Customising your car to promote your business

By in Classic Cars, Interesting News and Tips

As the trend of food trucks has risen in recent years, so too has the popularity of mobile businesses.

From flower deliveries to coffee carts, mobile laundries to pet bathing services. What do all of these businesses have in common? Kickass branding on their vehicles!

Branding has the power to make or break a business. And potential customers can and will judge a business by its aesthetic. It’s not just mobile businesses that utilise branded vehicles either – though these entrepreneurs tend to have the sleekest look as their vehicle is literally their profit-maker.

So we take a look at some of the best-branded vehicles getting around. What type of vehicles best reflects your brand? Is it a banged up vintage ute, or a cute mini in a rainbow of colours? Read on to find out!

Vintage Grunge

Death Before Decaf in New Farm is renowned for their banged up 1965 Chevrolet C10. The rustic vintage car perfectly encapsulates the business’ grungy vibe. The patina paint job only adds to the punkish “don’t give a damn” attitude of the shop front itself.

Vintage Chic

In stark comparison, Hawthorne Garage in Bulimba has transformed a vintage Chevy into a sleek, branded vehicle. The grocery store has taken over an old car garage and still incorporates the aesthetic into its branding. The Chevy has a stained wood flatbed and bright red, iconic paint job that cannot be missed.

Pastel VW

Tom Organic is so much more than an organic tampon company! They aim to empower women everywhere, by first ensuring that they’re comfortable in their own bodies. Their VW Kombi gives off distinctly feminine, fun yet elegant vibes.

Ruby Red Van

Ruby, the little red ice-cream van, is somewhat famous around Brisbane. Bright, cheerful and inviting, it’s everything you want in an ice-cream van. The van itself doesn’t appear to be anything too special, but with a good paint job and the right accessories, it really makes an impression!

Driveable Astro Turf

Cafe 63 have possibly one of the most unique approaches to their company vehicles. Choosing astro turf rather than a stock-standard paint job is definitely eye-catching. Though we imagine it would be pretty difficult to clean!

Looking for professional business branding for your car?

There are a number of businesses around Brisbane that will assist with signage for your work vehicles. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more unique, why not purchase a vintage vehicle and have it revamped by a professional? Benzine Works are experts in vintage car restorations, and can design a paint job that will have eyes turning whenever your business’s car drives past!
