    Car Insurance - what to check as well as the price

    Thanks very much Lowe.
  2. You could be missing out if you ignore the specialist brokers (especially if your car or situation is non-standard). You might think that you're going to get your best deal on a price comparison website but actually at Chris Knott we're just as likely to beat an online price as any other. Different deals exist for brokers that mean we can easily compete in the market. Price is very important and we know that's normally the buying trigger but have you also considered what service you will get for example? WHAT TO CHECK WHEN GETTING QUOTES When you're comparing your quotes make sure you check a few key things in addition to the price so your pride and joy really is well protected: - Is there a contact number or address available if you have any issues or are they keeping you at arm's length? - What's the total excess you'll have to pay for claims (compulsory + voluntary amounts)? - What's actually included - windscreen cover, courtesy car, legal expenses? - Have you heard of the company before or are they unknown? - Are they UK based and therefore regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority? - How do their admin charges for change of address/vehicle/mods/resending documents compare? - What's the total cost (including interest) if you're paying monthly? Give Chris Knott a try at renewal and see if we'll be your best option this year. We can explain all of these things to you in your quote so you're not buying blind. QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 or leave us your renewal date at https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/CarQuote and we'll call you at the right time. best, Nick ********************************** RELEVANT TESTIMONIALS Here are some examples that specifically show Chris Knott beating the online sites - we have many more, these are just a selection: "Great company, great quote, dealt with a guy called Ian who couldn’t have been more helpful, as was everyone else I spoke with... couldn’t be more happy with the customer service, highly recommend calling them over wasting time with comparison sites." Dan Brooke, TrustPilot "I contacted Chris Knott Insurance after reading an online recommendation that they were good to deal with. I was pleasantly surprised at the prices provided, which were a total of £80 cheaper than the cheapest price I'd been able to find via searching several comparison sites. Good service as well which is always a bonus." Euan Campbell, TrustPilot "I used these last year and renewal due soon. At the time they we're the cheapest after looking at all the comparison sites." John Burrill, Saab Owners Club "So far so good. I have recently insured car and house with Chris Knott. In both cases I had done a comparison search on Google. I decided to go through talking with a human.Both agents were informative and helpful." Mrs B, TrustPilot "They are awesome! Best price I could find online and with comparisons, they beat by about £50. Plus they included ALL of the added extras you would normally pay extra for." Richard R, TTMk1OC "Gave Chris Knott Insurance a call - none of the comparison sites could touch them for my renewal." Graeme Thom, MK6 Golf Owners Club UK "I had been with Chris Knott Insurance for over 10 years up until 2013 when I got rid of my car. Recently after getting a new car, they were able to quote the best price on insurance even after a very reasonable quote from a popular price comparison website. Highly recommended, and its definitely worth getting a quote even if a comparison websites seem to be the best option." Andrew Robertson, TrustPilot

    We don't offer track day cover, no. Sorry.

    5-star Defaqto rated GAP Cover

    Modified cars are fine, though if the cause of any total loss is deemed due to the modification the insurer will not pay out.

    5-star Defaqto rated GAP Cover

    5-star Defaqto GAP Cover from Chris Knott If a new car is on the cards you might be interested in protecting its value with either 'Return To Invoice GAP' or 'Finance GAP' cover. Chris Knott's combined RTI/Finance GAP Cover is 5-star Defaqto rated - meaning it has been independently assessed as providing the highest levels of cover. We're so confident you'll like it too that you can try it risk-free for 30 days. 100% money back guarantee During that time, if you decide for whatever reason it doesn't meet your needs, as long as you haven't made a claim you can request a full refund. THE KEY BENEFITS: - Top-up your motor insurance payout in the event of a total loss claim - Get back to the original invoice price or settle any outstanding finance/lease (whichever is greater) - For cars (and commercial vehicles under 3,500kg) upto 10 years old/100,000 miles - Covers vehicles valued right up to £180,000 - Unlimited claims coverage on cars upto £50,000 - 5-star Defaqto rating - the highest level possible - PCP/Contract Hire/Lease Hire - all acceptable - 30-day cooling-off period - Upto £250 of your motor excess refunded - Arrange cover upto 100 days after vehicle purchase Get a quote and buy online: https://www.chrisknott.co.uk/GAP You'll also get your money back if there is no gap following a total loss... That's right, you'll receive a full premium refund if your car is written-off or stolen and there's no shortfall between your motor insurer's payout and the invoice purchase price. This could arise, for example, where you buy a heavily discounted vehicle and the total loss comes before the vehicle has depreciated enough to create a gap. Cover the GAP today You can get a quote online risk-free or call us on 0800 917 2274 if you'd prefer to speak to someone. best, Nick PS. Don't just take our word for it - you can view the full Policy Wording or the more user-friendly Product IPID to see for yourself why Defaqto determined that the cover is one of the best on the market.

    What's that, about a 20-25bhp increase?

    It has to be remembered that no single insurance provider can guarantee to be the best price-wise for everyone, otherwise they'd insure the whole country and clearly no-one does that. We are brokers with access to a number of insurers' products (including schemes that very few other brokers can access) but the quotes will ultimately always be reflective of the risk presented. We won't be the cheapest for everyone but the facilities available to us, our service levels and our reputation mean that 4 in 10 who ask CK to quote end up purchasing the policy. 80% of our clients renew year after year. Those are both strong numbers in this highly competitive industry. We gather data to help us understand where we sit in the market - car club members save 22% on average against their existing renewal when they switch to Chris Knott. It's working for many, though not for everyone. If we can't quote for you or we're not the cheapest it's not a personal affront.

    So it's SK8 4 versus SK8 3 from what I can gather. Is that right?

    It went up when you remapped the car mid-term (you paid £28 to get you to the end of the policy year). The annualised premium for last year is shown on your renewal document. It doesn't include the £15 admin fee. The insurance premium has risen by £16.53 at this year's renewal.

    The risk areas are determined by the insurers. They look as deep as the character after the space in a postcode, so TN34 3** for example when setting the area. We only know what area the code sits in when we run it through our system. If you'd like to check yours please PM me and I can check the requirements.
