UK motorcycle insurance broker offers free crash protectors

UK bikers can now get their hands on free crash protectors when they take out a motorcycle insurance policy with leading broker, Carole Nash. The crash protectors (also called crash bungs, or mushrooms) bolt onto the side of the motorcycle frame and can help to reduce serious damage when the bike is dropped onto its side.

Head of marketing at Carole Nash, Rebecca Donohue, said: “In these tough economic times we’ve been looking even harder for ways we can help bikers reduce their costs. We came up with this deal with R&G because it’s a real win-win. Bikers get high quality crash protectors absolutely free which can not only minimise the cost of any accident claim but even prevent the need to claim. That then protects no claims discounts which can be as high as 65 percent. Minimising the cost of claims also minimises future premiums.”

Bikers who buy a fully comprehensive bike insurance policy with Carole Nash will receive free crash protectors, which retail for anywhere between £50 and £176 in from motorcycle accessory suppliers. Made from snap-resistant, high tensile steel bolts, and featuring bobbins with compression sleeves, the R&G crash protectors can significantly reduce the cost of repairing the bikes frame and bodywork.
