What GJW Direct customers think

Charles

"A company with a good reputation in the industry. They provided a competitive premium quote which was agreed without difficulty. A first rate service from Debbie. We have had no claims on our policies since 1995 - long may it continue!"

George

"1st impressions of dealing with GJW and taking out the cover on our V45 10/10. Debbie was extremely helpful. Thank you for your perseverance in getting the right cover in place for us."

Ann

"Excellent service to sort out new insurance for us. Good price, swift responses and easy signing up. They included our pontoon easily when others would not."

Frank

"Remarkably helpful and knowledgeable staff who answer the phone readily. I have talked to them on a number of occasions as I plan my boat insurance needs. In general they seem to be mature, experienced people who understand their business and their industry and are happy to answer questions and explain how things work."
