  2. Good afternoon everyone - I'm looking for advice from someone who knows about these things. Long story short... Our car was involved in an accident just before Christmas. Transit Van 1, Fiat Panda Nil. The back end was pretty wrecked. We had the car recovered to our local (trusted) garage. It was taken from there, without or knowledge or consent, by a certain salvage company. They assessed the car on behalf of the insurance company and valued it at about half what we think it should be worth. Now, I know everyone thinks insurance valuations are lower than they should be, but they had a lot of the technical information wrong, valued it as a manual when it is automatic, didn't take into account the very low mileage or excellent condition (only 17,000 miles from new) and offered less than the We Buy Any Car valuation. All of this is the subject of an ongoing complaint to the insurance company. Now - Here is the part I need advice on - The car is currently advertised for sale on this company's auction website. As I understand it, as we haven't accepted a final offer for the total loss yet (the insurance company haven't actually confirmed officially that the car is a total loss yet) the car still legally belongs to us. That being the case, they are trying to sell something that doesn't belong to them - which must surely be illegal? Can anyone confirm this one way or the other? Many thanks...
  3. I can remember being told by my insurers that in the case of an engine swap declaration, the new price is calulated according to the donor car. So my question is: if I were to swap say from a 1.3 3F GT to a 1.4 ABD, might the insurance decrease as the 1.4 Golf is presumably cheaper to insure than a GT (don't know if it is actually cheaper - just in theory)? Or, is there a 'tax' added for the extra perceived risk of an engine conversion? Has anybody ended up with cheaper insurance despite using a larger engine - say specifically a 3F to an ABD? Or did it increase?

    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
  6. Hi friends, a quick but important message before I go off on annual leave: CAR INSURANCE SAVINGS WITH CHRIS KNOTT You'll know that we're always keen to do everything within our authority to give you the best car insurance deal.

To see how much you could save please call us free on 0800 917 2274 or complete a callback request at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=TST18 CHRIS KNOTT PRIZE DRAW In addition to competitive premiums and personal service we offer extra incentives from time to time...

I have been with them many years." Mark P, TrustPilot "Another reason why I continue to insure with Chris Knotts, they never let me down." Andrew G, Marshalls Jaguar Land Rover "Good Experience. 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." Joee, Z4 Forum

    What happened to haggling?

    What happened to being able to haggle? I've had three recent experiences where it seems haggling just wasn't an option. The first was with my breakdown cover renewal. Despite earning a years no call out 'discount' my renewal quote was a good £20 higher than last year. I phoned up and asked if they could do anything. After a bit of back and forth I said all I want is to see a discount over last year. Even if it's just £1 less. The answer? No, sorry, that's the price! The second was with a car I just bought. I tried all the tricks I've picked up over the years and the guy wouldn't budge on the price. Maybe he could see I really wanted the car as I bought it anyway. But I've always gotten something off the price in the past. The third was insurance for that car. I'm lucky, I'm old now with a rake of NCB and a clean record apart from 3 points. So my quotes on comparison sites are all pretty close and pretty cheap. Years ago that used to mean I had ammunition to play them off one another. Not today though. I called no less than 10 insurers. Said to them all "take the price to £xxx and I'll pay it right now". I wasn't being cheeky, I was only asking for £20-30 off. But they all said no! That's the price, take it or leave it. Has anyone else noticed this with places that used to give money off? Is it getting to the point it will become unacceptable to even ask? What's your thoughts?

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
  11. Hi, just wondering if there is an ecu on this as I’m looking at buying a 1989 mk2 polo s. Been quoted insurance for a black box but I don’t understand how they would fit it if there is no ecu? Thanks for any help.
  12. 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. As we only work with car enthusiasts/club members we have access to insurer schemes that aren't available on comparison sites and the like. The result is a better policy sign-up rate for us and that's obviously down to you experiencing our personal broker service and liking our quotes. 2. Our Awesome Autumn Draw. As has become customary in the run-up to Christmas, we have a competition running to encourage you to pick up the phone for a quote if your renewal is due in the coming weeks. PRIZE: WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas. How to enter: Simply request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote between now and close of play on 30th November* for your chance to win. We'll automatically add you to the draw so there's nothing else for you to do but call us for your car quote - nice and simple. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please make sure you mention this forum to access our special scheme. ONLINE: you can leave contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote/?ref=AwesomeAutumn We'll make the draw on Friday 1st December so you can choose to either keep the voucher for yourself or there'll still be time to use it to sort your Christmas gifts to others. All the best, Nick PS. The draw is also open to existing Chris Knott clients due for renewal in the same period. ************** More encouragement for you to call us - what others have said about us in recent days: "A huge thank you from me and my husband for getting so much money off our car insurance! I am seriously impressed and extremely grateful. Please send a copy of this email to your manager so that they know what a great job you have done! Have a great weekend." Mary D, Surecar "Thanks for beating my quote, giving me better cover and nearly doubling my mileage (allowance), including covering like for like mods. Happy man." Craig, New Mini Scotland "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!" carlcall, Audi-Sport forum "I'd like to express my appreciation for the way in which Rebecca dealt with changes to our insurance policies. Rebecca went well beyond her remit in finding a quote significantly cheaper than initially available, saving us ~£400, furthermore offering good advice and excellent service. I look forward to dealing with her in the future." Andrew C, Jaguar Forum "Well I got it sorted thanks to Kathy @ Chris Knott Ins, great service." TonyAVFC, FocusSTOC *Genuine quote requests only please - we reserve the right to request proof from the winner that the policy was actually due during the qualification period.

