MotorCycle Direct have grown into one of the largest bike insurance specialists in the country over the last five years. They have done it through a combination of keen prices and good service, allied to a level of product knowledge second to none. As a part of the giant A-Plan Insurance Group, established for over 40 years and with over 400,000 customers, MotorCycle Direct has the sort of backing that many specialist brokers can only dream of, and that gives their customers a degree of confidence that just doesn't happen with other companies.

Their online quote engine was designed specifically to provide a fast, easy to navigate service while still getting enough information to provide a sensible quote, something we considered very important when choosing our next partner.

Perhaps even more important than the fact that you can get a quote from them easily is the fact that over 50% of their business comes from referrals and recommendations from existing customers. That speaks volumes for their customer service and was essential for anyone with whom we could do business. Having used them personally, and been unfortunate enough to make a claim, I speak from experience when I say that they handled the whole thing cleanly, efficiently and pleasantly. While falling off a bike is never going to be fun, having a friendly and helpful insurance company at least makes the aftermath slightly less unpleasant.

On the technical side, they currently have a relationship with over a dozen insurance providers, often with special deals which are unique to them and allow even better premium rates to their customers. As seems to be increasingly the case these days, they provide a raft of other services as well, including car, home and life insurance. All their bike policies include both legal and breakdown cover as standard.

All these things meant that when we were looking for a new online insurance partner they were the obvious choice. We will be incorporating links to their quote engine in several places on the site. If you see a bike you like the look of we want to make it as easy as possible for you to see if it's insurable. Feel free to get a quote - it won't take long and there's no obligation.
