Hi to all!

This forum have been in discussion with ourselves about an insurance scheme for registered users on here. We are glad to say that we have signed the deal so I'd just like to introduce myself & our company!

Chris Knott Insurance - http://www.chrisknott.co.uk - have been involved with car clubs for over 20 years so hopefully we'll understand your needs & requirements!

The scheme is for both standard and modified cars with cosmetic changes and bhp increases by no more than 50bhp.

It starts for ages 30 and over, and you must have at least 1 year's NCB – no introductory discounts are allowed.

All drivers must have held a full UK licence for at least 1 year, and to insure a 'performance' car, there must be at least 1 years experience of driving that car or one of an identical group. Unfortunately, the scheme is not competitive on all M - Manchester, L - Liverpool, OL - Oldham & SK1-12 - Stockport postcodes, and excludes Northern Ireland.

No more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction offence per driver and no fault claims in the last 12 months.

We consistently have a high renewal retention rate meaning that people renew with us because of our constantly competitive insurance premiums & experienced, reliable customer and claims service. That is why we can promote this insurance scheme knowing that we are in it for the long term.

I'll view the site regularly and try to answer any queries that you have also.

In the meantime, please feel free to call the New Business Team when you receive your renewal through. A dedicated team, with years of experience, is waiting for your call! (I personally don't do the quotes).


0800 917 2274 or 01424 200477 (if phoning by mobile) & please don't forget to quote the reference found in my signature below and the club name!

Hi
Sorry, all drivers must have had a full licence for 1+ years on the scheme (and also it is not competitive in L postcodes).

What is your policy on mods and trackdays? My current insurer is very good with mods and insures on a like for like basis. Trackdays are also an option on the policy for comprehensive cover on track. I satisfy the other criteria :)

Hi
We cover all mods (on a like for like basis) except roll cages/stripped out and nitrous.

We can recommend a company who provides track day cover though we don't offer it ourselves.

I’ve been asked quite a few times recently how to get an insurance quote from us.

All you need to do is either ring the office please on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 if calling from a mobile) – Mon-Fri 9am till 5pm, Sat 9am till noon and state the club name and if possible the reference number (found in my signature below) - or use the email quote facility found on this forum.

I don’t personally do the quotes as I spend a lot of my time travelling the country on business and work from home also.
We have a specialist team who will be able to help you.

Also, please don't forget the popular car breakdown cover at £54.50 for full UK cover – please see http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottBreakdown.pdf and the instant, online travel insurance quotes - http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/travel

And if you need home insurance then http://www.ckinsurance.co.uk/docs/ChrisKnottHomeInsurance.pdf!

Thanks.

Ahhh I got excited, untill I read it doesn't cover Northern Ireland!

Do insurance companies not realised that the majority of us stopped playing with petrol bombs about 12years ago! :)

I guess I'll have to stick with the circus that is Quinn Direct.

Just a quick apology for those who tried our New Business team on Monday but didn't get through.

We were absolutely manic - good for business - but it didn't help those who couldn't get a quote.
(Claims & Customer Service depts were unaffected).

We are back to normal now so please ring us if you're car/home/car breakdown insurance is due in July.

Hi Tim, is there an online quote function, or an email address where I can send you the relevant details? Have left my phone at home and not sure whether I'll get home to grab it before your office is closed today, but would be happy to pass my details on electronically if you're able to deal with it that way and give me a call back?

All drivers must have held a full UK licence for at least 1 year, and to insure a 'performance' car, there must be at least 1 years experience of driving that, or similar performance cars. Unfortunately, the scheme is not competitive on all M - Manchester, L - Liverpool, OL - Oldham & SK1-12 - Stockport postcodes and excludes Northern Ireland.
