Shop around for funeral services

Although most consumers will pick a funeral home brand based on expensive marketing campaigns, it pays to shop around. We wouldn’t consider buying a car or paying for a wedding without learning everything we can about the product or service. The same decision making process should also apply to Perth funerals!

When selecting a funeral home in Perth, one question you need to consider is whether to engage a corporate owned company (like Seasons Funerals) or the services of a smaller, independent, family-owned funeral home. While corporate owned companies have the benefit of a well-known brand, it often means that you’ll pay a premium, and you may not have as much flexibility to personalise the funeral, so it’s worthwhile to consider all of your options. If a more personalised service is important to you, you should ask who owns and operates the funeral home you are considering.
