UPDATE: CAR INSURANCE WISH LIST

Hi,

In the Chris Knott office recently we were considering whether there were things the industry could do better. We were also contemplating what we as a business could do better.

Being that we're coming to the end of the year and are starting our planning for our new financial year which begins 1st Feb it's a good time to ask this question of you.

It's incredibly important for us to get members' views in all this as we seek to provide the things you want and need. Interactivity is the benefit of being involved with a forum.

Of course, a competitive price is always going to feature highly among the responses - we know that and we've responded as the market has softened in recent months. But we're also keen to find out if there are things besides the price that matter to you from a cover or service point of view that would be useful.

We'll look at all your suggestions - some of them we'll be able to arrange straight away, others will take longer to organise, maybe involving insurers, and some will not be possible at all but we'll do all we can to respond to the sensible suggestions.

To make sure we're not just feeding our competitors ideas, please PM me on here or drop us a message on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ChrisKnottIns) or Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/Chris_Knott_Ins).

We look forward to hearing from you but please maintain the helpful, collaborative spirit in which this is intended.

Lower premiums in general especially with young drivers, You want our money! but charge us double/triple or even quadruple the price of the car! :wall:

I understand the situation with the reputation of boy racers and inflation etc but if you said providing your aged between 17-25 and your car is worth less than £2,500 we wont charge you more than that and i imagine in most cases less due to age (Prices tend to drop when you hit 20/21), no claims discount, years of driving and advanced driving courses etc more people would take out insurance with you!

And of course competitive prices on modified cars as well....

:thumbsup:

Thanks for the idea but it's not just the cost of the repairs against the value of the vehicle that matters to insurers, it's the personal injury element of a claim that drives up the cost for younger drivers.

Your 18 year old mate who is left disabled for the rest of his life because of your collision with a tree will cost much more in compensation than a 60 year old passenger injured in her husband's car.

Its not a problem now got insurance elsewhere. I spoke to a guy with a strangely spelt surname.
'Ioannou' I suspect - it's a Cypriot name. I'd have liked to have seen what happened to your email and whether we did actually respond. We often leave voicemail if we can't get through first time.

Welcome back after the Christmas break!

I've had a look and we have no record of the email arriving, and Milton was waiting for that so he could complete the quote.

It's a shame we've missed out but please do give us a call later in the year when your current cover expires. We'll contact you around that time anyway to remind you.

best regards,
Nick

This feedback posted just today on one of the forums: "Would just like to say a big thank you to Chris Knott - sponsor on here - for giving me a very decent insurance policy. Had an accident in December and found Chris to be very understanding and really helped me out. Bettered my quote by about £30-£40, lowered my excess and got all this with added courtesy car, legal cover and car hire purchase. Was very pleased to also hear the very small interest rate for paying monthly! A big thank you and hopefully I'll get my NCB bonus back so that my premium is even lower!" Wardy, Briskoda.net

Thank You from Chris Knott Insurance

Hi, we'd like to thank the members of the car club/forum community for their support of our special car insurance scheme. So far this year we've been amazed at the increase in members using our service to find the best deal - each month we've beaten our growth targets by a significant amount and that's down to you.

On a slightly different note, we do try to monitor the forums and keep up to date with any insurance questions out there but if we've missed any please feel free to flag them up again by PM and we'll make sure you get a response.

Thanks again for your custom and don't forget to try us this year when your renewal falls due. We won't be able to help everyone but we'll do all we can for as many of you as we can.

QUOTELINE: 0800 917 2274 / 01424 200477

***************************************

Sorry about that. We often do battle with Flux. Sometimes we win, sometimes we don't. If we couldn't beat their rate there'll be a valid reason.
