dream more, work less

maybe if we all aspire to this we could shape the world into a slightly improved place

what would happen if you did this?

what would those around you think?

what would be the impact of a few more of us getting on board?

food for thought as we wander into the weekend…

And then there were two, welcome Diabetes Australia – Vic.

So we have just finished celebrating the breakthrough of our first customer signing on when the good folks at Diabetes Australia – Vic decide to get on board too! It is such an honour to be working with this fine organisation. To assist them in delivering the Diabetes prevention message will be a real thrill. AdOnCar is steeped in community and to be delivering such an important community service announcement is most rewarding. So if you are over 50 and havent thought about it yet, its time to reflect on your Diabetes awareness. Lisa and the team at Diabetes are reaching out to you all to attend a potentially life altering class on how to prevent Diabetes.

50 year olds plus are the main offenders here so get active folks!

More details on the Diabetes prevention program here:

Life! Taking Action on Diabetes

The good news is a Life! course can help you prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes and is free for most people.

The tailored course can help you feel better and live longer to spend more time with your family and friends. The number of new cases of type 2 diabetes can be halved in people at high risk who have attended a lifestyle course.

If you are at risk and over 50 get on course.  If you think you are at risk, take a risk assessment test.

If you need more information call 13RISK (13 7475).

I had a dream…

Walk with me for a moment…

You have this idea – its pretty neat – kinda sorta been tried previously, with no real success – plenty of more informed people tell you it is one for the too hard basket – you gamble everything – time running out – you start working on your apology speech to the kids and your long suffering wife – then it happens….

Head to YouTube where my right hand man @deejaymorgan has mashed up a beautiful thing:

Kurt Vonnegut once wrote – “God Bless you Mr. Rosewater” … I paraphrase with a slight edit – “God bless you Buzz Insurance” 🙂

A big week in the short history of AdOnCar

Apologies for the delay in this post – it was supposed to post on 19th March! Better late than never?

Well folks I am delighted to announce that AdOnCar has secured the first customer for its On Car Advertising format. The Buzz Insurance part of the Insurance Australia Group has signed on for a good proportion of our fleet. We are thrilled to have such a strong community focused organisation on board and strongly endorse all and sundry to check them out for your own car insurance requirements.

The Buzz Insurance is Australia’s first online insurer that’s genuinely been shaped by the community. That is they design their products and services hand in hand with the community to ensure they are providing value to Australians wanting insurance.

They’re online and a part of Insurance Australia Group (you may know their sister brands CGU, SWANN, NRMA, SGIO, SGIC). They’re also strongly connected with the RACV who has a 30% interest in The Buzz.

They’ve got a few basic aims:

  • to be simple (because insurance is important but it can be a bit technical)
  • to be available on line 24/7 (so you can get insurance when it suits you)
  • to be easy to deal with (because they know people have got other things to do)
  • to be fair and transparent (so you know what you need and what it costs)
  • and to continue to improve and grow with input from the community.

Well that’s cool enough for me to endorse them!

8 down 42 to go

The second day of wrapping was completed earlier than expected today. the crew have really upped the ante and are wrapping at warp factor 9. It is such a buzz watching this happen and we feel its only fair we share this with you, so check out the Flickr group we have set up here –

With a full 3 days of wrapping booked up we expect to have this knocked on the head very soon.

The first day of car wrapping

We were delighted to wrap our first cars yesterday. Now throughout the Caulfield area in Melbourne there are a number of The Buzz Insurance (online car insurance)cars running around. Check out a few pics from the day here:
