What Makes You Less Expensive?

Preferred Cremation and Burial is able to provide you with tremendous savings for several reasons. Unlike traditional funeral homes, we do not own a huge facility. Our facility is modest. Selection and arrangements are made available to you in our office or the comfort of your home. We do not maintain a large inventory of caskets on the premise. Instead, our selection center is equipped with model displays thereby keeping our inventory costs extremely low. Yet, since we receive 7 day a week delivery service, availability is never a problem. Finally, due to our existing infrastructure we are able to share certain economies such as administrative personnel, printing and document services, centralized embalming facilities and automotive equipment. This pooling of resources allows us to further control our overhead expenditures and pass the additional savings along to you, our valued customers.
