T5D5.org INSURANCE with CHRIS KNOTT : : 0800 917 2274

32 posts in this topic

Please remember to include Chris Knott in the mix when searching for a car insurance quote.

 

For good drivers, we can often beat your best alternative quote when we know what it is - dis-regarding what the system says we should be quoting. That's because our insurer partners trust us and allow us to quote what we need to to get them good quality business.

 

This year so far we're signing up even more forum members than last year so we must be doing something right!

 

"Ian insured with Chris Knott a couple of weeks ago and reported the best deal he's ever had, thanks guys" said Alfanutz admin, Zender156.

 

Call Chris Knotts and we'll find you the best deal based on your individual needs. Alternatively, you can complete brief details at http://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and we'll call you back.

 

High for the industry, 78% of Chris Knott's clients are renewing this year too, which means we are pretty consistent in our pricing - not looking to change the rate if the risk is the same as last year.

 

It's true there have been a few comments regarding the length of time it takes for us to answer calls. But we're pleased to say that we've listened to feedback and have now made it easier for you to get through to the quoting team. They were previously handling other types of enquiry but we're now fielding those enquiries to a separate, dedicated team. You should notice a great improvement.

 

Pick up the phone today if you're due in the next few weeks and see how much Chris Knott can save you.

UPDATE: Relaxation in CHRIS KNOTT age and experience criteria

 

There's really good news for many of the members we've previously had to turn down - we've kept on the case with insurers and have been able to negotiate a relaxation of the age & experience criteria for the club scheme.

 

These are the changes from the old requirements where we had them on certain models:

 

OLD RULES - 25+ with 12 months' experience of the car or one of similar performance.

NEW RULES - 25+ with 6 months' experience.

 

OLD RULES - 25+ with 24 months' experience or 30+ if only 12 months' experience.

NEW RULES - 25+ with 12 months' experience.

 

OLD RULES - 30+ with 12 months' experience.

NEW RULES - 28+ with 12 months' experience.

 

There's still some way to go but it's good that we at least have these concessions.

 

Remember to include us in the mix when looking around for quotes. We're still signing up 40% of quotes offered - there won't be many in the industry that can say that.

 

To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott please call FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 - cheaper for mobiles) and quote this forum's unique code.

UPDATE: a discount is not just for Christmas

 

This news just in from our Motor Manager, Paul…

 
One of our major insurer partners has offered us an extra 15% off their rates. They’ve seen how much better car club/forum members generally are as drivers and they want to attract you. We’ve said it before but if price has been the only barrier to you switching to the Chris Knott scheme, you need to pick up the phone and let us remove that barrier.
 
At the moment we’re signing up about 50% of the quotes offered to car club/forum members but with this extra discount we’ll be able to beat even more members’ best quotes.
 
You’ll remember the great success of Chris Knott’s 2012 END OF YEAR SALE? – well this could outstrip even that. This is a DISCOUNT IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS but seeing as there’s NO END DATE in sight, it will even benefit those whose renewal isn’t due for a few months.
 
Here’s what car club members have said about Chris Knott in the last couple of weeks (genuine quotes with usernames supplied) and the extra discount wasn’t even in play then:
 
”Purchased an MPS 6 yesterday and Chris Knott Insurance was by far the cheapest on both cars (MPS was £540 - 23 years old, 2 years no claims) and the service was the best from any company ever. Keep up the good work!” MeetKane, MPS Owners Club
 
“Chris Knott Insurance got it well below what the competition offered!” TurboPete, Mercedes-Benz Owners Association
 
”Just signed up with Chris Knott. Great price £250 fully comp on a 2009 GP Abarth, 3 points, 40 years old, 5 years NCB protected, legal, key cover, £250 excess. Happy chappy!” Martwho, Fiat Forum
 
”I don't normally find such good deals, so I don't normally shout about them, but Chris Knott Insurance gave me a quote which was more than £300 BETTER than the first one I had elsewhere, and nearly £40 better than anyone else could do. Top stuff.” MarkBT, Briskoda.net
 
”Just insured my Grand with Chris Knott. Helpful, non-pushy sales staff and it saved me almost £200. A very happy customer :) Paule, C-Max Owners Club
 
”Talk about quoting me a price that nearly made me faint - doubt I will be doing anymore research. Expect a call after payday :D. I spoke to a guy called Paul - finally an insurance guy that knows what he’s talking about.” Sternritter, MPS Owners Club
 
As long as you meet our usual criteria, we expect many more members to have this kind of experience with Chris Knott Insurance. Ask us to quote today.
 
