Sun-Life’s prior consultation
[See everything in pratical] [Having directly talk] The reason why you have to confirm everything with your own eyes Recently, you can buy everything you need just by using the convenience of internet. Even funeral company can be selected also by the internet. [Every funerals are the same. Since I can’t see the differences between each funeral, the one with cheaper price would be good enough], there are many people who have those kinds of thinking way, but this is a big misunderstanding. For example, all the funeral companies which have published information on the internet, in fact the processing of the funeral will usually be entrusted to some local funeral companies, even if the consultation you received through the phone was so polite and trustable, quality of the real funeral will depend on the company who process it, which means there are many cases when service quality is not guaranteed. This is one-lifetime ceremony of your precious one.
Because you are not familiar with this kind of service, Sun-Life will show you how the real funeral is processed, we recommend that you should confirm what kind of service will be provided and our staff’s quality in reality with your own eyes.
