Hi Ethan

He told me this morning he's going through the recent quotes received. The problem is that the snow affected staffing levels considerably but we're back to normal more or less now.

I know the phones have been busy this morning though. Keep trying and if you have no joy, please pm me your number & i'll get someone to ring you.

STOP PRESS! I've just asked him and he has no email record for you! Can you resend it now?

Well, got a fairly decent quote (in comparison) most companies have quoted over £1000 and you guys managed to quote £680 still a little more than my reduced £650 renewal but i've not been happy with my insurers so may just switch anyway...

Thanks to all who have rung us for a quote.

We have just calculated the figures for 2009 and they show that the average recorded saving we made for our new customers last year was 12.5% off their BEST quote so it's certainly worth a call!

We consistently average over 80% renewal retention as well (December was 84%!) so people are happy at renewal as well!

0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 until 1/3/10 then 01424 200477.

Not sure if you can help Tim, I'm currently insured with you on (on a non BMW) and am looking to buy an E39 540i. I've called the offices and was told approx 1.5k which is over double what I pay at the moment, I've since put the details in to some comparison sites and had quotes of less than 1/2 that.

I'm 27, 4 years NCB, no convictions, only quirk I can think of is that I use the car for business.

I'm not having a go in anyway, I'd rather stay with CK if possible, I've been really impressed so far, I was just wondering if something could have been missed.

Cheers

Ed

I would say from what i have read about them on other forums, our policies are certainly not like for like with Swift!

Hi Ed

It could be due to the experience factor? Normally, you have to have experience of driving similar cars, or same bhp.

Please feel free to pm me your name & postcode and i'll check for you.

I just had a quote for the wife on ours. Cheapest was £300 for a BMW. £210 with mod i have been quoted. She has insure a corsa 1.2 a Ford Focus ST170, then a Ford Focus RS 240 bhp, Then a Shogan 2.5 , the a Ford Feista ST, then the BMW. The RS was way quickier than the BMW. Is insurance just picked out of the air the a quote or is it just the badge on the front.

5th Floor

Cavendish House

Breeds Place

Hastings

East Sussex

Our quote line number won’t change – you can still call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 for your no-obligation quote – remember to quote your unique club/forum code (mobiles can call 01424 200477).

As well as new premises, we have recently invested heavily in technology that will reduce the amount of paper we use and store. The overall aim of these improvements is to enhance operations and therefore offer members an even better service.

Hi

Although on average nearly 1 in every 2 people who get a quote from us take out a policy, the number of people who ring us is quite low compared to the amount of registered users.

I realise that there are certain age and postcode limitations as stated in my original post in this thread (which are there to protect the scheme for the majority due to the high claims loss ratio's within these categories) but I would encourage you to give us a call if your car (or home, breakdown) insurance is due.

Our reputation hopefully precedes us based on the amount of grateful comments received.

Please ring free on 0800 917 2274 (mobiles can ring 01424 200477) and just state the club reference number found in my signature below, or in my original post.

think one problem maybe the insistence of driven similar powered vehicles. I am 43 and have drive highpowered standard and modified cars for 20+ years - and your policy excludes me because I should have owned an M5 for a year before insuring it with you - to be honest I will stay with the company that treats me right from the start not just hop to your policy because you now accept me ?

sorry if it sounds harsh - but its kind of insulting to be asked about ownership and driving ability as though I am a kid getting his first gti.

not had a claim, speeding or even parking ticket for 20 years - think that says alot to me.

thanks David

The difficulty is that people who haven't the experience are crashing their cars.

If any risk profile is a loss leader, I can understand the insurers reasons why they don't want to offer cover.

Personally, if you knew that you were going to lose money when taking on a case, then I think most companies would do the same.

I’ve been asked quite a few times recently how to get an insurance quote from us.

All you need to do is either ring the office please on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 if calling from a mobile) – Mon-Fri 9am till 5pm, Sat 9am till noon and state the club name and if possible the reference number (found in my signature below) - or use the email quote facility found on this forum.

I don’t personally do the quotes as I spend a lot of my time travelling the country on business and work from home also.

We have a specialist team who will be able to help you.

Also, please don't forget the popular car breakdown cover at £54.50 for full UK cover – please see http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottBreakdown.pdf and the instant, online travel insurance quotes - http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/travel

And if you need home insurance then http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottHomeInsurance.pdf!

Thanks.

Just a quick apology for those who tried our New Business team on Monday but didn't get through.

We were absolutely manic - good for business - but it didn't help those who couldn't get a quote.

(Claims & Customer Service depts were unaffected).

We are back to normal now so please ring us if you're car/home/car breakdown insurance is due in July.
