trying to start up a new business it is so easy to get lost and it can be hard to know where to focus your energy. I loved that your sessions kept focus on specific goals that led to the end result of having a solid business plan at the end that we could easily follow and we still refer back to it when we are feeling a little side tracked. And catching up for a coffee in good company each week was an added bonus!
What are you focusing on for the rest of the year?
To continue to grow awareness of our business and bring back some love (in all its forms).
We want to have a bit of fun experimenting with the different ways the Love Car can be used in sharing different kinds of love, such as a bit of light hearted banter between mates. Although the Love Car is a concept taken from Brazil, we can’t wait to put our Australian mark on it and what better way than with a bit of Aussie banter? Some people struggle to show their emotions and the Love Car can be a fun way of showing you care without having to get too mushy. That’s not to say we don’t enjoy Love Car deliveries to the hopeless romantics of Perth. We are yet to do a proposal – that would be a hoot!
Any other news, events or offers you’d like to share?
We have been called entrepreneurs and now walk around a little taller due to this official title ;)
As mentioned earlier, our main focus for the remainder of the year is to get our unique experience out there. We would love to rock up in someone’s driveway with tunes blaring in the background while we play a pre-recorded message or one liner from someone’s Bestie. There may not be anyone else that understands the message, but the person it’s intended for will get it especially when they hear the music that the message has been paired with. We can assure you the smile on their face would be hard to wipe for weeks to come.
It doesn’t have to be a big occasion to book a Love Car experience and that is why we would like to offer a Love Car delivery to someone who wants to share a bit of love with their Bestie (or workmate, or partner, or heck even a stranger), our shout!
The first person to directly contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org who has someone in Perth that they would like to share some 'love' with, will receive a free Love Car delivery!