Call Chris Knott Insurance on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477) – it’s our job to save you as much as we can on your car insurance while giving you good quality cover and sound insurance advice.

UPDATE: VIP SILVERSTONE TOUR FOR TWO courtesy of Chris Knott Insurance...

 

I asked my bosses if they'd offer a prize draw in conjunction with the above offer to finish off the year (which is usually a quieter time for us) and they've agreed.

 

So anyone who gets a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote between now and January 31st 2014 will automatically be entered into our prize draw for a VIP Tour of Silverstone for two.

 

Prize Details

You'll go behind the scenes of the world-famous stadium to discover areas that the public aren't normally allowed to see. You'll access buildings that are reserved for the F1 teams, their sponsors and race officials, including Race Control where you'll enjoy a spectacular view of the finish line. Enter the Drive Workshop, where you’ll find a range of iconic vehicles, including Ferraris, Porsches, and a fleet of single-seater race cars being prepared for the track. Then it’s onto the winner’s podium for a must-have photo opportunity before rounding off your visit with a guided tour of the famous Grand Prix circuit.

 

How To Enter

All you have to do is give us a call for a new quote before January 31st 2014. We're currently signing up 50% of all quotes offered which means we're more competitive now than we've ever been. You could SAVE MONEY on your car insurance and WIN the VIP Tour of Silverstone.

 

Please call Chris Knotts if your current cover expires in the coming couple of months. Even if you're not due until February you can still get your quote before January 31st to qualify.

 

Call FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) and find out just how much you could save by switching to Chris Knott Car Insurance.

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT now quoting M, L, OL and SK1-12 postcodes

 

If you live in any of the above postcodes you'll know that it used to be difficult for us to quote you under the club insurance scheme.

 

The good news is that insurers have agreed to open up these postcodes to us.

 

Some of the very risky areas are still not available to us (in reality there aren't many of those) but we can quote competitively on the rest. There are sometimes overnight parking requirements attached to the quotes but this is a big step forward in the right direction.

 

Regardless of your postcode area, if you've not yet given the Chris Knott Insurance club scheme a try please do so or if you have tried us in the past and we couldn't help you - chances are that we'll be able to help now.

 

Please call FREE on 0800 917 2274 and put us to the test.

 

Here's what Kris, a member of STdriveRS forum, said recently:

"Guys, definitely worth calling Chris Knott, my renewal with Esure was £273, which I was extremely pleased with. Contacted both Chris Knott and [a competitor] because of this forum. Unfortunately [the competitor] said they couldn't beat it, and when CKI called me back I wasn't expecting them to either and even told the lovely lady on the phone this, but we still went through all the details. Then I waited 2 minutes whilst she got me the price, when she came back on I was expecting "sorry, but...", but no, was pleasantly surprised to hear "we can do it for £240". Absolutely stoked, and when my wife's insurance is up for renewal in the next few weeks CKI will be my first port of call too." Krisby, STdriveRS.co.uk

UPDATE: CAR INSURANCE WISH LIST

 

Hi,

 

In the Chris Knott office recently we were considering whether there were things the industry could do better. We were also contemplating what we as a business could do better.

 

Being that we're coming to the end of the year and are starting our planning for our new financial year which begins 1st Feb it's a good time to ask this question of you.

 

It's incredibly important for us to get members' views in all this as we seek to provide the things you want and need. Interactivity is the benefit of being involved with a forum.

 

Of course, a competitive price is always going to feature highly among the responses - we know that and we've responded as the market has softened in recent months. But we're also keen to find out if there are things besides the price that matter to you from a cover or service point of view that would be useful.

 

We'll look at all your suggestions - some of them we'll be able to arrange straight away, others will take longer to organise, maybe involving insurers, and some will not be possible at all but we'll do all we can to respond to the sensible suggestions.

