    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.

    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
    • 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

    Been quoted more than £200?

    Great news for this forum's members - the insurers on our panel are hungry for your business at the moment. They're backing us as we exploit our special car club/forum members scheme to quote what we need to in order to win your business (as long as you fit our usual criteria detailed below).

    On Friday night we'd already reached 35% of this month's target in just the first 4 working days of the month!

    *****************
    Here's feedback posted on our Facebook page on Friday alone:

    "A great company who care and find the best policies to suit you! Can't recommend them highly enough." Ray Fitchett, Facebook

    "Great deal for our car insurance - thanks." Helen Pengelly, Facebook

    "Great service from Chris Knott Insurance. Been with them for years and highly recommended, always gets the best car insurance for me." Willie McBey, Facebook

    "It is a good indication of the level of service I received last year, when I have not even looked at any other provider and will be renewing with Chris Knott next week. First rate service plus unbeatable value - it's kind of unusual this day and age." Peter Robinson, Facebook

    "Thanks for a great price on my car insurance!" Shirley McGreal, Facebook

    Wow, what a great response to our 'quoted more than £200?' post above - thank you to all those who've asked us to quote so far.

    As a broker we're the offline version of price comparison websites - and we often beat their rates by assessing you as an individual. Why not give us a call even if you normally prefer to get your quotes online? Give us the chance to help you save some money.

    These guys have benefited from picking up the phone in the last few days:

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

    "All credit where due. I PM’d Nick my number, got a call shortly thereafter and got a quote that well and truly beat the best I’d found, so well done." drmw, Mercedes-Benz Owners forum

    "I've just insured our 3 cars with Chris Knott and they saved me nearly £200 on the Aviva renewal figure. More importantly the service was great. Spoke to a lady called Kathy and she was really helpful. Worth a try!" weefossy, New Mini Scotland forum

    "Well I phoned Chris Knott Insurance. My renewal [elsewhere] was £602 (lot more expensive than last year) down to £335. So very happy. Cheers." marksimy72, TalkFord.com

    "Spoke to Kim about getting a quote for my ST before the weekend who was extremely polite and very easy to talk to on the phone and also listened to everything I had to say and gave a very good price, with Europe cover for 90days, handy as off to Eurodisney soon... ...Not like some companies who seem to just try and get a quote out as quick as possible while not listening." Chiffs, Focus ST Owners Club

    "@Chris_Knott_Ins thanks for the cheap cover! Much better policy and £150 cheaper than anywhere else." @Rich_UTM, Twitter
    (Please follow us on Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/Chris_Knott_Ins)

    and then this came in on Facebook overnight:

    "Had to comment on the always excellent service from Chris Knott, you insure all 4 of my Volvo's, (from Classic to relatively modern), and always the best price and service. In fact for the most recent purchases I haven't even bothered getting other quotes - I know you'll be the best! Special thanks to Rebecca who has done the last 2 cars for me - brilliant service and always a pleasure to deal with on the phone. Keep up the good work - and thanks again." Graeme Aiken, Facebook
    (Please LIKE us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns)

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

    We really enjoy our jobs, trying to help car club/forum members get the best deal :)

    If your renewal is due soon please call us on 0800 917 2274 and mention this forum to get the full benefit (01424 200477 for mobiles).

    Thanks,

    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

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

    More feedback found this week...

    "CK have pulled out all of the stops to give me a great price this year! Well made up!" Ryan-H, R32 Owners Club

    "I would also recommend you speak to Chris Knott for other types of insurance too. I recently moved my House Insurance and saved over £900 :) - with my car insurance that's £1400 I've saved this year by moving over." NeRo, zroadster.org

    "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

    "Very impressed with the service and for beating my renewal quote by a healthy margin. Also insured my Favorit through yourselves as the policy was £200 cheaper than anywhere else! I'm very impressed and hopefully I will keep using you guys in future. Thanks." pierst1, Briskoda.net

    "Another new customer here, they saved me about £85 on the renewal price, happy days...." fabmar, FiestaST OC

    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.

