  1. Hi, it's always good to see what experience other people have had before you make a purchase, so here's the feedback we've received at Chris Knott Insurance since 1st August. We've gathered it via Trustpilot and the various car clubs and groups we work with. I hope this inspires you to give us a try for your next car insurance quote. Please call us on 0800 917 2274 mentioning this forum to access our car club member rates. TESTIMONIALS Chris Knott has looked after me for a few years and I am always pleased with the service received. Their professional image gives me confidence that I am purchasing a product from a reputable company which values me. C Wakefield, TrustPilot Fantastic staff and speedy service. So pleased with them. Try them - so nice to talk to someone. B Moss, TrustPilot Can I say a huge thanks for the running around Chris Knott Insurance did for my insurance this year Ant Lawton, UKPassats I have been with Chris Knott for the past 2 years, can't fault them - decent company and good prices D Archibald, UKPassats Gave me a very good quote and with all mods declared Garry Want, Peugeot 407 UK Beat every price I threw in the ring. Chucked in Breakdown. and then mentioned multicar and got the wife on with CK too. Best insurers I've had by far. Can't fault them at all! Richard Rigg, TT MK1 OC Almost halved my renewal quote and a really good policy too. Iain Anderson, AOUK Been with them for a few years now, always been very competitive and their GAP insurance has been good! Mick Jones, AOUK More than half the admin team are insured by them. They are club sponsors. Steve Shepherd, AOUK I second Chris Knott Insurance, better deal with extras that others charge for Terry Read, Ford C-Max MK1 & MK2 Owners Club Been using you for years now. Always been very happy with the overall package. Lowe, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club I have just called Chris Knott Insurance, they have beaten my price of my current company by £40.00 and I asked about bringing my missus car over and they have beaten that price by £86.00. Not a bad saving for making a phone call. G-Force, BimmerForums All very quick and easy to get cover, and at a good price. Jonathan, TrustPilot Ian was very helpful, friendly but professional, I couldn’t be happier. B Hrecska, TrustPilot Thanks Chris Knott - excellent service once again. It's so much better being able to talk to someone when you need to. Darren, TrustPilot Been with this insurer for 15 years. Just come back this year. Can't be beaten on price, for cover you get. N Jones, TrustPilot A very efficient, clear and honest service with very good advice. J Ling, TrustPilot Good service easy to deal with. K Evans, TrustPilot Quicker than doing an on-line trawl for insurance, great advice and a very competitive deal. I would definitely recommend A Pughsley, TrustPilot Professional and courteous. A Sehdev, TrustPilot I have had insurance for my Saab 9-3 with Chris Knott for several years. They are always straightforward to deal with and you speak to a person not a computer. Their rates are competitive and in my experience as good as the internet comparison sites. Recommended, especially if you have a Saab. A Maw, TrustPilot This company has been my chosen insurer for 6 yrs not the cheapest but the best policy I could find, staff always happy to help and breakdown service is amazing. Great service and would recommend. A Ellis, TrustPilot Helpful and quick, with a very competitive quote 🙂 ilikiebrainfood, TrustPilot Excellent service and advice. Colin, TrustPilot How a broker should be...Just renewed with Chris Knott for 9th year running now. Small and friendly team who are very easy to get hold of by phone or e-mail, knowledgeable, helpful and extremely pleasant to deal with. They do what they say they will, on time and without fuss. A genuine pleasure to deal with and happy to recommend without hesitation. A Dutton, TrustPilot Currently getting new quotes before continuing with CKI after renewal. Very impressed with service and professionalism over the last year. You guys are awesome and so helpful, so I couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Richard Keith Rigg, British Modified Great, personal service. Highly recommended. N Johnson, TrustPilot Insurance isn't always as simple (or as cheap) as putting some details into a comparison site. And this is why for me Chris Knott gets 5 stars. I have used the company on many occasions and always had a great experience. The consideration of what the best policy is for you isn't just 'what is the cheapest', but considers your full overall circumstances and requirements. It just so happened that what they came up with for me not only did this, and gave me confidence that I had the right cover, but it also WAS the cheapest, much better than any comparison site. I am happy in the confidence knowing I have valid cover, which has been backed up with a person putting things in place for me as per what I specifically needed. M Oliver, TrustPilot Got our latest insurance through Chris Knott, a company we have used many times way back in the past and have been persuaded back by an Owners Club scheme. A quote at an unbeatable price with excellent extras meant it was a 'no brainer'. Don't know why we haven't tried them in recent years. Graham, TrustPilot Always an excellent service over the years. I try other quotes, of course, but Chris Knott is one to keep IMHO D Murphy, TrustPilot Pleasure to do business with. Provided me with just what I wanted with ease and efficiency. Mr Hayward, TrustPilot Very good. No lengthy telephone calls, totally hassle free. Documents arrived the next day as it should be. Recommended. A Dyson, TrustPilot Excellent assistance with comprehensive cover of a modified Alfa Romeo GT through the Alfa Owner's Club (AROC). D Tilley, TrustPilot Very easy and straightforward, staff have always been helpful and pleasant. G Fisher, TrustPilot Excellent comms and very good price. Highly recommended. Gary B, TrustPilot Thanks for reading. best, Nick
  2. Hi, just to let you know that you can benefit from Chris Knott's UK Breakdown Cover discount offer this month - https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/news/UK-Breakdown-Cover-Offer-September-2019.html?ref=forums Our comprehensive cover (which includes HomeStart) normally costs just £63 for the year.

