  1. Hi, As well as offering members competitive car insurance, Chris Knott provides a couple of other products aimed at helping car enthusiasts like you to get back on the road quickly following an accident. One such product is our RTI/Finance GAP Insurance - we call it 'Combination GAP'. This pays the difference between your car's purchase price and your insurer's payout following a total loss/write-off. If you've got the car on finance and there's a greater amount owing, the policy pays this higher amount instead. Great news! Chris Knott GAP is available on all makes and models so it doesn't even have to be your club/forum car that you're arranging cover for. The premium is based on the original invoice or finance amount for the vehicle and we have heard that car dealers, for example, want £399 or more for 3 years' cover on a £24,995 car. Chris Knott's price for this same cover is just £120.00 and vehicles upto £15k are covered for an even cheaper £85.00. Why not ask us for a quote if you're buying a new 66 plate car or even a slightly older model (cover can be arranged for any car under 8 years old with less than 80,000 miles on the clock). This forum's dedicated link to quote and buy online is: Dedicated GAP Quote & Buy link or you can call us on 0800 917 2274 to speak to one of our friendly team members about this valuable protection. best, Nick USEFUL FURTHER INFO: What is Combination GAP?

  2. Hi, I've been on holiday for a couple of weeks so the Chris Knott Prize Draw was delayed a bit but we're now really pleased to be able to announce the winner of our most recent competition. To enter, all you had to do was request a quote from Chris Knott Insurance or renew an existing policy during June or July. The prize was a Car Photoshoot (courtesy of ImageFuel and worth £295), including a selection of the images taken on the day - Full Prize Details. The winner, selected at random, is Thomas Riley of Sheffield who renewed the cover on his '51 plate Audi A6 SE with us in July. Congratulations Thomas! We hope you enjoy your prize and the lasting memories of your car captured on 'film' (well, digital files anyway). For the rest of you, thank you if you asked us for a quote or renewed your cover with us - we genuinely appreciate your custom. If you didn't enter and your car insurance is due for renewal soon, you too could be a winner by getting a quote through the Chris Knott Car Club Scheme. Our rates are great for many - we sign up a high percentage of the quotes offered and have a strong client retention rate. To request a free, no-obligation quotation for your car, whether it's modified or standard, please call us on 0800 917 2274 and find out just how much you could save when you switch to Chris Knott. best, Nick ***************** TESTIMONIALS A small selection of the positive feedback (5 of the 47) we've received in the last month or so: "Got a quote today super happy with outcome, all mods declared loads cheaper than comparison site companies will be purchasing at the end of the month. Thanks guys." CAM320N, CivInfo "Just set my insurance up with these folks. Renewal quote 650, search quote was 430, these guys got me sorted for below 400, so happy to say worth a call." 762buzz, Kia Owners Club "Already insured with Chris Knott and my renewal was due. Got loads of quotes from other companies which were all in the range of £800. One company couldn't insure me because of my postcode. That company referred me to another company. Got a decent quote from them however after reading reviews they are not the best. So I called and spoke to a lovely lady (Melinda) she reduced my renewal quote. Renewed my insurance on the spot. Huge thanks to Melinda :)" klashinikov, Type R Owners Forum "I can't praise CK highly enough. They undercut ASDA insurance (my current policy) by over a £140 and the cheapest on GoCompare by over £30. The lassie on the phone was lovely and everything was sorted and ready for the switch over of policies without hassle. Marvellous." Nyx1962, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "I am still using them now with my new car. I have always found them to be very good!" Truth, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

  4. Well, the figures can't lie - as promised here's the Chris Knott Top 20 car club forum rankings for the first half of 2016. As you know, Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working to help the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK. To feature in our Top 20, a club/forum will be producing a high number of quote enquiries and we're converting a strong percentage into policies. It hints at the makes and models we're best at but not entirely as one club for the marque might be doing better than another club for the same marque that is not featured. Our average conversion rate is 42% at the moment (v. good for a single provider), so you've a strong chance of saving money by calling us for a quote. And 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, based on past performance. If your forum doesn't feature or it did before but has dropped out of our Top 20, get calling us and help us get you up there. It's all about picking up the phone (0800 917 2274) or completing our online quote request form to see how much you could save on your car insurance. Remember that we're happy to share our earnings with your club for every policy that goes ahead or renews so you'll benefit the club/forum too. THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20 (H1 2016) 1.

