  1. You could be missing out if you ignore the specialist brokers (especially if your car or situation is non-standard). You might think that you're going to get your best deal on a price comparison website but actually at Chris Knott we're just as likely to beat an online price as any other. Different deals exist for brokers that mean we can easily compete in the market. Price is very important and we know that's normally the buying trigger but have you also considered what service you will get for example? WHAT TO CHECK WHEN GETTING QUOTES When you're comparing your quotes make sure you check a few key things in addition to the price so your pride and joy really is well protected: - Is there a contact number or address available if you have any issues or are they keeping you at arm's length? - What's the total excess you'll have to pay for claims (compulsory + voluntary amounts)? - What's actually included - windscreen cover, courtesy car, legal expenses? - Have you heard of the company before or are they unknown? - Are they UK based and therefore regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority? - How do their admin charges for change of address/vehicle/mods/resending documents compare? - What's the total cost (including interest) if you're paying monthly? Give Chris Knott a try at renewal and see if we'll be your best option this year. We can explain all of these things to you in your quote so you're not buying blind. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 or leave us your renewal date at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and we'll call you at the right time. best, Nick ********************************** RELEVANT TESTIMONIALS Here are some examples that specifically show Chris Knott beating the online sites - we have many more, these are just a selection: "Great company, great quote, dealt with a guy called Ian who couldn’t have been more helpful, as was everyone else I spoke with... couldn’t be more happy with the customer service, highly recommend calling them over wasting time with comparison sites." Dan Brooke, TrustPilot "I contacted Chris Knott Insurance after reading an online recommendation that they were good to deal with. I was pleasantly surprised at the prices provided, which were a total of £80 cheaper than the cheapest price I'd been able to find via searching several comparison sites. Good service as well which is always a bonus." Euan Campbell, TrustPilot "I used these last year and renewal due soon. At the time they we're the cheapest after looking at all the comparison sites." John Burrill, Saab Owners Club "So far so good. I have recently insured car and house with Chris Knott. In both cases I had done a comparison search on Google. I decided to go through talking with a human.Both agents were informative and helpful." Mrs B, TrustPilot "They are awesome! Best price I could find online and with comparisons, they beat by about £50. Plus they included ALL of the added extras you would normally pay extra for." Richard R, TTMk1OC "Gave Chris Knott Insurance a call - none of the comparison sites could touch them for my renewal." Graeme Thom, MK6 Golf Owners Club UK "I had been with Chris Knott Insurance for over 10 years up until 2013 when I got rid of my car. Recently after getting a new car, they were able to quote the best price on insurance even after a very reasonable quote from a popular price comparison website. Highly recommended, and its definitely worth getting a quote even if a comparison websites seem to be the best option." Andrew Robertson, TrustPilot

Knowing that it was due in March, I waited for my renewal notice to arrive, then called both CKI and ****. CKI were very fast with their quote and it instantly beat my renewal." Blackie_X, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I use Chris Knott for my supercharged V8 400bhp Jag and pay less than your S*** quote and I live in Birmingham." payno, BimmerForums "A happy customer. I recently contacted Chris Knott for the first time. The premium quoted was £200 less than what my existing insurer wanted. I had both cars insured with the existing company on separate policies, so there was no reward for loyalty. I went ahead and insured the Z4 through Chris Knott. The process was handled by a lady called Kim who was pleasant and relaxed throughout and did not use hard sell tactics. Everything was processed promptly before my existing policy expired. I am a satisfied customer." oldgit, Z4 Forum "I'm into my 2nd year with them and have no complaints." Mr Tidy, Z4 Forum

The joy of going to an independent broker." Jamie, Twitter "I'd definitely recommend these guys. Obviously price is a big factor when it comes to insurance but I can attest to great customer service from CKI too." DaleM, R32 Owners Club "I have both my vehicles and my partners car insured with you. 3 cars at my property with you guys including my vx220." steveukv6, VX220 Forum "Always beat any other quote, helpful staff.

  5. 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
  6. Hi guys, you remember how we often run competitions and prize draws? Well, we wanted to check with you what you find the most attractive before we select this year's prizes. In the past we've offered £100 Amazon vouchers, Virgin supercar driving experiences, tickets to events such as the MotoGP or the Performance Car Show, Euro Car Parts vouchers and even professional Car Photoshoots. These and many of the ideas that you may like to suggest are all possible. Please just let us know what you'd like (within the realms of decency and reason). Just to give you some context if you're not aware of our prize incentives - usually we offer a prize in a draw where you just have to ask us for a quote on a car we don't already cover for you in order to enter. Or we may run a virtual Show & Shine competition on social media with a prize for the best photo or car. I look forward to hearing your ideas or opinions on the prizes we've offered in the past - your chance to shape Chris Knott's car club/forum member offers this year. best, Nick Car Insurance QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please mention this forum when you call. PS. For existing clients we've now also started making exclusive client-only offers in addition to the other client offers that are always available. ********************* RECENT FEEDBACK "Gave you guys a call last week, got a competitive quote to renew, which I will take up I suspect as nobody has come close to matching it yet." Alex, Vauxhall Owners Network "I got a great quote from them, and found them a pleasure to deal with..." bmwaddict, Z4 Forum "Wow, just spoke to Milton about changing over my car and again another great service as always. I have had all my cars with Chris Knott Insurance and every time I have called, Milton has answered my call - even understands my scottish accent. Milton you are awesome, thanks for sorting out all my car insurance problems and shall speak to you next time I swap over. Number one for insurance Chris Knott. If they can't help I am afraid you might have a problem." George Stewart, Facebook "Was a long-time member with Aviva, back when it was Norwich Union. So much for loyalty. Been behind the wheel for over thirty years & never made a claim (which is quite something the way I drive!). Chris Knott saved me over £500 with exactly the same cover!" Ghost, C-Max Owners Club "Just wanted to thank you for your help. We managed to get everything sorted in the end. Price comparison site price beaten - so glad to remain a customer. Great service from Rebecca and Dawn, both were really helpful." Lowe, GT86/BRZ Owners Club
