  1. We're an award winning independent broker with a 30 year history and a loyal dedicated team all based in our offices in Essex. With over a hundred members of staff we're big enough to count, but small enough to care.
  2. Because we're independent, we search the car insurance market to get you the best motor policy - from third party policies to fully comprehensive cover. Whenever you ask for a new or renewal quote, we search a panel of up to 100 leading UK underwriters to ensure you get the best, up to the minute, market rate and the best, cheap cover.
  3. If you need to make a claim, because we're completely independent, we work with you, not against you, to sort everything out and to make sure your claim is paid. Whether you need to sort out a hire car or a new windscreen, our claims service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  4. The people who work at Performance Direct are insurance professionals enthusiasts who relish a challenge or an unusual insurance conundrum - we don't employ call centre sales staff who are only interested in the next sale.
