Gone are the days where every family wants a traditional service (and has to deal with a traditional price tag.) Now, funerals can be as unique as the person they’re honouring. So where does the future of funeral services lie? Short of getting our hands on a crystal ball, it’s hard to know for sure. But as one of the first funeral service industry distruptors, we’ve got a few ideas.
Affordable Funeral Services
Don’t want to spend upwards of $10,000 on a funeral? Then don’t. With today’s flexibility as far as cremation, burial, and other aspects of the funeral service are concerned, there’s no need to spend a dollar more than you’re comfortable with. Direct cremation continues to skyrocket in popularity, in part due to its economic benefits. It’s also an ideal way to create a custom service tailored to your specific needs. Add in a wide variety of caskets and urns at all price points and you’ve got everything required to keep prices in check.
Bespoke Funerals and Memorial Events
You can plan every single detail of a wedding, right down to a specific shade of pink peony in a bouquet. Why shouldn’t funerals be the same? Your funeral or memorial service is an opportunity for the people who love you to gather one last time to celebrate everything that makes you so wonderful. If you’re a minimalist with a penchant for good coffee, mention this when you meet to preplan your funeral. Want champagne to flow like water? Just say the words. There are no hard rules as far as how a funeral should play out. What matters is that it represents the person it honours in the best way possible.
In the age of (near) complete access to information, it seems especially unwise to try to conceal the true cost of things from consumers. At Basic Funerals, we’ve been big on transparency since day 1. Our quotes for affordable funeral services are comprehensive and outline every charge so that the families we serve know exactly where their money is going. From the caskets to cremation, we make it easy to compare with other establishments and promise that what you see is what you get, no surprises.
