I thought this was going to be a good company to work with, their online quote system seemed cool. However, after I got my mortgage company the contact and quote information from Hippo, they decided to increase the price of the premium by almost $400 at the last minute, even though not only did I kept in touch over email, I also had a conversation with a representative that went over the coverage and price before. Good thing I had a few days to find another company to work with us. Good for the people that this workout for but from my end I definitely will NOT recommend them.
I got better coverage for a huge savings compared to my current policies.. over $400 savings for my house and rental condo. The quote was super quick and the rep I spoke with was incredible. Without my saying a word, even he talked about different Hippo is regarding customer service and it truly shows. I am very very happy.
Wow, I was getting frustrated with all of the big name insurance companies and even a few of my local smaller companies. Every single company was either double the price or if they were able to come close to Hippo, their coverage amounts were not as much and had higher deductibles. I went ahead and signed up on the Hippo site and selected Escrow as my lender will be sending the funds. I am just crossing my fingers that this premium quote does not change for any reason like a bait and switch. We shall see. So far so good and thanks Hippo!
I have been insured with HIPPO since November. They cost about 1/3 of my old insurance but so far so good. I called left a message and was called back quickly. So far I am very happy especially with the rates...
The technology and ease of use is light years ahead of the competition. Truly admirable and give them an A+ for that. I just feel like they're very deceptive in communicating who your home is actually insured with. For most people homes are their most valuable assets and it's important to make sure it's insured with a company your at least familiar with. Hippo is the agent, broker, or sales person in this case. They don't pay or handle claims. What good will all the technology in the world do if your insured with a no name carrier with no claims support? You really have to dig dig dig dig to find out who the actual insurance company is and for that reason I give them a 1 star.... Read More
I've worked with Hippo Insurance. I am not a homeowner, but I would for sure want to become their customer when I become one. The team is dedicated and friendly and it's obvious that they truly care about giving their customers grade A service.
I just signed a new policy with them about two months ago as I just bought a new home. I have to say they were quite a bit cheaper than the bigger companies and I felt like the coverage was aimed more towards what I was looking to have covered. I have not made a claim on anything yet, but I did call to add more coverage and they were easy to get ahold of and had good customer service.
