    Default Do you want the good news or the bad news?

    Hi, I thought you'd be interested in this even if your car insurance isn't due just yet but especially if it is! There's some bad news but there's also some relief at the end...

    The bad news
    According to an industry report last week, Comprehensive car insurance premiums are now at their highest levels since 2010.

    The report reveals that the average premium rose to £847 during Q2 of 2017. That's an increase of £66 or 8.4% across the last quarter and £132 or 18.5% across the last 12 months.

    The report cites 4 main reasons:

    1) the increase in Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), which has been going up since July 2015 and now sits at 12%,

    2) the marked reduction in the Ogden discount rate for personal injury awards,

    3) good old Brexit - insurers are seeing increases in the cost of vehicle repairs, fuelled by Brexit’s impact on car part prices, and

    4) greater repair complexity as the level of expensive technology in vehicles increases.

    The report claims there's no evidence to suggest the increases are going to abate. A £1,000 average premium is still on the horizon but is getting closer.

    There's some good news though...
    Chris Knott's average new policy premium is just £405 - less than half the national average according to the report. This is also a much shallower increase across the last year - only £14 (3.6%) and still bucking the trend.

    As a happy client recently said "This is my third year with @ChrisKnottIns and every year they beat all my other quotes for both cars that are modded. Many thanks again and keep up the good work and the prices down!" carcall, Audi-Sport forum

    Please give us a call for a quote to access these lower average rates for club members. You'll need to mention this forum to gain access to our 'Clubs & Enthusiasts scheme'.

    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.

    Feedback about Chris Knott Breakdown Cover
    It's not particularly recent this testimonial (last October) but I think it expresses really well how we'd like all customers to feel about our service and the cover...

    "I have had this breakdown cover for a few years and have had to use it three times. Every time it has been handled with alacrity and professionalism. I would thoroughly recommend this cover for anyone thinking about it. The service provided far exceeds the cost and is inexpensive peace of mind." lyserman, Mercedes-Benz Owner forum

    Why you should request a CK quote this Autumn...

    Hi, if you were thinking about using a club sponsor for your car insurance but weren't quite sure whether it would be worth it (whether we can compete) you might be interested in 2 things about Chris Knott...

    1. Personal service and attention coupled with competitive quotes.
    Chris Knott recognises that our car insurance quotes have to be competitive in order to win your custom. As we only work with car enthusiasts/club members we have access to insurer schemes that aren't available on comparison sites and the like. The result is a better policy sign-up rate for us and that's obviously down to you experiencing our personal broker service and liking our quotes.

    2. Our Awesome Autumn Draw.
    As has become customary in the run-up to Christmas, we have a competition running to encourage you to pick up the phone for a quote if your renewal is due in the coming weeks.

    PRIZE: WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas.

    How to enter: Simply request a Chris Knott Car Insurance quote between now and close of play on 30th November* for your chance to win. We'll automatically add you to the draw so there's nothing else for you to do but call us for your car quote - nice and simple.

    QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 - please make sure you mention this forum to access our special scheme.

    ONLINE: you can leave contact details at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuot...=AwesomeAutumn

    We'll make the draw on Friday 1st December so you can choose to either keep the voucher for yourself or there'll still be time to use it to sort your Christmas gifts to others.

    All the best,
    Nick

    PS. The draw is also open to existing Chris Knott clients due for renewal in the same period.


    **************
    More encouragement for you to call us - what others have said about us in recent days:

    "A huge thank you from me and my husband for getting so much money off our car insurance! I am seriously impressed and extremely grateful. Please send a copy of this email to your manager so that they know what a great job you have done! Have a great weekend." Mary D, Surecar

    "Thanks for beating my quote, giving me better cover and nearly doubling my mileage (allowance), including covering like for like mods. Happy man." Craig, New Mini Scotland

    "This is my third year with @ChrisKnottIns and every year they beat all my other quotes for both cars that are modded. Many thanks again and keep up the good work and the prices down!" carlcall, Audi-Sport forum

    "I'd like to express my appreciation for the way in which Rebecca dealt with changes to our insurance policies. Rebecca went well beyond her remit in finding a quote significantly cheaper than initially available, saving us ~£400, furthermore offering good advice and excellent service. I look forward to dealing with her in the future." Andrew C, Jaguar Forum

    "Well I got it sorted thanks to Kathy @ Chris Knott Ins, great service." TonyAVFC, FocusSTOC


    *Genuine quote requests only please - we reserve the right to request proof from the winner that the policy was actually due during the qualification period.

