Our traditional burials begin at $4,495 for a complete service with 20 ga steel caskets. Prices increase accordingly for more expensive caskets.
A funeral bill is the third largest lump-sum expense you will face in life, after a mortgage and an automobile purchase. Consumers purchase a car more often that they arrange for a funeral, therefore the public has no clue as to reasonable funeral costs. If possible, comparison shop for funeral charges, just as you would for a new residence, a new car, or any other expensive item in your life. There are too many funeral homes out there that want the consumer to be ignorant about funeral costs; to be unaware of available options.
The average funeral cost today is $7,500.00, according to the National Funeral Director's Association. That is the average amount spent by consumers for professional services of the funeral home, casket and vault. It does not include cash advanced items, such as cemeteries charges, flowers, newspaper obituaries, and copies of death certificates. Cash advanced items would add approximately $1,800 to the bill.
We offer a special funeral service package for $4,995. This includes complete funeral services and the 20 gauge steel casket of your choice. This package was designed due to 2 factors: 1) There are some folks out there who simply do not have $7,000 or $9,000 in their pocket for funeral expenses, or do not have any life insurance, and 2) a growing number of consumers who see no value in funeral merchandise. An expensive casket is of no appeal to some people.
The $4,995 funeral service package is perfect for some folks. There are still a vast number of families who want nothing but the very best for their loved ones. We will obviously provide families with the most elaborate of merchandise, whenever desired. We have provided families with a $35,000 solid gold-plated casket in the past, and will do so again if called upon.
