Death isn't something we can avoid. However, most of us avoid speaking about it. Despite this, many people have begun to pre-plan funerals. There is quite a lot of curiosity about what is involved in the process. At Ocean County Cremation Service, our experience has been that once people understand what is involved in pre-planning, they are more open to opt for it.

Why Planning Ahead Is A Good Idea

There are many reasons to pre-plan, and here we look at a few of them:

  • Pre-planning allows you complete control of all aspects of the ceremony. For example, you can decide which casket you want, the type of flower arrangements, music, etc., that you wish to have at the service.
  • Based on your budget, you can determine which service you want, and the funeral director will create the contract accordingly. For example, some people prefer a straightforward service while others want something more elaborate. Regardless of your requirement, a credible funeral home like ours will always go the extra mile to ensure that you get the type of funeral plan you want.
  • The costs of a funeral service can be expensive for some families. However, planning your funeral and paying for it ensures that your family does not have to worry about the costs.
  • Pre-planning is also cost-effective because the price is locked in when you sign the contract. It means that no matter how much inflation levels rise, the amount you have paid stays the same over the years.
  • Many funeral homes also provide easy payment options where you can pay in installments for the funeral service. This aspect is something you would have to check with the funeral home before you pre-plan.
