Paying more for a funeral than you have to, makes no sense.
You wouldn’t walk into the nearest car yard and buy the first car and added extras the salesperson recommended, but that’s how most people buy funeral goods and services from a funeral director.
Although a funeral is one of the biggest purchases we will ever make, most of us don’t shop around on service and price – we pick the funeral director closest to us, or the one our family has always used.
Neither of these options provide value for money. We are emotionally and financially vulnerable and that’s the time we are likely to get ripped off.
Shopping around for funerals can save you thousands of dollars
Although it may be emotionally difficult for Australian consumers to ‘shop around’ for funeral services, it makes sense that you should use the same techniques you use with any other major purchase.
Most people assume they have to use the closest funeral home or the one they’ve used in the past (even if they weren’t happy).
Different funeral homes in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart can charge different amounts for the same service. So it pays to shop around!
Always use an Independent & Family Owned funeral home
When people do decide to shop around for funeral costs, they are not aware that they are often soliciting quotes from the same company without their knowledge. Most of the larger funeral brands in Australia are owned by large funeral chains.
These funeral chain brands are generally more expensive and work for shareholder profits and not for you and your family. They will often try to “sell” you different funeral packages.
This makes it difficult for you to compare prices and avoid being overcharged for things you never asked for, don’t want or need.
That’s why you should always use an independent funeral home. They provide a more personalised service, offer greater value for money and work for you and not the shareholders of ASX listed companies.
