I realise that some people don't meet the criteria
u mean 99% of people dont meet the criteria.
My question is why aren't more people calling us on here? Just curious!


if you really want to break records u need to get YOUNG drivers involved :meh: not just grandma and grandad
OFFICAL DVLA DATA:
1414 - corsa gsi's on the road in 2008.
735 - corsa gsi's currently on the road and 436 SORN
Basicly you would have to be a right tw*t to break one for parts :rant:

Thanks to everyone for an awsome weekend at pvs!

Hi
Just to let you know I'm taking a (well-earned?!) rest over Christmas!

From today, I am only in on 23/12 but then off till 4/1/10 so won't be able to answer insurance-related questions on here till then.

Of course, the office will still be open each day except the 'Bank Holidays', Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, Saturday afternoons & Sundays – 0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 if ringing by mobile.

The claims department is manned 24 hours a day and the claims helpline number can be found on your Certificate of Insurance & policy booklet.

Have a good Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
Kind regards
Tim

Hi
As with most people, we have been affected by the snow but most of our staff are in now though it took some time. We are due more snow in our location in the next few days but as half our staff are fairly local anyway, this shouldn't be a problem.

I'll let you know however if there are any significant changes re staffing!

UPDATE - JUST BEEN TOLD WE ARE SHUTTING AT 3.30PM TODAY - WEDNESDAY 6TH JANUARY!
Kind regards

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.
It would seem this also does not include BD post codes either.

So, the areas that where people struggle to find decent insurance is out.
The ages that struggle to find decent insurance is also out.
And the experiance levels of people who struggle to get insurance....is also out of the question.

If your wondering why people on this site aren't calling, i think you may have just realised ^_^.

Firstly, we can cover all cars in BD postcodes as long as they are kept off road overnight.

Secondly, so you're telling me that the 6949 members on here all live in the North West and are aged under 19? ;)

(You misunderstand the point about 'experience'. Basically if you wished to insure an SRi and had just bought it, you would need to have driven similar bhp cars in the past. This 'clause' doesn't apply to vehicles of less spec than the SRi).

Yes, the majority of the users on this forum who would be interested in an insurance scheme, are below the age of 20.

Alot of the REGISTERED member, come along, make a couple of posts, then dissapear again. They are still down on the forum, but they may not have made a post in a while.
The regular posters tend to be quite young.

I agree that the best way of getting more people would be to introduce a scheme for young drivers.

Of course, since we are at the highest risk of pranging someone elses car...or worse, a pedestrian, thats why insurance companies stay well clear of us.

Thanks to all who have rung us for a quote.

We have just calculated the figures for 2009 and they show that the average recorded saving we made for our new customers last year was 12.5% off their BEST quote so it's certainly worth a call!

We consistently average over 80% renewal retention as well (December was 84%!) so people are happy at renewal as well!

0800 917 2274 or 01580 752961 until 1/3/10 then 01424 200477.
Kind regards

Please note that we have moved to modern premises in Hastings, East Sussex, specifically designed around the current and future needs of the business and considering the fact that we have taken on quite a few more staff.

The new postal details for Chris Knott Insurance will be:

Chris Knott Insurance

5th Floor

Cavendish House

Breeds Place

Hastings

East Sussex

TN34 3AA



Our quote line number won’t change – you can still call us FREE on 0800 917 2274 for your no-obligation quote – remember to quote your unique club/forum code (mobiles can call 01424 200477).



As well as new premises, we have recently invested heavily in technology that will reduce the amount of paper we use and store. The overall aim of these improvements is to enhance operations and therefore offer members an even better service.
Kind regards
Tim

Hi

Although on average nearly 1 in every 2 people who get a quote from us take out a policy, the number of people who ring us is quite low compared to the amount of registered users.

I realise that there are certain age and postcode limitations as stated in my original post in this thread (which are there to protect the scheme for the majority due to the high claims loss ratio's within these categories) but I would encourage you to give us a call if your car (or home, breakdown) insurance is due.

Our reputation hopefully precedes us based on the amount of grateful comments received.

Please ring free on 0800 917 2274 (mobiles can ring 01424 200477) and just state the club reference number found in my signature below, or in my original post.
Kind regards
Tim

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/Chris ... akdown.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/Chris ... urance.pdf!

Thanks.
Kind regards
