What Pre-Planning Is

For those of you unfamiliar with this type of funeral arrangement, it is essentially someone planning and taking care of the details of their own funeral services ahead of time. While it may sound strange and uncomfortable, it is actually a very thoughtful, proactive, and wise decision when you think about it. When a loved one has passed, things are chaotic enough as is and the last thing anyone wants to do is plan the details of an organized event. Pre-planning takes care of everything in advance so that your loved ones can focus on grieving and celebrating life lost.

Why People Choose Pre-Planning Services

The most prominent reason people choose pre-planning funeral arrangements is what we mentioned earlier — the task of planning details won’t fall to your loved one while they are trying to process everything that’s happening. This gives your loved ones much fewer things to handle and removes the pressure of people feeling like they need to plan the perfect funeral that you would have loved. 

In addition to removing items from family members’ plates, pre-planning funeral arrangements enables you to lock in a rate early on and never have to worry about it down the line. Typically, the earlier you take care of the pre-planning details, the less you will have to pay. Please note that this is NOT a way of locking you into being served by a specific funeral home. Pre-planning is solely for the benefit of you and your family and it can be transferred if need be. This type of funeral arrangement is simply a great way to make your wishes known and avoid loved ones worrying about planning a funeral “how they would have wanted.”
