Ironsure.com - was what the Internet was invented for! Quick, easy and cheap motor insurance at the press of a few buttons. But that was all in the past, now that the QBE Insurance Group has acquired Iron Trades Insurance Company. QBE has written to all customers announcing the closure of Ironsure.com. I am now looking for a new policy for my son's car. Ironsure were charging £148 a year - the nearest online quote I have found so far is £688! Surely another company could have taken over the motor insurance division of Iron Trades Insurance Company?
When i visited ironsure.com and got a quote i thought i was on to a real winner, but i read the small print luckily (i think). im not a gambler so am not going to say its a rip off because i havent tried it. their quote was very cheap, but it is a monthly renewable policy meaning your payments can go up or down each month. ideal if you need short term insurance without a commitment, but long term youd have to check it out each month. could be a good idea who knows, just shows about the small print. maybe the company could offer fixed insurance as well as variable a possibility for the future. if your brave enough to use them let me know if its a good deal please.

not very sure about this one, yes it gives you a quick quote, but the cover is paid on a monthly basis, great for certain people, but this obviously means it could jump drastically from one month to another, and what happens if your ill and dont check the price it could end up been rather expensive. Agood quick site, but i think they need to be more open about the monthly premiums at first then people wouldnt be concerned like me.
No way will any of you by any means do it quicker than this. You need your name , postcode and car registration number and its almost instant. I,ve just insured a second car and again it worked like clockwork. How do they do it???? (update) I waited with baited breath after I recently insured my car on this website, as it seemed too easy, very reasonable and most unusual. The site is www,ironsure .com and is a part of iron trades which I have used before. The site is a completely interactive internet insurance for UK users. When trying to gat acheaper car insurance I tried at least a dozen different sites, but this one was completely different. Firstly you get you quote there and then. Most sites ask you to fill in pages of information, and then e mail you with a quote, or even worse phone you and try the hard sell. I was amazed how few questions you are asked with this site. It is very quick, nicely set out and easy. Your quote comes immediately and it is easy to slot in different details to see how the quote would alter. You can juggle around to your hearts content to lower the quote. This of course you can do 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Once you are happy withyour quote you give your credit card details (it is a secure site), and within seconds hey presto youre insured. The very unusual thing about this site is that you are paying for a months insurance. A month later you will be sent an email reminding you that your next months payment is about to be collected from your account, and if you dont want to renew theres no penalty. Each month you are sent an insurance certificate which duly arrived and I was very happy with. You can view your policy details on line 2
4/7, and change them at any time. there is a 24 hour claims line and helpdesk line so they are always on the end of a phone should you need them. My quote with ironsure was cheaper than any other, and when my 18 year old goes to uni in September I can take her off the policy for the months she is there with no penalty, and pop her back on for months shes at home. This will save me a fortune. Try it too. Update.26/12/00 Unfortunately Ironsure have stopped dealing in car insurance. They still gave me good notice, and written proof of no claims. This was a great service. Why is it that some things seem and are too good to last.
