The concept of pre-planning a funeral is gaining some traction among people that do not want to burden their families with their funeral arrangements and costs. A funeral can be expensive and challenging to organize. Pre-planning is an excellent way to make sure that all of these aspects are taken care of while you are alive.

Reasons To Pre-Plan

If you are wondering whether you need to pre-plan now, take a look at why it's best to do so before you need it:

  • Even if you are in the pink of health now, you wouldn't know if your health would be affected sometime soon. In that circumstance, you might not be able to pre-plan your funeral even if you desired.
  • Death can come without warning, and if you feel strongly about pre-planning, it's best not to defer the process.
  • If you have some specific ideas about how you want your funeral to be, discuss these with the funeral director and create a plan. They will explain everything to you and help you make the right decisions.
  • The costs of funerals rarely every decrease and inflation has a role to play in the rising costs of these services too. When you pre-plan and pre-pay for your funeral, you don't have to be concerned about these aspects. You never have to pay anything more once you have signed the contract regardless of market conditions.

When you choose to pre-plan your funeral, you are making sure that your wishes will be followed after your death. Your family won't have to bear the costs or go through the trouble of arranging your funeral.

This is why it’s best to pre-plan before you need it. If you want to know more about our funeral services, feel free to contact us at Wagg Funeral Home today. We'll be happy to help with your funeral service or pre-planning needs.