 

To make sure we're not just feeding our competitors ideas, please PM me on here or drop us a message on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns) or Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/Chris_Knott_Ins).

 

We look forward to hearing from you but please maintain the helpful, collaborative spirit in which this is intended.

How about responding to post number 6 on this thread? http://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=192515

 

You're very quick to suggest your staff may need retraining when people have an issue, but it is starting to come across as the person posting these messages on behalf of Chris Knott, believe they are infallible!

 

You had a postcode ban! Was there anything you could have done differently, who knows as to be honest, your attitude to some of the posters asking questions about it stank. The postcode ban was lifted and there was only silence until you were prompted to answer a question about. Your postings and attitude on forums were criticised and again, only silence!

This feedback posted just today on one of the forums: "Would just like to say a big thank you to Chris Knott - sponsor on here - for giving me a very decent insurance policy. Had an accident in December and found Chris to be very understanding and really helped me out. Bettered my quote by about £30-£40, lowered my excess and got all this with added courtesy car, legal cover and car hire purchase. Was very pleased to also hear the very small interest rate for paying monthly! A big thank you and hopefully I'll get my NCB bonus back so that my premium is even lower!" Wardy, Briskoda.net

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT insurance scheme beats many others

 

Hi,

We've had some great testimonials in the last few weeks that support our money-saving ability. I was amazed when our Motor Manager said we've almost beaten our February target after just 2 weeks of the month! The Chris Knott scheme is growing in popularity amongst car club/forum members.

 

TESTIMONIALS:

"Had a quote at the weekend which was over £30 cheaper than the best quote from elsewhere, another happy customer." lazybones51, Clubcento

 

"Big thanks to Kim at CKI for saving me nearly £500 on my Car Insurance. Still Fully Comp but with less excess." Ghost, C-Max Owners Club

 

"Would just like to say a big thank you to Chris Knott - sponsor on here and also Paul from Chris Knott for giving me a very decent insurance policy. Had an accident in December and found Chris Knott to be very understanding and really helped me out. Bettered my quote by about £30-£40, lowered my excess and got all this with added courtesy car, legal cover and car hire purchase. Was very pleased to also hear the very small interest rate for paying monthly! A big thank you." Wardy, Briskoda.net

 

"I can highly recommend these folks, the quotes blew away my renewals by miles. Got a steal on the breakdown cover too. Cheers." duemila, AlfaOwner.com

 

"Went ahead with my insurance today with Chris Knott Insurance. Undercut my existing renewal quote by 10% over the phone before I could even approach the subject myself! Mod-friendly and polite service (Kim).  Many Thanks guys." Av4nt, Audi-Sport.net

Hi, we'd like to thank the members of the car club/forum community for their support of our special car insurance scheme. So far this year we've been amazed at the increase in members using our service to find the best deal - each month we've beaten our growth targets by a significant amount and that's down to you.

 

On a slightly different note, we do try to monitor the forums and keep up to date with any insurance questions out there but if we've missed any please feel free to flag them up again by PM and we'll make sure you get a response.

 

Thanks again for your custom and don't forget to try us this year when your renewal falls due. We won't be able to help everyone but we'll do all we can for as many of you as we can.

REMINDER: Chris Knott discounted Car Insurance scheme

 

Chris Knott has launched a couple of online products for members in the last month (Breakdown and GAP) and I've been posting on here about them. So I thought it would be good to now go back and remind you of our core offering which is, of course, our special car insurance scheme.

 

As car club members you generally look after your cars better than the average driver. So the insurers on our panel allow us to be a bit more flexible in our pricing and respond to your best alternative quote rather than the rigid computer calculation to win the business.

 

The result is that you ultimately get a lower quote than you would otherwise.

 

And, as we're signing up 44% of all club enquiries on average, this clearly works to everyone's benefit.

 

MAIN CHRIS KNOTT PRODUCTS available to members:

 

*  Car Insurance / Multi-car Insurance (extra discounts for more than one car) - phone for a quote

*  Breakdown Cover - by phone or quote and buy online

*  GAP Insurance - by phone or quote and buy online

 

OTHER USEFUL PRODUCTS FROM CHRIS KNOTT if you need them:

 

*  Home Insurance - extra £20 OFF our best home quote if you have 1 car with us / extra £50 OFF our best home quote if you have 2+ cars with us.

