Funeral Planning | 0 Comments |

MY mother shocked me. “I suppose I should tell you what I did today,” she said casually preparing morning tea from her retirement home in Arcadia Waters, Mandurah. “Oh yeah,” I said, fully expecting to hear something mundane. “I just planned my own funeral today,” she said.

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.

By obtaining a Single Funeral Permit you become the ‘Funeral Director’ and it is your responsibility to arrange all permits and applications as well […] ezifunerals.com.au/diy-funerals-a-complex-undertaking-or-a-rewarding-experience/

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!
