SHOULD I SHOP AROUND FOR A FUNERAL DIRECTOR?

YES! Not all Funeral Directors are the same. So it pays to do your homework!
Funeral costs charged by funeral homes can vary significantly. Most publicly listed funeral brands don't provide an itemised quote for the cost of a funeral. So you may pay thousands of dollars more for things you don’t want or need. Although, it may be emotionally difficult for you to shop around for funeral services, it makes sense that you should use the same techniques you use with any other major purchase.

DON’T PAY TOO MUCH FOR A FUNERAL!
Understand Your Funeral Rights and Shop Around

A recent report into the funeral industry last year found consumers are often unnecessarily upsold on funerals due to a lack of information and real competition, in an industry that is lightly regulated. According to Morgan Stanley, rather than hiking its prices, ASX-listed company InvoCare appears to have improved its revenue from up-selling to more expensive funerals. InvoCare occupies 40 percent of the funeral industry market with over 30 brands including White Lady, Simplicity, Guardian, Purslowe, Chippers, Hansen & Cole and W.N. Bull.

So you could be paying significantly more for a funeral by choosing an InvoCare brand as opposed to an independent and family owned funeral home. So it pays to do your homework!

That’s where eziFunerals can help! eziFunerals is an independent consumer advocate that lets you shop and compare funeral homes, find the best prices, make sensible decisions, and discourage emotional overspending on elaborate arrangements that family members might be tempted to purchase in their bereavement. Best of all it’s FREE and could save your family thousands of dollars. ezifunerals.com.au/get-a-quick-quote/