My thanks to Emma @ Chris Knott for making the whole process, quick, easy and painless. This is how it should be done! Once again 10/10." RainbowFire, Briskoda “New policy is now with you starting 12 June - very helpful and very competitive! Thanks” Mr Tidy, Z4 Forum “Well I've accepted my quote today. Happy with how I was quoted and beat my renewal quote by nearly £300. Most comparison websites were a little over £100 more on how I was getting my quotes done, but Ian talked me through it all and got it down to just a little bit under £500 on my THP165 Ultra Prestige. Very happy with that! Thanks very much.” Mjogreen, DS3 Owners Club "I've just joined CK, great quote and all confirmed by email this morning."

  5. I'd just like to thank every club member who has taken out car insurance through the Chris Knott Car Club Scheme so far in 2016. Every month (for the 7 months in a row) we've beaten our New Business target and we're now almost 10% ahead of where we expected to be. It's thanks to you and we're grateful. Already for July (the first 4 whole days) we've reached 26% of this month's target, you brilliant lot! We really do appreciate members giving us a try for their car insurance and finding out how much we can save them - and it's clearly working to everyone's benefit. If you haven't yet tried us, or you tried us before and we couldn't quite get there, please call for a quote this year and we'll do all we can to win your custom. The insurers on our panel are backing us to a great degree as we try to win more club enthusiast business. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 I'll be letting you know which clubs/forums feature in our Top 20 (year to date) in the coming weeks. Let's see if there have been any changes in the rankings - I'm expecting there will have been!! Thanks again, Nick PS.

"+1 from me, took my policy out today after you guys quoted over £1000 LESS than Academy and Adrian Flux (and £300 less than the cheapest price comparison website quote)." octaviaconvert, Briskoda "All I can say is the staff member who dealt with me (Tabitha) was nothing other than professional and very helpful, even when I called back to sort out the email I have to send for proof of my NCD. She was very helpful to an old numpty like me telling me I don't need to send it off until I'm paying, quality service all round." Mick.M, Focus ST Owners Club "Happy chappy! Just wanted to say how pleased I am with Chris Knott Insurance. Just called to update my reg number as my private plate is now going on the car, my call went straight through to Daryl who was efficient and clear and best of all there was no charge for doing this (quite right too) although all other firms seem to charge! Please pass my comments on, so far so good with Chris Knott and I'm glad I chose them, so thanks MPSOC for the heads up (I didn't know of CK before this forum)." Mr and Mrs MPS, MPS Owners Club "A Big Thank You for making my Insurance enquiry so easy and dealing with it. Cheers Guys." D15VRS, Briskoda "Purchased car insurance through Chris Knott Insurance, very pleasant easy experience and most of all competitive prices. Thanks a bunch, especially Kathy who has exceptional customer service." bladerider666, SeatCupra net "You guys just beat my best quote by £40 and my renewal by £70, so I'm a happy chappy." DPurchese, BMW Z4 Forum "I spoke to Ian at lunch, the 2x quotes they gave me for our cars are currently cheaper than any multi-car quote we've had so far. I need to do some more checks tonight but so far Chris Knott are the best deal :)." lfcrule1972, DS3 Owners Club "I went ahead with Chris Knott... £720 for both MX5's." TomTom, DS3 Owners Club "Insured mine for £500, just waiting for Joni's renewal to be up and then we'll see what deal we can get with hers on there too. Thanks as ever Nick." Dangerousfish, DS3 Owners Club "Would like to thank Melinda for taking the time to price match the better quote I found for both cars & keeping us as a customer. It was refreshing to be treated as a valued customer." Rusty2009, VXOC Astra-J/GTC forum "Kathy, kindest regards, and thanks for being so lovely and "human" to speak too!" Hannah Gosden, Canterbury "I was in the process of buying my Mazda 6 2.2d Takuya, and looking for the best insurance quotes. Having done the usual searches through Google and coming up short on various price comparison websites, I thought I would check out this forum. I found the number and called Chris Knott, at the time of calling I hadn't bought the car but was planning on getting it after work, I found out the office closed at 5pm but Rebecca said she would call me at 4:55pm and she was happy to stay later to complete my sign up. Overall it was a great experience dealing with Rebecca, she was very thorough and professional, more to the point she gave me the best quote." gt2.2, Mazda6 Owners Club

