Funeral Services

At the time of the death of a loved one, we are faced with the difficult situation of having to decide how we want his eternal rest to be. When going to the funeral companies, they ask us many questions that, inevitably, we had not raised until that moment; consequently, information is critical to avoid falling into an ill-considered election that can later bill the consumer. Below we collect the main recommendations. Read about funerals Sydney.

Death services or prepaid burial

On the one hand, if your deceased relative has prepaid pre-funeral service, the money you have been paying for years covers the functions corresponding to that financial contribution, so you would not have to pay anything extra. However, some funeral companies will try to convince you to contribute more money in exchange for obtaining more “quality” for the farewell of your loved one. Given this circumstance, the SIC advise you that:

  • Read very carefully all the details of the service your family member had hired and ask for an exact account of what would be included. Sometimes life insurance also provides death insurance. It is advisable to check it.
  • If you decide to add something or change the category of any of the products included, ask the funeral company for a budget of the extra expense broken down by concepts. Although it is difficult at such a delicate moment, it is important not to rush to respond to the funeral company.

  If it seems enough for the funeral, do not hire anything else.

  • Demand that you hand over all the documents accrediting the settlement of expenses that the funeral company has managed with the insurance company, as well as the invoice with the extra costs that the funeral has meant.

With The Funeral Companies, At The Time Of The Commercial Relationship You Must:

Find out about the prices of all the services offered by the funeral home. The company is obliged to display a poster with information on the costs offered, disaggregating all possible rates. They also have to have a catalog with the services they provide, indicating the characteristics and prices.

Always demand a written estimate of what the entire service will cost you. Know that a funeral involves not only buying a coffin or an urn for the ashes but also: renting a room in a funeral home to watch the family member; the choice of type of casket, niche, tombstone, grave, etc. and of the corresponding inscriptions; the selection of fabrics; the preparation of the body; air conditioning of the room or embalming; the rental of funeral and personal care; the management of documentation; etc.

You are not required to contract all services with the same funeral company. You can buy the wreath of flowers on one side and the coffin on the other. You can even choose a funeral home different from the one offered by the funeral home. However, it is usually more convenient to leave everything in the hands of a single company.

Meet with your family before deciding the type of services you are going to hire. Study it calmly, depending on the needs and your economic conditions. Also, sometimes, talking to someone who is not affected by the situation at that time can help you see things more objectively.

Do not get carried away by the offers that the commercials make to you at the moment of the death of your loved one. In that situation, you can contract something impulsively, even if it is not what you want or need.
