Hi to all!

The Vauxhall Owners Network have been in discussion with ourselves about an insurance scheme for members.
(If you are not yet a Club Member, it's surely worth paying the membership fee because in 2008, the average recorded saving we made for our new customers was 15.5% off their BEST quote!).

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 starts for ages 22 and over for Comprehensive cover, & 19 and over for TPF&T cover, and you must have at least 1 year's NCB (unless you have NCB on a second car or a company car letter to state at least 1 year's claim free driving).

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.

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

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 & please don't forget to quote 'reference 915 - VAUXHALL OWNERS NETWORK'!

good to have you aboard, fella.

just a quicky, do you have an 'administration' charge for changing vehicles part way through a policy??

there are members on here, myself included, that change cars at a rate of knots, so even if your policy is, say, £100 cheaper, this COULD be swallowed up by the cost of changing a vehicle midway.

thanks for any reply, tim.

ADA-V - Will be interesting to see what his answer is as I know what you are saying.

My 2p though:

To be fair I would assume any company if asked to do more work would want paying for it. And changing details, issuing new paperwork, updating records, indeed even answering the phone to you costs money so why shouldn't they charge you something?

Surely far better for companies to charge an admin fee to the individula to cover additional time spent by them on your policy, and so keep the initial premium down, rather than for them to assume for every customer will change vehicals/details X times so add a charge for this 'potential' cost to every policy?

Also - I know of no company that doesn't charge this - so your example of an initial £100 saving being eaten up by changing cars will be the same for any insurer? Therefore surely it will still be £100 cheaper???????

I think you need to face facts - if you ask someone to do more work you will have to pay them. If you don't want to incure the cost don't change your car!

But lets see what Tim says.

Hi
Yes, we charge £10 though there is no charge if the change doesn't warranty a difference in premium.

Do you insure classic cars?
Noticed a fair few insurers won't touch cars over 25 years old, and I have a rather heavily modified 1973 manta under construction which I hope to have finished soon.

We're OK for modified except roll cages & nitrous.

We can only do Agreed Value on low mileage, unmodified cars.

Just to let you know that Tim from Chris Knott Insurance is away on holiday (& then business) from 10/4/09 to 29/4/09 inclusive. This means he won't be able to respond to queries or pm's for this duration.

Many Thanks :)

Ah but my insurance is due at the end of this month

I used Chris Knott last year and saved over £230 with the quote I had from Adrian Flux (this was back when I had the BMW as well, heavy modified)

Not had any problems changing vehicle with them either, which I've done twice

Just renewed my own myself also :shame:

Do you do multi car policies?? or a part policy?? i.e. can add an extra car for say 6 months (summer months) if you have a 2nd car for show use e.t.c.??
Afraid not, sorry.
