If you're looking forcompetitive car insurance, high service levels and all the ongoing support you need, we've got some great news for you.

CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCEnow offers Yeti OC members all of the aboveand more.


WE LOVE CAR ENTHUSIASTSbecause you really look after your cars.

Here's what members have said about us on some of the other forums we work with:

"I've just saved £230 on 2 cars by returning to Chris Knott for 12 months - my Civic, plus wife's A1.
Well done Kim. Some other companies do seem only to take you seriously for 1 year."
Jimm, Civinfo


"Signed up for a great deal in March, declared mods, total cover and the cheapest quote by far. I would
highly recommend Chris Knott. They were very easy to deal with over the phone and had
that personal touch which was nice. Give them a try guy and girls. Very competitive prices
with great levels of cover."
87carter, Ford Mondeo OC


"Call centre staff are great to deal with - many of whom seem to have a genuine interest
in modified cars too. So much easier when explaining your modifications list!"
radion_auto, mg-rover.org

We'd like to get involved on this forum and be available for general insurance comment too. If you're not sure about any element of our offering, please just ask - we're looking forward to talking to you.

For your free car insurance quote, call Chris Knotts on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) quoting CODE: YOC-156 and find out how much you could save.

Of course, we have our own set of criteria so we won't be the best for everyone. If we can't help you it's not because we don't want to. However, if you fit our scheme we'll work hard on your behalf to negotiate the best deal with insurers and that sometimes involves using an alternative quote as ammo to get them to budge.

We only quote over the phone as we've found online forms are never as good as the human touch.

When you call us we get a better feel for you as a risk and this results in a better quote for you - we currently sign up one in every 3 enquiries. Will the next one be you?

Will you be saying what this happy customer said?:


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

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

Your needs are put first and we'll work hard on your behalf to find the policy that is most suitable for your requirements. We want to treat you fairly ""“ the same way we'd expect to be treated ourselves.

To ensure that you get a crystal-clear quote and the right price/cover combination, call us FREE at renewal so our highly-trained insurance experts can help.

UPDATE: CHRIS KNOTT now quoting M, L, OL and SK1-12 postcodes

If you live in any of the above postcodes you'll know that it used to be difficult for us to quote you under the club insurance scheme.

The good news is that insurers have agreed to open up these postcodes to us.

Some of the very risky areas are still not available to us (in reality there aren't many of those) but we can quote competitively on the rest. There are sometimes overnight parking requirements attached to the quotes but this is a big step forward in the right direction.

Regardless of your postcode area, if you've not yet given the Chris Knott Insurance club scheme a try please do so or if you have tried us in the past and we couldn't help you - chances are that we'll be able to help now.

Please call FREE on 0800 917 2274 and put us to the test.

Here's what Kris, a member of STdriveRS forum, said recently:
"Guys, definitely worth calling Chris Knott, my renewal with Esure was £273, which I was extremely pleased with. Contacted both Chris Knott and [a competitor] because of this forum. Unfortunately [the competitor] said they couldn't beat it, and when CKI called me back I wasn't expecting them to either and even told the lovely lady on the phone this, but we still went through all the details. Then I waited 2 minutes whilst she got me the price, when she came back on I was expecting "sorry, but...", but no, was pleasantly surprised to hear "we can do it for £240". Absolutely stoked, and when my wife's insurance is up for renewal in the next few weeks CKI will be my first port of call too." Krisby, STdriveRS.co.uk

More exciting news coming on Monday...

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

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

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

jmayna, Abarthisti forum

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.

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

UPDATE: a note about competitiveness

Looking at the YTD figures Chris Knott Insurance has won 38% of all new quotes offered during 2015. That's really good and means we're frequently beating the best rate that members can find anywhere else.

And, if you thought that was just a ploy to attract new clients and then hike the rates in year 2, you'd be wrong - we keep 82% of policies at renewal. This is because we try to offer consistent pricing (as long as there have been no claims or other changes during the year). We're all about trust and long-term relationships, not wildly fluctuating quotes.

Please give us a call if your insurance is due soon and we'll do all we can to find you the best deal - sometimes that involves using your best alternative quote to negotiate with the insurers who are vying for your business.

To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott you should call 0800 917 2274 (now FREE for mobile phones too).

If you call before the end of September we'll also enter you for our current prize draw to win £150 mods/parts/accessories of your choice - see our other posts for details.

best,
Nick

Feedback about Chris Knott's prices and service, gathered in just the last week...

