It’s sad, but there are those out there who attempt to take advantage of those who are going through some of the worst times in their life. Facing death is never going to be easy, but it’s even harder if you run across a poor Chicago, IL cremation provider. How can you spot them If you find them? How do you know the one you choose is the right option for you? Here are some red flags to help you know for sure you are dealing with a disreputable cremation provider, so you can back off and find a new provider right away.
Red Flag 1: Guilt Trips Or Pushy Sales Tactics
You know your loved one best, and no one should try to guilt you into anything while you are deciding on their final services. You don’t have to buy an urn that’s way above your budget and no one should try to make you feel guilty about your choices. If the cremation provider is telling you things like your loved one deserves the best and advises you of expensive choices, you should find another provider to help with the process.
Red Flag 2: Emotional Manipulation
Going through the death in your family is hard enough and you’re going to have plenty of emotions. If a cremation provider makes any comments that seem to be playing on your emotions or tugging you in a certain direction because of the way you feel right now, you need another provider. You need to decide based on what your loved one would have wanted and what your family wants now, not what your emotions might lead you toward because of manipulation.
Red Flag 3: Religious Leadings
Any cremation provider should be there to support you in whatever way you need the support. They should be a neutral party that shouldn’t give you religious advice or try to lead you in any one way or another. If you want religious considerations, there should be a spiritual leader for that. The cremation provider just helps you by following your directions.
