The cost of a funeral service has become debilitating to many families in Arkansas, and the days of just entrusting a local Fayetteville funeral home to do a service without setting a budget for the cost of the funeral are coming to an end. Read on to find out how to save thousands by arranging a direct cremation service in Fayetteville.
More families are struggling financially, and many are just deciding that overpaying for a funeral is not dignified and is not a measure of how much you loved someone. There are much lower cost funeral alternatives if you seek them out. Traditionally because people did not compare funeral prices in the same way, funeral homes were not pitched against each other in a ‘price comparison’ manner.
Typically funeral homes focused on their features of long-standing tradition and impeccable community service. Today this can mean the difference between paying $2,000 or $8,000 for a funeral service and this is a BIG difference just for a heritage!
How can I save on funeral costs?
Firstly, make sure you DO compare prices between funeral homes. I can assure you that you will be quite surprised by how much the same items from a funeral home’s General Price List (GPL) will vary. All funeral homes must have a GPL according to Federal Law.
A funeral home that happily discloses prices, be it on their web site, or when you phone understands the need for transparency in today’s funeral market. If they seem unwilling to openly disclose prices this should raise alarm bells.