*  Commercial Vehicle and Fleet Insurance

*  Business Insurance

 

CHRIS KNOTT QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - Please mention this forum to receive the full benefit (or call 01424 200477 - cheaper for mobiles).

 

********************************************************

FEEDBACK FROM CAR ENTHUSIASTS IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS...

 

"Just had a nice chat with Tabitha getting a quote for this year, after being with main stream insurers up until now. As I'm looking at some modifications I wanted a flexible policy and CKI came up trumps. What a brilliant deal, massively cheaper than anyone else, but with more cover. Couldn't be happier!" Dunk Veloce, Alfa Romeo OC

 

"This year got quoted £840 from admiral and then £480 for Chris Knott. Guess who I chose." JackW, Civinfo.com

 

"Well what can I say? The guys at Chris Knott are epic. Had my renewal quote from my previous provider. Started calling the insurance companies on here. Most of them only beat the renewal quote by a few £££. Called Chris Knott insurance and they smashed the price! Very happy with the price nearly £200 off the renewal quote. Big thanks Chris Knott and a huge thanks to Kim and Rebecca." klashinikov, Type R Owners forum.

 

"Just made changes to my policy and declared the new modifications, couldn't be any easier or helpful. Happy to be with Chris Knotts, couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks again!" Danny Piercy, Facebook

Hi, just to let you know I'm away for a couple of weeks so I won't be able to reply to posts or PMs but I'll be back on 18/8.

 

In the meantime, please continue to call us for quotes. We've had a brilliant July and it's all down to car club/forum members like you picking up the phone.

 

Online v Phone

We know many of you like to get your quotes online but we're able to beat the price comparison sites if we can talk to you - we get a better feel for you over the phone and we can ask different questions to manually decide whether you're a good risk to take on and at what price. This benefits you far more than a simple "computer says yes, computer says no" scenario.

 

Pick up the phone and ask us to quote (Tel: 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477) - you'll be glad you did when we beat your best quote (which we currently do for almost 50% of all callers).

 

Multi-car households

If you have multi-car policies with the likes of Admiral, we can compete with these too. Those companies typically only have their own products to sell. We have access to a whole range of insurers and can pick the most appropriate one for each individual vehicle but still give you the benefit of a single renewal date and a single point of contact - call Chris Knott Insurance for your quote today.

 

Past experience

It may be that you've asked us to quote in the past and we weren't able to help. If that's the case it's definitely worth calling us again when your renewal falls due. With postcode relaxations and changes to driver age requirements in the last 12 months there's a good chance that we've dealt with whatever was preventing us from winning your business last time. And if price was the issue, please don't miss out on this one thing - we currently have insurers queuing up at our door for good, clean, car club/forum member drivers and they'll support us in doing whatever it takes to win the right cases.

 

You all know what insurance is like. Today's low rates may start to rise again tomorrow. Let's both make hay while the sun shines!

 

Give us a call on 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 and mention this forum to see how much we can save you.

 

See you in a couple of weeks.

 

best regards,

Nick

"Just want to say a huge thanks for the service you guys have provided so far. The exhaust mod has been added free of charge. Really pleased with how you operate." raymondbowon, FocusSTOC.com

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT MONTHLY PRIZE DRAW

 

Hi, I'm back from hols and glad to be available to answer queries again.

 

July turned out to be a really good month so thanks for supporting Chris Knotts if you called for a quote.

 

Remember that if you've been quoted more than £200 you should call us as there's a good chance we can beat it.

 

**CHRIS KNOTT MONTHLY PRIZE DRAW to see the year out**

Each month until the end of the year we'll be offering a different prize in our monthly draw. So, ask us for a car quote during September and you could WIN a Karcher Pressure Washer - perfect for doing a good job of cleaning your car (or driveway/patio/decking, etc).

 

Simply call us on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 for your free quote and we'll automatically enter you for the draw.

