  1. Congratulations to the winner of the Chris Knott Awesome Autumn Prize Draw who has been randomly selected from all the fresh quotes and renewal invitations we issued in the qualification period. Happy Christmas to Dan King, a member of Vectra-C/Signum/Insignia Owners Club who receives the £250 Amazon Voucher courtesy of Chris Knott Insurance. Sorry if you didn't win but thanks to everyone who entered this latest of our competitions. That's it for prizes in 2017 but we'll be back with more offers and the like in the New Year for sure. In the meantime, if you need any assistance with your car insurance, please feel free to make contact on here and I'll be happy to answer any questions. Or, if it's a price you're after, our Quotes Team would love to help you on 0800 917 2274 (please just mention this club/forum to access the special clubs and enthusiasts deal). I'll be posting about our Christmas Opening Hours next week - probably our final post of the year! Thanks all, Nick *** Recent testimonials about our savings, service and support... "Can't beat Chris Knott. Better than the muppets at xxxxxx xxxx." Raiden, Audi-Sport forum "I've been using Chris Knott for the last few years and have been very pleased with their service. That said, not had to make a claim, but have added mods without a huge increase in price. Worth a go when renewal comes around." Lowe, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club "It's insurance time so this year called Chris Knott - beat all other quotes and saved me just over £200 (which is more than 35%) on what I was quoted as a renewal. All mods declared - got to be happy with that! — feeling happy." Simon Davies, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "I'm covered by these guys on both my cars. Top work." steveukv6, VX220org "Thanks Nick, I found an address and sent it off last night, had a call from Kathy today, very good service, Kathy sorted out a couple of things for me and came up with a quote over £70 less than the previous broker who gave appalling customer service back in the summer." Top_Down?, Alfa Romeo Owners Club ***
  2. Why you should request a CK quote this Autumn... Hi, if you were thinking about using a club sponsor for your car insurance but weren't quite sure whether it would be worth it (whether we can compete) you might be interested in 2 things about Chris Knott... 1. Personal service and attention coupled with competitive quotes. Chris Knott recognises that our car insurance quotes have to be competitive in order to win your custom. As we only work with car enthusiasts/club members we have access to insurer schemes that aren't available on comparison sites and the like. The result is a better policy sign-up rate for us and that's obviously down to you experiencing our personal broker service and liking our quotes. 2. Our Awesome Autumn Draw. As has become customary in the run-up to Christmas, we have a competition running to encourage you to pick up the phone for a quote if your renewal is due in the coming weeks. PRIZE: WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas. How to enter: Simply request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote between now and close of play on 30th November* for your chance to win. We'll automatically add you to the draw so there's nothing else for you to do but call us for your car quote - nice and simple. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please make sure you mention this forum to access our special scheme. ONLINE: you can leave contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=AwesomeAutumn We'll make the draw on Friday 1st December so you can choose to either keep the voucher for yourself or there'll still be time to use it to sort your Christmas gifts to others. All the best, Nick PS. The draw is also open to existing Chris Knott clients due for renewal in the same period. ************** More encouragement for you to call us - what others have said about us in recent days: "A huge thank you from me and my husband for getting so much money off our car insurance! I am seriously impressed and extremely grateful. Please send a copy of this email to your manager so that they know what a great job you have done! Have a great weekend." Mary D, Surecar "Thanks for beating my quote, giving me better cover and nearly doubling my mileage (allowance), including covering like for like mods. Happy man." Craig, New Mini Scotland "This is my third year with @ChrisKnottIns and every year they beat all my other quotes for both cars that are modded. Many thanks