Why most funeral companies don't have funeral package rates on their website?
Nowadays, Anyone can call himself a funeral director. As a result, there are major differences between funeral directors. These differences are in the quality delivered as well as in the costs. Unfortunately, it still often happens that relatives have to arrange the funeral of their loved one with a funeral director who is incompetent and makes use of the emotional and vulnerable situation of the family members.
Funeral companies that give radio advertisements, or funeral directors who are sometimes even radio announcers, are unfortunately no guarantee of quality, but a higher price.
The reason the funeral directors don't do this is that they first want to know the value of the funeral insurance and how much money you have available and then make a more expensive quote, so pay attention!
Please note: that the rates and packages are clearly stated on the funeral directors website!
