Common sense approach

If you need a law degree to understand your home insurance policies and practices, something’s wrong. (Actually, even lawyers have a tough time understanding and explaining a home insurance policy!) At Square One, we’re changing that.

Rather than simply do things the way they’ve always been done, we decided to start from, well, square one. Our home insurance policies and practices are designed to meet the needs of customers living in urban centres today. And, we take full advantage of technology to ensure everything that we do is as efficient and effective as possible.

Another efficiency you’ll like is that all your policy documents are sent to you immediately by email. Not only is this more convenient, but it’s more environmentally friendly. In fact, we’ve saved over 600,000 pieces of paper between October 2011 and March 2014.

Pay annually or monthly.

You can choose to pay monthly or annually by bank withdrawal or credit card.

Our monthly payment plans is fee-free and interest-free.

Cancel without penalties.

Most insurance force you to enter into a 1-year contract. If you cancel early, you’re subject to a penalty of up to 25%.

Our policy renews on a monthly basis and you can cancel after the first month without penalty.

Understand your policy.

If you need a law degree to understand your policy, something’s wrong.

At Square One, we’ve worked hard to make our policy the easiest to read in the industry.
