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

Quick question for Chris Knott insurace, I have a 2008 mk4 Ford Mondeo 2.0tdci and would like to make some changes.

At the Moment it has Privacy Glass, Sat Nav, Parking sensor, larger 18" wheels, which are all factory fitted.

I would like to add a remap of 20% from 142ps to 170ps, change the seats from the 2 way electric seats to 8 way with memory seats and possible add the Koni FSD shocks.

Insurance isn't due until November, I would just like to know if I would get these covered as my current car insurance company "Direct Line" is not interested in these changes not every something as take the seats from one Mondeo to fitting them to my Mondeo.

I know this is probably a dumb question but are you like a normal car insurance? And I'm looking to get a quote I've got a mk4 mondeo with the facelift bonnet and bumper can I get it insured with your company?

Mondeo mk4 (57) 2.0L TDCI panther black

Hi, Yes we're a normal provider of car insurance but we do specialise in car club/forum members particularly. We also help with modified cars so your bonnet and bumper mods will not be a problem. Please give us a call.

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.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Pete,

Generally within 30 days of your renewal date but it's best to call when you've got your renewal through so you've got something to bargain with.

Best,
Nick

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

***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

just a quick thanks to post here.

got my renewal through from Adrian flux & it was much higher than expected, quick call to you resulted in a considerable reduction over the current renewal

advised my current insurer of this this morning & half expected them to tell me it was goodbye - they asked all the questions possible to see if it was a like for like comparison & I seemed to be on hold for ages while they contacted the underwriter to see if they could compete.

Result came back that they could just beat you by £5 ( to say I was in shock is an understatement - they normally price match only :} ) so a big thanks from me for your time this year for finding a good quote for me that put the wind up the current insurers it seems lol.

we are steadily getting closer to me swapping side though, lets hope for next year :}

it was close yesterday when I rang but alas I still had to ring the current insurer to stop them auto renewing ( begger, forgot to tell em to remove that from this years policy :( ) so gave them the chance to correct things & that the underwriter did, it was considerably less in actual insurance costs from the underwriter but sadly AF's stonkingly high £35 admin fee sapped the rest of the savings leaving just a £5 difference now I have received my documents :( ( your admin fee is much more reasonable @ £20 :L )

I thought about ringing back up to see if you could go a tad lower / match it but I don't like to make a pest of myself, & I just wanted it sorted & done for another year.

if they play the same game next time then if you produce the very same results off the bat then too then I will just accept it & advise AF that they have lost me as your improving each & every year so far :L ( come a long way from advising me to take up AF's renewal as you could get nowhere near like a good few years ago )

tis either that or I break the car & buy a standard one & have done with £100+ hikes over standard policies everywhere else just to stay legal with cosmetic mods :( ( will still give you a ring though if I go this route but AF can go swivel if I have to go that way :} )

Guess which clubs/forums feature in Chris Knott's Top 20...

Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working for the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK.

We've compiled our Top 20 clubs/forums for the first half of 2015. The results are based on a combination of the number of quotes requested by the club, the number of new policies sold and then the % of quotes converted.

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 because you're very active with us.

If your club doesn't feature it's probably because the enquiry levels themselves are low - get asking us to quote and you could feature next time around!!

As car club members generally look after their cars better than the average driver, 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 a rigid computer calculation to win the business.

This is currently working best for members of these forums:

THE CHRIS KNOTT TOP 20

1. Alfa Romeo Owners Club
2. Volvo Owners Club
3. Saab Owners Club
4. Briskoda
5. CIVINFO
6. Z4 Forum
7. Mercedes-Benz Owner
8. Audi-Sport.net
9. BabyBMW.net
10. MR2 Owners Club

11. Fiesta ST Owners Club
12. MPS Owners Club
13. UK Passats
14. MG-Rover.org
15. Focus ST Owners Club
16. Civic Type R Owners
17. VR6 Owners Club
18. AlfaOwner.com
19. UK Saabs
20. Astra Owners Network

Thanks if you've already asked us for a quote. If you haven't yet, please do call us when your renewal falls due and include us in the mix of companies you get your quotes from.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477 - please mention this club/forum to receive the full benefit.

