Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
According to the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), in 2005 there were 778,025 cremations performed in the United States, with projections of a 38.15% increase every five years. A new site, cremation-usa.com, has been developed to assist in satisfying the increasing public demand for cremation services. The site aims to give customers control to choose a cremation service that matches the quality, price, and options they are seeking. From pickup and transport of the deceased,to organization of the memorial service, the site was found to have something for every need.
Cremation-USA was developed out of the idea that when a loved one is lost, traveling to a mortuary to meet, plan and pay for services is time consuming, and during difficult times people who experience a loss need to spend time with loved ones. What if a situation presents itself where a relative wants to have input, or see exactly how the services are being arranged, but they live out of town. The site gives instant access for those who are out of town but need to see what is offered and even schedule the service out of state. The site serves to offer an alternative that accommodates a larger spectrum of people, while at the same time, give prospective customers numerous options.
Specific options the site offers are transportation of a loved one from place of death to mortuary facility. They will arrange a conference with a licensed funeral director. They will also assist the customer with obtaining death certificate information, help obtain a Health Department permit, notify Social Security, handle care and refrigeration of the deceased, and provide a basic, sanitary, sealed box for remains. If the need arises cremation-usa.com will also schedule services with the Department of Veterans Affairs. They do explain that if a deceased is 300 lbs. and above, additional charges will apply due to the need for additional personnel, special equipment, and special logistics in transporting remains.
One service was found to be of particular convenience and value, this service was pre-need cremation arrangements. The idea the company has on offering pre-need service is that people want to know what will happen when they pass and often times want to pay for it ahead of time to ensure no loved one has to bear that burden. Whatever the specification of service may be, the site provides a solution.