 

We hope this will encourage more of you to at least give us a try when your renewal falls due. Our rates are currently the best that they've been for a long time and we know they have to speak for themselves but this is an extra incentive for you to pick up the phone.

 

We look forward to talking to you.

 

best,

Nick

It has come to our attention that some forum members think we are linked with one of the other insurance providers out there because a name similar to ours appears against transactions on their bank statements.

 

So we wanted to make it clear, for the avoidance of doubt, that there is NO commercial relationship between us and any of the other providers on car club forums. 

 

Actually there is good natured competition between all the providers on the forums and we come across each other often. But we are all completely separate, so you should always call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote and shouldn't think you've heard our quote just because you've called one of the other firms.

 

Chris Knott's quoteline is 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477. Please quote your unique club code to make sure you receive the full benefit.

Three reasons to call Chris Knott this December...

 

1. HIGHLY COMPETITIVE QUOTES

The club/forum scheme is going really well at the moment. We're helping more of you than ever before because insurers are giving their respected brokers more room to move on price. This means we can respond to some of the quotes we would have previously had to turn away as too cheap for the risk.

 

2. DECEMBER'S PRIZE DRAW

November's prize proved so popular that we're going to offer the same for December - a £100 Amazon Voucher.

 

Simply ask us to quote for a car we don't yet insure, during December, and we'll enter you for the draw to take place in early January.

 

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477

 

You can get quotes for January policies in December too, so please include Chris Knott Insurance in your quote search if you're due then - you could WIN a £100 Amazon Voucher.

 

3. YEAR-ROUND OFFER

If you're an existing Chris Knott client there's a permanent money-saving offer for you too:

 

Get your friends and family members to call us for a quote on their car insurance. When they go ahead with cover we'll give you £20 OFF your own renewal for each one. This is not just a Christmas offer - it runs all year round. There's no limit to the number of people you can refer or the amount that you can have credited to your own insurance account.

 

Ask your friends and family to quote reference RAF480 when they call and we'll sort the rest.

TESTIMONIALS

 

We're still coming up with the goods for club/forum members:

 

"Chris Knott just saved me £170 on renewal so I didn't bother phoning around anyone else. My premium went up year after year until I called Chris Knott last year. My renewal last year with Aviva went up £300, Chris Knott got me a renewal price £10 cheaper than what I was already paying on the current policy so saved £310 in total. And they kept me with Aviva. Chris Knott got me a deal with Aviva cheaper than Aviva could." sidibear, audi-sport.net

 

"Just to say a big thank you to Chris Knott Insurance. By far the best price and really easy to deal with. I also had to change details after having received the quote but it was no trouble for them at all. I had 1 year less no claims than I originally stated, but they honoured the same price! Legends. Thanks again." rick6, MPS Owners Club

 

"Called Chris Knott's today and saved 23% over my renewal quote from XXXXXX XXXX. Very pleased, my LHD import with modifications was no problem for the lady (Tabitha) on the phone. Great service, very pleased." SFIAC, ZRoadster forum

***UPDATE: 2015 with CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE***

 

Happy New Year to you all.

 

Thanks so much for your custom in 2014, especially in response to the Chris Knott Prize Draws at the tale end of the year. I'm pleased to announce that December's winner was Mrs D Woodfin from Bolton. She bagged herself a £100 Amazon Voucher and all she did was ask us for a quote.

 

During the early part of this year we're aiming to start negotiations with the companies on our insurer panel to alter the scheme access criteria, allowing us to quote competitively for even more car club/forum members. We'll keep you posted as things develop.

 

As things stand many car club/forum members are saving money every day but we'd obviously like more members to be able to benefit from calling Chris Knott Insurance. In just the last week we've signed up another 12 forums - forums who've heard good things about Chris Knott and want their members to be able to access great car insurance deals too.

 

If you'd like us to quote when your modified or standard car is due for renewal please call the Chris Knott Club Line on 0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 and mention this forum to receive the full benefit.

 

Remember, if we couldn't beat your quote before the reason may now have passed, especially if you were just a bit too young for the scheme when you called us. Please include us again in the mix this year.

