At George Darte Funeral Chapel, we've seen that pre-planning one's funeral is becoming more frequent, and there are many reasons behind it. Some are adamant about how they want their funeral to be handled after their death, and there are those who want to avoid any family strife over how the service should be conducted.

Some people would rather pay for their own funeral than put this financial burden on their loved ones, which is understandable given the cost of a funeral. When you pre-plan, funeral directors at a chosen funeral home will need to know about your wishes and preferences.

They'll tell you everything you need to know about the options available to you and help you make an informed decision. Packages are also available at several establishments. As soon as you've decided, you must sign a contract and pay for the services you've selected. This pricing will be fixed.

Switching to Another Funeral Home

Most people don't switch funeral homes once they've planned and paid for their service at an establishment. However, they may have no choice but to agree in other cases. There are occasions when a person needs to change homes because they're moving to a new city or town or find that a new home offers superior overall services.

Most reputable funeral homes provide clients with the option to switch but may impose a fee or other penalties for doing so. Changing your funeral arrangements is possible, but you should double-check before signing any contracts to ensure that the establishment you choose will allow you to do so.
