The application process at Hippo is actually pretty remarkable, as they promise you a quote in under 60 seconds – and they’re not lying. All you need to do is type in your address, and Hippo almost immediately shoots back information about your home’s specs, including:
- The year it was built
- Square footage
- Roof type
- The age of your roof
- Family units
- Whether or not your home has a swimming pool
- Construction type of the home
One of the few things you can't do online with Hippo is file a claim for losses. In fact, if this company is lacking in one area, it's the general lack of clarity for how the claims process actually works.
If you want to file a claim with Hippo, you need to dial their claims department indicated on their website. From there, you're assigned a claims advocate who manages your claim from beginning to end.
Other types of property insurance offered
Aside from homeowners insurance, Hippo also offers condo insurance, which protects your condo's structure, all your stuff inside, and any additional liability coverage you need to supplement your HOA's master policy.
