A-Plan Insurance in Altrincham is keen to spread the word that Altrincham town centre is very much open for business.

Businesses in Altrincham, and indeed everywhere, have been on a roller coaster ride this year and have had to react quickly at every turn. Even though the current climate is extremely unpredictable, A-Plan is keen to emphasise that they are very much open for business to assist local people along with local traders.

The Altrincham branch of A-Plan Insurance is situated at 52 Stamford New Road in the town and provides a small insight as to what life is now like on the high street. The business prides itself on talking directly to its clients either in the branch or over the phone so is well placed to gauge public opinion.

Matt Dodd, branch manager, said: “From a technical perspective we have managed to stay open using remote technology that enables staff to work from home, we are incredibly fortunate in that sense.

"Clients on the phone have experienced minimal disruption and have really valued talking to a human being. We are back in the branch now with the appropriate precautions in place.

"Altrincham high street is looking busier and it’s great to see people out supporting the local economy, the team and I are extremely proud to be playing a part in this”.

A-Plan has over 100 branches throughout the country and nearby teams in Wilmslow and Macclesfield have also reported a positive uplift recently which is encouraging for the region as a whole.

Charities have been hit particularly hard recently, so A-Plan is keen to hear from local charities that want to be considered as a nominated charity partner for the remainder of 2020.

Clients will have the opportunity to vote for their preferred choice with the winning organisation then having the ability to receive a donation per policy sold when someone mentions that charity. Representatives should contact Matt and the A-Plan team directly by either visiting the branch or calling 0161 341 2133 (closing date for applications is October 12, 2020).
