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 love how you can customize your coverage! We didn't need some of the insanely high coverage that other insurance companies provide solely based on the home value. This allowed us to reduce our annual insurance costs by $350 and we now have the coverage we actually desire!
Needed tenant insurance for my new place by the end of the day, and really couldn't afford to take on another bill. My car insurance company quoted me $40, Square One did it for $14 and emailed proof of insurance to my landlord in a matter of minutes. Couldn't have been better or easier.
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!
Knowledgeable and helpful staff, great efficient website... I appreciate the coverage options and the ease of changing policy coverages as the situation changes. Square One is a company designed for the way people do business today.
Every time I’ve needed to change my policy they do it so quickly for me and so easily. They set it up online and I just review it! Also, I had a claim one time and they were so nice and helpful and paid out the claim ASAP! Recommend these guys to friends always.
If I had known getting tenant's insurance could be so straightforward, affordable, and quick, I would have switched from my old insurer months ago. The specialist I spoke with, David Horgan, was super friendly and nice to talk to. He also was very knowledgable and patiently answered all my questions, and helped my girlfriend and I find the best policy for our needs. He was never pushy and never tried to up-sell me on anything. Overall a great experience and a better insurance policy than my old one for 2/3 of the cost. Thanks Dave, and thanks Square One!
I obtained a quote online from Square One and found the process very easy. The premiums quoted were about 50% lower than what I was paying with my previous insurance company. Getting the new plan setup was a breeze. Loved saving money and going through a hassle-free experience.
We just renewed our insurance in less than 10 minutes! Square One makes it easy to understand what's in the policy we choose, how it affects the monthly premium, and what the exclusions are. Their materials are clear, easy to click through and select, and changes we made from last year's policy to this year's are clearly summarized. Love it! Highly recommend using!
Swati is amazing! We've been experiencing drastic hikes to our home policy over the last few years (with no claims) which is why I reached out to Square One. Swati not only made the process of getting a quote simple, but she was able to offer us better coverage for less than half of what our current policy wants us to renew at. She made the entire process a breeze which is not what one would expect when looking for a new home insurance policy. I wish I would have found out about Square One years ago. Thank you!