 

best,

Nick

Testimonials received in the last month:

"Best quote, all signed up :)" logrunner, Juke Owners Group

 

"Thanks guys and a Happy New Year to you all too. As above thanks for another unbeatable renewal, cheers." Paul Truslove, Facebook

UPDATE: **Winners all round...**

 

£500 WINNER

Congratulations to Mr B Windeatt, a member of car club forum MG-Rover.org, who won our £500 competition last month. All he had to do was call for a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote to be entered into the draw. Now his cheque is on it's way.

 

WINNING QUOTES FOR MEMBERS

As for our special club car insurance scheme, this morning I asked our Motor Supervisor where we stood against this month's target. She reported that we're almost at 50% already after just the first week of the month's trading.

 

Thanks to everyone who is asking us to quote for their car insurance at the moment. Feedback has been coming in thick and fast. I normally post a few examples from recent days but this time there are so many that I'm having to choose a selection rather than all of them. It has really kicked off and I'm glad we're helping so many car club members to save money as well as providing good broker service.

 

Please call us if your car insurance is due soon and mention this forum to access the special car club member scheme and maybe we'll be your best option this year too.

 

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (01424 200477 for mobiles)

Feedback about Chris Knott Car Insurance from happy car club/forum members whose business we've won:

 

"I have just taken a policy a out with these guys and they beat my cheapest quote by 10% and may I say the service was top class. I personally was looked after by Kathy who was very helpful and polite. Can't recommend enough." YamYam, FiestaSTOC.com

 

"Looks like I'll be taking a policy through you guys. Far cheaper than what my renewal is through my current company!" Ant21, Astra Owners Network

 

"RS3 insurance time is just around the corner, so seeing as we insured the TT with them, thought I'd go to Chris Knott Insurance to see what they could do...... Emailed Nick yesterday, had a call today and went through everything, job done, they have literally halved what Admiral's renewal quote was. When the van is due in February I shall be calling them up for that too... It's nice to see an insurance specialist actually deliver a good service and save us money. Too many promise good rates on high performance cars but never seem to get close to 'normal' insurance companies quotes. They also gave me £20 off for already having a policy with them..... And being an Audi-Sport.net member....." Veneeringman, Audi-Sport.net

 

"They smashed my renewal and beat my cheapest quote. It saved me £232 (Jan). A good way towards taxing it for 12 months." PaulRS3, Audi-Sport.net

 

"Took an insurance policy out with you over the weekend. Really happy with the service and really chuffed with my quote. Cheapest out of everybody I tried. Thanks." AdamJonezy, Briskoda.net

 

"Just got my girlfriend's TT insured with you guys today - gave you a quote I'd got from Confused and you guys managed to beat it by over a £100 :thumbs: Girlfriend is a happy bunny :)" chirag1988, 350z-uk.com

 

"Could I just add Nick, that I had exceptional service by a lovely lady called Kathy, very polite and helped me with my questions regarding my quote this evening with a competitive price. Please pass on this feedback!" Dean, ClubPolo

Guess which clubs/forums feature in Chris Knott's Top 20...

 

Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working for the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK.

 

We've compiled our Top 20 clubs/forums for the first half of 2015. The results are based on a combination of the number of quotes requested by the club, the number of new policies sold and then the % of quotes converted.

 

If your club features it means you're more likely to save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote because you're very active with us.

 

If your club doesn't feature it's probably because the enquiry levels themselves are low - get asking us to quote and you could feature next time around!!

 

As car club members generally look after their cars better than the average driver, the insurers on our panel allow us to be a bit more flexible in our pricing and respond to your best alternative quote rather than a rigid computer calculation to win the business.

 

This is currently working best for members of these forums:

 

THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20

 

1.  Alfa Romeo Owners Club

2.  Volvo Owners Club

3.  Saab Owners Club

4.  Briskoda

5.  CIVINFO

6.  Z4 Forum

7.  Mercedes-Benz Owner

8.  Audi-Sport.net

9.  BabyBMW.net

10. MR2 Owners Club

 

11. Fiesta ST Owners Club

12. MPS Owners Club

13. UK Passats

14. MG-Rover.org

15. Focus ST Owners Club

16. Civic Type R Owners

17. VR6 Owners Club

18. AlfaOwner.com

19. UK Saabs

20. Astra Owners Network

 

 

Thanks if you've already asked us for a quote. If you haven't yet, please do call us when your renewal falls due and include us in the mix of companies you get your quotes from.

