What more can I learn about Hippo?
Although Hippo is a tech company, it relies on real humans (not robots) for Hippo Insurance services such as claims and support via phone calls, chat, email, or tweets for a better customer experience.
Hippo has added coverage for electronics you have in your home, including smart appliances. Additionally, Hippo has unique special coverage options, including water backflow and service lines.
Hippo utilizes smart home technology with a water leak sensor included with every policy. The sensor helps to detect problems when they start. Hippo is expanding on the smart home monitoring technology it uses and will be introducing more soon.
Hippo has partnered with Xfinity to provide what it calls smart home insurance. You are eligible for certain discounts if you have any Xfinity services. Additionally, if you have certain home safety devices like Xfinity Home security, you can earn more discounts.
Before making any final decisions on your insurance company, it is important to learn as much as you can about your local insurance providers, and the coverages they offer.
Call your local insurance agent to clear up any questions that you might have. Questions to consider asking include:
- What is the best coverage plan for me/my family/my situation?
- What are the minimum coverage requirements in my state and what form of coverage do you recommend?
- Do you guys offer any bundle discounts if I take out both my auto insurance and home insurance with you?
- What is the average rate of insurance quotes you guys offer?*
