Quashed is an all-in-one insurance platform making it easy for Kiwis to sort out all our insurance in one place. Whether you’re exploring insurance, looking to compare and find the best insurance for you, wanting to manage all your existing insurance on one dashboard, or chat to an insurance expert, Quashed can help. We’re NZ’s first and only platform that do what we do. And, it’s free!
YES! If you have insurance, we make it easy for you to stay on top of it. If you are looking to explore or get insurance, we are your one-stop independent online platform that can help you simply and transparently.
Sign up in less than 60 seconds for your secure account. The best way to use Quashed is to start by dropping off all your existing insurance policies. It’s quick and easy. Our technology picks up your information and creates your new insurance dashboard so you can see what you have, how much you’re spending and stay on top of your insurance. From there, hit the magic Market Scan button to find better insurance covers for you. If you don’t have any insurance covers, or you’re looking to purchase a new policy (e.g. a new car), simply hit the Market Scan button straight off the bat.
It’s our super feature that allows you to compare and find better covers in just a few clicks. You can skip the time and effort it takes to visit multiple different insurance websites to enter the same information and try to compare the benefits by reading all the different policies. Use Market Scan to compare your existing policy to see how it stacks up or find a brand new cover for you.
It depends on what you currently have. We’re mostly finding price differences of roughly $300+ a year on policies. That means if you have a couple of cars, a house and a contents policy, that could all add up to savings of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Not only that, our customers can easily see the benefits across different policies and providers, and find better covers for them on top of saving money.
Great question. All the things you find difficult about insurance today - we’re making them easy! Store all your policy documents in one place, track how much you're spending and how much more you're paying each year, share your policy information with your other half or loved ones online, know when your insurance is expiring/renewing so you stay covered. We'll even see if there are better insurance covers and deals for you.
Mostly great things such as "Bloody good idea. I have insurances all over the show – Car, House, Boat, Life, etc." And, "I found it incredibly easy... I was also impressed how quickly the system updated after I uploaded the policies." One happy customer shared this on Facebook - “...It's so hard to have an overall view of what I'm paying, and to know if I have the best deal. Enter Quashed! Super easy to use, gives me a complete picture of ALL my insurance, and compares and recommends other options. Genius!!"
Our platform is free to use! If you're wondering, we do not sell your information. When we are able to help you and other Kiwis purchase insurance on our platform, we will generate some revenue for connecting you seamlessly to the insurance product and provider of your choice. Think of it this way. Instead of insurers paying Google or Facebook, insurers will pay us. We will not sell your information or spam you with advertisements. We promise.
If we provide you with financial advice, we may charge you fees in some instances. This will be made clear to you in our disclosures. If you decide to purchase insurance through us, the insurer will pay us some money (i.e. commissions or similar) for the advice given.
