Swinton Bikes Sign Up Almost 2,000 UK Dealerships

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2010) - Swinton Bikes, one of the UK's leading motorcycle insurance brokers, has seen an exceptionally high take up for the new dealer referral scheme just one month after its launch.

Figures from Swinton Bikes show that almost 2,000 UK motorcycle dealerships have signed up to the new 2010 scheme, with many more expected to join over the coming weeks.

The popular dealer referral scheme pays dealers Pounds Sterling 10 for every customer they refer to the Swinton Bikes call centre for a bike insurance quote, regardless of whether a policy is actually taken out.

The Swinton Bikes dealer referral scheme uses a unique automated call tracking system and gives every dealer their own personal 0800 number, allowing automatic call logging and ensuring that dealers know they're getting the correct referral bonus each month.

Anthony Aronin, head of Swinton Bikes said: "We're delighted to see that the new incentives for 2010 have attracted so many dealers to the referral scheme. The relationship between dealer and broker is really important to us and we're always looking for new ways to maintain it and build on it even further.

"As well as the focus on levels of support to dealers in 2010, we are planning to roll out a series of schemes and incentives to make the dealer referral scheme more attractive and also easier to access."

The dealer referral scheme is open to any motorcycle dealer in the UK. Any dealers who would like to sign up the scheme can call 0800 068 7988 or email bikedealers@swinton.co.uk

Swinton Bikes is a division of the Swinton Group and searches through motorbike schemes from top insurers who offer low premiums to owners of all types of bikes and scooters and quad bikes.
