It's your choice as to what you have at a funeral and we want to make the process of planning a funeral as simple as possible. We understand the cost and difficult decisions that sometimes have to be made when it comes to planning a funeral. Different funeral packages and pricing can be a minefield to navigate and not provide the clarity of the information you actually seek.
Whilst we already provide a full itemised price list online, we wanted to take this one step further. To create a tool that could help people pick the funeral elements they want in their own time and discover an estimate of how much it is likely to cost. Providing peace of mind that it is something they can afford but to also understand the options available and the process involved.
That is why we are proud to announce the launch of our brand-new online estimator.
Why we decided to launch the estimator
When it comes to organising a funeral, there are ALOT of different options and a process to follow. We want our clients to embrace this choice and realise it means that each funeral can be tailored to the individual and within their budget, rather than simply feel overwhelmed by the choice.
What are the benefits of our online estimator?
Whilst we pride ourselves in having a fantastic team of talented, experienced and caring staff, we understand that people are not always ready to talk to a member of our team. The estimator provides the opportunity for customers to get the answers they are after when it comes to cost without having to speak to us. They can seek these answers at a time that suits them.
Having a transparent approach is important to us. We don’t want to confuse our customers with pricing. Instead, we want to ensure people have an idea of what they want to pay and what they can afford before they contact us. People can often feel reluctant to talk about money when it comes to planning a funeral, despite budget being a key element for many of us. Having a guide to costs enables people to feel more in control and have something quickly that they can share with family and friends and get their input on before anything is confirmed. It’s important to state that our estimator does not provide a formal contract, that clients still need to contact us should they wish to proceed and final estimates to be discussed and signed when arranging a funeral. However, filling it out can be done anonymously if required and with no obligation.
We aim to be honest, trustworthy and open in everything that we do. We were one of the first funeral directors to put our prices online and always aim to be clear about the pricing of funerals. Our estimator helps us to that to a greater degree. Everyone deserves to have what they want at a funeral whilst ensuring they remain affordable.
Use our step-by-step guide to build your own estimate of funeral costs and choices in your own time, in private and without any obligation. We hope you find our estimator easy and convenient to use. When you’re ready to get in touch, our team are here to help.
