Variety is the spice of life, and we love a spicy life.
Lets be honest, as car lovers if we could add to our garage every day, week or month, we would. There is nothing like the buzz of getting a new car, regardless of it's age or condition.
The stark reality is most of us mere mortals can't afford to indulge in such a pleasure, however, whilst we were losing hours of our life in Instagram a few weeks ago we stumbled on something rather interesting.
What if I told you it was possible to get a car related buzz, every month AND get goodies? Well hold on to your manifolds and prepare to die and go to high revving heaven because that is exactly what we found.
Meet Oscar, the brains behind Car Guy Crates. And what's more? This bloke is 17........let that sink in. When I was 17 I couldn't even figure out MySpace and this entrepreneurial fella is making our lives better one box at a time.
Carguycrates.co.uk is the car box subscription service that delivers all sorts of amazing car related products right to your door each month. Get over £35 worth of automotive coolness for way less. What's not to like?
Obviously we were intrigued, both in the offer and in Oscar himself, how what and when? Naturally we stalked, DM'd and tracked the poor chap down to ask him some questions, and this is what he said when we found him....
what was your inspiration to start the business?
I had always liked the idea of a subscription service for car enthusiasts but when I searched for one there wasn’t something out there that offered a wide range of products at the right price. So, I decided that I would take the opportunity to start my own.
What did you want to achieve from starting Car Guy Crates?
I wanted to create something that every car enthusiast would look forward to every month. Also on a personal level I wanted to prove that young people have got the initiative and can build something from nothing. And although we are young we should not be discredited in the world of business.
There are a few other companies doing something pretty similar to you, so I want to know what makes Car Guy Crates unique?
Firstly, the customers have the choice of what sort of products they receive through our four themes which nobody else in the market offers.
As well as this, we 100% put our customers first and take on board their feedback to keep our products up to date and appealing to everyone. I have had multiple customers who were with similar companies switch to our crates and praise our great customer service.
What does 2018 have in store for Car Guy crates?
The list is endless, but I can’t reveal too much. We have a new product lined up for release in the coming months as well as expanding our customer base with the release of a brand new style of crate. But our main priority for 2018 is to continue growing our brand as well as keeping our products at a high standard.
I took the liberty of chatting with some of your subscribers and get some car related questions from them to shoot at you, one line answers, here we go!
I’d love a Huracán Performante.
If you bought a crate which theme would you choose?
A Euro crate.
What was your first car?
I’m only 17 so I’m still on my first car but I have a Fiesta Zetec S.
F1 or Touring cars?
I do love touring cars, but I prefer F1.
Will you release a detailing only crate in the future?
Possibly, but you’ll just have to wait and see.
And finally, if you had to listen to one song in your car, what would it be?
Umm, probably something by Metallica.
And there you have it ladies and gentlemen. I don't know about you but I think this deserves an awful lot of praise and support.
