I don’t understand why funeral homes think it is good to treat their customers like they are shopping for a used car.
Shopping For a Car or a Funeral?
Ever see a great advertised price for a car, and then when you go to the dealership, you discover that the advertised price isn’t the “real price.”
That is an experience that I hate.
For some reason, car dealers think it is okay to lie in their advertising, and most funeral homes agree.
If you think I am wrong, try to purchase a new car for the advertised price and not pay a destination charge, dealer fee, or preparation charge. Or call a funeral home and ask about pricing and the complete “out the door” cost.
Since these “dealer fees” are all mandatory and you can’t purchase a new car without paying some or even all of these fees, why is it okay not to include these costs in the advertised price of the car?
I don’t think it is okay to quote one price and charge another.
Yet, most funeral homes and cremation providers do precisely that and treat grieving families as if they are buying a car.
Caring for a loved one who has died is not the same as buying a car, and funeral homes shouldn’t treat families as prey to be financially hunted and skinned.