"My wife and I are happy customers now too! Kathy - bright and breezy and a pleasure to deal with. Long list of mods, including S/C - no problems." Subota Boy, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I'm very happy to be moving over to CKI." Darran, Fiesta ST Owners Club "As my new MkIII Octavia vRS is due to be delivered anytime now I started looking at insurance quotes yesterday. I'm 33, 10 yrs NCD, 1 non-fault accident and 1 SP30 but I have no idea why I have been quoted in excess of £1300 by no less than 3 brokers and all the price comparison websites coming in at over £700. Thankfully Chris Knott have come back at just £380 but the rest have been ridiculous." octaviaconvert, Briskoda "Another happy Kathy customer here, just switched to Chris Knott yesterday and got 10% off my cheapest quote elsewhere (modded car) with matching £330 excess so very happy (one rival broker who allegedly specialises in modded performance cars wanted a £3,000 excess!). Process was painless and easy and documents emailed to me quickly, and it was also a relief that for once I didn't have to explain what a strut bar was (one company when I was calling around even asked me what an air filter was!), great people to deal with." Captain Duff, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club "I've made a quote with CK recently. My renewal is due next month and my current insurer gave me a quote for a cosmic price. After 20 minutes of conversation they went to half of original price with all bonuses added. I've called CK anyway and they offered me a quote for £100 cheaper with same extras. So this year gonna move with my policy to CK. Great!" M015T, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club ********************

"Just wanted to post my experience with your company! Normally insurance time is a pain, but your team were extremely quick with quoting over the phone and great to speak to! I think it was Tabitha?? I spoke to at first, she put me with a company that accepts modifications which I can add as I go and the price was great - beat any other quote I had and also free legal cover!! Also then had a small issue to resolve, dropped Nick a quick PM on here, he replied within the hour and all was sorted!! Great customer service all round! Will definitely recommend you to friends and family and will be coming to you for a quote when the missus' insurance is due for renewal!" --AUDI--, Audi-Sport net "Renewed my insurance today with Chris Knott after spending a couple of days on the comparison sites and ringing round. They took 10% off my best quote (which was actually the renewal quote with Quote me happy/Aviva - and that was £200 less than anything else) and matched the £330 excess on my existing policy (which included declared mods - Prestige wanted a £3,000 excess!!!). Fantastic painless service, mods understood (I lost count of the times I was asked what a strut bar was, one company even asked what an air filter was ffs) and everything explained well. Money saved will now go towards my 3 year bubble payment." Captain Duff, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club "Have to say these guys are fantastic - Last year they almost halved my renewal and this year my renewal was another £53 cheaper even after changing my job title. These guys just keep getting better. The only offer I found cheaper was for a technition to come and put a black box in my car. All in all well done again CK." snoop, Fiesta Owners Club "I just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation for a great service last night. My car broke down and the service from start to finish, including the follow up call was superb. In addition the local breakdown recovery service Elva (Mike) was so helpful, professional and quick. I cannot thank you enough. Please pass this on to all concerned." Nina Willis "GT-B has been SORN over winter and I have been looking around for a quote to get it back on the road. All sorts of problems from most places with my NCB as I'm coming off a trade policy, but CK have been very helpful with that. So as of 09:45 today that's who I'm with! Thank you very much Chris Knott!" AdamH, UK Legacy Forum

  10. It'll most likely go down as a 50/50. She should have been looking properly while performing her manoeuvre but equally so should you. Did you sound your horn once you'd stopped to alert her to the fact she was going to hit you? If you did you might (might) get somewhere with that. You stopped to avoid a hit but she kept coming. I'm not in claims so the best advice you'll get is from your insurer's claims department/lawyers.
  11. You shouldn't have to pay for the repair, just your excess, until settlement. I still think the accident looks staged.
  12. It almost looks like she was waiting for you! She had also 'mounted' the kerb as she was on the pavement. Hope she was looking for pedestrians! Are her brake lights on (it looks like it)? That would suggest she's rolling under braking rather than in gear and therefore not giving you clear signals.
  13. Just a quick post bump to remind you about the Chris Knott Prize Draw. This is the final month of this draw which is our biggest yet. If you get a car quote from Chris Knott Insurance before close of play on 31st May you'll automatically be entered for the draw to WIN one of three very nice prizes (see above). April was another fantastic month and we overshot the month's target by about 20%. Thank you if you're one of those who found us to be their best option. If you haven't yet tried us for a competitive quote, make sure you include us in the mix when you're looking for cover, especially if it's important to you to use someone who truly understands the needs of car enthusiasts and the myriad modifications you make.

