When planning a funeral, cost doesn’t necessarily equate to quality. For example, many of the large corporate funeral homes have expensive advertising costs. A great many staff, a fleet of hearses and mourning cars, as well as chapels scattered throughout Victoria. This all comes at a cost, and guess who pays for it? You.
On average the large funeral companies will charge you around 50% more than the smaller family owned and operated businesses. Interestingly, while the independent funeral homes are cheaper, the service they provide surpasses that of the large companies.
How can this be? Well it makes sense, the independent family owned and operated businesses don’t have a fleet of hearses and mourning cars, they don’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising, they don’t have chapels scattered throughout the suburbs. This accounts for the reduced fee?
The next tip will discuss how the smaller independent funeral homes level of service surpasses that of the larger funeral homes.
