Quad insurance is up to 70% cheaper than car insurance
United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 31 May 2012
With the cost of living continuing to increase and the effects of the continued economic downturn, many young drivers are choosing to buy a brand new quad bike over a second hand car with sales in quad insurance reaching an all time high in the UK and Northern Ireland.
Birmingham based insurance specialist Falcon Insurance provides insurance to many sectors including: vehicles, housing, business, charities, places of worship and much more. Falcon Insurance has established a reputation as a specialist insurance broker in all these sectors and a specialist insurance provider for all types of vehicle insurance, in particular for road legal and off-road quad bikes, buggies and other all terrain vehicles (ATVs).
Sales of quad bikes have grown year on year, in particular sales of road legal quads continue to outgrow sales of other vehicles such as motorbikes. Falcon has recognised the potential growth in this sector for insurance providing cover for all types of quads, modified quads, sports quads, imported quads and much more.
The current boom in quad bike sales has had a significant impact on the number of telephone and online quad insurance enquiries received at Falcon Insurance and ultimately on the quantity of quad, buggy and ATV policies sold by Falcon Insurance.
Ronnie Roberts, Sales Manager of Falcon Insurance adds: “Quad bikes are no longer seen as working vehicles. Over the last year, sales of adult road legal quad bikes have reached an all time high with dealerships springing up all over the UK.
“With petrol becoming increasingly expensive, a quad bike is seen as a real alternative mode of transport, with low running costs, purchase price and insurance up to 70% cheaper than car insurance, so it’s easy to see why they’re becoming so popular. In particular younger drivers don’t need to have any specialist licence, but can ride a quad bike with a full UK driving licence.”
Falcon Insurance is the chosen provider of cheap quad bike insurance, particularly for younger drivers aged from 17 whom many competing insurance companies won’t insure until they are at least 19 or in some instances 21.
Ronnie Roberts adds: “People ride for many different reasons – some just want a weekend car while others see quad bikes as a real alternative to a car or motorbike for every day use. As well as younger drivers, quad bikes are fast becoming an alternative weekend car for the over 40s who are looking for something a bit different that is both fun and quirky.”
Falcon Insurance compares quad insurance quotes with other companies to ensure their policies are tailored to fit the individual rider and their needs. With the growth in quad bikes, unfortunately there has been a growth in the number of thefts of quad bikes. From their UK based call centre, Falcon provides support and guidance on keeping quad bikes safe including recommending keeping in a garage, using insurance approved locks, alarms and immobilisers.
