I Pre-Planned with One Funeral Home, Can I Switch?

A common inquiry with pre-arranging your funeral service, is if it can be transferred to a different funeral home later on if you happen to change your mind. Most people are unaware of their transferability rights and may hesitate to pre-arrange all together due to this confusion. Pre-planning gives you a peace-of-mind and should be stress free for you and your family.

When you pre-plan and happen to decide later on in time that you are interested in a different funeral home than the original you chose already, do not worry! This is your funeral service and circumstances, preferences, and even zip codes change sometimes. You can absolutely transfer your pre-arrangement from one funeral home to another to meet your needs and desires.

In the case of a transfer all you need to do is the funeral home you are transferring too will take care of all the necessary paperwork for transfer, without any penalty, at any given time. In fact, they will complete the requested transfer on their behalf with the approval of you by signature.

As mentioned previously, these are your arrangements that you made to fit your needs. The funeral home you choose will cater these arrangement’s according to your specifications. If you have any further pre-need questions or would like to start a pre-plan today, contact Tindall Funeral Home, click here
