I am 68. Three yrs ago i had a minor bump, the damage from which you had to get down on hands an knees to see. I drive a 240 Torsanda est, '92. I was told none of Knotts underwriters would quote, but one: 582. WTF?

I suspect none of them would quote it as a classic (that could be for any number of reasons - not just based on the age). Having said that, in the last few days we've got a new insurer on board and that should help us plug some of these gaps going forwards.

I'd be interested to run the quote again at the next renewal and see what we can come up with then.

Just contemplating buying a 1935 Morris 8 4 seat tourer, and as I have a Volvo 940 and use the forum quite a bit, I thought I'd give Chris Knott a bell for a quote.

Couldn't even find the model on the system....... suppose it's just too old for them.

Morris Owners Club it will be then, hopefully they will be able to do a quote.

Cheers
Steve

Default Not so happy Chris Nott Ins Customer

I thought I would share my experience with this Insurance Broker and the claims process.

I took out a policy on my XC90 last September, unfortunately on 11/05 I had a minor shunt in a car park. Chris Nott has no involvement with the claims process, when you call to make a claim they check which underwriter you are with and put you through to them.

Spoke to three different "claims teams" 1st put me through to No 2. Team 2 informed me that I was not insured and my policy had ended over a year ago, finally team 3 found my policy and started a claim for me. I was advised that I can still use the car.

Their approved repairer assessed the car on Monday and confirmed it would be booked in and done in approx 4 weeks though hopefully 3. This will be confirmed on either 16 or 17th May.

I called this PM as had no contact too now be told the repairs will be in some 6 or 7 weeks in the future though may be longer. On pushing for a firm date was advised they will check their job list a hopefully will come back by the end of the week.

Rang underwriter back who has said I can try another of their approved garages, I am waiting to see what their lead in time is. I have also been advised now not to use the car until the repairs are done at whatever time in the future and I cannot have a courtesy car until mine is physically in the body shop.

I did ring Chris Nott to complain about delays etc only to be advised it's not their issue and I have to take it up with my underwriter. In essence we will arrange a policy, take our commission and then you are on your own.

Pretty poor performance. I had a claim several years ago and my then broker was more than happy to pick up some issues I had regarding the lead in time and assist in expediting the repairs.

I am unsure as to whether I will be renewing with this company. The quote was very reasonable but the claims process thus far has been poor.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for picking this up, I have tried to respond to your message but sadly I cannot reply to a PM as I have "not reached 30 posts"

If you are happy to PM me an e-mail address I will send you the information via that route.

Thanks in advance.

Darren

Update.

I cannot seem to edit my original post as wanted to provide an update:

I have this morning had a conversation with a Manager from Chris Knotts who has been most helpful.

I have been assured that the CK are happy to pick up issues that their customers have and the advice I was given the other day was incorrect with the individual advised accordingly. Feedback will be provided to the underwriter for the confusion on whether I was insured or not.

My car is now being collected on Monday by an alternative repairer. Hopefully should now have this back a lot sooner than originally thought.

Thank you for the support from this forum especially Chris and thank you to CK for stepping up, intervening and putting things back on track.

Now feeling a lot more positive about this and (hopefully) will have the car back as it was in the not too distant future.

I will provide another update when all is done.

Thanks again!
