Be wary of discount funeral services

My colleagues and I see a growing number of people going out of the area for discount cremation services. The problem is, people don’t know what they want! They don’t know the questions to ask, and they can’t tell if they are being under-served because in many cases, they don’t have much, if any, previous experience in planning a funeral.

There are lots of companies out there claiming to offer “simple” or “affordable” (fancy word for discount) services. These are generally MINIMAL type services with lots of add-ons. By the time you’re done, you’ve actually saved precious little in money, except you’ve traveled to Green Bay or Appleton, and most likely multiple times, and you haven’t gotten the level of care that your local funeral director can provide.

We, meaning myself and my colleagues, are “full service” funeral providers. Speaking for myself, I have been involved in the planning of thousands of funeral or memorial services; therefore, there is a perceived skill set when it comes to dealing with the bereaved.funeral director graphic

When soliciting the services of a discount provider, it’s important to note that you may in fact be sacrificing the “service” you were seeking in the first place; service meaning wisdom and experience in planning a meaningful send-off for your loved one.
