Avoiding the Funeral Trap
Avoiding the Funeral Trap

Decisions made in the first few minutes after a death occurs, can cost a family thousands, and often tens of thousands, more than they would normally spend. Statements made to authorities and funeral providers can easily set a family on a path that leads to manipulation, price gouging, and mistakes the family may regret for generations.

Funeral Negotiators provide independent advice and planning.  You keep control. You decide from a position of knowledge and strength.  You will be very pleased and confident with our advice, whether you are calling us for the first time when a death has already occurred or you are planning your or a loved one's funeral before death has occurred.
