QuoteMeToday Respond to Growing Motor Trade Industry in USA

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2012) - UK insurance brokers, QuoteMeToday, were impressed by the surge in January American auto-trading and are hoping the increase will set a precedent for the British industry to follow. New car sales in the US rose by almost double the forecasted percentage in January 2012.

QuoteMeToday specialise in the acquisition of bespoke motor trade insurance on behalf of clients. Their standpoint on the surprise January increment in new car sales across the pond, is one of positive optimism. The brokers are hoping the UK can replicate the success of what looks to be a new approach by the auto-trade industry in the States.

The January increase of over 11% was the largest growth in over two years. It seemed to be prompted by a less commercialised strategy from American auto-traders, who turned their focus to profitability - abandoning the temptation to offer wild incentives to customers in order to obtain a bigger share of the market. For traders in the UK following suit, they can insure their business with the fully supportive QuoteMeToday.

The UK 'scrappage scheme' was twinned with America's 'cash for clunkers' programme in 2009, which seemed to have a positive impact on both countries. Since then, more people are buying new cars in order to lower their carbon emissions, lower their tax bands and potentially lower their insurance too. QuoteMeToday are backing new car technology all the way - a spokesperson for the brokers commented:

'Any sort of increase for the industry worldwide is a boost. There are so many environmental and practical benefits to driving a new car - including saving money in the long run. For the auto-traders, we want to ensure their businesses are protected adequately enough to ride out the economic downturn and prosper when business picks back up a bit - just like in the US.'

Meanwhile, there has been another pocket of promise in the global industry with Russia seeing a 20% increase in January, according to the Association of European Business. QuoteMeToday are remaining hopeful for the British market and are always on standby should dealers want to acquire a solid motor traders insurance package.
