The Branch Team SMART Car Gets a New Look

The Branch Team SMART Car

What we started over a month ago became a reality this afternoon.  We recently purchased a SMART Car for use in our business. The car is unique and where ever you go someone wants to stop and talk to you.

One of our initial ideas was to wrap it as part of our local marketing efforts.  It seemed like a natural way to combine the uniqueness of the car with some marketing for the team.

After interviewing a number of companies who could wrap the SMART Car, we selected SkinzWraps. Located in Dallas, SkinzWraps has a nice product and lots of experience with SMART Cars. 

Our first meeting with their design staff resulted in a couple of draft ideas. We really pushed them to think out of the box and to come up with something as unique as the car itself.

In the end, they came up with a design that met those requirements.  The SMART Car is anything but fast. In fact it scored number one on few economy for traditional gasoline engines and was dead last for the quarter mile. Skinzwraps has experience wrapping NASCAR race cars so they came up with the idea to wrap the SMART Car as a RE/MAX sponsored race car. 

We sold a few advertising spaces to some of our ancillary service venders to offset the costs. You'll see their advertisements on the front air-dam and front fenders. 

We'll have to see how the public reception goes over the next few weeks.

I have to be honest.

Your car gives me a headache!

And that's just the picture of it!!

If that thing drove up my street I would wince and look away!

Phil,

Would it help if it was the Keller Williams Hummer?

An eye catcher for sure.  I hope you do not take it out on 75.

haha at Richard's comments. I can laugh about it now, but 6 years ago, I was ran over by a truck, and an 18-wheeler that struck me from behind on 75. It messed up my back and I have to end my Marathon running dream. I was in a Honda Civic - almost twice as big as your little cute thing.

I've been tiny all my life. That's why I drive an SUV now.

But I think about your little car each time I see a SMART car. I hope to see this around town often!!!

Richard,

I drive up and down 75 and the North Dallas Tollway.  The car holds its own in traffic and turns in $35+ MPG.
