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!
Thank you for the easy renewal for our home insurance. We have been very happy with Square One and were really happy that upon renewal our home insurance went down. I can not remember the last time, if ever, that upon renewing home insurance our policy for the year was less than the year before.
I spent a while looking at options for rental insurance. Even called a local broker. Square One provided, by far, the best process. The online forms clearly indicate what your options are, allow you to weigh the pros and cons of your selections against alternatives, and provide immediate feedback on price. The wording on the policy itself is also clear and easy to understand, and when I requested a callback to ask about coverage limits, I received a call right away, and the fellow I spoke with was super helpful.
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 literally set up new rental insurance at my new place in less than 10 minutes online. The questioning was easy, thorough and concise. I had my new policy by email just a minute after completing it online. Pricing was very fair with yearly and monthly payment options. Highly recommend!
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!
Such a painless process. Transparent and easy to follow along. I love picking and choosing the coverages that I want and seeing my payments adjust accordingly, instead of an agent telling me what insurance coverages I have and what I will be paying. I highly recommend Square One. My rate actually dropped from what I paid last year! Amazing.