again and keep up the good work and the prices down!" carlcall, Audi-Sport forum "I'd like to express my appreciation for the way in which Rebecca dealt with changes to our insurance policies. Rebecca went well beyond her remit in finding a quote significantly cheaper than initially available, saving us ~£400, furthermore offering good advice and excellent service. I look forward to dealing with her in the future." Andrew C, Jaguar Forum "Well I got it sorted thanks to Kathy @ Chris Knott Ins, great service." TonyAVFC, FocusSTOC *Genuine quote requests only please - we reserve the right to request proof from the winner that the policy was actually due during the qualification period.
  3. Hi, you've not got long left now - this is your final chance to WIN a £250 Amazon Voucher with Chris Knott! We can quote now for right up to Christmas so if your car insurance is due soon make sure you call us for your quote before the end of this month to enter our draw. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FOR YOUR CLUB CAR - WE CAN COVER ANY OF THE OTHER CARS IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD TOO. If ever you were in doubt about calling us there's plenty of good feedback about our prices and our service across the car club and enthusiast community and on TrustPilot for example. There's also a selection below to encourage you to pick up the phone and see if ours will be your winning quote this year. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (please mention this club/forum to access the special benefits) ONLINE: complete brief contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=AwesomeAutumn and we'll call you back. TIA, Nick *** *** *** "Your guys were great at renewals time earlier this month. Been about 5 years since I last insured through you. Polite, friendly service, well impressed." Goodluckmonkey, TypeAccord "I just took insurance out with yourselves on the 2nd, you were cheaper than all the comparison sites with a better level of cover. Thanks." Daz6, Type-R Owners forum "I was with CK last year and the renewal for this year is only £30 more. I will stay with them again as the ones on the comparison sites were more and that was without their added legal cover, courtesy car, etc." Stev 1550, UKSaabs "Used these guys on and off for years. Great personal service. They actually take an interest in your experience of similar cars to what you are insuring with them, ensuring your premium is fair. Better still, you can go back and haggle. They have beaten every alternative quote I put in front of them. UK based, polite and helpful, this alone goes a long, long way. Refreshing common sense insurance in a world of grief and headache." Tom Merriott "Just renewed insurance with Chris Knott. Had gone up £65 from last year, but got them to knock £25 off so £345 fully comp with the wife on. Thanks." elevensies, Z4 Forum
  4. So, we signed up to the TrustPilot Review site and started getting client feedback quite quickly. Thank you if you left a review of our service. Chris Knott Insurance now has a TrustPilot Score of 8.5/10 - not a bad start. There's always the need and desire to improve where we can though, so we value the feedback. Here are the 10 TrustPilot reviews we received in the last fortnight... "One of the best car insurance companies I have ever dealt with. Always very competitive and can mirror no claims too for a 2nd car (even if that's insured via another company). Highly recommended." Rich Baxter, Trustpilot "Delighted. Warm, friendly service. Made it all very easy. Excellent price." Nicholas Taylor, Trustpilot "Friendliest service ever from a car insurance company, highly recommended!" Anupama Rai, Trustpilot "Top marks to Chris Knott! Easy to get through to speak to someone. Better cover and cheaper premium that previous insurer!" Andy, Trustpilot "Exemplary. The lady I spoke to went out of her way to find me the best quote possible. Exemplary customer experience, she did a wonderful job." James Barrett, Trustpilot "Very efficient, helpful and gave a good insurance quote." Eunice Crickmar, Trustpilot "Couldn't have been more helpful, would definitely recommend. Very competitive pricing also." Mr Cullen, Trustpilot "Very helpful and a good price." Malcolm Mingay, TrustPilot "I like it so much. Excellent." Ismail Kasujee, Trustpilot "Changed one car and house contents policies to Chris Knott recently. Already had one car insured with them. Quick to answer the phone, easy to deal with and efficient in sending out documents. Oh - and good prices too !!"

