UPDATE: CAR INSURANCE WISH LIST

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT insurance scheme beats many others

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOT JUST GREAT PRICES
Of course price is VERY important but with Chris Knott you also get the following benefits thrown in that perhaps not everyone offers.

For a start, regardless of whether or not you ask us for a quote, we're here on the forum to interact and answer your insurance-related questions. Some providers only come on when they have something to broadcast.

We don't operate hard sell tactics. Instead we encourage staff to offer you top-quality personal service, sound advice and all the ongoing support you need throughout your time with us.

We tell them that your needs come first and they're to work hard on your behalf to find the policy that is most suitable for your requirements - even if it means we'll earn less. We want to treat you fairly – the same way we’d expect to be treated ourselves.

So to summarise:

• Competitive quotes
• Personal contact
• Sound and impartial advice
• Your needs put first - fair treatment
• All the ongoing support you need
• Claims process backup
• Loyalty rewards/Multi-buy discounts
• Highly-trained insurance experts
• 30 years' experience of looking after car club/forum members

If you'd like a quote under our special car club scheme please call Chris Knotts on 0800 917 2274 and quote your club's unique code. Not only should you save money but you'll also receive the extra Chris Knott benefits.

Thank You from Chris Knott Insurance

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

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

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

REMINDER: Chris Knott discounted Car Insurance scheme

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

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

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

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

MAIN CHRIS KNOTT PRODUCTS available to members:

* Car Insurance / Multi-car Insurance (extra discounts for more than one car) - phone for a quote
* Breakdown Cover - by phone or quote and buy online
* GAP Insurance - by phone or quote and buy online

OTHER USEFUL PRODUCTS FROM CHRIS KNOTT if you need them:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See you in a couple of weeks.

best regards,
Nick

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

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT MONTHLY PRIZE DRAW

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

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to talking to you.

best,
Nick

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

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

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

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

Three reasons to call Chris Knott this December...

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

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

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

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477

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

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

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

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


***************************
TESTIMONIALS

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

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

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

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

What club/forum members say about the Chris Knott car insurance scheme:

"Just insured the Sele with a lovely lady called Kathy. Beat all others by a few quid but with a lower excess. Nice friendly service and you get to speak to the same person." flyblo5, AlfaDriver.com

"I tried a few brokers on here and for me, every single one of them managed to beat any comparison site out of the park! Chris Knott and [one other] for me were some of the better ones in my particular case (price wise)." mr.raw, audi-sport.net

"I can vouch for these. Quoted £700+ by admiral for a renewal and £480 by Chris Knott as a new policy! Haven't had any problems whatsoever and always managed to speak to the same person when setting up my policy." JackW, civinfo.com

"Did the usual price comparison this morning on a well known non-meerkat website ;) Managed to get one quote which was about £90 cheaper than all the others, thought "fantastic! Nobody can beat that.....but I'll give the Briskoda Insurance a try". And sure enough, once (very quickly) through to one of the team, I got a quote which was £35 under the one from the internet! Best of all it covers pretty much everything I can think of, and only a small compulsory excess. In total it saved me £150 over last years premium PLUS about £350 extra excess not added. And Protected no claims to boot. Well done guys!" robt100, Briskoda

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

Happy New Year to you all.

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

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

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

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

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

best,
Nick

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

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

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

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

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

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 (01424 200477 for mobiles)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Phone Quotes v Comparison Sites

I often hear members say things like "Yeah, but you won't be able to compete with the price comparison sites will you? - I mean they're just so cheap". And my response is this...

Actually we're just as likely to beat an online price as any other. It's not a case that you should only go online when searching for quotes, just as it isn't necessarily going to work best for you if you only get phone quotes. The key is to try both - they're different offerings and either could come up with the winning quote for you as an individual.

Different deals exist for brokers that mean we can easily compete in the market, especially if there's a specialism like Chris Knott's for car club members (modified or standard).

