What happens during a pre-planning meeting?
Pre-need conferences can be broken down into three portions; getting to know you, information gathering and discussing your options.
Getting to know you
During this portion of our meeting, we simply want to learn more about you or the person you are making plans for. We will sit down, have a cup of coffee and talk about what is important to you in terms of memorialization.
This is where we get all of the vital information we might need, including details we would need for documents such as a death certificate.
Discussing your options
Finally, we will discuss all of your options for memorialization, including service packages, burial preferences and any customizations you may select. Once we have your details recorded, we will provide you with a final cost for your service with a detailed breakdown. To complete our meeting, we will discuss payment options.
After your meeting is complete, you will receive a record of every thing we discussed.
