Kevin is a true pleasure to work with! He is very professional, effective, knowledgeable and most importantly, genuinely cares about his customer. This is the first claim I have ever made. He explained everything in great detail and answered all my questions with patience and even shared some tips on how to prevent this from happening again. I felt I was talking to a friend in the end. With Kevin's help, I replaced the laptop shortly after the claim was made, and the school work was not affected. Thank you, Kevin. You made a difference in my life! I'm glad I chose Square One.
As I filed my very first insurance claim, I was a bit skeptical and worried at the time. As I dealt with Square One, this predetermined notion was absolutely not warranted. Our adjuster Kevin was very professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns in handling the claim. Thank you Square One! For those who are on the fence, I give my absolute satisfactory approval with them. They might not be the cheapest but they will deal with your claim most fairly.
The Square One agent who helped me open my policy was friendly, informed, and helpful. She walked me through each phase of the paperwork, patiently explained those aspects of the policy that were unfamiliar to me, and provided information that supported my decision making. Very professional and a delight to talk to.
Learn how you’re protected
with Square One
When you buy condo insurance from us, the experience is straightforward from quote to claim. Learn more below about the coverages, deductibles, protection and claim service offered by Square One. You can also download sample policy wordings.
Personal property and specialty coverages. Traditional providers don’t give you much control when it comes to insuring the contents of your home. They include pre-packaged protection that is based on your house’s rebuild cost. And, they automatically include protection for specialty property whether you own it or not.
At Square One, you decide what specialty property you insure and for how much. You also decide how much protection you need for your most common personal property, which includes appliances, electronics, furniture and clothing.
Bicycles sporting equipment, firearms and watercraft: This optional coverage protects firearms of any description, and any personal and portable equipment used for athletic or recreational activities. This includes cycling, equestrian, fishing, golf, hang-gliding, hockey, hunting, paragliding, shooting, skating, skiing, snowboarding, surfing and windsurfing. It also protects commercially manufactured boats, canoes and kayaks. Any watercraft must be no more than 20 feet in length and, if motorized, must have no more than 25 horsepower in total. And, it protects related property like accessories, equipment and trailers.
Business property: This optional coverage protects any property that you use as part of your trade, profession or occupation. If used for both business and personal purposes, it must be insured as business property. Note that this coverage does not protect business operations/exposures in any other way.
Fine arts and collectibles: This optional coverage protects visual art, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, limited edition prints, and other pieces that cannot be easily replaced, like hand-woven or hand-knotted rugs or carpets made in Asia. It also protects any items collected as a hobby, for display, or as an investment whose value may appreciate, including sports card collections, first edition books, and coin collections. And, it protects any porcelain ware, plates, cups, saucers that are used on special occasions; eating and serving utensils made of silver that are also used on special occasions; and figurines made of porcelain or ceramic material.
Jewelry and watches: This optional coverage protects objects designed for the adornment of the body, including necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, watches and precious stones.
Condo coverages. The most common condo insurance coverages are listed below. For each of these coverages, we’ll help you determine what limit of insurance is right for you. Unlike our competitors, we don’t force you to buy protection you don’t need.
Condo property protection: Protects against amounts you are assessed to offset a property insurance deductible paid by your condominium corporation. It also protects against repair costs to the building and common areas that: (1) fall beneath your condominium corporation's property insurance deductible; (2) are not covered by your condominium corporation's property insurance; or, (3) result from a shortfall in your condominium corporation's property insurance.
Condo improvements, fixtures and glass: This optional coverage protects any upgrades, additions or alterations made to your condo unit after it was originally built, whether made by you or a previous owner. It also protects any countertops, flooring, glass or other fixtures in your unit that you are responsible for insuring under the bylaws of your condo corporation.
Other coverages. There are a few other coverages that are essential to any insurance policy, including liability protection.
Identity theft resolution and expense reimbursement services: Protects against expenses incurred to restore your personal credit file after your identity has been stolen.
Policy deductibles. A policy deductible is the amount you must pay before your home insurance policy will respond. For example, if your $2,500 laptop is stolen and the claim is subject to a $1,000 deductible, you must pay the first $1,000 and your policy will cover the remaining $1,500. The higher the deductible you select, the lower the premium you pay on your insurance.
Below are the various deductibles that may apply. It's important to note that only one deductible applies per claim even if payments are made under multiple policy coverages. The type of loss will determine the deductible that applies.
Comprehensive protection. At Square One, you get a comprehensive (all-risk) policy. That means you're protected against all types of loss, except for those listed in the exclusions. Commonly covered losses include break-ins, burst pipes, hailstorms, fires, and more. Commonly excluded losses include coastal floods, repeated leakage, and wear and tear.