    Default Choosing your own repairer

    Choosing your own repairer.

    Hi,

    I was contacted recently by one of the clubs we work with. They were concerned about the issue of 'approved repairers' and they wanted to know what our insurer partners' stance would be.

    Clearly, most car club members wouldn't want just anyone repairing their pride & joy - you probably have a preferred bodyshop in mind already as you're reading this. And this is where the issue lies.

    If you have an accident and want to use your preferred bodyshop over the insurer's approved repairer, can you do it without penalty?

    We've heard that some insurers make it difficult by doubling the excess or not using genuine OEM parts. That's not what you want!

    I checked with our main insurers and they are very accommodating. They recognise that car enthusiasts like you will be more interested in who the repairer is and whether any parts are pattern or genuine.

    So I'm pleased to confirm that you are able to request that your preferred bodyshop is used. Where there's no reason not to use them i.e. they are not majorly uncompetitive, the insurers on our panel will be happy to accommodate your request.

    There will be NO increased excess and, wherever possible, the use of genuine parts will be approved.

    The only slight downside when you choose your own garage is that the insurers can't control whether your repairer has a courtesy car available. But I guess for many of you your club car is not your main vehicle and if that is a problem it's still possible they will have one available for you - it just can't be guaranteed by your insurer.

    If you like the sound of having the freedom to choose your own repairer please call us for your car insurance quote on 0800 917 2274.

    And don't forget, if you request your quote before 30/11 you'll be in with a chance to WIN a £250 AMAZON VOUCHER in time for Christmas, courtesy of the Chris Knott 'Awesome Autumn' Prize Draw.

    best,
    Nick

    Just to remind you of your chance to WIN a £250 Amazon Voucher if you request a Chris Knott Car quote before the end of this month.

    Good news for us and you is that we've already reached 37.3% of November's new business target after just the first 4 working days of the month! Thanks if you're one of those who've taken out Chris Knott cover.

    It's good news for you because it means we're obviously giving great quotes at the moment - if your car insurance is due in the coming weeks make sure you include us in the mix and see just how much you can save through the club/forum scheme.

    We like modern/classic/standard/modified cars, especially where you're a member of a group such as a car club or enthusiast's forum.

    Please give us a call on 0800 917 2274 - it's always better if you can call us when you're ready for a quote - or if it's more convenient for you please complete callback details using our online Quote Request Form.

    best,
    Nick

    More feedback about the Chris Knott savings, service and support:

    "Certainly my experience with CK has been extremely positive both with initial quotes and purchase and the following calls to add new mods. Only one of the 7-8 calls I gave them in a 3 month period ever resulted in a charge for adding new mods too. Although you really don't know til you have to make a claim they certainly work hard for your custom from my point of view." Lexo, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club

    "I just signed up this month through this club. Excellent quote with loads of extras and very low interest on monthly payments. I'm well pleased." NerysGT, GT86 Owners Club

    "I've been with Chris Knott for quite a few years including both the XE and the previous XF, plus my other runabouts. Also insured modified cars with them in the past with no hassle. Got my gap insurance through CKI as it was a lot cheaper than Jaguar's own quote and others, too. They've always been the best for service, speed and price especially if I advise them of other quotes elsewhere. To be honest, you should expect to have to barter a little with insurance each year. It doesn't take much time or effort." Pete McK, JagInfo

    "I'm with CKI and I find the service great, yes I get the renewal quote, I have a quick look online to compare and if I find cheaper with a 'recognised' insurer I would be prepared to use, I then call and let them know. They have always managed to equal or better the quote. Ultimately you pay your money and take your choice...I think I would rather be with a broker/insurer with a good reputation." dolphinfriendly, JagInfo

    "Used these guys on and off for years. Great personal service. They actually take an interest in your experience of similar cars to what you are insuring with them, ensuring your premium is fair. Better still, you can go back and haggle. They have beaten every alternative quote I put in front of them. UK based, polite and helpful, this alone goes a long, long way. Refreshing common sense insurance in a world of grief and headache." Tom Merriott
