I was drawn to this insurance company after reading the great reviews. I am happy to report that while speaking with Sandra, I let her know that's what drew me in and I said that those reviews are true. I was in need of a policy and after Sandra gave me a quote, she mentioned that she didn't know if I had gotten any other quotes from different companies or if I wanted to shop around. I hadn't and didn't feel the need to look anywhere else. This was the first company
I had the absolute pleasure and good fortune to speak directly with Darragh on the phone. He is absolutely patient, professional, and highly knowledgeable with the products Square One offers. I did not have any previous home insurance and Darragh helped me to compile a proposed policy catered to my home insurance needs. I am more than pleased with the quotes he came through with and I am confidently stating that I will be joining Square One Insurance as a new member. Thank you again, Darragh!
I never thought that I will give a review to an insurance company, let alone an excellent one. I dealt with Diane Parras, and what excellent customer service I got from her. She's very helpful, very patient with me, very understanding of my situation, she explained to me everything that I need to know, and she advised me of the pros and cons of every coverage. It was something that I have never experienced before with an insurance company. Thank you very much Dianne, and thank you Square One. Your website is awesome, very friendly and so easy to use.
I recently had the pleasure of obtaining a home insurance quote through Square One Insurance and they were hands down the best and most cost-effective option. I specifically worked with Anjali Tayal who was prompt and responsive, kind and knowledgeable and secured us the best rate over several other insurance companies. Anjali and the Square One team helped us quickly and made us feel confident in our choice of home and thrilled with our insurance policy. Five stars!
Bill called me to complete my quote and was extremely helpful and patient. I wasn't sure what kind of coverage I would need for my vintage musical instruments and we decided on fine arts and collectibles. Bill called me back after we had completed the quote and said he had discussed it with his supervisor and agreed that it could be included under personal property. I appreciated the attention to detail he showed and the fact that once he hung up our first call he was still thinking about how to best help me and personalize my service.
Premiums on my last property insurance company increased. I did some Google searches and Square One kept popping up—and I can see why! From completing an online request and then speaking with 2 separate agents (one for the initial quote and the second to finalize and purchase), I could not have been happier. So pleased with the knowledge, the friendliness, the helpfulness and of course the price. Very simple and efficient to get a good policy and very courteous people
Bought a boat on Sunday night and now you need to add watercraft coverage? Square One has instant policy changes. Based on the ease of service, there's simply no insurance provider I'd recommend over Square One.
I now insure both of my properties with Square One and all of my experiences with them have been great. Their online systems are super easy to use, but then when I have needed to call in with questions or to get help all of their employees are super friendly and very knowledgable and helpful. Definitely will be recommending to friends!
Many thanks to Marilen for helping my mom with home insurance. I really appreciate Marilen's patience and professionalism. In fact, I have no hesitation to send my friends and family to Square One Insurance since I’ve been a policyholder for seven years. I'm truly grateful that they’ve always been there for me—from expertly handling my claim at my Burnaby home to helping me insure a rental/vacation property in the Okanagan. I also love that I have online access to my policies at any time. So easy and convenient! Thank you, Square One!
I am so impressed with my insurance and with the people at Square One. Lily is the most thorough and nicest insurance person I have had the pleasure of dealing with. On top of the fabulous service, Square One saved me over $1200 per year compared to my previous insurance company, with whom I was an upstanding and long-time client. I never thought I would receive the value I received in combination with the great service! Thank you so much, Lily and Square One!
