I know only what I've had to learn about home insurance and it is always a daunting process. I felt motivated at 12:55 am to finally go to Google and fight through a quote, and at 1:08 am I got the confirmation email of my new policy. I feel more confident in than any time I've tried to keep up with someone on the phone. The expert opinion line was so appreciated, and it was remarkably easy to customize a policy that will let me sleep easier, starting tonight!
I was very satisfied with the outcome of my claim and the support received throughout. My apartment flooded when a radiator cracked. We had to leave for 9 days and many personal belongings were destroyed. This was the first time I'd ever needed to make any type of insurance claim, and I expected the worst. However, Lisa was very helpful, arranging for reimbursement for accommodations right away and helped me to recoup on the content losses from the flood. I would recommend using Square One for renters insurance.
I have only ever used Square One for my rental insurance. They have such an easy straightforward way of doing things through their website. It really makes it easy to choose what you need and what you don't. Moving is a breeze, just change your address and your settings are all saved for you. All at an affordable price? Can't go wrong!
I called various insurance providers to get quotes for my home insurance, but once I spoke to Kayla at Square One, it was clear that she had an in-depth knowledge of Square One products. Kayla had the patience to understand my needs and guide me through the entire process, an exceptionally intuitive approach and she tweaked the policy to my specific needs. I ended up switching home insurance for my other house too which I hadn’t planned. Thanks to Kayla for helping me save money without compromising my core needs.
I had the unfortunate experience of navigating a flood shortly after moving into our new apartment. It's supposed to be a pain in the rear to go through the claims process. It's confusing, it even feels a bit embarrassing—but the team at Square One (and their partners) were incredible to deal with. They made a really bad situation good(-ish). Super responsive, sympathetic to what happened, treated me like a human. I'm a customer for life ... if only they offered more than just property insurance!
I called to transition my policy to another type. I was worried it would be complex and time-consuming. Instead, it was easy peasy, smooth, and everything was reviewed with me and all my questions answered. I'm always so impressed by Square One!
I asked quotes from a variety of providers, and after going through reviews and coverages, I'm glad I chose Square One. Whereas other companies automatically add coverage for things you might not need (jewellery, sporting equipment, etc.), Square One allows you to decide what you want covered and just how much you want the coverage and deductible to be. I'm feeling extremely comfortable moving into my new place with this policy... although I sure hope I never need to use it!
This is my first insurance policy purchase and it was super easy! I felt like everything was explained clearly and I understand my policy completely. And best of all, it took less than 10 minutes on my laptop to do!
After struggling with several brokers and insurance providers over the phone to get a reasonably-priced quote, I decided to give this one a try. Quick, easy, and very reasonable prices. No phone, just a simple form filled out online and a standard online payment. Proof of insurance ready immediately. All insurance should be this simple.
I spent all morning contacting agencies and insurance providers to get a reasonable tenant's insurance quote. I was getting egregious quotes. I stumbled upon Square One and filed an application for a quote. I was stunned so I called to ensure I could actually get the price I was quoted for. Though I was put on hold, the wait time was very short and I was periodically updated on my position in line. I spoke with David Horgan and he was super helpful! He answered all my questions and worked with me patiently!

Provided below are some basic resources for those of you who may be new to Mississauga. These resources range from a background on the city to tips on planning a move.
Mississauga, located in Southern Ontario, has a population of 713,443 people, which makes it Canada’s sixth largest metropolitan area. Mississauga is known for its busy business atmosphere and economic potential as it’s ranked first in surveys regarding mid-sized cities and their business friendliness. It has a land area of 292 square kilometers.
The Benares House offers a trip back in time to the early 1900’s. The grounds and heritage listed house are maintained as they would have been in that era. 95% of the furnishings are original, donated by the families of the house’s original occupants, and the house itself has been beautifully restored.
For lovers of the outdoors, Jack Darling Memorial Park has great family facilities, picnic areas, and waterside recreation, right on Lake Ontario. A favorite with locals, it also has one of the largest fenced off-lead dog parks in Ontario.
Before your move, consider following the steps below to make the entire process as easy as possible.
