About Performance Direct Insurance

Performance Direct was formed in 1995 and is the general insurance division of Grove & Dean, a family run Chartered financial services organisation based in Romford, Essex. Performance Direct for Business is a the latest division of the Company set up to give clients access to our wealth of commercial insurance expertise.

Our group now employs over one hundred and fifty people, all based at the signature building, 'Tollgate House', located at the east end of Romford Market Place in Essex.

Performance Direct's success is founded on providing value for money, private and commercial insurance cover. Many clients first find Performance Direct because we can help them with a more unusual insurance requirement – a performance or prestige car, an import, classic or modified vehicle, or, perhaps, a motorcycle. From this base, Performance Direct for Business now provides experienced commercial insurance cover, but with the same ‘can do’ attitude.

Over the years, Performance Direct has never lost its enthusiast approach to insurance and the ability to combine the best service and policies available with all-important value for money. With an on-line quote engine, helpful and knowledgeable staff and a dedicated 24.7.365 claims service, thousands of new customers are now choosing Performance Direct and Performance Direct for Business every year.