If you have any questions about the cover please get in touch. best, Nick
  3. 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

    Winter Tyres and Chris Knott

    Winter Tyres and Chris Knott Hi, I'm often asked on club forums (and Facebook groups) about switching to winter wheels/tyres and whether an insurer will charge extra if you do. As it's getting to that time of year again I thought I'd just reassure any Chris Knott clients that the insurers we use don't usually charge for this. However, if you are thinking of swapping your wheels we do have to log when you make the switch and then again when you go back to normal - so please let us know on 0800 917 2274. Thanks, Nick *** *** *** FEEDBACK "Been with them for years now. I check about every year but so far the best price, understanding of simple mods / winter wheels and cust service has been there every time. Very happy so far." Joanna Cole, New Mini Scotland "Excellent service when arranging insurance for 2 cars. As much as possible is done by email which is efficient..." Julian P, TrustPilot "Quick, simple and always matching prices with trustworthy insurances." Carla, TrustPilot "First class service. Cannot fault any of the service given, highly recommended." Paul H, TrustPilot "Continuing my annual insurance search, Chris Knott have beaten my (already cheap) renewal by 10% but I’m getting some really outrageous quotes. Most north of £500 and a few into 4 figures!" Steve Ingall, Alfabook

Just wanted to pass on my views of Chris Knott Insurance. After several hours as a keyboard warrior going through various comparison sites and filling out form after form, it was a pleasure to speak to a real human in the form of the helpful Kathy. Although they did not fully match the best quote I had received, they got pretty close. But the real human approach won me over and I have gladly paid a bit more. So, so far a very good experience."

For details of the DashCam itself see https://www.nextbase.co.uk/dash-cams/front-and-rear-hd-dash-cam/ *** TESTIMONIALS More recent feedback about the Chris Knott offering (you can check us out on TrustPilot too): "Glad I found this, renewed my insurance with you guys and got a great quote and actually spoke to a very nice person and not just some mindless irritating person. Thanks." domhart10, Volvo Owners Club "I had my renewal notice from my existing insurer yesterday, nearly choked on my coffee when I saw the amount!! I then tried the usual comparison site exercise and secured some cheaper options online as expected, mostly from companies I'd never heard of which always worries me! I then rang Ian at Chris Knott about the VOC Insurance offers and was very pleasantly surprised with his helpfulness and efforts in securing an amazing price for my V90. I reckon he's saved me around £500 on my original renewal shock, using a 'household name' insurance company too. Definitely worth giving Chris Knott a try!" cassell, Volvo Owners Club "That time of year again! Got my renewal quote from Chris Knott, not the cheapest this time, renewal came in at £435, cheapest online was £390 with esure. Rang Chris Knott, they waived the admin fee, and applied my recommend a friend discount, and new renewal came to £401, not that far from the cheapest but I'm not going to quibble over £11. This will be the fourth year with the same insurer!" Imran, VWAudiForum "I had to ring and inform my Insurer about the new tow bar. A call to the firm took me 42 seconds from start to finish. It was stress free and the service was faultless. It really proved that all this data protection stuff spouted by some other places can be done without stressing everyone out and all the better for it. I hope I never have a claim to try the service to the full, but up to now I am hugely impressed with the service, the price and the cover provided. WELL DONE and my thanks!" The Panda Nut, FiatForum "Great company to be with and are very helpful I can recomend CK to anyone." sub, FiestaSTOC

