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.
When I phoned, Alaina was super helpful to me as a first-time buyer and patiently explained anything I had questions about. Then I thought it was pretty cool you could customize it and mull it over online before purchasing.
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!
The people I dealt with were polite, understandable, and especially patient and clear in explaining options or choices. They were never pushy, patronizing or arrogant. It was a pleasure.
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!
Had 7 minutes to get this done while riding the SkyTrain home and got it completed as I rolled into my stop. Kudos!
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!

All policies from Square One are comprehensive (all-risk). This represents the highest level of protection currently available in Canada. 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 90% of all claims submitted.
We’re all about making things easy for you. You can choose to pay monthly or annually, and you can cancel your policy any time with no penalty (though we’re pretty sure you won’t want to). If you move, your policy moves with you. If you buy a home someday, switching to a homeowner’s policy is a breeze.
