Don’t Let Funeral Costs Scare You

What is the one thing that scares most people about funerals? The costs! In the United States, the typical cost of a funeral can range to over $10,000 easily. Due to the cost of a funeral, many people avoid pre-planning their funeral. However, who does this cost fall to when you do die? This is something to take into consideration. So, how can you overcome these funeral costs?

Here at Tindall Funeral Home, we are a family based business. This is the core of who we are. We are a family who wants to help you in this time of need. For this reason, our prices are often considered a bit lower than major funeral homes in the area who are charging more and more every year for the same services. In addition, we offer a price match policy that ensures you are getting the lowest price that is possible!

Is there anything that you can do to lower the price of funerals?

Many people opt for life insurance policies that do include some help with the funeral, which can offset the cost out of your pocket. This is a great idea, and we highly recommend that people look into this. Other people prefer to pre-plan their funeral and pay in installments to help offset this major cost coming out of your accounts at once. In addition, you may want to consider if there are special extras that you are wanting, as these types of requests can raise the price of a funeral.

While we understand that the total funeral cost can be scary, you must realize that this is something that everyone has to deal with at one point or another. You must overcome this fear and realize just how important it is to have your affairs in order before you die, as this cost can fall to your family in the end.