    Mind the GAP

    I just wanted to highlight a product in the Chris Knott range that will benefit some members when buying a new or nearly new car. Chris Knott GAP Cover is important if you'd like to replace your car with another one at the original value following a total loss claim. Highly competitive, this protection is likely to be vastly cheaper than your car dealer's equivalent offering. What is Chris Knott GAP cover? You may have heard of Finance GAP or Return To Invoice (RTI) GAP but Chris Knott's GAP is a combination of the best of both those worlds... In the event of a total loss, your motor insurer will only pay you the market value of your vehicle at the time of the loss. However, you may have outstanding finance owing on the vehicle which is greater than that market value. In any case you'll get back less than you paid for, or owe, on the vehicle. This insurance covers you for 3 years and pays you the difference between your motor insurer's payout and the outstanding finance amount OR the net purchase invoice price (WHICHEVER IS GREATER) so you can buy another car for the original value. Low cost, high value Cover starts at just £117.85 for 3 year's cover - that's about £39 per year for great peace of mind. Even a £50,000 vehicle only costs £216.22! Get a quote See how affordable Chris Knott GAP Cover could be for you at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP/?ref=clubs or call us on 0800 917 2274. best, Nick PS. Cover must be arranged within the first 90 days of ownership but is available for all vehicles less than 8 years old with less than 80,000 miles on the clock at the start of the policy. *** GAP Testimonials "I've been with Chris Knott for quite a few years including both the XE and the previous XF, plus my other runabouts. Also insured modified cars with them in the past with no hassle. Got my GAP insurance through CKI as it was a lot cheaper than Jaguar's own quote and others, too. They've always been the best for service, speed and price..." Pete McK, JagInfo "Just a quick one, covered my ST earlier with Chris Knott's GAP Insurance...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..." titchytom86, FiestaST OC
  14. Why you should request a CK quote this Autumn... Hi, if you were thinking about using a club sponsor for your car insurance but weren't quite sure whether it would be worth it (whether we can compete) you might be interested in 2 things about Chris Knott... 1. Personal service and attention coupled with competitive quotes. Chris Knott recognises that our car insurance quotes have to be competitive in order to win your custom.

    Choosing your own repairer

    Choosing your own repairer. Hi, I was contacted recently by one of the clubs we work with. They were concerned about the issue of 'approved repairers' and they wanted to know what our insurer partners' stance would be. Clearly, most car club members wouldn't want just anyone repairing their pride & joy - you probably have a preferred bodyshop in mind already as you're reading this. And this is where the issue lies. If you have an accident and want to use your preferred bodyshop over the insurer's approved repairer, can you do it without penalty? We've heard that some insurers make it difficult by doubling the excess or not using genuine OEM parts. That's not what you want! I checked with our main insurers and they are very accommodating. They recognise that car enthusiasts like you will be more interested in who the repairer is and whether any parts are pattern or genuine. So I'm pleased to confirm that you are able to request that your preferred bodyshop is used. Where there's no reason not to use them i.e. they are not majorly uncompetitive, the insurers on our panel will be happy to accommodate your request. There will be NO increased excess and, wherever possible, the use of genuine parts will be approved. The only slight downside when you choose your own garage is that the insurers can't control whether your repairer has a courtesy car available. But I guess for many of you your club car is not your main vehicle and if that is a problem it's still possible they will have one available for you - it just can't be guaranteed by your insurer. If you like the sound of having the freedom to choose your own repairer please call us for your car insurance quote on 0800 917 2274. And don't forget, if you request your quote before 30/11 you'll be in with a chance to WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas, courtesy of the Chris Knott 'Awesome Autumn' Prize Draw. best, Nick ************** Recent Testimonials "I have been with Chris Knott for a few years now and no one can touch them or get close to what I'm quoted by these guys. Top quality can't recommend them enough." gearinator, RoverTech "Thumbs up for Chris Knott. New policy for my returning R32 (collecting tomorrow!) and a great renewal. 20% cheaper than G********* for identical cover. Very pleasant to deal with so a thank you to Kim on the phone today." VED, R32 Owners Club "Have used Chris Knott the last 5 years. Superb service and always the cheapest rate around." Notleks, Seat Cupra forum **************
  17. 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.

