Testimonials from IronOak clients


Daniel will act in your best interests and be your insurance advocate.

This is what our clients say about their IronOak experience: 


Donna Birt -

I took out an income protection policy (along with other benefits) with Daniel a few years back. The policy was still very new when I had to make a claim. I was pregnant at the time and at the 3-month mark I injured my back. I was so well supported by Daniel and he made what could have been a very difficult claim an easy one. It was such a relief to have the support of Daniel and the policy at a critical time. My initial apprehension of 'another' policy proved unfounded and the investment truly paid off. I didn't have to stress about how I was going to cover my expenses and was able to focus fully on my health and recovery."

Lisa Garrud -

"Daniel has my full trust when it comes to my insurances. He spent time looking over what I already had in place and advised that it was not in my best interests to change anything even though I could have. I know that insurance advisers earn their income via commissions, so right then, I knew that he truly does what is best for his clients."

Sarah McQuoid -

"Another great catch up and review of our policy and adjusting to meet our needs. Sound advise - no push to spend more money on unnecessary insurances just enough to cover us for our mortgage and income. Daniel is a genuine person who has your best interest at heart!"  


Madeleine Collins  -

"Throughout every meeting, we have had with Daniel he has had the utmost empathy, friendliness and professionalism. He answers the questions we don't even know how to ask and ensures a seamless process every step of the way. Not once did we feel like we were being given a sales pitch. Instead, Daniel genuinely found the best solution for us at every step. Most significantly when we needed him last year for a claim he went above and beyond taking away huge amounts of stress."

Natasha McDowall  -

"It was an incredibly frustrating experience not being able to work for more than 6 months but Daniel was right there helping with each step of the claim. He liaised with both the insurer and ACC on my behalf and made sure I had the support I needed. Having Key Person cover, as well as personal Income Protection with ACC on top, meant that there were funds coming into both my business and my household. I would much rather have been at work myself but the Key Person benefit enabled the business to survive without me for a time, while the personal Income Protection and ACC payments took the financial pressure off my family so that they did not suffer while I was off with surgery and rehabilitation."

IronOak can help you with:




I was looking for the best health insurance company for myself. I didn't have the time to wait on numerous phone calls to different companies. So I posted a post regarding this on the FB Titirangi page and I came across Daniel. He found the best private health insurance company for me.

I would highly recommend his services and he's local as well. Keep up the great work you do Daniel.
