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!
I was terrified in having to find insurance for a condo with a $250k strata deductible as I didn't even know what a strata deductible is... plus we want to rent out this condo short term, (and insurance companies don't cover that), all this was making my head spin. Then I got Birgitta on the phone—calm, smiling, and patient she explained everything and took me through the process. I can not express my gratitude as I was really dreading this task I had. Thank you Square One for being able to cover a complicated case. And Birgitta for helping me understand all without making me feel lost .
Just like they say in their advertising, it takes only 5 minutes to get a quote and buy a policy. The forms are easy to understand and complete. The questions are short and pertinent and you can reduce or opt out of some coverages if they are not applicable to your situation. When I phoned the office for some clarification my call was answered right away by Josh, who was very professional and helpful. I like the fact that the office is here in Vancouver and not back
I was drawn to this insurance provider 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 provider, 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 provider. 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.

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.
