Often times, making a choice in funeral or cremation providers is made quickly, under stressful conditions. The following may be helpful to know you’re making a WISE choice.
1. Not all funeral providers are the same.
We find it important to give you all options and expenditures that make sense to you. Our focus is to provide kind and professional care to the decedent and the survivors. Therefore, you can expect transparent and straightforward explanations that are right for you.
2. Who is the funeral director?
Do you like to know who you are dealing with? Are the funeral directors/staff listed on the website? You should know who you are dealing with. We provide that transparency.
2. Longevity in business may not be a good indicator.
What matters most is how you are treated. We pride ourselves with experience and careful guidance. Our objective is to provide you choices that are sensible to your current needs, not the business objectives of the funeral provider.
3. Is the funeral provider forthright with their prices and offerings.
When offering the sensitive service and products that are available, we are not going to steer anyone toward making choices that are not sensible. Our offerings are straight forward and pricing is right sized for our operation. Any packaged services we offer do not exhibit groupings of service and merchandise that show unrealistic “discounts”. They are suggestions to make choices more simple for you.
4. Beware of funeral homes that are price based.
Buyer’s remorse should never happen. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. But it may happen if dealing with a faceless, internet based operation. A reputable provider will take the time to meet with you and provide options that are sensible. Knowing your loved one is being treated with respect is no mystery when you are served at Northlake Funeral Home.