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

  15. 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
  16. 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.

"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

  19. Polo 6n on classic insurance? Hello again. I'm looking at getting a e60 535d in a few months time when I get my 2 years no claims bonus. I've tried soon many insurance companies that does multi car policies and quotes are coming back 2.5k the cheapest.

I won't be driving it that much max 3times a month as I will have my BMW then. Worse comes i might have to sell it :( Thanks nimal

Best, Nick ***************************** Feedback Others agree that we offer great service: "I've just taken out insurance for the first time today with your company. Must say, very professional service from the lady on the phone." HotBlackCoupe, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club "It's coming up to renewal time for me so decided to give CK a go, so gave them a call and was put through to Ian in their sales team. He was a really helpful chap that made the usual questions seem quick & easy. He also explained a couple of queries I had and after a very short wait the quote came through which was cheaper than the comparison sites. I have to hold my hands up here and say I did tell Ian that esure quoted me cheaper but after looking through the quote I realised I hadn't declared SWMBO non-fault claim that occurred in Dec, so after amending that and checking again CK were cheaper by about £20. Overall the quote is over £100 cheaper than what I paid last year so happy with the price and the ease of quotation and customer service have been good so far. Just my 2 cents and I hope others find it useful." PearceHD, BabyBMW.net "I've just swapped to yourselves from my insurer of the last 4.5 years after you beat their lowest quote by £35 and upped my mileage from 5K to 10K per year. Excellent work and I'd just like to add that Rebecca was a pleasure to deal with." CiderFex, New Mini Scotland "I am pleased to say I have had and accepted a quote from Chris Knott Insurance. While not quite the cheapest, I am very satisfied with the quality of the policy and service so far. In terms of value I am satisfied this is a very good offer. Additionally, no silly electronic phone systems and no long delays on the phone, but polite and quick service from a very competent lady and extraordinarily speedy provision of ultra clear documentation. It is a very nice surprise to see that some people can still communicate in straightforward and clear terms. Very refreshing - after spending a lot of time on the phone to other outfits that were a total waste of time my stress and blood pressure have returned to normal. Thank you. I will be very happy to recommend you." petercresswell, Fiat Forum

  22. So I've finally been given my girlfriend's old Polo 6n2 which I'll get on Saturday when she picks up her new car (also a Polo, a 9n3 TDI) but I'm struggling to find affordable insurance. Due to various circumstances I only passed my test this year in March at the age of 45 so only have a few months of driving experience as a named driver. Using the comparison sites I'm finding most quotes are for over £2000 a year, with Tesco Bank as the cheapest (£249.19 deposit then 11 x £127.37). I've added my girlfriend and her dad as named drivers, without which most quotes are much higher. Are there any insurance companies that might cater more towards older drivers, regardless of experience? I can't think of anything else to do to reduce the price and I'm getting desperate as I need to be insured from Saturday morning. Can anybody help?

    1.4cl 6n insurance

    Hi all, I need to know, are all 1.4cl stupidly expensive to insure? or is it just me? i got a quote from adrian flux for £5000 limited mileage, and £1250ish on one of those comparison site things. im paying £500 a year on my old car. but then again, that is really old. Any ideas? just to clear things up I'm 21 and have 0 no claims. and i think its been lowered, cant quite work that one out. oh and pirelli P alloys. but i dont suppose wheels make much of a difference. Thanks

    Mk2 Breadvan as First Car?

    Essentially I've been looking at these little beauties (Mk2 Polo Breadvan) for a while now and wanted to know if they would be a suitable first car? Also in terms of insurance where would I be looking, considering I'll be a new driver 18/19 years old. I'd like to get an older model so would I be able to qualify for classic insurance? Just read that somewhere. Thanks!!
