ObituariesHelp.org launches the third edition of its Funeral Planning Guide and Bonus Funeral Planning Checklist. This is the first book of its kind to ever be written. There are no affiliations with funeral homes, funeral planners, or any other funeral service provider. This is a completely unbiased, non-partisan book about saving money when planning a funeral.
For many people, a funeral is the most significant purchase they ever make. Two main considerations when planning and paying for a funeral are value for the money and overall price. Often people select a funeral home that is close by or someone held a funeral there before, but how do people get the best deal possible? How can one get good value for the money? What questions are important to ask potential funeral directors? ObituariesHelp.org has the answers to these and many other questions in this updated version of the Funeral Planning Guide.
The third edition of the Funeral Planning Guide is full of even more helpful advice and money saving tips than the first two editions. Find out about scams that some funeral homes use to get people to pay more for fewer services. The Federal Trade Commission found that 1 out of 4 funeral homes were actually breaking the law. This book is a way to avoid being the next target of those unethical funeral homes. Some of the scams discussed in the book:
- How the funeral home itself is designed to trick people into spending more money
- How preneed funeral plans often end up costing double
- How some funeral homes sell services no one needs
- How funeral directors will assess potential wealth and charge accordingly
Ideally, funeral directors should take the time to explain the differences between their services, but in reality that is just not the case. People end up being double charged, overcharged and sold unnecessary services. It's very much a buyer beware industry and unfortunately, most people are too distraught, emotionally exhausted and simply just don't know how to negotiate prices for their loved one's funeral. That's how this book can help. Just take a peak inside, and find the best money saving tips and the best funeral planning advice that takes the guesswork and the frustration out of planning and paying for a funeral. Some of the money saving advice in the bookt:
- How to have a home funeral that costs a few hundred dollars
- The best way to keep the upper hand in negotiations
- The best places to buy funeral goods
- The most environmentally friendly green funeral
- Cremation or burial, which is the best?
- The differences between preneed funeral plans and how to avoid being scammed
- The best way to pay for a funeral
Melanie Walters, founder of ObituariesHelp.org states, "Some funeral providers have been taking advantage of families in mourning for decades and it's time for the scams to stop. This book is the result of years of research and months of writing. Now in it's third edition, I am happy to report that the response has been overwhelmingly positive. The true advantage of purchasing a book like this is the fact that there is no hidden agenda. With many other funeral planning books on the market, you'll find that the information is presented in a way that subtly sells a particular funeral service or funeral product. That is not the case here; this book was researched 'under cover' and written in secret, based on actual experiences and investigation."