These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

"Just renewed mine again this week and it was cheaper than anywhere else I went to. Declared my mods too and changed my address with no cost. Brilliant." JackW, Civinfo

"Just spoke to a lovely lady called Kathy, and they got my quote down from £298 with Post Office to £200 all in. Money Supermarket were offering me £194 online, with a supposed £0 excess....via Esure/Sheila's Wheels. That I find hard to believe, and having been burnt before on these enticing offers (once they have you, they then load everything on - windscreen, legal, business use, etc). Kathy got me a great deal with what I wanted, £100 excess and all the other bits included!" jodonut99, Dacia Forum

"So far so good! Not only did they beat my renewal but they beat the lowest quote on the comparison website by a whopping £70. Saved over £200 on my renewal quote. Content of insurance seems great also. Hopefully I won't need to use them but hope all is well if I do! Thanks CK!" Watsona6, Briskoda

"Just insured my 530i with Chris Knott - they were £70 cheaper than my renewal cost from Admiral and beat the cheapest quote I could find anywhere else by £20, can't argue with that :) Kathy was very friendly and helpful on the phone and called back straight away when I was cut off by a thunder storm so I didn't have to go through all the menus and questions again, which was nice." lufbramatt, BMW 5 Series forum

"Just renewed my policy yesterday with CKI. Heres to another easy amd cheap 12 months" Jamie, Fiesta OC

"Big thanks to Rebecca at Chris Knott - having moved to an even more dodgy postcode my previous brokers wouldn't entertain renewing. Chris Knott matched me up to my previous insurers with the same cover as before. Excellent friendly service, and reminded me to get the rest of my documents sent in when I'd obviously forgotten!" Rebel Rebel, Volvo Performance Club UK

"Got my renewal from CKI at £800 which is cheaper than last year by £60. Shopped around online and got a quote for £640 so I thought I would have to leave CKI this year. A phone call to Milton and a few emails later he got back to me and said my insurance company will match the quote like for like for £640 aswell. All in all Milton just saved me £160. Calls centre are friendly and more than happy to help you and English based which is a big bonus. Here's to another year with @ChrisKnottIns :D:D:D" davidm5575, Fiesta OC

They say that if you wait long enough everything comes back into fashion. That's certainly what's happened with 0800 freephone numbers as, since 1st July, 0800 calls are now FREE on all mobiles as well as landlines.

We'll continue to advertise the Chris Knott geographic number (01424 200477) alongside our freephone number for a little while yet but you can start using our 0800 917 2274 number from your mobiles with immediate effect.

We look forward to your call if your car insurance is due for renewal soon.

You can use the same 0800 number for our Breakdown Cover, GAP Insurance and Home Insurance too.

best,
Nick

TESTIMONIALS
These guys called us and received great savings in the last few days:

"Year after year beaten all other quotes. This year managed to drop my renewal by nearly £150 and beating the competition! 5*" David A Dodgson, Facebook Review

"I'd like to take some time to thank Chris Knott Insurance for beating my renewal quote of £1554 by £150+. I've had my licence for over a year but didn't get insured straight away, so for 1 year's no claims around my postcode, that was a super saving. Even the choice of paying monthly was low, my original provider would have been in the 2k mark if I chose to pay monthly! Hopefully next year you will do the same and save me big £££. Thanks to Nick for setting this up :good:" Connolly3000, R32OC

"You guys just beat the cheapest quote with an insurer I've never heard of on GoCompare, with a decent named company and with my other half on the policy. Well pleased with that outcome. :)" scruffy_ Type R Owners

"3 years in a row now I've not had to move insurers." beckiejmc, Astra Owners Network

"I switched to them this year.. Beat all quotes I got plus offered more extras like 'Driving Other Cars'... hopefully same again next year" Thom89, Astra Owners Network

"I switched to you guys this year and you saved me over £300 compared to my renewal! Let alone the other quotes I had got." Ant21, Astra Owners Network

"Already have my car with CK, but wanted to see if I could get SWMBO's car cheaper when her renewal came around, CK beat it by £25. But then the mrs did some comparison sites and beat that by another £20. I really wanted her to go with CK, but thought "its already £45 less than her original renewal with her old company, the £25 off is probably as good as they can do".....but Ian had a look and managed to knock off a further £5 from the cheapest quote we found! :clap: So that's 2 cars (and another friend) all with Chris Knott. Thanks for the great service guys!" robt100, Briskoda

pretty disappointed to be honest been with you for one year with no problems till it came to renewal

when the quote I got was high meaning my direct debit payment was a lot more than expected and we are not talking a couple of pounds and also items that were included in the insurance last year I'm now being charged???

the main reason I went with you was because of the good reviews and I was hoping not having to keep moving from one insurance company to another because of the my insurance going up unfortunally that was not the case

after getting few quotes and getting some good deals I decided to see if you could match but you couldn't even come close so overall disappointed .

What's your name and postcode? If you PM me I can take a look and see why there's an increase. If nothing's changed in the last year your premium should be pretty similar.
