In the title mol­ecular salt, (C13H22N)[FeCl4], three of the chloride ions of the tetra­hedral FeIII-containing anion are disordered over two orientations in a 0.656 (11):0.344 (11) ratio. In the crystal, there are no identifiable directional inter­actions between cations and anions except for Coulombic forces.
