I honestly never write reviews but this was the best experience I've had buying insurance or anything! Claire was very thorough, professional and even funny. Yes, funny! Nice to talk to someone who isn't like a robot. The services they offer are also very fair and we're more than happy. Highly recommend.
I would like to thank Shawn. He was such a great help during the entire process. This is my first ever insurance claim in my entire 12 plus years of home ownership. He provided good insight into the process and procedures. I'm thankful to have Shawn assist with my claim and walk me through this potentially stressful situation. The responses were prompt and professional. Truly appreciate the outstanding service.
I came across Square One while searching for a new provider. My current provider decided to increase my premium to $600/year with no explanation. I am claims-free and nothing had changed. Their broker was also less than helpful. The process with Square One is so easy, absolutely anyone can do it. Not only am I saving the $600/year increase, but my policy is even $70 cheaper than what I was paying for the same coverage! I only wish I had found this company sooner!
After many hours of research, frustration, pleading and angst, I found Square One and Armine. Most insurance providers have the same blanket policies and prices. Square One has the common sense to offer a personalized policy. You don't have to pay for more than you want, just what you need. And Armine is a credit to the company. Thank you very much.
Admittedly I'm hard to impress and have high expectations for companies when trying to solve problems I'm experiencing. That said, after calling Square One, I was met with a professional who was able to efficiently communicate and address my needs without issue. Alan was fantastic to speak to and well informed about the services I could be offered, without any type of sales pitch which is usually the expectation for these calls. I can't speak highly enough about the interaction and it certainly kicked things off well.
It's always a pain to take time out of your day to drop everything and sit on a phone for 20-30 minutes changing everything over. The online way of doing insurance is amazing and Square One does it the best.
I recently made the switch to Square One last year. I'll be honest, I had my doubts. After being with my previous insurance company for over 15 years, I was worried because the price was much lower than I previously had been paying. When I had to make a claim, my adjuster (Garry) went above and beyond any customer service I had ever received before. He was patient and understanding of my situation and he truly did care. From the beginning of my claim right to the end,
The entire claims process was extremely easy to do online and the adjuster, Erick, was very helpful and professional. I was impressed with how fast everything was reviewed and approved. I even received an e-transfer of the funds so didn't have to wait for a cheque. I highly recommend Square One as an insurance provider.
I was tired of high home insurance costs, so I decided to go online and search for more affordable insurance options in BC. In less than 5 minutes, I came across Square One. First, I was sceptical; it looked too good to be true, but I decided to give it a try. They customized the policy to my particular needs. I had been a customer for 2 years when somebody broke into our home. I phoned Square One right away and the adjuster helped us throughout the whole process of
Great service. I called about the advertised $12/month tenant insurance. In two minutes, an agent was able to verify that I qualified, explain the policy, answer questions and issue the policy. For my living situation, this policy has a better rate and better conditions than three other companies I looked into.
