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

A quick reminder that this is the final month of Chris Knott's Formula One competition - your chance to WIN 2x Grandstand Tickets for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Race Day (Sunday 16th July 2017).

HOW TO ENTER
Make sure you ask us for a car insurance quote before 5pm on 31st May and we'll instantly enter you for the draw.

We'll be including everyone who requested a genuine quote between 13th Feb (when we launched it on here) and 31st May.

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

ONLINE: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote


It's our aim to help you get a better car insurance deal so you'll be saying what these 3 happy customers have said in recent days:
"Just went back to buying car insurance the traditional way - over the phone speaking to a person - and I'm glad I did! Great service and the best price too." Neil J Sealy, Facebook

"Chris Knott with a club discount and all my mods declared. Even cheaper than any of the online big companies even before I asked them about mods. My last pre-mod insurer wanted £585pa with no mods, CK with Trajet brakes and SRI etc. declared - £400." Sherri Joyce, Hyundai Coupe Owners Club UK

"Chris Knott are absolutely fantastic - I can’t fault you in any way. When renewal comes you’ll be the first I’m coming to. You guys are great. You get 10/10 and you’re brilliant for my house insurance too." Barry Wilson, Civic Type-R Forum

Give us a call for a competitive quote and for great service and good luck in the draw!

best,
Nick

PS. If you're an existing CK client, you'll also gain automatic entry if your renewal is due within the qualification period (13 February 2017 - 31 May 2017).

AND THE WINNER IS...

Hi,

Thanks so much to every one of you who requested a car insurance quote to enter our Spring competition. Thanks also to our existing clients who qualified for entry when we invited your renewal.

I'm now pleased to announce the winner, drawn at random, of Chris Knott's prize draw. The winner receives 2x F1 British Grand Prix Grandstand Tickets (with circuit parking). Congratulations to Robert Ward, a member of Volvo Owners Club, who requested a quote for his S80 back in March.

We'll launch another competition shortly and run it on from this one so no-one misses out! So please keep calling - we'd love to quote you if your car insurance is due soon.

Here's a reminder of our number: 0800 917 2274 but we're also happy to call you if you PM me your number.

Please remember to mention this club/forum when you call to make sure you and the club receive the full benefit.

best,
Nick

Testimonials
Fresh feedback received from car club members recently:

"Got a good quote from you guys this year on the M3 cheaper than anyone else (price matched) like others have said a fair amount of paperwork to send off but it's not too bad to be honest and I found the staff to be very helpful too. Thumbs up from me a happy customer for the year." hopz121, Z4 Forum

"Superb service, more than fair prices after a haggle and its lovely to talk to a person in this country... Been with them about 10 years looking after most of our insurance!" Nick Walton, Multipla Owners Club

"Well that's me signed up for another year. Nobody could get close this year, well done CK." riven1962, C4 Owners Club

"I was involved in a no fault accident last year and expected my renewal to go up to stupid money, even though it wasn't my fault. Was really surprised with the quote and have now renewed for another year. Great service received, hope to be with you for many years to come. Cheers." ChrisG, Audi-Sport.net

"Quick and easy Insurance. Just renewed my annual insurance and was fed up with premiums increasing each year so I rang Chris Knott. Service was easy and quick and they managed to reduce my premium compared to other companies. Docs arrived on e-mail very quickly and once I had paid and provided proof of current NCB I had a nice tag to attach to my car keys so if they are lost they can be returned swiftly." Parsnipthecat, Briskoda

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

SOCGB Members' QUOTELINE: 0800 298 4071

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

"Matched another quote but benefits were loads better than other option." Kwackadave, MPS Owners

Right, straight in with it...

Congratulations to Philip Appleyard, a member of Volvo Owners Club, for winning our August draw. Philip has won a Platinum Supercar Blast plus High-Speed Passenger Ride or Photo. He gets track time in his favourite new supercar (6 to choose from) at his choice from 8 locations nationwide.

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.

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/chris ... inner.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 or call us on 0800 917 2274.

For Saab Owners Club GB members, the link is https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/saabrescue and the phone number is 0800 298 4071 instead.

Members of SOC have an additional special deal that's always available - cover at least one everyday/modern car and we'll add cover for one classic car free.

best,
Nick