Select your movers: First, decide whether or not you’re going to hire a moving company. Know what needs to be moved from your home, and if you have any help already available. If you have willing friends and family, moving without using a company can save you money. But, if you have any large items such as a grandfather clock, using a moving company may be a good idea. While there are several moving companies in Mississauga, Two men and a truck, Expert Moving, and ABS Movers are popular choices.
Get necessary supplies: The next step is to gather the supplies you’ll need for when it comes time to pack and move. These include boxes, tape, labels, bubble wrap or other specialty packaging, and a dolly. The average person can expect to spend up to $250 on supplies which can vary depending on the size of your family.
Pack smart: Remember that you’ll want essential items unpacked immediately, and ready to use that night. It’s no fun going through multiple boxes for only one or two items. You should keep the essential items within easy reach so they can be unpacked first. These commonly include, utensils, clothing, pots and pans, bedding, and curtains.
Keep your receipts: If you moved closer to work by at least 40 kilometers, the Canada Revenue Agency allows you to deduct some moving expenses from your income. Visit the CRA to learn more.
Now that you’ve moved into your new residence, you’ll need to set up any arrangements that you may have used at your previous home.
Obtain or update your driver’s license and car insurance: Now that you’re a new Mississauga resident, you’ll want to update or obtain a new drivers license to reflect your new address. While there are several different choices, Lowest Rates will give you options for various companies.
Update your mailing address: Now that you’ve moved addresses, you’ll need to update your account and set up mail forwarding through Canada Post to ensure you don’t miss important letters or packages. Visit Canada Post’s website and get started.
Find local schools, daycares, and health professionals: If you have children, you should find both a local school or daycare. Because daycares in Mississauga are popular, it’s important to enroll your children as soon as possible. Visit the local school directory and daycare options to learn more. Now that you’ve moved, chances are you’ll need to change your doctor, dentist, chiropractor, or other health professional, including veterinarians. Visit the Region of Peel website to find health professionals and resources.
Update your banking information: If the bank you were using prior to your move does not operate in Mississauga, you need to find a bank or credit union that does. While there are several different options, the most common in Mississauga are RBC, TD, and HSBC.
Once you’ve moved into your new home, you’ll need to set up different accounts and think about some services to complete your move.
Cable and phone service providers: It’s almost essential to setup your cable and phone service once you’ve moved to a new residence. There are several different options available in Mississauga, however the more common companies are Zazeen TV, VMedia, and Rogers.
Hydro, electricity, and gas providers: Just like cable and phone services, you can’t operate your home without necessary accounts with hyrdo, electricity, and gas companies. While there are several options available in Mississauga, Alectra is a popular choice. It’s important to note that some municipalities may supply utilities to their residents themselves.
Home insurance providers: You’ve just moved into a home, it’s possibly your biggest investment to date and you want to make sure it’s protected! Visit the Square One home insurance page to find out which policy best suits your needs and to receive an online quote.
Landscaping companies: After moving into your new home, if there are any major changes you’d like to make to your lawn it may be best to hire a landscaping company. There are hundreds of options in Mississauga, but Cedar Grounds Maintenance, Beaver Landscaping, and Homeland Landscapes are common choices.
With any new home, you need to be prepared in case something does go wrong. It’s a good idea to have a resource readily available for finding companies that can offer quick repairs.
Plumbing: While there are hundreds of different options when it comes to plumbing repairs in Mississauga, this list of companies will help kickstart your search.
Restoration and renovation: If your new home needs any repairs or upgrades, it’s a good idea to check with a restoration or renovation company to make sure you’ve found the root causes to any problems. Check out Square One’s list of restoration contractors as well as a list of Mississauga renovation companies to help your search. Additionally, feel free to browse though Square One’s home improvement resource center to learn more.
Electrical: Loss of power is one of the last thing’s you want to deal with once settled into a new home. If the problem isn’t linked to your electricity provider, you should contact an electrician. While there are several different options in Mississauga, Hi-Lite Electric, Longhouse Electric, and JCL Electric are common choices.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning: If you ever notice that your new home is either too hot or too cold, it may be due to an HVAC issue which you’d want to get looked at immediately. Again, while there are several options in Mississauga, Trusted Pros, Dr. HVAC, and Air Track are popular choices.