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

  19. NEW CHRIS KNOTT PRIZE DRAW: Silverstone F1 Grandstand Tickets x2 Hi, I'm excited to reveal another prize competition from Chris Knott... one that's for new AND existing customers :) We consulted the members of all the car clubs and forums we work with when selecting the prize for Chris Knott's 2017 Spring Prize Draw. So, the members have spoken - request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote before close of play on Wednesday 31st May for your chance to WIN 2x grandstand tickets at the 2017 Silverstone F1 Grand Prix. All you have to do is ask us for a quote and you'll automatically be entered for our draw to win this fantastic prize (worth over £500). Of course, we're hoping to win something too - you as a new customer! You don't have to purchase cover in order to qualify for the draw, just receive a quote. If our cover, service and price stack up it makes sense for you to switch to the car enthusiasts' specialist. We can quote about 30 days in advance of your renewal so even if your car insurance isn't due until late June you can still obtain a quote before the deadline. The GP tickets naturally cover all the events of Race Day - Sunday 16th July 2017 - and we've thrown-in circuit parking for one vehicle too. HOW TO ENTER... Either call us (always our preferred method) on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum's unique quote code, or complete contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and we'll call you for the quote details (though we risk missing you and therefore you might not gain entry). If your car insurance is due soon, pick up the phone for your Chris Knott quote. Oh, and existing CK clients, you'll automatically gain entry too, if your renewal is due in the timeframe, when we invite your renewal. best, Nick ************************** Testimonials Yet more positive feedback received from car club members in the last few days: "Just thought I'd say a big thank you to Chris Knott, especially Kathy, for their competitive quote for this year, but more for the speed that everything was done and dusted in. I used to work in the Insurance industry, but they never achieved service levels like this." kentphil1, Briskoda "Saved about £180 on mine and £35 for my wife, both with superior cover to Admiral and lower excess!" Robbijay, GT86/BRZ Owners Club "I work in retail and so realise people are quick to criticise and lack in praise when a job is done well. I'd like to say how helpful Daryl White was in renewing my car insurance policy. Within 25 minutes he'd reviewed a quote, called me back, adjusted it and sent new documents! Thoroughly happy with the service I've received, both on this occasion, a previous call on Monday (don't recall the gent's name, sorry) and with yourselves in general, this is exactly how you retain customers!" Rob Harper, Micra Sports Club
  20. Hi, I thought some of you might like to see this interesting vid featuring one of the insurers we use to underwrite the club's car insurance scheme - ERS. Gumball 3000 organisers were looking for a specialist insurer to underwrite this year's event - a motor risk that includes Saudi princes, oligarchs and celebrities, driving prestige cars and imported vehicles worth over £30 million on a 3,000 mile journey through 10 countries. Most insurers ran a mile. ERS got under the skin of one of the world's most unique motor risks to underwrite the Gumball 3000 rally. You'll see Chris Knott has partnered with insurers who, like us, know what they're doing when it comes to assessing motor risks, are proper car enthusiasts and take great effort to understand the needs of those they're covering. ERS has long respected the work we're doing with car club members and will help us to win your business when you ask us to quote for your car at the next renewal. Please give us a call in the mix when searching for quotes and we'll help you find the best insurance deal this year. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - remember to mention this club/forum to access all the benefits. ONLINE: complete brief contact details for a callback - https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote best, Nick *************************** Recent testimonials... "I just wanted to send you a message to say many thanks to CK Insurance and Tabitha especially who dealt with my initial query and quotation. Today I have taken out my car insurance with yourselves and it was a nice experience all-round. Tabitha was professional and easy to speak to and answered all the questions I had relating to the cover. I'll definitely recommend others to try you for a quote. You saved me over £375 compared to my renewal quote with *******, and now a chance of F1 tickets! Superb." ZakR, BabyBMW forum "Just saved £210 on my 9-5 and £167 on my 9-3 Many thanks Chris Knott." zagato, UKSaabs forum "My last insurance wouldn't cover brake or suspension mods even though they would make the car handle better, but would insure exhaust and air intakes, which sort of add more performance. Anyway, I found Chris Knott were best for me. Club Sponsor." Dan France-Athayde, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club UK "Just called up for a quote. Doing it all by phone is beautifully antiquated. However, there was a refreshing degree of honesty with the process. In my case they COULD match any sensible quote and were honest that if I wanted the bare minimum I might be able to get it marginally cheaper but highlighted the coverage differences. The breakdown cover similarly has some pretty good terms for the price. Waiting on my old insurer (£650 more expensive) to post out the paperwork." Cyber_hawk, Z4 Forum "I have my 480 on classic car insurance through Chris Knott this year; a better package than the previous one I had through ****** **** (in particular the insurance company in question is UK based and well known, as against Gibraltar based and completely unknown to me) and significantly cheaper. And I was very impressed with the service!" dcw, Volvo Owners Club
  21. Chris Knott - great prices AND service... Thank you to everyone who took up new policies with Chris Knott in April - our best month so far this year - you helped us reach 114% of our target!

Evidence that we do have the great rates available for car club/forum members and enthusiasts that we claim. Here's what a couple of club members said: "It just gets better. My documents arrived today and my premium is only £300.50 which is £10 cheaper than I was quoted." CiderFex, New Mini Scotland forum "Hello, I've just just got my Civic insured with Chris Knott. They [quoted] me £200 less than my renewal quote and £20.75 off the next best quote. I'm well happy." YonderBen, CivInfo "Chris Knott beat my *** renewal majorly.
