Whoever said they put the fun in funerals should be brought to court because it’s never fun to do funerals especially when it’s a relative or a friend that passed away. It’s already hard on its own but then it suddenly becomes thrice as hard if you’re flying all the way from abroad over to Singapore. Many write that this whole experience is like creating a mountain while in an island. Maybe that’s too much of an analogy but you get the picture. It’s extremely difficult to organize a funeral and a wake service if you’re unluckily the fish out of the water.
So, what are the things you need to consider when picking out a good funeral services in Singapore to lend a hand in dealing with paying the last respects to the deceased. Here’s a breakdown of the common things and we’ll try to add in some additional pointers and idea as we go along the way.
- How Easy they Are to Contact
One of the biggest problems people who have been in this situation comment on is how they were able to communicate and contact the Singapore funeral parlor for their needs. Think about it, you’re not a native speaker and almost everything will require you to understand the local language. Even if you have good English skills, it will eventually wane out as you interact with people who have been a part of the deceased person’s life. Make sure that the people running the funeral service or the entire event are able to pick up and talk to you in your most trying time. This will mean life and death for you to be honest and with no pun intended.
- Take a Look at their Packages
Some funeral service providers skip one thing or another with the package they offer for people in this situation. We’re not saying every provider is unscrupulous but we are giving a warning that there are people who would actually do that. Before you sign the dotted line and do business with funeral providers, you really need to inspect and thoroughly go through the funeral package in Singapore they are giving you. Don’t feel bad asking questions and clarifying things you see for this package.
- The Price
Since we’re still on the subject of pricing and packages, here’s an additional tip. Be sure to check and compare prices. We know and understand that you are tired and very sad. You lost somebody and you too want to mourn. So, the best thing to do about this is get rid of everything as soon as possible. You can also hope and find a provider that has offers competent prices and falls on the average price rates for employees.
- Look for Good Comments
Fine, good comments online can be faked, but there’s only a number of times that can happen. Most of positive reviews, especially for funeral services, won’t be faked. Who would want to fake reviews for this particular service right? Would it even feel right to lie about services like this in the midst of terrible pain and loss? So again, before signing, go and check what you have with your potential provider.
