When comparing prices with other funeral homes, you must be careful to compare like goods and services and the total price. Some funeral homes give a perception of low cost by giving a basic service charge, only to add on other expenses for services families desire and should expect with funeral service. Some will under price their total service expense and then over price merchandise. It is also important to remember that all funeral homes do not provide the same quality of service. Merchandise must be considered on equal levels in comparison. Different manufacturers, thickness and type of metal used, workmanship and quality of wood used, type and strength of burial vaults must be considered when comparing costs.
Our General Price List is available upon request.
Our highest priority when called upon by families is to provide caring, compassionate, and dignified funeral service and to be accommodating in the choices of services and merchandise that you choose.
Secondly, it is fair to say in these business dealings that the funeral home shall expect to be paid in a timely fashion for the arranged services and merchandise as anyone else would expect.
We have been and always will be understanding to the financial burden that funerals can cause, however, The funeral home is a small business and it depends greatly on its patrons. It is not a bank or lending institution.
Payment Options/Insurance Claims
Many payment options are available at Taylor Family Funeral Homes. We accept Cash, Check, insurance, or we will arrange financing for those who qualify. Clients choosing to pay cash are requested to settle their accounts within 10 days; in extenuating circumstances special payment arrangements can be made.
We will notify life insurance companies and pension benefit plans and assist you in filing claims to allow you to receive the benefits you are due in a timely manner. This service is provided at no additional cost to you. If you should choose to pay the funeral expense from the insurance proceeds, you may assign just the amount due the funeral home and receive the excess funds directly.
By being financially sound and keeping accounts receivable to a minimum we will be able to keep the overall prices of our services and merchandise more affordable.
With deepest gratitude,
