Performance Film & Media
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.

“From the quoting stage through to renewal the whole process of dealing with Performance Insurance is extremely professional, efficient & quite straight forward. We've had to make two motor claims recently and both were dealt with quickly & efficiently and didn't involve countless phone calls and emails which is hugely appreciated.
Whenever I email any questions or queries I usually receive a reply within a couple of hours, even, as has been the case recently when Paul was on holiday, he still took the time to get back to me.
When I speak to Performance they have an in-depth knowledge of the film & TV industry so I don't have to waste time explaining things. It also helps that many of their customers are also my clients which also makes my life so much easier!
I have no hesitation in recommending Performance & often suggest clients call them for a quote whether it be for a short-term hire cover or for annual cover.”
