QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CHOOSING A CREMATION PROVIDER

Published: February 25, 2019

Choosing between a burial and a cremation for loved one is a personal decision. If cremation is what you finally decide on, here are some questions you should be asking the provider:

1. Are Urns And Other Keepsakes Offered?


You would need an urn or some other suitable container to collect the ashes of the deceased once the cremation is over. Cremation providers need to provide various options for this purpose.

2. Is It Easy To Contact The Company?


When a cremation service is required, the family of the deceased should be able to handle the arrangements without much hassle and stress. This also means the service provider must be easily accessible any time of the day and night via phone as well as online.

3. Are The Services Easy On The Pocket?


Every company will have certain fixed costs for cremation but there are variable costs too. A company that provides a competitive package that suits a family’s budget with minor adjustments becomes the right selection.

4. Does The Offered Price Differ From The Actual Price?


It is not unusual to find the final bill for a cremation fattened by add-on fees that may be excluded from the original quote. A cremation is a sensitive time and it isn’t uncommon for companies to adopt high pressure tactics and scale up costs. It is necessary to ask about inclusions and exclusions and get an accurate quote before finalizing a cremation provider.

5. Does The Company Have The Facility To Hold A Service?


Some companies provide only cremation services. If you opt for their services, you will not be able to hold a farewell service. If that is an option you want, it’s important that you look for a cremation provider that has the infrastructure and offers these services.
