  1. UPDATE: Best way to get a quote from Chris Knott Hi all, you're great at asking Chris Knott for quotes via the callback form on our website - thank you. I just wanted to make a request though - PLEASE CAN YOU PHONE US INSTEAD if you're after an instant quote. It's the quickest and easiest process for both of us and ensures you get your special club scheme quote when you want it, at a time that's convenient. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 Though we do respond to the web forms quite quickly, often we get an answerphone or no answer at all and then you ha
  2. Hi guys, you remember how we often run competitions and prize draws? Well, we wanted to check with you what you find the most attractive before we select this year's prizes. In the past we've offered £100 Amazon vouchers, Virgin supercar driving experiences, tickets to events such as the MotoGP or the Performance Car Show, Euro Car Parts vouchers and even professional Car Photoshoots. These and many of the ideas that you may like to suggest are all possible. Please just let us know what you'd like (within the realms of decency and reason). Just to give you s
  3. There have been a couple of items in the news in recent days about the cost of car insurance... One claiming that comprehensive car insurance premiums rose on average by 14% (£95) during 2016 and the other that men still pay more than women even though gender equality rules state insurers can't specifically use gender as a rating factor. Of course, on the question of gender there are other risk factors that produce the result - men tend to cover more miles and are more likely to drive for work, have sportier cars and more motoring convictions. Those are each rated on fo
  4. Hi and Happy New Year from all at Chris Knott Insurance one of this forum's preferred insurance partners for standard or modified cars. We're here to help you with all your car insurance needs - from answering questions to offering competitive quotes on car insurance, GAP Insurance and Breakdown Cover. As well as contacting us on here, you can call us on 0800 917 2274 or get in touch via social media - whether you're already a Chris Knott client or not.

  5. Hi, We're so grateful if you asked Chris Knott to quote for your car insurance this year. You should know that we don't take anything for granted. If you need us over Christmas please just check our opening hours below. We'll be operating on reduced staffing levels so please bear with us. In addition to the customary holidays, we'll be giving staff a couple of extra days off to rest and enjoy time with their families and friends - we wish the same for you as you celebrate (or don't). CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS: Friday 23rd December - Open 9am to 1
  6. UPDATE: AND THE WINNER IS... Put up the bunting, light the firework fuses and start the fanfare - we're announcing the winner of our latest prize draw. Our winner plus a friend will receive VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show (featuring Autosport International) at the NEC in January and all they had to do was ask Chris Knott Insurance to quote for their car insurance. They didn't even have to take up the policy to qualify. And that's certainly the case with this winner drawn at random from all the entries. Very many congratulations to Gordon Macmillan of
  7. UPDATE: Chris Knott's current Top 20 clubs and forums As the year draws to a close, here are Chris Knott's Top 10 and Top 20 club/forum rankings for 2016 as they currently stand. Though of course there are still a few weeks of 2016 left and all could change!! Remember, to feature in our Top 20 a club/forum will be producing a high number of quote enquiries AND Chris Knott will be converting a strong percentage into policies. There's a good argument that if you drive one of the cars on the list you're more likely to save money on your STANDARD/MODIFIED/MULTI-
  8. So, the AA released a report last month showing how much car insurance premiums have risen over the last 12 months. Apparently, premiums have gone up by 16.3% - an average of £82 per policy (£18 of which is due to the 2 IPT (tax) increases). The current average car insurance premium is now just pence below £586. Well, maybe they don't know about this special car club/forum scheme. Bucking the trend, I see that our quotes have only risen 3% (£13) on average over the year and our average premium now sits at just £391. I know members sometimes comment about having to get p
  9. Thought I'd just remind members that this is the last month of our awesome Autumn Prize Draw where you can WIN a PAIR of VIP Tickets to the Performance Car Show booked for Saturday 14th January 2017 (worth £250). All you have to do is get a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote before 01 December. We can quote 30 days ahead so if your insurance is due up to 30 December we can still quote you before the deadline. You'll have seen from our other posts that Chris Knott is currently saving car club members an average of just over £230 against their existing renewal and over £54 a
  10. Feedback about Chris Knott Don't just take our word for it when we say we're competitive and offer great service. Here is some of the recent unsolicited feedback we've received from your fellow car club/forum members and enthusiasts that shows why you should call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote: "Just a quick heads up that I found CKI a great company to deal with, all very polite & knowledgeable about their cover & understood about mods etc. Admiral = hard work & would not cover my Focus ST with basic mods but they did cover my modded import wrx!? Anyhow t
  11. 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 stil
  12. Just a reminder that if your car insurance is due before January you could WIN 2x VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show at Birmingham's NEC (plus entry to Autosport International) for Saturday 14th January 2017 courtesy of Chris Knott Insurance. This is a great prize for all you petrol-heads (worth £250) - just check out our previous post - you'll be impressed by how much the VIP tickets include and what a great day out you and a mate could enjoy. To enter, all you have to do is get a Chris Knott car insurance quote, for a vehicle we don't yet insure, between now and
  13. Hi, you'll be aware we regularly post examples of the feedback we receive and these are geared more around members' experience of our prices. But here's an unsolicited tale of the experience of one car club member who needed our help when his car was stolen... "Well as promised here is my review of the sad experience of having my pride and joy stolen. The MK4 VW R32 was stolen after what looks like a targeted burglary at my home. It was last seen with a group in the Bradford area. The car was apparently HPI checked in the weeks prior to the theft, and also the week after the theft.
