What are pre-planned funerals?

Working with an established, reputable funeral home who offers pre-planned funerals means you can curate your ideal send off, choosing each detail personally, while taking care of costs in advance.
Benefits of pre-planned funeral services Perth
Choosing to pre-plan your funeral is a truly empowering decision, letting you take control so you can rest easy knowing everything is taken care of. If these advantages are not enough for you to consider the power that comes from preparing ahead of time, here are further benefits of preplanning your send off.
A gift to your loved ones
Losing someone close to you is a devastating time to go through, and the stress of having to arrange a funeral only adds to the suffering. Choosing a pre-planned funeral relieves your loved ones of the emotional and financial burden of organising a service, allowing them space to properly grieve.
Record your wishes
Being able to make key decisions for your funeral is very important for many people, ensuring you have the send-off you desire. But regardless of whether you care about this or not, pre-planning your service frees your loved ones from having to make these important decisions after you’ve gone.
Avoid rising costs
While it can be tempting to avoid thinking about funerals when you have a lot of life yet to live, the truth is costs in Australia are rising every year. Delaying funeral arrangements could potentially leave your loved ones with a huge financial burden, or even wipe out your savings when the time comes to pay for your funeral.
Pay in instalments
One of the benefits of pre-paying your funeral is the ability to pay off the costs in instalments. This removes the stress of large, upfront payments, whether from you or your loved ones, allowing you to focus on creating the best possible funeral for your wishes, as well as enjoying your daily life. This investment removes the need for funeral insurance while maximising your pension.
Take your time
Having to make rushed decisions is never ideal. Working with empathetic Perth funeral directors to plan your funeral now removes the pressure from doing so during a difficult time, or leaving those tough choices for your loved ones to navigate after you pass.
