Contrary to popular belief, most funeral directors are willing to give discounts to families that ask in an appropriate manner. Many goods and services provided by a funeral home can easily be discounted by several hundred (or even several thousand) dollars before the funeral home starts to lose money. Since most funeral homes buy their merchandise from the same few suppliers, they should be able to sell their goods and services for a similar price.
However, if you come across a particular funeral home that is selling its merchandise for considerably more than other funeral homes in the area, they may be a good candidate for negotiating a lower price on funeral costs.
If you don’t want to do the legwork yourself you can use a resource like the Funeral $aver’s Kit to quickly gauge which items are negotiable and how much of a discount is realistic. The kit also shows you the proper way to discuss and negotiate a discount with the funeral director. This simple, non-confrontational method has been proven to increase your chances of getting a fair deal.
