Performance Film & Media

Equipment Hire or Facilities Companies


Ensure your kit is properly covered at all times, whether in your care or out on hire.

As your assets are your livelihood, it is of paramount importance that you ensure your kit has been properly covered, whether in your care or out on hire.

Excellent cover as standard

As you would expect from a leading media equipment insurance specialist, Performance provides the usual Fraudulent Hire cover you would expect for your hired out kit, PLUS a generous level of Continuing Hire cover - should the worst happen to those items that you cross hire in from other media equipment rental companies.

Online 24/7/365 quote & buy system

We can even help you take more bookings too, by saving that last-minute hire.  So, when someone turns up to rent equipment from you on a Saturday without insurance, you can direct them towards our 24/7/365  online short period insurance system. The system has been custom built with the film and media industry in mind and, once cover has been purchased, it will instantly generate the relevant documentation, providing you with complete peace of mind. This new system means we can provide cover even when all other film and media insurance brokers are shut!

Anti-fraud protection for your business

As part of our ethos of giving back to the industry, we work with the hire community to prevent hire fraud through associations like the Xhire Anti-Fraud network; sharing best practices, delivering talks at conferences or seminars, and providing information to the membership to strengthen their defences.

Introducing the KitGuard - The anti-fraud app

What’s more, Performance has developed the UK’s first anti-fraud App specifically for media hire companies.  This allows you to check the ID of the customer, and to check their insurance document in real time.  In addition, we have introduced anti-spoofing technology to our documents, meaning you can be sure that our documents are what they say they are – right in the App!

Your insurance needs

We can also provide competitive terms for your own insurance – just let us know when your policy is due for renewal and we will provide you with a competitive quote.