  5. Just to remind you of your chance to WIN a £250 Amazon Voucher if you request a Chris Knott Car quote before the end of this month. Good news for us and you is that we've already reached 37.3% of November's new business target after just the first 4 working days of the month! Thanks if you're one of those who've taken out Chris Knott cover. It's good news for you because it means we're obviously giving great quotes at the moment - if your car insurance is due in the coming weeks make sure you include us in the mix and see just how much you can save through the club/forum scheme. We like modern/classic/standard/modified cars, especially where you're a member of a group such as a car club or enthusiast's forum. Please give us a call on 0800 917 2274 - it's always better if you can call us when you're ready for a quote - or if it's more convenient for you please complete callback details using our online Quote Request Form. best, Nick ******** Recent Testimonials More feedback about the Chris Knott savings, service and support: "Certainly my experience with CK has been extremely positive both with initial quotes and purchase and the following calls to add new mods. Only one of the 7-8 calls I gave them in a 3 month period ever resulted in a charge for adding new mods too. Although you really don't know til you have to make a claim they certainly work hard for your custom from my point of view." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "I just signed up this month through this club. Excellent quote with loads of extras and very low interest on monthly payments. I'm well pleased." NerysGT, GT86 Owners Club "I've been with Chris Knott for quite a few years including both the XE and the previous XF, plus my other runabouts. Also insured modified cars with them in the past with no hassle. Got my gap insurance through CKI as it was a lot cheaper than Jaguar's own quote and others, too. They've always been the best for service, speed and price especially if I advise them of other quotes elsewhere. To be honest, you should expect to have to barter a little with insurance each year. It doesn't take much time or effort." Pete McK, JagInfo "I'm with CKI and I find the service great, yes I get the renewal quote, I have a quick look online to compare and if I find cheaper with a 'recognised' insurer I would be prepared to use, I then call and let them know. They have always managed to equal or better the quote. Ultimately you pay your money and take your choice...I think I would rather be with a broker/insurer with a good reputation." dolphinfriendly, JagInfo ********
  6. Choosing your own repairer. Hi, I was contacted recently by one of the clubs we work with. They were concerned about the issue of 'approved repairers' and they wanted to know what our insurer partners' stance would be. Clearly, most car club members wouldn't want just anyone repairing their pride & joy - you probably have a preferred bodyshop in mind already as you're reading this. And this is where the issue lies. If you have an accident and want to use your preferred bodyshop over the insurer's approved repairer, can you do it without penalty? We've heard that some insurers make it difficult by doubling the excess or not using genuine OEM parts. That's not what you want! I checked with our main insurers and they are very accommodating. They recognise that car enthusiasts like you will be more interested in who the repairer is and whether any parts are pattern or genuine. So I'm pleased to confirm that you are able to request that your preferred bodyshop is used. Where there's no reason not to use them i.e. they are not majorly uncompetitive, the insurers on our panel will be happy to accommodate your request. There will be NO increased excess and, wherever possible, the use of genuine parts will be approved. The only slight downside when you choose your own garage is that the insurers can't control whether your repairer has a courtesy car available. But I guess for many of you your club car is not your main vehicle and if that is a problem it's still possible they will have one available for you - it just can't be guaranteed by your insurer. If you like the sound of having the freedom to choose your own repairer please call us for your car insurance quote on 0800 917 2274. And don't forget, if you request your quote before 30/11 you'll be in with a chance to WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas, courtesy of the Chris Knott 'Awesome Autumn' Prize Draw. best, Nick ************** Recent Testimonials "I have been with Chris Knott for a few years now and no one can touch them or get close to what I'm quoted by these guys. Top quality can't recommend them enough." gearinator, RoverTech "Thumbs up for Chris Knott. New policy for my returning R32 (collecting tomorrow!) and a great renewal. 20% cheaper than G********* for identical cover. Very pleasant to deal with so a thank you to Kim on the phone today." VED, R32 Owners Club "Have used Chris Knott the last 5 years. Superb service and always the cheapest rate around." Notleks, Seat Cupra forum **************

