4 Questions to Help You Find the Right Funeral Home, Cincinnati, Ohio

Whether you’re dealing with a recent loss or starting the preplanning process, finding the right funeral home isn’t easy. Each offers unique services, and determining which meet the family’s needs could take time. Simplify the decision by asking the following questions and getting the answers you require.

4 Questions to Ask a Funeral Home

What does your basic service fee include?

The basic service fee is a non-negotiable cost every client has to pay regardless of specific requests. It generally includes planning, paperwork, storing the remains, and coordinating with cemeteries and crematories. However, since every business is different, verifying these services could prevent overspending.

How long have you been in business?

funeral homeReputation is everything when organizing a funeral service. Those that have considerable experience will have relationships with the local vendors and know the best places for materials. This alleviates the need to search and ensures that high-quality products are used.

Who will provide transport for family members?

It’s one less item to worry about on the day of the funeral. The only concern is that both the hearse and the limousine usually come at an additional cost. Ask the directors about their policies. If they’re willing to work with outside companies, then you might want to opt for one over the other to stay within budget.

How flexible are your services?

Funeral homes are usually lenient when fulfilling the wishes of the deceased. However, they may charge extra for special requests. Present the ideas and draft a plan to see what they have to offer before making a final decision.
