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!
The whole process was so easy and straightforward. I was treated like a valued customer, not a potential liability. And their commitment to not using jargon is real! I feel 100% confident in my understanding of my policy: what is covered, what is not, how and when to make a claim (knock on wood I don’t have to). AND it's almost half the cost of my previous insurance policy. Would and will recommend to all my loved ones!
Nothing but the best experiences with Square One. Knowledgeable Staff, so kind and courteous to deal with. Great products, simple user interface. I look forward to using them for our entire real estate portfolio. Great job, way to change the landscape of the industry, keep up the amazing work.
I love that it tailors the policy to your needs. I was able to easily answer questions online to ensure adequate coverage for items like our expensive bicycles and opt for less coverage for things we don’t have like expensive art or jewellery. The best quote I’ve gotten so far, while still ensuring adequate coverage. I signed up. Well done Square One! I’ll be sure to share the good word with my cycling community!
I called Square One because my current insurance provider wanted to charge me $323 a month for insurance on my rental home. It was easy to get started, I had someone I could talk to and everything worked well. I also got a much cheaper policy to cover everything I needed, and I don't think I skimped on any details I might need. Very satisfied.
Forms and four-step process were super smooth! Questions were easy to understand and answer. This is really great compared to other insurance options out there! Your website is super, super friendly and gave me a great guided experience! Good job, guys!