Yes price is very important and we know that's normally the buying trigger but cheapest isn't always also the best. When you look at some of the companies listed on the comparison sites finding a contact phone number is difficult and there's no physical address available or they're based abroad - are you sure you're going to be able to get the advice and assistance you need when the time comes? Or are they keeping you at arm's length for a reason?

Will you get personal service and trusted advice from qualified insurance experts or just a call centre team with a script? Will you get the ongoing support you need as their client if you need to change anything or make a claim? How do their charges compare for adding mods, changing cars or an address, replacing a lost Certificate? There are alot of things you need to consider (without any help) when picking your insurer.

As a broker we have access to a panel of insurers who are specifically seeking car club/forum members because of your love for your cars and they'll quote accordingly. We'll advise you on which is most suitable for your needs and we also offer all the positive things mentioned above.

It may be then that by avoiding Chris Knott you're missing out on a better deal. Our price may be similar or better AND you'll get the service benefits by default - surely the extra value added would win in that situation?

I guess what I'm saying is don't just dismiss brokers and phone quotes. Give us a try in the mix. We could just as easily be the best option for your individual set of circumstances. Like we were for the clients quoted below if you want to see testimonials...

Of course, if you're anything other than Mr or Mrs Standard you might find it difficult to get a quote online at all and you'll need a specialist/someone you can talk with and explain things to anyway.

And if you get a quote by 31/5 you'll be entered for our Triple Supercar Prize Draw (details elsewhere in this forum section).

Best regards,
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:

"Moving to these chaps next month saved me £87 from the cheapest quote I could get from Compare the Market" Thom89, Astra Owners Network

"Couldn't recommend these guys enough. Beat the best quote I got online as well as my renewal" davidm5575, Fiesta OC

"Chris Knott almost halved my insurance! Just wanted to put this on here mainly for Chris Knott to see. Would really like to thank the team that sorted me out with my insurance for this year. My renewal was going to be £1286 this year from my current insurer which was an increase of £418... However, the good news comes in when I contacted CK who saved me: £25 from the best price I found at all the comparison sites I looked at; £123 from the price I paid last year; and a massive £541 from my renewal quote. So I just wanted to say a massive thanks." Snoop, Fiesta Owners Club

"Again managed to beat the best Confused.com quote for me, thanks!" fixitagaintomorrow, ClubCento

"Very happy with CK, got a cheap renewal quote. Better than the comparison sites. Nice staff. That spoke English - crazy I know right. And an all round great company to work with. Honestly amazed at how great they have been for me. Will defo stay with them!" John Ansell, Facebook

"I purchased my policy from you a couple of weeks ago - so much cheaper than my renewal quote, and still cheaper than the lowest quoted price from comparison site! :) good work guys!" 2k7smiffy, Juke Owners Group

"I tried a few brokers on here and for me, every single one of them managed to beat any comparison site out of the park! Chris Knott and XXXXXX XXXX for me were some of the better ones in my particular case (price wise)." mr.raw, audi-sport.net

"Wifey bought herself a nice 2.0 Mk IV Mondeo estate today & the quote from Chris Knott beat the comparison sites again, just like they've done for me the last 2 years running. £135 cheaper than her current insurer & cheaper than the cheapest deal on Go Compare, with a better level of cover. The staff even stayed late to call me back so I could get temporary insurance to pick the car up tonight - otherwise we would have had to delay picking the car up. Can't believe how good they are!" Brycie, VWAudiForum

"Insurance time again...used Chris Knott, all mods declared cheaper than best quote on two well know car insurance comparison websites....breakdown cover chucked in too." jamesy12345, Volvo Performance Club UK

"I've actually just taken out another car policy with Chris Knott. Once again a superb offer that couldn't be matched by online comparison sites." Deks, Juke Owners Group

"Cannot recommend ChrisKnottIns enough, excellent service and always beat the comparison sites. Thanks again for your help today guys." @danhans42, Twitter