These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

 

"Just renewed mine again this week and it was cheaper than anywhere else I went to. Declared my mods too and changed my address with no cost. Brilliant." JackW, Civinfo

 

"Just spoke to a lovely lady called Kathy, and they got my quote down from £298 with Post Office to £200 all in. Money Supermarket were offering me £194 online, with a supposed £0 excess....via Esure/Sheila's Wheels. That I find hard to believe, and having been burnt before on these enticing offers (once they have you, they then load everything on - windscreen, legal, business use, etc). Kathy got me a great deal with what I wanted, £100 excess and all the other bits included!" jodonut99, Dacia Forum

 

"So far so good! Not only did they beat my renewal but they beat the lowest quote on the comparison website by a whopping £70. Saved over £200 on my renewal quote. Content of insurance seems great also. Hopefully I won't need to use them but hope all is well if I do! Thanks CK!" Watsona6, Briskoda

 

"Just insured my 530i with Chris Knott - they were £70 cheaper than my renewal cost from Admiral and beat the cheapest quote I could find anywhere else by £20, can't argue with that :) Kathy was very friendly and helpful on the phone and called back straight away when I was cut off by a thunder storm so I didn't have to go through all the menus and questions again, which was nice." lufbramatt, BMW 5 Series forum

 

"Just renewed my policy yesterday with CKI. Heres to another easy amd cheap 12 months" Jamie, Fiesta OC

 

"Big thanks to Rebecca at Chris Knott - having moved to an even more dodgy postcode my previous brokers wouldn't entertain renewing. Chris Knott matched me up to my previous insurers with the same cover as before. Excellent friendly service, and reminded me to get the rest of my documents sent in when I'd obviously forgotten!" Rebel Rebel, Volvo Performance Club UK

 

"Got my renewal from CKI at £800 which is cheaper than last year by £60. Shopped around online and got a quote for £640 so I thought I would have to leave CKI this year. A phone call to Milton and a few emails later he got back to me and said my insurance company will match the quote like for like for £640 aswell. All in all Milton just saved me £160. Calls centre are friendly and more than happy to help you and English based which is a big bonus. Here's to another year with @ChrisKnottIns :D:D:D" davidm5575, Fiesta OC

They say that if you wait long enough everything comes back into fashion. That's certainly what's happened with 0800 freephone numbers as, since 1st July, 0800 calls are now FREE on all mobiles as well as landlines.

 

We'll continue to advertise the Chris Knott geographic number (01424 200477) alongside our freephone number for a little while yet but you can start using our 0800 917 2274 number from your mobiles with immediate effect.

 

We look forward to your call if your car insurance is due for renewal soon.

 

You can use the same 0800 number for our Breakdown Cover, GAP Insurance and Home Insurance too.

 

best,

Nick

TESTIMONIALS

These guys called us and received great savings in the last few days:

 

"Year after year beaten all other quotes. This year managed to drop my renewal by nearly £150 and beating the competition! 5*" David A Dodgson, Facebook Review

 

"I'd like to take some time to thank Chris Knott Insurance for beating my renewal quote of £1554 by £150+. I've had my licence for over a year but didn't get insured straight away, so for 1 year's no claims around my postcode, that was a super saving. Even the choice of paying monthly was low, my original provider would have been in the 2k mark if I chose to pay monthly! Hopefully next year you will do the same and save me big £££. Thanks to Nick for setting this up :good:" Connolly3000, R32OC

 

"You guys just beat the cheapest quote with an insurer I've never heard of on GoCompare, with a decent named company and with my other half on the policy. Well pleased with that outcome. :)" scruffy_ Type R Owners

 

"3 years in a row now I've not had to move insurers." beckiejmc, Astra Owners Network

 

"I switched to them this year.. Beat all quotes I got plus offered more extras like 'Driving Other Cars'... hopefully same again next year" Thom89, Astra Owners Network