  16. In the Chris Knott office we've placed a board in each team where we post feedback received from happy clients to add to staff motivation. It has created quite a buzz so if you've had good service from us or you'd like to mention a particular member of staff, please feel free to post a comment on this forum and we'll pass it on. You'll know that I also put feedback at the bottom of my posts on this forum so you can see how good we are for car club/forum members like you. The problem is (since we had our best ever February, and March was also a stonking one) that the feedback is coming in faster than I can post it. So here's a whole load of comments received in February and March to bring us almost up to date (you don't have to read it all but you get the idea)... BTW - remember that you automatically get entered in our Prize Draw if you ask us for a quote before 1 June - details in the Chris Knott/Insurance section of this forum and at http://www.chrisknott.co.uk/rewards/2016/spring - QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (free from mobiles too) Testimonials "Just a quick feedback. You guys are LITERALLY THE BEST!!! I've received the best insurance renewal quote ever. You managed to beat the cheapest quote I had, by offering me a comprehensive insurance £210.00 cheaper than the cheapest one I received earlier on this week! £210.00!! Still can't quite believe it. Thank you ever so much CKI!" mrfrankowski, Astra Owners Network "Just taken out a policy with Chris Knott as they beat my renewal price and the comparison sites easily. Excellent service too." scottyr, CivInfo "On my second year with CK." Paul, Audi RS3 Owners Club "I joined Chris Knott last week. The quote swept the floor with A***** F***, though AF served me well for the year I was with them. Hopefully CK is as good as people say. Also, Cathy was a massive help when I was inquiring. Big props to her!" elipton, UK Cougar forum "All things said and done, nobody has beat your quote I just obtained for the Celica I just acquired. So happy days, and thank you!... PS. I love Kim...she sounds like Grandma Ethyl from Dinosaurs. Very friendly too so all in all makes for pleasant phone calls." shnazzle, MR2 Roadster Owners Club "I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I rang up to renew my insurance with Chris Knott. I knew it would go up (knowing about the increase in IPT) but also having to add a claim to my history (on another car/policy). I can't remember the exact amounts but my policy just went up approx £50 when everyone else I tried added £200-£300 for having a claim! Really good service from yourselves, and will be ringing to add my other car to my policy when I get it back." tricky1138, MR2 Roadster Owners Club "You ALMOST had me this year but unfortunately due to my age/lack of ownership with my S3 you were unable to insure me if/when I go to stage 2+, so for that reason I had to go with [someone else] this time. However once this year's insurance is up and I've had more experience, etc. I will certainly try you again as your overall business/approach seems excellent and I was very happy with the chap I spoke to who wasn't trying to force me into anything, gave me great advice and was also very friendly. Ian Willis I think he was called - please give him some good feedback :) I'll be in touch next year." Craig-P, Audi-Sport forum "Just like to say thank you for all your help today Ian, very pleased with the £330 quote yesterday inc. the mods for this year." Sag, Land Cruiser Club "Dear Tabitha, many thanks for such great service. You made the whole process very painless. Once again, thank you." P Billingham, Westfield "Thank you, just got a very reasonable quote and looking likely to accept. Using a good underwriter (Highway) with an acceptable excess and accepted my mods: great." Hipstar, TT Forum "Had a delightful chat with Kathy today, nice to speak to someone that likes to have a laugh with their customer. The premium compared to my renewal with H******* was similar, but I've moved to a mod-friendly policy, which might be a bad thing for the wallet, but nice to know that I can now consider modifications if I want to go that route. Kathy was great though, really lovely, and it was partly her lovely manner on the phone that made me think "you know what, I'm happy to change and move away from H*******". No bad dealings with H******* at all I might add, but lovely service for the quote and discussions about the car that made me feel warm and welcome." Hanslow, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "Chalk another one up to Kathy - when she gave her name when answering the call, I knew it must be fate! LOL. Gave her a nice little shock when I told her she was the subject of a forum thread! Very friendly as mentioned above though... Thanks CK for a good, competitive quote!" Fusion243, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "Purchased insurance from Chris Knott - excellent price, excellent service, highly recommend." curtvx, VXR Online "I'm still with CKI and had need to check something recently, the question was answered promptly and efficiently and was the one I wanted to hear too. Yes they will cover the modification of having a Tow Bar, for free. Some companies don't." velocemitch, Alfa Romeo OC "+1 happy customer. Joined today with my A3. Hassle-free experience and