I would thoroughly recommend this cover for anyone thinking about it. The service provided far exceeds the cost and is inexpensive peace of mind." lyserman, Mercedes-Benz Owner forum

  13. So, 3 cool things I need to let you know about before I can go on holiday tomorrow... 1. Platinum Supercar Blast plus High-Speed Passenger Ride or Photo - yep, we're running a competition for August. Just ask us to quote for your car insurance this month to gain automatic entry in our draw to win a race track drive in your choice of 6 new supercars at one of 8 track locations nationwide. We'll pick a winner in early September. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 2. Our Virtual Show & Shine on social media continues (see separate thread). We're inviting all members to post pics of your shiny cars on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. You need to tag us, tag your club and use the hashtag #ShowShine2017 to qualify. We're offering a prize for the best pic - an Auto Finesse Detailing Kit - 14 items of high quality car cleaning product worth £156. LINKS: https://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns | https://www.twitter.com/ChrisKnottIns 3. A reminder about GAP Cover from Chris Knott - this is our combined RTI/Finance GAP cover which is significantly cheaper than that offered by car dealers when you buy a car. Check out our cover which fixes your new/nearly-new car's invoice value for 3 years after purchase, meaning you get a better payout in the event of a total loss incident. It'll give you the difference between your motor insurer's payout and the original invoice price or any outstanding finance - whichever is the greater amount - to make sure you can start again, wiping out depreciation. Have a look, get a quote, or buy online, at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP. Thanks for reading and I'll see you in a fortnight - a greek beach beckons! best, Nick Little bit of feedback: "Matched my previous quote but with a lot more extras free - spot on and great staff." t500tty, MPS Owners Club "Matched another quote but benefits were loads better than other option." Kwackadave, MPS Owners "Been with Chris Knott for about 3 years (been with them for various cars over the years, never had a problem)." Dennis, FocusSTOC
  14. Hi, I thought you'd be interested in this even if your car insurance isn't due just yet but especially if it is! There's some bad news but there's also some relief at the end... The bad news According to an industry report last week, Comprehensive car insurance premiums are now at their highest levels since 2010. The report reveals that the average premium rose to £847 during Q2 of 2017. That's an increase of £66 or 8.4% across the last quarter and £132 or 18.5% across the last 12 months. The report cites 4 main reasons: 1) the increase in Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), which has been going up since July 2015 and now sits at 12%, 2) the marked reduction in the Ogden discount rate for personal injury awards, 3) good old Brexit - insurers are seeing increases in the cost of vehicle repairs, fuelled by Brexit’s impact on car part prices, and 4) greater repair complexity as the level of expensive technology in vehicles increases. The report claims there's no evidence to suggest the increases are going to abate. A £1,000 average premium is still on the horizon but is getting closer. There's some good news though... Chris Knott's average new policy premium is just £405 - less than half the national average according to the report. This is also a much shallower increase across the last year - only £14 (3.6%) and still bucking the trend. As a happy client recently said "This is my third year with @ChrisKnottIns and every year they beat all my other quotes for both cars that are modded. Many thanks again and keep up the good work and the prices down!" carcall, Audi-Sport forum Please give us a call for a quote to access these lower average rates for club members. You'll need to mention this forum to gain access to our 'Clubs & Enthusiasts scheme'. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 ONLINE: Visit https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote to request a call back. ***************** Feedback about our clubs and enthusiasts offering: "Well Chris Knott's has come good again - this is my 3rd year with them now this year. They beat all other quotes I was getting without even trying." Rusty2009, Astra J/GTC OC "Another customer today. Not entirely new as insured a few Alfas with you many years ago. Good price, friendly chat with Ian. Not convinced about the need to supply driving licence check code as never had to do that before, nothing to hide but guess it's to flush out some that have." gavp, BabyBMW forum "Hi Guys, just purchased my first policy from you - beat my renewal with AXA of £845, now I'm paying £760. Happy motoring. Easy, quick and competitive ." Vrs_Maj, VWAudi Forum
  15. Do you want the good news or the bad news?

    The emphasis is on average, welshpug. There'll be clients paying much less and clients paying much more - all dependent on their own circumstances. Insurance has certainly increasingly become more sophisticated to respond to market forces and changes though.

  17. Cover for other road rallies - Mongol Rally

    Sorry, no they can't help - mostly because of the countries you'll be passing through. If there's a group of you who want cover for the event (and even the event organisers for the participants) there's another avenue to explore. best, Nick
  18. Cover for other road rallies - Mongol Rally

    Just consulting one of the insurers now to see whether this fits their appetite. N
  19. Hi, thanks for thinking of us. Yes it is a bit early I'm afraid. We can quote you about 30 days ahead of renewal. We'll diary it and call you nearer the time if that's OK. best, Nick
  20. NEW CHRIS KNOTT PRIZE DRAW: Silverstone F1 Grandstand Tickets x2 Hi, I'm excited to reveal another prize competition from Chris Knott... one that's for new AND existing customers We consulted the members of all the car clubs and forums we work with when selecting the prize for Chris Knott's 2017 Spring Prize Draw. So, the members have spoken - request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote before close of play on Wednesday 31st May for your chance to WIN 2x grandstand tickets at the 2017 Silverstone F1 Grand Prix. All you have to do is ask us for a quote and you'll automatically be entered for our draw to win this fantastic prize (worth over £500). Of course, we're hoping to win something too - you as a new customer! You don't have to purchase cover in order to qualify for the draw, just receive a quote. If our cover, service and price stack up it makes sense for you to switch to the car enthusiasts' specialist. We can quote about 30 days in advance of your renewal so even if your car insurance isn't due until late June you can still obtain a quote before the deadline. The GP tickets naturally cover all the events of Race Day - Sunday 16th July 2017 - and we've thrown-in circuit parking for one vehicle too. HOW TO ENTER...