"Just wanted to give a shout out to all the people at Chris Knotts, not only did they beat my renewal quote but also improved on the offerings, and that was including the fact my previous best had an extra 10% off for my dashcam! Top knotch service and an unbeatable price, thanks guys and gals!" spikedog, MPS Owners

"Well after the hunting and chatting to a few folk, then receiving my renewal quote from Sheila's Wheels which has mysteriously jumped up £100 without any mods declared. I called Chris Knott. Had a chat with the lovely Cathy and taking into consideration the mods that have and are being done got a quote of £200 less than Sheila's who were very concerned about the mods and really did not really understand the mod issue. Hastings jumped dramatically when I mentioned the mods especially the uprated front brakes going on next month so I dropped them out. All in all I have a much better policy, declared mods, better excess and other addon's for £440. Which when you consider my Coupe is parked on a London residential street at home is not bad." Shel, Hyundai Coupe OC

"Just changed my car and had a pleasant and effortless time on the phone doing it. As I spoke the lady was simultaneously emailing my new documents over. Premium should have gone up a bit but no charge, swapped my GAP insurance over to my new car as it had over two years to go and all for a modest £15 admin fee. Got off the phone with all new document printing out of my printer and a smile on my face as I was braced for spending out £100 or so. Highly recommend." dagdave, CMax OC

"I'm with Chris Knotts myself now since there's a fair chunk of mods on the car these days. Think it was Cathy I spoke to as well when I called, pleasant and no faffing around :) Well, no faffing at their end, I called back about 3-4x as kept remembering more mods." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe OC

"You beat my previous insurer by £200 with the modifications declared and so easy to deal with. Many thanks." Sherri Joyce, Facebook

"ALSO a HUGE thanks once again from me! Did a shop around with another company, they sent me [their] quote cheaper, Knott were sent this quote and matched (even beat it by £20), so this is the FIRST TIME in over 16+ yrs of driving I've ever paid for a policy in one go! Very happy again. Cheers guys." vwnutant, UKPassats

"Rang you up today and you beat my best quote so I insured through you. Thanks." Outofthi5world, Briskoda

According to the British Insurance Premium Index, car insurance premiums have again risen during the third quarter of 2015 - this time by 4.8%. The index quote has increased to £569 (a rise of nearly £26 over the three months ending 30th September).

I'm pleased to say that because we attract safer drivers, such as car enthusiasts like you, the Chris Knott average premium currently sits at £337, some £232 lower than the index.

But it's not just cost savings that Chris Knott offers...

UPDATE: £56 CAR INSURANCE SAVING WITH CHRIS KNOTT

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you to all the members who've used us for their car insurance already this year. Last month we had our best February EVER and it's all down to you - Chris Knott's best February in 33 years of helping car club members save money on their car insurance!

I had a look at the 2016 figures on Thursday and the average saving we negotiate for a car enthusiast is £56*.

That's £56 less than the best alternative quote a member can find. Some save more, some save less of course but it's a good message and means it's worth picking up the phone to request a Chris Knott quote when you're looking around at renewal.

Don't forget if you're due in the next few months, that you can gain entry into our Spring Spectacular with 3 great prizes on offer (http://www.chrisknott.co.uk/rewards/2016/spring/) just for receiving a quote. See our other recent post about getting a quote and winning.

For your no-obligation quote please call Chris Knott FREE on 0800 917 2274 (free from mobiles too).

To get the full benefit of club membership please mention this forum specifically when you call.

Thanks,
Nick

TESTIMONIALS
Further recent proof that our special club scheme has value in the car club community:

"Just set up my insurance with Chris Knott earlier today. Did the usual trawl through Gocompare and Confused to set the benchmark and then had a call from Kathy at Chris Knott. They came back and bettered the lowest quote by £30 but also provided much better cover by not limiting the miles (£335 all in)." SparkyBrum, Z4 Forum

"The service I received when I had the quote was excellent and Chris Knott seems to have a good reputation on car forums." hineyho87, FiestaST OC

"Well you guys had the cheapest quote so I'm going with you. Cancelled my Sky policy just now." rob275, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

"Excellent service from Chris Knotts - told them a week ago I was in the process of purchasing a private plate, the guy on the phone said because I informed them early the £15 it would've cost to amend the paperwork will be waived, well happy." deni.babe, CivInfo

"Just phoned up after receiving a pathetic renewal quote. Really impressed by the service and the quote I have received." aslee17, AlfaOwner forum

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



*£55.98 to be exact - the average difference between our quote and the member's best quote (from shopping around or their existing renewal, whichever was the cheaper) where best alternative quote information was provided.

It's amazing how many of the testimonials we receive start with the word "Just" - some examples of this month's feedback:

"Just bought my insurance with CKI, very competitive prices... Many Thanks." benv6, Z4 Forum

"Impressed with your super-efficient service today, instant docs by email and helpful staff. Better than the big boys!" @nsales_co_uk, Twitter

"Many thanks. Quick service and very competitive quote. Makes it easier when you speak to the same person again." rustynuts, Briskoda

"Just had my quote for the first time from CK. Could not beat my best comparison quote [initially] but were only £3 more than the cheapest. However once you take in to account all the free extras they threw in it beat Tesco bank hands down. They're calling back Tuesday morning to set it up. Very pleased, thankyou!" badake, Ford Galaxy Owners Club

"Just renewed with you guys today. Great price and policy cover. Thanks :)" SpecBee, UK Legacy Forum

"Great service. Just a quick thanks to the guys at Chris Knott - Emma who I dealt with in particular for her work in getting my quote down to a price I'm very happy with. Best quote I've had for the second year running, great price for the level of cover and modifications on the vehicle. Top work!" AW_Dan, Baby BMW

"Just bought a new policy with you today, very pleased as came in 20 pound under the lowest comparison site quote. Will be trying you when I need insurance on the 4x4 and the girlfriend's car. Cheers!" Tricky5, BimmerForums

"Another new customer! Great service and knowledge, also beat my renewal and my cheapest online comparison quote. Cheers." ChrisG, Audi-Sport net

Thankfully in these examples "Just" means 'recently' rather than 'by a whisker' as we won't simply beat your alternative quotes by a pound - where we can we'll try to make it worth your while to go with our offering.

