AlfaOwner INSURANCE Scheme with CHRIS KNOTT: 0800 917 2274

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR COMPETITIVE CAR INSURANCE, high service levels and all the ongoing support you need, we've got some great news for you.

CHRIS KNOTT INSURANCE now offers AlfaOwner.com members all of the above and more because we love car enthusiasts and because you are generally better drivers.

We also have a soft spot for Alfas having been the approved provider for Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK for a significant number of years.

Here's what members have said about us recently on some of the forums we work with:

"They've just done me a cracking deal - knocked 10% off the best quote I could find elsewhere and matched the low excess, so £506 is now £456 :thumb: Top marks to them, very easy and professional to deal with".

"I would recommend these guys! Am with them and have had nothing but great help and advice as well as a highly competitive premium".

"Chris Knott saved me £300 on my renewal from my then insurers and around £80 on the quotes from comparison sites. No problems with waiting to be answered, friendly, efficient service - thanks".

"Sounds to me like you're a decent bunch of guys there instead of going "computer says no" you will actually try and go that extra mile to help a customer. Not many insurers like that".

"Just been quoted a total of £595 all in for both the HDI and the V6, all modifications declared, both of us to drive both cars comprehensive. Dead chuffed. They beat Admiral's renewal by 10% or something like that".

We'd like to get involved on this forum and be available for general insurance comment too. If you're not sure about any element of our offering, please just ask - we're looking forward to talking to you.

For your free car insurance quote, call Chris Knotts on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) quoting CODE: AOD-80 and find out how much you could save.

Of course, we have our own set of criteria so we won't be the best for everyone. If we can't help you it's not because we don't want to. However, if you fit our scheme we'll work hard on your behalf to negotiate the best deal with insurers and that sometimes involves using an alternative quote as ammo to get them to budge.

We only quote over the phone as we've found online forms are never as good as the human touch.

When you call us we get a better feel for you as a risk and this results in a better quote for you - we currently sign up 1 in every 3 enquiries. Will the next one be you?

Will you be saying what this happy customer said? "Not able to find insurance anywhere for less than £470. Quick call to Chris Knott as the club specialist - very courteous and efficient, came back with a price of £390".

We don't operate hard sell tactics. Instead we encourage staff to offer top-quality personal service, sound advice and all the ongoing support you need throughout your time with us.

Your needs are put first and we’ll work hard on your behalf to find the policy that is most suitable for your requirements. We want to treat you fairly – the same way we’d expect to be treated ourselves.

To ensure that you get a crystal-clear quote and the right price/cover combination, call us FREE at renewal so our highly-trained insurance experts can help.

• Competitive quotes
• Personal contact
• Impartial advice
• Your needs put first
• All the ongoing support you need

Simply call FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 for mobiles) quoting CODE: AOD-80 to find the right price and cover combination.

The scheme covers most modifications (excluding nitrous and roll cages). All makes and models are considered eligible. Drivers of performance type models must be aged 25 or over with 2 years' experience of driving that car or one of similar performance (sometimes aged 30 with one year's experience is acceptable - depending on overall risk profile). For most other makes drivers only need to be aged over 19 for TPF&T or 22 for Comprehensive. All drivers must have held a licence for at least 1 year and have a minimum 1 year's NCB.

Quotes subject to individual circumstances including restrictions on claims/convictions (no more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction per driver). Sorry but we are not competitive for some of the M, L, OL and SK1-12 postcodes and can't quote for Northern Ireland. Some postcodes require the car to be parked off the road overnight.

This insurance scheme is administered by Chris Knott Insurance who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

I will be in touch nearer my renewal for HASTINGS DIRECT but do want to tow my Minno trailer for the race car just to be legal not for theft of the towed vehicle.

Curious. This looks exactly like the Alfa Romeo Owners' Club UK Insurance scheme... as operated by CKI for 15 years or more...

Not so good for "classics" as can only get agreed price unless it is ALWAYS garaged, so like me who store in the winter "off site" and actually want to drive it in the summer and leave it under a carport doesn't meet the requirements.
Also they don't ask if your a AROC member when you phone so there "deals" are for anybody
And they will only beat your last quote rather than give you the best price possible.
I did insure the sprint last year with them but the 156 went to privilage
Will be "shoping around" this year

I'm often asked questions like "How much is it for a 23 yr old on a...?" or "I've been quoted £xxx. Can you beat it?".

As you can appreciate there's a lot more detail required before we can offer a quote. So the best thing is to call us on the Chris Knott freephone number (0800 917 2274) rather than PM-ing me (or posting the question on the forum).

I know you're after a quick answer but there really isn't one for these types of question. If you call us our guys will make sure you have all the info you need to make a decision about switching to us.

Thanks.

Oh, and make sure you quote the forum's unique code - AOD-80.

Just an update on this - been away in Geneva for the Motorshow & having Spinal Surgery tomorrow:(

Somewhat worried that the insurers that provide specialist Classic Car insurance (Highway through LV) send an assessor who clearly has no understanding about Classic Cars or the repair of them:(

Seemingly, he was thinking along the lines of a bolt off, bolt on repair that you do on modern cars, not the complex "one piece" front end you get on a Classic Spider.

I'll hopefully be in the land of the living on Tuesday so will chase this then.

Cheers,

Simon

Come on guys, we're Alfa specialists and have been for just under 30 years. Make sure you call us to see how much we can save you. One insurer even allows us to offer 10% OFF your best quote (ONLY FOR ALFAS). That's 10% less than the best quote you can find anywhere else. Pick up the phone peeps and save money that you can then spend on your Alfa. You already know that we offer great service - now test us on our prices!

Please remember to include Chris Knott in the mix when searching for a car insurance quote.

For good drivers, we can often beat your best alternative quote when we know what it is - dis-regarding what the system says we should be quoting. That's because our insurer partners trust us and allow us to quote what we need to to get them good quality business.

This year so far we're signing up even more forum members than last year so we must be doing something right!

Call Chris Knotts and we'll find you the best deal based on your individual needs.

"Ian insured with Chris Knott a couple of weeks ago and reported the best deal he's ever had, thanks guys" said Alfanutz admin, Zender156.

High for the industry, 78% of Chris Knott's clients are renewing this year too, which means we are pretty consistent in our pricing - not looking to change the rate if the risk is the same as last year.

It's true there have been a few comments regarding the length of time it takes for us to answer calls. But we're pleased to say that we've listened to feedback and have now made it easier for you to get through to the quoting team. They were previously handling other types of enquiry but we're now fielding those enquiries to a separate, dedicated team. You should notice a great improvement.

Pick up the phone today if you're due in the next few weeks and see how much Chris Knott can save you.

shame, i've been on hold for over 20 minutes, about to give up..
Sorry about that - Friday lunchtimes are always a nightmare - everyone trying to call in during their lunch break before the weekend.

If you PM me your number I'll get someone to call you. In any case, as a matter of course, we track missed calls and ring back when we can.

Glad it appears we've come up with the goods for you. Hopefully others will give us a try too.

Did you know that once you become a client you can recommend us and earn £20 off your next renewal with us for each friend or family member who goes ahead? Just a thought.

Highly recommended. I now have my GTV 916 and Giulietta insured with them. Very competitive, hopefully so in the future.
