Onlia is the first insurance provider in Canada to partner with Setter, putting safety at the centre of home ownership for its home + auto customers
Toronto, ON (Sept. 9, 2020) – Onlia, provider of home and auto insurance, is the first in Canada to team up with Setter Inc. a digital home safety checkup service. Through this venture, Onlia now provides virtual home safety check ups from Setter to its new and existing customers who bundle home and auto insurance.
Setter Inc. provides homeowners with touchless home check ups that identify and analyze risks associated with fire, water and quality of life. Homeowners are provided with an overall safety score in a digital report that prioritizes action items to improve the safety of their homes.
“Onlia takes a prevention-first approach to safety,” said Pieter Louter, CEO of Onlia. “A partnership with Setter Inc. enables us to reward our bundle customers with a coach in the corner in creating a safe home environment. This empowers homeowners to improve safety for themselves and their families.”
Following initial reports, Setter’s concierge home manager alerts customers with seasonal reminders ranging from changing smoke alarm batteries, to cleaning eavestroughs. It also connects customers directly to providers when services are required, taking the guesswork out of finding someone trustworthy.
“Onlia’s distinct dedication to safety made them a natural partner in the launch of our business in Canada,” said Samantha Walsh, Head of Partnerships for Setter Inc. “It’s the first digital home inspection service of its kind in this market and we’re thrilled Onlia’s bundle customers will benefit from this new service.”
Starting today, the Setter Virtual Home Checkup will be available to Onlia bundle customers. For more information on the partnership, or to better understand what’s available through Setter, visit onlia.ca/setter.
