Review recent policies

Breath of fresh air for insurance.

I've been with Square One for over 2 years and I'm very satisfied with their services. Having recently compared rates, Square One is by far the most affordable option, and offers the most flexibility and customization of your plan. I'm super stoked to be supporting a local Vancouver company! You guys rock.

Comprehensive, user friendly and affordable!

Square One was our first choice for renters insurance after finding the competitor's rates prohibitive and their online insurance quote forms cumbersome. This site was simple, fast, and easy, and the insurance rates were hands down the most affordable across the board.

Great online process.

The online application process was one of the best I have come across in my life. I look forward to doing business with you.

Good for owners or renters.

I used Square One when I owned a condo, and was happy with the affordable monthly payments and ability to make changes to your policy online anytime. Now that I am renting, I am glad they have a tenant policy option as well, and am once again a happy customer.

So easy!

Very easy process to fill out my information, and I loved that I could do everything online without having to call in. I'm also happy I could do a one-time payment as opposed to monthly payments.

Great service!

The easy to use website provided us with a quote we understood and gave us a policy tailored to our needs. A quick call to their customer support center provided us with some additional information from very knowledgeable staff leaving us feeling confident we chose the right insurer.

Fast and easy.

After much searching for insurance quotes I ended up in the office of an insurance broker who happened to be a past employee of Square One. She said that she still uses them for her own insurance needs and that their rates would be way lower than anything she could quote to me. The online form was fast and easy. One less thing on my to-do list!

BEST decision ever!!!

I was in the process of shopping for tenant insurance when I saw their advertising in the Vancouver City Center skytrain station and thought I would check them out. I had received quotes from 6 other companies and still hadn't found something that was within my budget so I had nothing to lose. BEST decision ever!!! They had the best pricing... no contest. The process from start to finish was very enjoyable. They also have a team of customer support SUPERSTARS that knew ... " Read more their stuff and were very helpful answering any questions I had. I review my policy once per year to ensure the coverage meets my needs and any changes can be done online and become effective immediately. They even offer earthquake insurance which is useful living in Vancouver as well as coverage for Identity Theft. I highly recommend them!"

Great claims experience.

Our basement flooded the second day after moving in our home. Everyone involved in the process was highly professional, and addressed our concerns and questions in a very timely manner. Since insurance policies can be difficult to understand they even took the time to explain everything to us in detail to ensure no questions were unanswered. Thumbs up Square One!

Best home insurance rates in the GTA.

Really pleased with the process and the price I got for my home insurance. Highly recommended.

Rented home policy.

It was really easy to figure out the best policy options backed up with a comprehensive explanation for each option, moreover you can always call by phone or chat online to have some advice if you need help.

Quick and simple.

This is an excellent service, takes away all the hassle of dealing locally or in-person and is quick and easy to complete.


Before coming to the site I knew nothing about tenant insurance. This was the easiest process I've ever had to go through. Thank you for the simplicity and ease.

Smart website.

Intuitive, easy, and so happy you include all costs as you select your policy. Makes me trust this company far more.

Great online quote and coverage!

Great online system for this gives you many options to choose from (yes and no, ranges in prices). The choice is yours and does not take very long to do.

Great customer service.

I received great customer service right from the start and it was a major factor when deciding to purchase my policy.

Fast and informed.

Thank you for having such clear and straight forward information on your website. I had never purchased insurance before, and it was quick and easy. Plus, I called to find out a little bit more info and your rep spoke clear and gave all the information and more to have me make a secure decision with Square One Insurance. Thank you

Fastest and cheapest tenant insurance!

It was my very first time moving out and the costs just seemed to keep going up and up until I found Square One Insurance. Filling out my information was quick and easy and they gave me the absolute best rate. Don't go anywhere else! This is where it's at. Thank you!

Beautiful easy interface!

This smells like a modern company doing things properly and not being dragged down by antique workflows.

Home insurance.

I built my home insurance quote online. It was a very easy and friendly online presentation. We received fast response and confirmation. I recommend this company!

Home insurance.

Really appreciated the help and guidance whille filling out the quote. Very happy with the policy. I recommend Square One to anyone who feels intimidated by large impersonal insurance companies.


It was short, simple, and sweet. And such a great price. I can't say enough good things. Wow!!!

Best experience, best rate, best online process.

This is by far the best online insurance experience. Rate is much better than anywhere else and the online application was so simple and straight forward. In less than 15 mins, I purchased a policy and saved over $244 per year off my policy with LOT LOT MORE value. THIS IS TOP NOTCH SERVICE AND QUALITY. Just using the online portal has help me better understand my Insurance.

Amazing and seamless!

Thank you! This was the easiest purchase of insurance EVER!!! Glad to give you my business!

Professional claims service.

Scott was very professional and polite when dealing with my claim. Whether by phone or email, he did a great job to answer my questions. Thanks again and will recommend Square One to my friends.
