Rhinelander family receives gift after car was stolen while warming upSubmitted: 01/23/2013
Story By Hayley Tenpas


RHINELANDER - The generosity of a local business brings a happy ending for a Rhinelander family.

The Lund family's Monday started off like it did for many of us- warming up the car.

That's until their truck was stolen, right from their own driveway.

A local business heard their story, and decided they wanted to help out.


Stories like this one sound like they're made for the movies.

" After like 20 minutes of running we noticed the vehicle driving off and it wasn't my wife or me driving," said Eric Lund.

The Lund family's truck was stolen. Right from their driveway in Rhinelander.

"It's kind of a scary thing, your vehicle leaving and not knowing who's in it," said Lund.

But like any good movie, this story has a happy ending.

When Sounds & Motion in Rhinelander heard the Lund's story, they knew they had to help out.

"I read the story about the family who had their vehicle stolen when it was being warmed up and I thought that a remote starter for that family would be a great way to just spread the word about what remote starters can do and some of the advantages they have," said Nate Scholten, owner of Sounds & Motion.

Sounds & Motion installed the Lund family's remote starter free of charge Wednesday afternoon.

" I'm very relieved and overwhelmed, you know? Nate from sounds and motion is a great person and it's an excellent business here, not only did he install a remote starter in the truck for us, but now, we feel safe at home. We don't have to worry about someone stealing our vehicle," said Lund.

It's a relief coming from a business that cares.

"I'm most proud of just the fact that I'm able to help. It's not just me it's all the guys here. They all contribute, significantly," said Scholten.