To request your quote please call us free on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum's unique code (detailed in a previous post) to receive the full benefit.

Remember, if you call us during May for a quote on a car we don't yet insure you'll gain automatic entry in our Spring prize draw. Check out the 3 great prizes here - www.chrisknott.co.uk/rewards/2016/spring/ and get calling if your car insurance is due soon.

best,
Nick

UPDATE: Current savings data from Chris Knott

Hi guys, I was just looking at some MI and a couple of figures really stood out. I believe they're powerful reminders of why members should include Chris Knott when looking for car insurance quotes...

The first one is where customers have told us their existing insurer's renewal quote Chris Knott has been quoting an average of £230.12 less than their renewal - that represents a 37.12% average saving.*

Even when we compare our quotes with their supplied best quote (including those on comparison websites) it's still a worthwhile saving - an average of £54.89 less than the best available alternative (11.94%)**

If you'd like to save money on both what you're paying now and the best out there in the market make sure you include Chris Knott Insurance in the mix at quote time.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

best,
Nick



* I compared the year-to-date total of all supplied renewal prices against the total of the CKI quotes on those and divided by the number of quotes. I included all quotes whether the customer ended up taking the policy or not.

** I compared the year-to-date total of all supplied best quotes (renewal or alternative) against the total of the CKI quotes on those and divided by the number of quotes. I included all quotes whether the customer ended up taking the policy or not.



PS. Don't forget you can enter our draw for 2x VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show at the NEC if you receive a car quote before 1 December 2016.

Recent client testimonials also reflect our money-saving ability:

"Just took out a policy with you for my new fiesta ST200 which I'm collecting in a few days time. Miles cheaper than the price Ford quoted me as part there drive away insurance and nearly £100 cheaper than I'm paying now on a fiesta ST3. One happy New customer." John74, Fiesta ST Owners Club

"Did a quote; quote came out better than any comparison site figure, and I'm now insured through yourselves! Nice to speak to someone on the end of the phone that was able to answer my questions so quickly. Great service! Thanks!" Ryanfsr, Briskoda

"Just got a quote off Chris Knott for a W202 C220 CDi and it was actually lower than all the search engines! They've been good to me in the past with my Volvo 850 and V70 T5 CD Autos so will always use them. Cheers guys :)" RGM, Mercedes-Benz Owner forum

"Chris Knott Review - Give them a go! That dreaded time of year... insurance renewal! It all started off with a comedy email from Admiral about my multicar renewal... a healthy £500 more than last year :lol: So I did the usual "new customer" thing with them and it still wasn't great... Then did the comparison site and a few better quotes came up... Then I decided to give Chris Knott a bash and see what they could do. Best decision I made! Rang their number (0800 917 2274) and quoted our CLUB CODE: MAZ-216 and had a good chat with the nice lady Rebecca on the other end. After we'd gone through all the details she gave me a pretty decent quote, competitive with the cheapest I'd already found. I did however want breakdown as well on the 2 cars and so she asked me to leave it with her and she'd email me in the morning with the best she could do. Well... I was happy to open that email! Not only had she got me the breakdown for the 2 vehicles but she'd beaten the price even more! Very happy with the service and prices and so I have taken out 2 policies with them this year... one for myself and one for my wife :) Give them a shot guys and see what they can do for you. Very helpful and you don't get pushed into a long queue to get through to a call center in a country you can't understand! Not just that but if any of you do take out a policy with our club code (MAZ-216) then the club gets some commission which will go directly into the pot for keeping this site up and running :) Let me know how you get on if you give them a go." Ross, Mazda6 Owners Club

"Easiest car insurance I have had in 40 years. Even an added mod recently was sorted with just one email and a reply within 24 hours. Awesome!" Shel, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

Just looking into GAP insurance, but after checking the quote on your website, there doesn't seem to be any options to vary:

(a) Length of time of cover
(b) Type of insurance cover ie back to invoice or vehicle replacement
(c) Level of cover

Are any of these variations obtainable please Chris?

Thanks

Hi, it's a 3 year term only on our GAP and the cover is a combination product. It covers both Finance and RTI GAP scenarios (whichever leaves you with the bigger shortfall to cover). We're working on the provider to see if we can get a Replacement Vehicle cover and offer alternative periods of cover but I guess that might not be soon enough for your requirements.