ultra-pleasant price, beating A***** F*** and others. Thanks guys hope my next call is for renewal!" noriders, Audi-Sport forum "Been a loyal CK customer for over 10 years with at least 2 policies a year running & at times 3. Also recommended to family & friends on numerous occasions. Always had great service & decent quotes pro rata for cover." mr wilks, Z4 Forum "Tried all sort of comparison websites and even approached a few directly. Even with a 1 Year NCD and a puny little Jazz the quotes were staggeringly high. £780 if I pay upfront + I would need to get a black box installed. The cheapest non-blackbox insurance was about £900+. I thought let's give @ChrisKnottIns a try as they talk about club discounts etc all the time. Well called them up, wait was a bit longer than expected but at the end of the phone call I was with a fully comp policy including legal cover and no pesky blackbox for a price I could not believe as they beat every single quote by a margin and that is with monthly payments and 'a declared mod' so yeah, really, really happy about it and I have already recommended them to my friends." legend-ary, Honda Karma UPDATE: "Wow @ChrisKnottIns Your quote bested all the others and I have now purchased a fully comp policy with you guys! Fantastic...can't recommend you guys enough in fact you should be getting a call from a friend of mine soon." legand-ary, Honda Karma (see above) "My wife's insurers wanted an additional £126 on top of the £430 paid in November to switch from the 2.4 Accord to the 'what should be cheaper to insure' 2.0 FR-V. I told them where to stick it and cancelled her policy. Called Chris Knott and they came back with £290 as a new policy. Now that's 3 policies in the family with Chris Knott." qc2, Honda Karma UPDATE: "I've just got my insurance through Chris Knotts for just over £300 and that's declared any mods, they beat my previous insurance company and got to admit I found Ian very helpful." sag, Landcruiser Club "Yep! It worked for me too. All the other companies I tried had higher premiums for the same terms. Many thanks CKI. BasilBB, uklegacy forum "Very pleased and glad insurance is now sorted for another year. Excellent service, highly recommend anyone to get a quote from CKI" curtvx, VXRonline "Got a great quote from Chris [Knott] today... from 800 down to 380...fab.. many thanks." hairyman68, 350z-UK "Spoke to Kathy this afternoon and she was very helpful. Beat nearest quote (although would still like it to be less). When our other Octavia is due for renewal in a few months, I will be in contact." AirborneVRS, Briskoda "5* - Just sorted my car insurance for another year. Matched and beat quotes I'd gotten elsewhere and £165 cheaper than my renewal. So glad to be back with you for my insurance. Great service and always lovely people to deal with. Superb level of cover too! Thank you very much." Aaron Carter, Facebook "Please let me place on record my appreciation of the courteous and efficient way Tabitha dealt with my enquiry." Jeff Ellis, Cardiff "Just took my policy out with them and got a decent enough price...thanks." fridgeman, GT86/BRZ Owners Club UPDATE: "Thanks Nick, you guys are amazing. You actually beat a requote today for me. I will be sorting out the paperwork as soon as I know when I'm picking up the car and will be bringing my wife's insurance policy over to you on 9 June. Cheers." AirborneVRS, Briskoda "Speak with Volvo Owners Club Insurance Scheme, through Chris Knott. I've always had a good deal through them but, as with any broker, haggle a bit!" mjk164, Volvo Owners Club "Some specialist older or performance insurers sometimes have good offers...with me not being 25 yet the best price came via Chris Knott." Pete940, Volvo Owners Club "Just signed up with Chris Knott - done me a fantastic deal beating all other quotes I had. Very happy with the result on my 2.5 ghia x thanks." kmb306, Ford Mondeo OC best, Nick
  17. Hi, here's just a quick reminder that you could benefit from Chris Knott's highly competitive GAP Cover if you're thinking about buying a new or nearly new car in the coming months. It doesn't have to be a club car - it might be an extra car for your household. If you're buying from a dealer, the subject of GAP Insurance is bound to come up at some point. Of course, your dealer will have their own product to offer you but is there a better option? You bet there is! There’s a good chance you’ll save quite a bit of money over the dealer’s offering when you ask for a Chris Knott GAP quote - check out the testimonials below. And as we’re insurance experts you’ll have the benefit of sound, professional advice too if you need it. For your no-obligation GAP quote please either call Chris Knott on 0800 917 2274 or use our online Quote & Buy facility at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP to find out how much you could save. best, Nick USEFUL LINKS What is GAP?: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP/CombinationGAP Online Quote: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP Policy Summary: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/docs/GAPC_Summary.pdf Full Policy Wording: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/docs/GAPC_Wording.pdf ****************** TESTIMONIALS about Chris Knott GAP Cover: "Just took this [GAP] up with Andy when we bought the wife's new Toyota