You may have thought about reaching out to one of the funeral homes in Dallas, TX to plan your own services in advance, but you may have also put off that planning process because of the things you think and believe about the pre-planning process. Here are some things you might think that isn’t really true. The truth might help you to decide to move forward with confidence. Do you believe any of these things? Here’s reality.
It Will Take More Time Than I Have To Plan The Services
It makes sense that you might not have a lot of time in your life to plan your own final services. You’re busy with work and your family. However, you don’t have to take a lot of time out to plan things. All you have to do is think things through when you have a few spare minutes, before you go to bed, or between work things during the day. Once you know what you want, it’s simple to contact a funeral home and get those plans into place. Plus, time is on your side and there’s no timeline on the planning process. You can get the basics into place and put details together as you think of more things later. You don’t have to spend much time on the plans in order to get them ready.
The Options Are Too Limited
You might think that when you plan services in advance, you only have a select few items from which to choose. That’s not true at all! You can get the list of services from the funeral home and it is the exact same list you would get if you were planning for someone who passed away recently. You have every option available to you no matter when you decide to make the plans.
Pre-Planning Might Cost More
Just like when you get the list of service items and they are the same no matter when you plan, the prices on those services are going to be the same as well. There are no added fees for planning in advance. In fact, you will likely save money. When you plan ahead of time, and even pay for those plans, you pay today’s prices. The prices will rise in the future and you will have already paid, so you will be saving money, which is always nice.
You Might Want Changes Later
If you plan your services now, they’re written in stone and you can’t make any changes, right? Not at all. The plans are only permanently in place when you pass on and your plans take action. Until that time, you can change whatever you want, whenever you want to change it. You might choose cremation and have a traditional memorial set up, but if you think you might want to have a celebration of life instead, you can certainly make that change with funeral homes in Dallas, TX. The professionals at Hughes Family Tribute are here to help with questions or pre-plans any time.
