After you have made first contact with your selected funeral home and obtained an accurate quote for funeral services, the transfer of the deceased from the place of death to the funeral home is set into action. If the death occurs in the home or nursing home, the transfer will take place first due to the urgency of the matter.
If the death occurs at the hospital, facilities exist to care for the deceased for enough time to make funeral arrangements. It is ideal to finalize arrangements with the funeral home before they complete the transfer from the hospital. This way you will be able to carefully consider all of the funeral arrangement costs before making the final decision on which funeral home to choose.
At Basic Funerals, our staff members provide professional deceased transportation from hospitals, nursing homes, and private residences to our funeral home. We understand that it is critical that your loved one is treated with dignity and respect during this process. We ensure an additional staff member is sent to assist with the process in the event your loved one passes away at a private residence or nursing home.
We ensure that all of the required paperwork and documentation is handled and that the deceased is safely transported to our refrigerated funeral home facilities. To learn more about our deceased transportation processes, contact us at Basic Funerals today.
