Funerals are Expensive aren’t they?
Have you ever noticed that Funerals are quite expensive considering what you are getting? A big part of that cost is the price of the coffin or casket itself.
Some funeral directors are quite happy to place a 400-600% margin on top of the cost of the coffin, and people at that time are usually in no mood to negotiate and also they don’t want to appear cheap!
The worst offenders for this are the large chains of funeral directors such as Co-Op and Dignity which have a more commercial focus than a small independent funeral director. Also, beware the sign on the door. Even though it says “Such and Such & sons” the business could have been taken over by a larger group who have left the name on the door.
Here at Comparethecoffin.com, we believe you can have the funeral and coffin or casket of your choice, but at the best possible value, backed by a price promise.
So we directly challenge the Co-Operative Funeral Care, Dignity Funerals and the other large chains to allow people to purchase their own coffins or caskets directly and have them delivered to their premises. At different times, these companies have put obstacles in the way of families by not allowing this.
Comparethecoffin.com allows you to:
- Purchase a coffin from the Coffin Shop – either if you have already decided which Funeral Director to use or are organizing the funeral yourself (an increasingly popular option).
- Create a free Future funeral plan, which can be printed and or emailed to the recipients you choose.
- Create an Immediate funeral plan which is then sent to hundreds of funeral directors who can offer their services directly to you.
We need to tell the public that they don’t have to pay the high prices demanded, and join the thousands of other already using the internet to compare coffins and funeral directors, ensuring they do not pay “over the odds” and that you can choose the funeral that’s right for you.
