Re: Offer 1 : Fiat Forum Insurance Save up to 15% on your best quote!

Hi,

The BBC News website reports:
"Drivers saw their car insurance premiums rise by an average of 110 in the last year, a comparison site says. More expensive repairs and recent government changes to injury payouts pushed up annual insurance costs by 16%, according to Confused.com. It found drivers paid on average 781 on comparison sites for a comprehensive policy in the year to March 2017. Average premiums are set to rise to a record high and could pass 1,000 next year, it added. Newer vehicles have seen some of the biggest rises, because their increasingly complex electronics have made repairs more expensive...

...The Confused [dot] com research...checks more than four million car insurance quotes."


I just wanted to let you know that the Chris Knott average premium through the club insurance scheme is much lower than that reported on the comparison sites.

In March 2016, Chris Knott's average premium was less than half that at 369. This March (2017) it was 399 - just a 30 increase and still majorly more economical than 781. There's definitely something beneficial for members in using the club scheme through Chris Knott then.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please call us at renewal.

If that's before 1st June you'll also gain entry in the Chris Knott 'British F1 Grandstand Tickets' Prize Draw.

best,
Nick

Recent testimonials from CK customers across the car enthusiast community...

"367 cheaper than my renewal from flux, 65 cheaper with no limited mileage & all mods covered after shopping around. I am a happy bunny thanks." G30001, R32 Owners Club

"Had my quote matched today so new CK customer on Saturday as of renewal time. Covers all the mods that are planned from the stockpile of parts in the garage that have been collected over the last few months... Spoken to 3 different ladies (Tabitha, Kathy (of Legend) and Rebecca) and the level of customer service has been consistently brilliant with everything being understood first hand and not needing to explain what each mod is." benmellor, GT86/BRZ Drivers Club

"Thank you Daryl for matching a cheaper quote from another insurance company. Guess I will be staying with Chris Knott for another year. " Jon Dixon, Facebook

"I may need to hop back to chris knott insurance when my renewal comes through early next month, made the mistake of hopping over to a cheaper provider who has extortionate admin fees." sliced, Audi-Sport.net

"Recently taken a policy out with Chris Knott due to the very competitive quote. I needed to call them to change my reg number as I added my private plate to my car, I braced myself for the "well there's a charge for this and a charge for that" as experienced from other insurance companies, but no! Gave them the new number and that was that, no charge! Well done, credit where it's due!! stchris356, BimmerForums

Re: Offer 1 : Fiat Forum Insurance Save up to 15% on your best quote!

Well I called and you quoted me 30 cheaper than my current insurer BUT upped my excess to 150 where my current one is 0.

You stated that you can't do 0 excess which is strange for an insurance broker..... ?

I'm 47, no convictions or accidents and maximum no claims discount.

Hi Zeewulf, thanks for giving us a go and I'm glad we beat your best alternative.

It's not strange at all for a broker to have arrangements with insurers where there's a minimum compulsory excess that isn't as low as zero.

Did you mention your concerns when you spoke to our technician?

best,
Nick

You didn't though, If i'd made a claim I'd have been 120 worse off. 315 + 150 excess vs 345 + 0 excess = current insurer is the better deal in the event of a claim not Chris Knott....

Yes, she just stated we don't do 0 excess again. If i'd had known you don't do 0 excess I wouldn't have wasted my time calling

My attitude is if i'm paying for insurance I don't want to be paying a set sum to fix my car if I make a claim. That's what Insurance is for.

The excess will protect an insurer from minor claims. With zero excess you could claim for a 250 scratch. With a 100 excess you probably wouldn't bother claiming for such a small amount.

I see your point but when you have a potential customer with Maximum No Claims discount (i.e. hasn't made a claim in over 10 years) then you'd think you could at least take a slight risk and offer them a 0 excess ??

The insurers require it so it's not something we're even able to take a view on as a broker, even on a case by case basis. You could be the absolute perfect risk and we'd still have to include an excess to satisfy them I'm afraid.

Re: Offer 1 : Fiat Forum Insurance Save up to 15% on your best quote!

So, 3 cool things I need to let you know about before I can go on holiday tomorrow...

1. Platinum Supercar Blast plus High-Speed Passenger Ride or Photo - yep, we're running a competition for August. Just ask us to quote for your car insurance this month to gain automatic entry in our draw to win a race track drive in your choice of 6 new supercars at one of 8 track locations nationwide. We'll pick a winner in early September.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274

2. Our Virtual Show & Shine on social media continues (see separate thread). We're inviting all members to post pics of your shiny cars on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. You need to tag us, tag your club and use the hashtag #ShowShine2017 to qualify. We're offering a prize for the best pic - an Auto Finesse Detailing Kit - 14 items of high quality car cleaning product worth 156.

LINKS: https://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns | https://www.twitter.com/ChrisKnottIns

3. A reminder about GAP Cover from Chris Knott - this is our combined RTI/Finance GAP cover which is significantly cheaper than that offered by car dealers when you buy a car. Check out our cover which fixes your new/nearly-new car's invoice value for 3 years after purchase, meaning you get a better payout in the event of a total loss incident. It'll give you the difference between your motor insurer's payout and the original invoice price or any outstanding finance - whichever is the greater amount - to make sure you can start again, wiping out depreciation.

Have a look, get a quote, or buy online, at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP.

Thanks for reading and I'll see you in a fortnight - a greek beach beckons!

best,
Nick

"Matched my previous quote but with a lot more extras free - spot on and great staff." t500tty, MPS Owners Club

"Been with Chris Knott for about 3 years (been with them for various cars over the years, never had a problem)." Dennis, FocusSTOC

Re: Offer 1 : Fiat Forum Insurance Save up to 15% on your best quote!

ANOTHER CHRIS KNOTT COMPETITION
If you like the idea of winning one of our prizes we do have another competition running at the moment - the Chris Knott Virtual Show & Shine which has been going on all Summer on social media.

Simply post a pic of your car with the theme 'Shine' and we'll judge the winner after the closing date but be quick, the closing date is this Thursday!!

Post your pic on either our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages and do these 3 things in the comments...

- @tag Chris Knott Insurance
- use hashtag #ShowShine2017
- @tag your club/forum

We'd love to see your cars!

All this is just a distraction of course - what we'd really like you to do is give us a call for a quote when your car insurance falls due.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please mention this forum to access our special club scheme

Re: Offer 1 : Fiat Forum Insurance Save up to 15% on your best quote!

Hi, two things quickly -

1. COMPETITION
You'll know we've been running the 2017 Chris Knott Virtual Show & Shine on our social media channels - the chance for members to share pics of their cars with us in the hope of winning a decent prize.

We've really loved seeing what cars members drive and from the 200 or so entries it was a tough job to pick a winner. However, I'm pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Chris Knott Virtual Show & Shine as Ashley Gratton with his MkI Golf.

Full details including the Top 5 finalists' cars here: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/news/ch...17-winner.html

2. OFFER ON CHRIS KNOTT'S UK BREAKDOWN COVER
Just to let you know that the current offer is about to expire so you'll need to get in quick if you'd like to benefit. Our comprehensive cover starts at 63 but you can get an extra 5 OFF until the end of September.

Request a quote and buy online at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/rescue using Promo Code 'FORUM5' or call us on 0800 917 2274.

best,
Nick
