1st impressions of dealing with GJW and taking out the cover on our V45 10/10. Debbie extremely helpful. Thank you for your perseverance in getting the right cover in place for us.
Unfortunately in the last 10 months I have had to make 2 insurance claims - GJW on both occasions have been absolutely fantastic . I would strongly recommend this company - truly outstanding - great service and very easy to deal with - Thanks
Sarah was exceptionally helpful in arranging my boat insurance and ensured by the end of the call that I was informed, knowledgeable and pleased that I had secured the best possible cover for my needs. Thank you!
GJW have been my chosen insurance provider for 26 years and we have now insured our 8th boat with them, a Riva. They have always exceeded our expectations.
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!
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.
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.
Great company, policies tailor made for liveaboards with inclusive cover for realistic amount of contents at a very competitive price. Nice people giving a personal service....what's not to like?
We've just renewed our widebeam insurance for this coming year and received an excellent service from GJW. Really good premium and only a very small increase. Superb!
Debbie at GJW was very helpful in arranging the insurance for my boat....my narrowboat is over 30 years old and I expected the process to be problematic....it was a relief to be able to get such comprehensive cover so easily and quickly. THANK YOU, Debbie 🙂
I have just renewed my Barge Insurance with GJW and I am very satisfied with the service. Their price was very competitive and I was pleased that my premium has not gone up this year.
Excellent, friendly service with competitive prices and always quick and factual responses to communications and questions - very highly recommended!
Fabulous service from GJW Direct recently. I managed to 'banana' my Supernova mast whilst racing - a tricky downwind leg in a strong and gusty breeze and a nasty capsize at speed. Submitted my claim on Monday; claims team emailed me on Tuesday; new mast arrived on Wednesday. All this meant that I didn't miss coaching on the very next Saturday or Club racing on the Sunday = very happy customer!
I've insured with GJW for a few years having found their pricing competitive. But you never really know about an insurer until you make a claim. Well last month I had to claim for a snapped dinghy centreboard. I found them efficient and really easy to deal with, my claim was settled for exactly the amount I was expecting. After that experience I'll definitely stay with them and won't hesitate to recommend GJW to others. Stay safe people.
I have used GJW dinghy insurance for several years. The premiums are competitive for very comprehensive cover. When I recently had to make a claim, the service and response by Ashley Vernon was rapid, polite, and faultless. Whilst I continue to need dinghy insurance I will continue to use GJW Direct - hopefully without having to claim again.
