Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. You have a choice. You do not have to hire a traditional funeral home to serve you when a death occurs. A business such as Columbia Cremation Care Center is a fully licensed funeral home without the high overhead costs. Only pay for what you will be using; no need to pay a huge price.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Most old fashioned funeral homes don't want to do cremations. They are not nearly as profitable as a traditional funeral. Some will attempt to pressure you into purchasing items or services you don't want. These items help them regain some of the profit they think they are losing by helping a family desiring cremation.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. An important question to ask is where will you loved one be kept until the cremation takes place. Most funeral homes do not have a cool morgue facility on site.
The MOST IMPORTANT question is who will be performing the cremation. It is rare for a funeral home to have cremation facilities on site. Ask if they have actually visited the business that will be doing the cremation. Some facilities are no operating legally or ethically.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. In some parts of the country cremation is still not the norm. Talk to your family to determine how they feel about cremation. Unless you sign to authorize your own cremation prior to death your closest next of kin will have to give that permission.
