At Proactive we welcome your enquiries and invite you to visit our premises where we have a dedicated showroom, should you require a hands-on demonstration.

We have a wide range of products available to see; including the latest cameras, sliders, tripods, lighting and more.
As our Business has grown so have the demands of our customers, Increasingly we are being asked not only to supply the right equipment but to integrate it into a complete working system.
“Dealing with proactive is easy and quick. Ordering is simple and the pricing is very good. We’ve never had a problem with any of the equipment that has been sent to us.” - Jonathan Taylor, Technical Manager - University of Kent
“We have been using Proactive for more than 10 years. We have always had an excellent level of service from Neil, Dale, Kevin and the rest of the team. They are the best place for presales advice or to see a piece of kit as well as for aftersales support. The website is also an excellent resource when wishing to compare kit. I always recommend our students and visiting professionals to make their pro kit purchases with Proactive.” - Steve Holdsworth – National Film & TV School
“We've had a great experience with ProAV. Quotes are received the same day with advice on the best products and they are always happy to discuss our requirements. Their customer service is great, when we have had problems with products they are very helpful sorting out repairs or replacements. As a student TV station we need equipment that is easy to use, hard wearing and cheap, ProAV understand our needs and have competitive pricing, sourcing the best kit at the best prices for us.” - Chris Osborn - Lancaster University Students' Union
“Over the past few years Media Services, Brunel University London, have placed a number of orders with Proactive. Throughout all our dealings over those years, with Kevin, Dale and other staff at Proactive they have always returned calls and answered emails promptly, No matter how many times we’ve asked questions or ‘tweaked’ quote requirements staff have patiently provided the answers or produced yet another quote competently and in a professional manner.
Spares and replacement parts have been quickly despatched enabling us to keep our stock available to over 300 media students which we support each year, if parts were not available we were kept informed of ‘realistic’ delivery dates which has helped us plan stock accessibility for our students.
Recently we placed a very large order for a variety of items with Kevin. Prior to placing the order we had various questions about some of the items and accessories we were interested in purchasing, Kevin offered unbiased advice and options which was much appreciated. Once the order was placed he kept us informed throughout the process of delivery dates and of any possible delays.
Kevin, Dale and the rest of the staff at Proactive are a real credit to the company, they go the extra mile to provide the service customers need and, expect! Like the company name, they are definitely Proactive!” – John Bates – Brunel University London.
"Dealing with ProAv when purchasing new equipment has been a breeze. After initial consultations and quotes we agreed on the best equipment packages for the Creative Industries: Television Courses'. Working closely with the team throughout the entire process meant we got the equipment on time and on budget. The team at ProAV have been very helpful and patient as dealing with finance departments can be time consuming and laborious. Both staff and students here at west college Scotland are ecstatic with the new Sony PMW300 Cameras and the accessories in the kit. The cameras provide ease of use with industry standard formats and equipment to allow the students to gain experience with Cameras and workflow within single cam or multi-cam ENG projects. We will happily deal with ProAV again, whenever we need pro industry equipment" - Dave Donaldson - Greenock Campus, West College Scotland
