- Know what type of services you want before you begin calling funeral homes. By doing this you can avoid being sold an expensive package.
- Ask for a list of prices that outline all of the services.The funeral home is obligated to provide you with one if you ask for it. The opportunity to look at the list without the funeral director will allow you to choose the services you need without possibly feeling pressured.
- Do your homework. Call multiple places and compare prices.
- Plan the entire service including what will happen after the funeral service.