    ***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

    Calling all EK9.org members!!

    As a car club/forum member you could save money on your standard/modified/multicar insurance when you ask Chris Knott to quote.

    The current sign-up rate under our special scheme for car club members is 45% - that means we win the business on almost every other quote offered. It means we're regularly beating the likes of Admiral, Direct Line, other brokers and online price comparison sites too.

    It also means you've got a great chance of getting your best quote by giving Chris Knott a call. Why not give us a try this year and find out how much you could save by switching to the club's approved provider, Chris Knott.

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

    best,
    Nick

    These club members are happy with their recent quotes:

    "I've just quoted on the temp c max and had a smoking deal, had discount for being on the forum and another for second car. £240 comp protected no claims, on the c max (remember technically I've had my licence 1 year and me named on Nicci's policy). I'm paying for both cars what I was just paying for the v70r p2 last year, so it worked out good for me." Ettienne, Volvo Performance Club UK

    "Have rang around the insurance companies that are sponsors on the forum. Chris Knott came out cheapest." ChrisST225, FocusSTOC.com

    "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

    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

    Chris Knott - better prices than most?

    According to a recent survey by the AA, motor insurance premiums fell by 1% during Q1 of 2015 - the average UK comprehensive motor insurance premium being £530.47 with the direct brokers and price comparison sites.

    I'm pleased to let members know that the Chris Knott average premium is well below that at just £357.63 for Q1 - £172.84 less than the national average! So please give Chris Knott a call when your car insurance is due for renewal to see how much you could save through our special car club/forum scheme.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477

    Thanks,
    Nick

    PS. Don't forget that all car insurance and home insurance new quotes upto 31/5 are automatically entered into the Chris Knott draw to win a Triple Supercar Driving Experience, so pick up the phone today if you'd like a quote. We'll be closed as normal on Bank Holiday Monday.

    TESTIMONIALS
    Recent feedback from happy customers that supports how good the Chris Knott scheme is:

    "Just smashed all other companies out the water with my quotes. Will be taking the policies out later this week. Can't get over all the discounts they offer. Ridiculous value." Richard Tungate, Facebook

    "Well what can I say :D This is my 2nd year with yourselves. Fantastic communication with lots of help with sending email. Always answered each question so that I made sure that I understood it all. Matched my quote from elsewhere which was very competitive :) Thanks to all who I spoke to and big thank you to Dawn." puma2, MR2 Roadster OC

    "I'm with you guys for my Cupra insurance and can't fault the service on all aspects. Obviously all my mods are declared but even so the cost of my premium is excellent so top marks deserved." KebabWarrior81, SeatCupra.net

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

    "I got a letter from my last insurer that they could no longer quote for me, I'm assuming simply because my car was over 25 years old with declared mods so I went online and got a grand total of 11 quotes including one of £9.5k! So let's call that 10 quotes. Given that last year I had over 50 that's quite a drop. However, I have a couple of extra things I want to do and as soon as I added more mods I got 0 quotes, that isn't a typo...zero quotes! I tried a few classic car specialists but they all wanted me to limit my mileage and considering I do ~13k annually that wasn't an option so I tried Chris Knott and although my car isn't on a classic policy because of the mileage they did at least quote me a reasonable price with all mods declared (that includes planned mods) and the paperwork was reasonably painless." DT1, Scirocco Register

    "I shopped around but got a better deal with Chris Knott" swinton, Antara Owners Club

    "I amended my policy with mods today. Simple and easy over the 'phone conversation. Milton called me back within 45mins with the quote, and it's all taken care of. It wasn't super expensive either! Thanks again for great service." MR TWO, MR2 Roadster OC

    "Been a happy customer for 3 yrs now. Always beaten my best quote." Mark Underwood, Facebook

    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

    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
