Very friendly online portal to select and purchase my new tenant insurance policy with Square One. A friend referred me, based on her total satisfaction to date. We both have received our promotional gifts (Amazon gift card for me, and the $25 account credit for her!). The coverage is excellent for my needs, at very good cost (good value for money). Telephone inquiry about one concern was handled promptly, courteously and satisfactorily. Thank you for the good service and product. I feel to be in good hands with Square One.
I am very pleased to be able to secure a tenant policy with less hustle. Everything done online without the involvement of any agent as I don't have time to speak on the phone. All the forms filled up are very comprehensive and easy to understand. One of the cheap premiums on the market as well. Great service! Good job.
Square One is one of the only providers who would cover our in-home pottery studio. They were thorough and requested photos but they covered us. It’s been very easy to update our coverage as the business grows and we add more services and assets, and sales locations. I love being able to do these changes online and have easy access to check my policy. The service has been great so far.
Getting tenant insurance has never been this personalized. I enjoyed that you could truly cater to what kind of home you are living in. With a click of a button, the value of your insurance would change so you could see the quote change as you figured out what works best for you. Very intuitive and user-friendly.
I would like to thank our Claims Adjuster, Brad Rotto, for all the hard work he has done while working on our claim. Our unit flooded, and there was a lot of damage done by the flood. However, Brad was very helpful, replying immediately to any question we had (and we had many!), arranging for reimbursements right away and making the entire process uncomplicated and easy to understand. It has been a real pleasure working with Brad. This was one of the rare instances when the reality exceeded the expectations. Thank you, Brad, for the impeccable service and the support received throughout!
I have bought several home insurance policies over the years. Square One was the last and has been the best. I got my house insurance with them for a few years, and now for an apartment that I am buying. You do not need to do any shopping around, and you do not go wrong if you come here directly for a great customer service experience, great coverages, at low price.
Square One insurance is so easy! You can go back and change whatever you like, whenever you like. Very easy to read, no mumbo jumbo that you can’t understand, it’s great, I love it! Thank you Square One, it’s good to know you have my back.
I decided to switch to Square One for our home insurance needs. I love how I can modify my coverage online to see the effect it will have on my premium prior to making the changes. Everything seems so out in the open and the website and quote pages are very user-friendly. Joyce F. was excellent in helping me set up our new policy! She was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient in dealing with all my questions. She got back to me every time she said she would.
Needed to find a new insurance provider as the one I'd been using for years raised premiums by a huge amount for absolutely no reason and with no explanation. So I jumped online and found Square One. The quote process was quick, easy and clear. When I had a question I asked for an agent to call me and they were very prompt in meeting the determined callback time. The chatbot is helpful as well. My quote was significantly less expensive and I have better coverage. I'm already telling all my friends about Square One.
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!

We make it easy for you to protect your things from common perils (such as water damage and theft). And, we protect your belongings on a replacement cost basis, which means you’re covered for the full cost of replacing your stolen or damaged stuff.
Tenant insurance policies from Square One also protect against accidental personal and property damage to others. So, whether your neighbour slips on your porch or you hit a stranger with your golf ball on vacation, you can rest assured that Square One has you covered.
All policies protect most common personal property items including laptops, smartphones and furniture. If you own specialty property (such as bicycles or fine arts) you can also add coverage to your policy. That way, you only pay to insure what you actually own. And, with standard deductible options ranging from $250 to $5,000, you’ll build the policy that fits your life.
Making a claim with Square One is easy. In fact, most of the process can be done online. You’ll get your own dedicated adjuster to work with you from start to finish to make sure you’re back on your feet in no time. And, Square One pays out on over 90% of all claims submitted.