GT86. £151 to cover a £29k car. This is combined cover to clear any finance and most importantly, pay the difference between the insurance settlement and the initial invoice price. Dealer wanted over £400! They also provided car insurance cover for the car. Again, really competitive prices and I know from experience that the cover, should the worst happen, is excellent." Squadrone Rosso, Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK "FYI guys - just got a very competitive quote for car insurance and GAP insurance on the ultra prestige model from a lovely lady at Chris Knott. Worth checking out!" mjogreen, DS3Club "I've used Chris Knott for a few years as a direct result of seeing them on here. They do great value GAP insurance too." dagdave, CMax OC "Just a quick one, covered my ST earlier with Chris Knott's GAP Insurance, £120 for 3 years, it took me 5 minutes for a quote online and about 10 minutes on the phone to finalise. The lady I spoke to was great and managed to answer everything I asked. The purchase of GAP insurance was purely for peace of mind in case the car is ever to go missing and doesn't return. Don't hesitate, £40 per year is nothing for peace of mind. I can't comment on the service in a situation where the car has gone but so far so good!" titchytom86, FiestaST OC
  18. Hi, It's great to be able to bring you another prize draw competition and offer you something in addition to the competitive car insurance rates you'll find when you ask Chris Knott to quote for a car we don't yet insure.

Genuine quotes only please - the winners will need to supply a copy of their existing renewal invitation to confirm final eligibility. Get calling and good luck! ************************ TESTIMONIALS We're getting them in faster than I can post them but here are a few comments from the last couple of weeks: "I used to be very sceptical of "special" car insurance offered through forum communities because it has never worked for me... until today! I called Chris Knott this morning and got quoted £200 less over the Premium (and £250 less over the Excess) if compared with the best quote I got from Ad*****, Elep**** and Dia****. I will be calling Chris Knott tomorrow to formalise things. Thank you." Gustavo7, Z4 Forum "Just got off the phone with Chris Knotts about the work car. Premium's £630 cheaper than previous year/insurer plus the bonus of almost no waiting time on the phone for an operator (never waited more than 2 min on any call tbh). So Chris Knotts, I've passed all the details onto the managing director including the screen grabs you requested. He should give you a call shortly to sort out payment etc. Roll on the discount for the coupe in the summer!" Lexo, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "Thought I'd give my review of the past few weeks, ringing around getting renewal quotes. Online quotes circulated around the £600 mark - almost double what I pay now! 3 weeks ago Br******* phoned me and quoted £480, with the similar scheme of it completely insured up to a certain power band. They also said that they can't book the quotation as it needed to be within 30 days of the renewal time (standard procedure). Nick from Chris Knott put me through to one of the guys in the office who gave me a renewal quote that was considerably less than Br*******'s price, but again needed to be within 30 days. Funnily enough Br****** phoned me this morning and has now quoted me £595. Wow. I told the guy on the phone that I received a call them them 3 weeks ago saying £480, and explained their scheme to them. He then decided I was a liar!... He proceeded to put me on hold. Then a while later comes back to me with 'we'll honour that quote'. But clearly he was fishing and was too late, when I told him what Chris Knott had quoted me. The conversation went even sour: "Well they can have your car for £XXX then, we're never going to get anywhere near that."...There are still a few insurance companies that are due to phone me within the 30 day mark, but for now I thank my existing insurers Chris Knott for their prompt service, excellent 1-to-1 phone service and very decent renewal quote." Kesler, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I took this out with said company above when I got my ST back in 2014. When I picked up its replacement (sadly a non-ST) I rang from the new car and changed the policy over in minutes. Top class service, let's hope it's the same standard if a claim needs to be raised." Tim, FiestaST OC
  19. Hi, I can't keep it in any longer - I'm too excited for you. So I've decided I'm going to let you in now on something pretty cool that's happening in the next few days. It's still very hush-hush so I can't say too much at this stage or I'll get in trouble but I wanted you to know that the next Chris Knott prize draw is soon to be launched and it promises to be the best one yet! What I can tell you is that it will benefit anyone asking us to quote, between 1 March and 31 May, for a car we don't yet insure. If that's you you'll automatically be entered for the draw and this time there's more than one awesome prize. Look, I've got to shut up now or I'll say too much but make sure you ask us for a quote under our special club scheme during March, April or May if you're interested in finding a better quote for your car insurance and you'll gain entry to the draw. