When you are trying to organize final services for a loved one, you want everything to go just right. You enlist the help of one of the funeral homes in Deland, FL. With any luck, everything goes well and you choose a good provider who will do everything according to your plans at a fair price. But if you were too emotional to look into the company very far, you can’t be sure what the results will be like. If things aren’t working out how you’d hoped, here are a few things you can do:
Talk To The Owner/Manager
Unless it’s a very small funeral home, chances are you are working with a representative who has a ‘boss’ or someone who hired him or her. If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, it could be that you are working with someone who isn’t running things the way the owner/operator would like to have things done. When you talk to the person in charge of everyone within the funeral home, they may be able to get things straightened out for you.
Take Control And Assert Yourself
If the representative you are working with seems to be doing things without asking you first or charging you for things you didn’t ask to have done, you need to take control of the situation before things get out of hand. Assert yourself, even though it’s hard when you are already emotional, and tell them you aren’t going to be taken advantage of in this situation. Let them know that you see what they are doing and you aren’t putting up with it. Once they recognize that you see what’s happening and want things a certain way, they may bend to your will with ease to make you happy.
Move To A New Company
Depending on how far along you are in the process, this can be hard, but if you aren’t being treated right, it’s important to find a provider that will care for your family member and the plans you have in mind with the utmost care. Moving on to a new funeral home is simply early on in the process. While it’s harder later on, speak to the new provider about your intentions and they can take care of many of the details for you.