I used to work in the Insurance industry, but they never achieved service levels like this." kentphil1, Briskoda "Saved about £180 on mine and £35 for my wife, both with superior cover to Admiral and lower excess!" Robbijay, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I work in retail and so realise people are quick to criticise and lack in praise when a job is done well. I'd like to say how helpful Daryl White was in renewing my car insurance policy. Within 25 minutes he'd reviewed a quote, called me back, adjusted it and sent new documents! Thoroughly happy with the service I've received, both on this occasion, a previous call on Monday (don't recall the gent's name, sorry) and with yourselves in general, this is exactly how you retain customers!" Rob Harper, Micra Sports Club

Thumbs up from me a happy customer for the year." hopz121, Z4 Forum "Superb service, more than fair prices after a haggle and its lovely to talk to a person in this country... Been with them about 10 years looking after most of our insurance!" Nick Walton, Multipla Owners Club "Well that's me signed up for another year. Nobody could get close this year, well done CK." riven1962, C4 Owners Club "I was involved in a no fault accident last year and expected my renewal to go up to stupid money, even though it wasn't my fault. Was really surprised with the quote and have now renewed for another year. Great service received, hope to be with you for many years to come. Cheers." ChrisG, Audi-Sport.net "Quick and easy Insurance. Just renewed my annual insurance and was fed up with premiums increasing each year so I rang Chris Knott. Service was easy and quick and they managed to reduce my premium compared to other companies. Docs arrived on e-mail very quickly and once I had paid and provided proof of current NCB I had a nice tag to attach to my car keys so if they are lost they can be returned swiftly."

  22. Hi, I thought some of you might like to see this interesting vid featuring one of the insurers we use to underwrite the club's car insurance scheme - ERS. Gumball 3000 organisers were looking for a specialist insurer to underwrite this year's event - a motor risk that includes Saudi princes, oligarchs and celebrities, driving prestige cars and imported vehicles worth over £30 million on a 3,000 mile journey through 10 countries. Most insurers ran a mile. ERS got under the skin of one of the world's most unique motor risks to underwrite the Gumball 3000 rally. You'll see Chris Knott has partnered with insurers who, like us, know what they're doing when it comes to assessing motor risks, are proper car enthusiasts and take great effort to understand the needs of those they're covering. ERS has long respected the work we're doing with car club members and will help us to win your business when you ask us to quote for your car at the next renewal. Please give us a call in the mix when searching for quotes and we'll help you find the best insurance deal this year.

"I just wanted to send you a message to say many thanks to CK Insurance and Tabitha especially who dealt with my initial query and quotation. Today I have taken out my car insurance with yourselves and it was a nice experience all-round. Tabitha was professional and easy to speak to and answered all the questions I had relating to the cover. I'll definitely recommend others to try you for a quote. You saved me over £375 compared to my renewal quote with *******, and now a chance of F1 tickets! Superb." ZakR, BabyBMW forum "Just saved £210 on my 9-5 and £167 on my 9-3 Many thanks Chris Knott." zagato, UKSaabs forum "My last insurance wouldn't cover brake or suspension mods even though they would make the car handle better, but would insure exhaust and air intakes, which sort of add more performance. Anyway, I found Chris Knott were best for me. Club Sponsor." Dan France-Athayde, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club UK "Just called up for a quote. Doing it all by phone is beautifully antiquated. However, there was a refreshing degree of honesty with the process. In my case they COULD match any sensible quote and were honest that if I wanted the bare minimum I might be able to get it marginally cheaper but highlighted the coverage differences. The breakdown cover similarly has some pretty good terms for the price. Waiting on my old insurer (£650 more expensive) to post out the paperwork." Cyber_hawk, Z4 Forum "I have my 480 on classic car insurance through Chris Knott this year; a better package than the previous one I had through ****** **** (in particular the insurance company in question is UK based and well known, as against Gibraltar based and completely unknown to me) and significantly cheaper. And I was very impressed with the service!" dcw, Volvo Owners Club