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (free for mobiles too) - please mention this forum. When I can say more, I'll fill you in on the prize details. best, Nick PS. We can quote 30 days ahead so you may be able to benefit from the draw even if you're not due until the end of June (just get your quote before 31 May). ******************* In the meantime, here's some recent feedback about the scheme. We love hearing from you. If you've had a good experience we can pass it on to the team member/members involved to encourage them. "We have 2 cars insured with you and you've been great. We've just ordered 2 new ones for delivery in March so we'll be calling you again soon to see what you can do. Thanks again." scrounger, BabyBMW "They are brilliant. I know the company well and have used them for many years. Both my Golf V5 and Volvo are insured with them. I know Nick's word is good. Known him for many years and a true professional as his company. Give them a try. Loyalty bonuses help on renewal too." Matt, UK-MkIVs "Rang for a quote yesterday, spoke with Rebecca who was very friendly and very helpful, K&N induction kit declared and accepted on policy with a very good price. Took out policy and printed cover note and documents an hour later. Excellent service." sliderboy, CivInfo "£62 cheaper than my current insurer. Not bad, going to ring around and see what others offer, think it may be hard to beat though!" rob275, GT86 & BRZ Drivers Club "Just got yourselves another new customer!!! Came in £50 cheaper than Axa who were the cheapest of all others!" slackworth, Audi-Sport net "Just spoke to Kim, got me a great quote. Great service, an insurance company I recognize - not only cheap but really good cover too :) Thanks!" sharkrider, Briskoda *******************
  20. The results are in... As you know, Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working to help the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK. A bit like the BAFTAs on TV last night we've compiled the Chris Knott Top 20 - a ranking of our top car club partners over the last year in terms of enquiry levels, number of policies written and quote conversion rate (success rate). If your club features (or one that represents your marque) it means you're more likely to save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote, based on past performance. If your club doesn't feature, it's probably more to do with enquiry levels than conversion rate so get asking us to quote and you could be on our leaderboard next time around!! Remember that we're happy to share our earnings with your club for every policy that goes ahead or renews so you'll benefit the club/forum too. THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20 (2015) 1.

  23. How to get a great car insurance deal in 2016... Hi, It's always good to know if there are special deals to be had. Maybe deals that are not available to Joe Public. The Chris Knott Insurance scheme is one such deal that rewards car enthusiasts with better car insurance rates just for having joined up with this club/forum. OK, so what's the deal? What makes it different to all the other car insurance providers? Well, the insurers on our panel believe that you'll be a better risk than the average driver. So they'll allow us to do all we can (within set criteria) to attract you, including offering very competitive rates. Does it work? You bet it does!... Today, I was looking at the figures for last month and was really pleased to see that our overall quote acceptance rate was 48%. That means we were the best for 48% of the people who called us. That's astonishingly good. I dug further and found that (again in December) we retained 81% of clients at their renewal so it's not a case that we hook you in with a cheap rate and then hike it later. Of course, price isn't everything but it's a major factor in choosing the next insurer for your pride and joy. Where we can we'll offer you a quote that's better than anything else you can find out there and that may involve you telling us what your best alternative is. As I said, the insurers on our panel will often be flexible on their price to win you (and keep you). In addition to great rates we also reward the clubs that we work with. Where they're interested, we pay commission for each policy sold to a member and we pay again at each renewal. This helps to cover the running costs of the club/forum. Last year we paid over £92k in commission to clubs/forums to say thank you for working with us to encourage members to at least try us for a quote. Will you try us and see how much you can save with the Chris Knott Car Club Insurance scheme? Check out the testimonials below from other happy car club members. Did I mention that we're mod-friendly too? QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 We're working hard to save you money and give something back to the club/forum when we do. So please pick up the phone when your renewal falls due and request your special 'club member' quote. best, Nick PS. Don't forget that we also offer you multi-buy discounts, loyalty rewards and a 'recommend a friend' scheme. We're offering you and the car enthusiast community more than the average insurance provider will. Please call us on 0800 917 2274 for your no-obligation quotation. ************************ Recent Testimonials - there are