  14. You’ll probably be aware that the former Chancellor (in November 2015's budget) levied a second increase in Insurance Premium Tax on unsuspecting motorists, bringing the duty up a further half a percent to a ‘nice’ round 10%. This following another recent increase from 6% to 9.5%. The new 10% rate comes into effect on 1 October this year. You'll be pleased to know that while we can't control the effect on car insurance premiums, Chris Knott Insurance is still going to be helping you where we can. We'll continue trying to beat your alternative quotes (which will also have been affec
  15. Here's your chance to WIN 2x VIP tickets to the Performance Car Show at Birmingham's NEC (plus entry to Autosport International) for Saturday 14th January 2017 courtesy of Chris Knott Insurance. The Performance Car Show is the leading UK exhibition dedicated to enthusiasts of sports and performance cars. It's the perfect place to see the very best high-performance machines in their full glory and Chris Knott wants to help you get there. At the show the winner and a friend can meet leading tuning companies, see the latest performance road cars, speak to club members, wat
  16. Hi, As well as offering members competitive car insurance, Chris Knott provides a couple of other products aimed at helping car enthusiasts like you to get back on the road quickly following an accident. One such product is our RTI/Finance GAP Insurance - we call it 'Combination GAP'. This pays the difference between your car's purchase price and your insurer's payout following a total loss/write-off. If you've got the car on finance and there's a greater amount owing, the policy pays this higher amount instead. Great news! Chris Knott GAP is available on al
  17. Hi, I've been on holiday for a couple of weeks so the Chris Knott Prize Draw was delayed a bit but we're now really pleased to be able to announce the winner of our most recent competition. To enter, all you had to do was request a quote from Chris Knott Insurance or renew an existing policy during June or July. The prize was a Car Photoshoot (courtesy of ImageFuel and worth £295), including a selection of the images taken on the day - Full Prize Details. The winner, selected at random, is Thomas Riley of Sheffield who renewed the cover on his '51 plate Audi A6 SE with

  19. Well, the figures can't lie - as promised here's the Chris Knott Top 20 car club forum rankings for the first half of 2016. As you know, Chris Knott Insurance specialises in looking after the insurance needs of car enthusiasts, working to help the members of around 200 car clubs/forums across the UK. To feature in our Top 20, a club/forum will be producing a high number of quote enquiries and we're converting a strong percentage into policies. It hints at the makes and models we're best at but not entirely as one club for the marque might be doing better than another cl
  20. I'd just like to thank every club member who has taken out car insurance through the Chris Knott Car Club Scheme so far in 2016. Every month (for the 7 months in a row) we've beaten our New Business target and we're now almost 10% ahead of where we expected to be. It's thanks to you and we're grateful. Already for July (the first 4 whole days) we've reached 26% of this month's target, you brilliant lot! We really do appreciate members giving us a try for their car insurance and finding out how much we can save them - and it's clearly working to everyone's benefit. If yo
  21. UPDATE: Reminder to quote the club/forum's unique code (above) When you call Chris Knott Insurance for a quote please remember to use the above code. This is how we can verify that you're calling from a genuine partner and therefore grants you access to our special insurance scheme rates for car club/forum members. So far this year we've beaten each month's target by quite a margin because our quotes are so good. The forum members below would certainly agree and there are many more testimonials like those which we haven't yet shared. Please incl
  22. UPDATE: Three winners chosen - are you one of them? We're very pleased to unveil the winners of our bonanza Spring Spectacular prize draw which ran from 1/3 to 31/5 and offered 3x very tempting prizes. The winners themselves don't even know they've won yet so this is the major reveal. To qualify, all they had to do was request a car insurance quote between those dates, so it's nothing strenuous - maybe you'll win a future comp on this basis. In fact, we've got one running from 1/6 to 31/7 - Chris Knott June-July Competition which is for both new AND existing
  23. NEW prize competition from Chris Knott Insurance Hi All, You probably know what's coming, as we're known for offering extra great incentives for members to pick up the phone for a quote. We know our premiums have to stack up too but we'll also reward you just for asking for the quote. The winners of the 3x Chris Knott Spring Spectacular prizes will be announced on here in just over a week but here are the details of our next prize draw running from 01 June to 31 July inclusive. For this one we've joined with automotive photography specialist Imag
  24. 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...