 

"I switched to you guys this year and you saved me over £300 compared to my renewal! Let alone the other quotes I had got." Ant21, Astra Owners Network

 

"Already have my car with CK, but wanted to see if I could get SWMBO's car cheaper when her renewal came around, CK beat it by £25. But then the mrs did some comparison sites and beat that by another £20. I really wanted her to go with CK, but thought "its already £45 less than her original renewal with her old company, the £25 off is probably as good as they can do".....but Ian had a look and managed to knock off a further £5 from the cheapest quote we found! :clap:  So that's 2 cars (and another friend) all with Chris Knott. Thanks for the great service guys!" robt100, Briskoda

UPDATE: a note about competitiveness

 

Looking at the YTD figures Chris Knott Insurance has won 38% of all new quotes offered during 2015. That's really good and means we're frequently beating the best rate that members can find anywhere else.

 

And, if you thought that was just a ploy to attract new clients and then hike the rates in year 2, you'd be wrong - we keep 82% of policies at renewal. This is because we try to offer consistent pricing (as long as there have been no claims or other changes during the year). We're all about trust and long-term relationships, not wildly fluctuating quotes.

 

Please give us a call if your insurance is due soon and we'll do all we can to find you the best deal - sometimes that involves using your best alternative quote to negotiate with the insurers who are vying for your business.

 

To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott you should call 0800 917 2274 (now FREE for mobile phones too).

 

If you call before the end of September we'll also enter you for our current prize draw to win £150 mods/parts/accessories of your choice - see our other posts for details.

 

best,

Nick

TESTIMONIALS

Feedback about Chris Knott's prices and service, gathered in just the last week...

 

"Just wanted to give a shout out to all the people at Chris Knotts, not only did they beat my renewal quote but also improved on the offerings, and that was including the fact my previous best had an extra 10% off for my dashcam! Top knotch service and an unbeatable price, thanks guys and gals!" spikedog, MPS Owners

 

"Well after the hunting and chatting to a few folk, then receiving my renewal quote from Sheila's Wheels which has mysteriously jumped up £100 without any mods declared. I called Chris Knott. Had a chat with the lovely Cathy and taking into consideration the mods that have and are being done got a quote of £200 less than Sheila's who were very concerned about the mods and really did not really understand the mod issue. Hastings jumped dramatically when I mentioned the mods especially the uprated front brakes going on next month so I dropped them out. All in all I have a much better policy, declared mods, better excess and other addon's for £440. Which when you consider my Coupe is parked on a London residential street at home is not bad." Shel, Hyundai Coupe OC

 

"Just changed my car and had a pleasant and effortless time on the phone doing it. As I spoke the lady was simultaneously emailing my new documents over. Premium should have gone up a bit but no charge, swapped my GAP insurance over to my new car as it had over two years to go and all for a modest £15 admin fee. Got off the phone with all new document printing out of my printer and a smile on my face as I was braced for spending out £100 or so. Highly recommend." dagdave, CMax OC

 

"I'm with Chris Knotts myself now since there's a fair chunk of mods on the car these days. Think it was Cathy I spoke to as well when I called, pleasant and no faffing around :) Well, no faffing at their end, I called back about 3-4x as kept remembering more mods." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe OC

 

"You beat my previous insurer by £200 with the modifications declared and so easy to deal with. Many thanks." Sherri Joyce, Facebook

 

"ALSO a HUGE thanks once again from me! Did a shop around with another company, they sent me [their] quote cheaper, Knott were sent this quote and matched (even beat it by £20), so this is the FIRST TIME in over 16+ yrs of driving I've ever paid for a policy in one go! Very happy again. Cheers guys." vwnutant, UKPassats

 

"Rang you up today and you beat my best quote so I insured through you. Thanks." Outofthi5world, Briskoda

According to the British Insurance Premium Index, car insurance premiums have again risen during the third quarter of 2015 - this time by 4.8%. The index quote has increased to £569 (a rise of nearly £26 over the three months ending 30th September).

 

I'm pleased to say that because we attract safer drivers, such as car enthusiasts like you, the Chris Knott average premium currently sits at £337, some £232 lower than the index.