alot of them so I don't expect you to read them all but you'll get the idea: "Well after seemingly endless calls to various companies (many I've used in recent years but some new) to get the V70R back on the road, it looks like I've got a deal!... Modern policies were sky high, as I've just turned 25… and as I'm not going to use it as my every day car, I can't use my 6 years NCB on quotes. Just got off the phone with Kim at Chris Knott, and they're covering me for £445 on a modern policy (so it can earn its own NCB) fully comp. Very helpful, and VOC get a few quid out of the deal as well!" Warninglight, Volvo Owners Club "Just renewed my 4.2 A8 with you. Good price, good sales rep (Ian)." alanyork, Audi-Sport forum “Another "quote me happy" customer. Easily the most competitive this year. You were not able to cover me last year, due to only 2 months experience with a RWD car, but thankful I gave you a call this year. Thanks again to Kim who was very professional and took me through everything in the right amount of detail.” James Durbin, Z4 Forum "Great quote & service from Rebecca @Chris_Knott_Ins - will be back with the other 2 cars for you to quote next month." Jason Adderley, Twitter “Better Rates. Time for my first renewal since acquiring my 2012 S Class so compared my old insurers quotes with compare the market and found a cheaper price. Then tried Chris Knott who both matched the best quote and offered me an extra £20 off so I have accepted it.” Nicholas15, Mercedes-Benz Owners Forum “I found CK well priced and very clued up on mods, would recommend.” mark-in-stoke, GT86 Owners Club “Not only were the team helpful when I came to renew my insurance, over £200 less than my previous insurance company who I’ve been with for many years, but even when closed they managed to help me on Boxing Day by using their Facebook messaging service. I would highly recommend these guys and have several friends who have taken out policies.” Mathew Watson, Facebook “Not often I'm this impressed but the service I received today from Ian at Chris Knott was second to none. Not only were they open this morning (2nd Jan) but the quote was very competitive, fast, and the transaction went through immediately trouble free. I was able to tax the new convertible online within minutes of coming off the phone to Ian. Really impressed, Thanks.” Jimmylegs, Celica Club “Called up again today to inform them of the pending OBX 4-2-1 manifold going on. "No problem, that's the policy updated for you". Cloud 9. Must have been about the 10th call to them to makes changes over the term so far, certainly been 3 in the last 2 months what with the lowering springs etc. No charge again. Thank you.” Lexo, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club
  24. UPDATE: MotoGP Silverstone tickets - winner Happy New Year to you all! We're really grateful to everyone who contacted Chris Knott last year for a quote. Please remember to give us a call again this year as your renewal comes due, especially if either the price, your age or your experience were an issue before. Chances are you'll now fit our criteria and we look forward to helping even more car club/forum members to get a better car insurance deal. December was an amazing month for the scheme and we thrashed the month's target - so thank you very much. Maybe it was because we were offering such an awesome prize in our monthly draw - MotoGP Silverstone tickets, three days for two people. I'm pleased to announce the winner of the Chris Knott December Prize Draw as Jake Moakes, a member of BimmerForums. Jake, we'll be in touch next week to arrange to get the tickets to you. Congratulations! All Jake did was ask us for a quote. Why don't YOU pick up the phone and request a quote too?

We look forward to helping you save money this year. best, Nick ************************* TESTIMONIALS Here's what club members have said about Chris Knott's prices and service in the last month or so: "Try Chris Knotts - just a quickie to say thanks again to Chris Knotts. They were the cheapest when I got the policy 6 months ago and just called them up to tell them about the cat back that's being fitted on Saturday. Zero charge for policy amendment and zero hike in premiums." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe Owner Club "I also went with CKI as they were cheaper than my renewal from eSure. Ian was very helpful on the phone with my quote and the communication back about the quote, acceptance of my no claims bonus, renewal quote and licence came through the day they received it (day after I posted it using prepaid label) meant I knew it was received and in order. I also got another text today thanking me for my business and here is the claims phone number if I should ever need it. My policy came into effect as from yesterday." ScoobyDoo, JagInfo "Well done. Got my coupe today and Rebecca from Chris Knott's team done a great job beating the cheapest quote I had, and that included Euro use, and key cover." paulk, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "Just spoke to these guys, Adam I think it was, beat A***** F*** by £40 and my existing insurer by over £80. £345 for an old timer (just turned 50) like me including 90 days Euro cover sounds fair to me so I will be taking this up in the next couple of weeks." davedutch, Nissan 350Z Forum *************************
