Crane Funerals Guarantees

We focus on you, not on the “bottom line”. A large Corporation faces pressure from Corporate Headquarters – and shareholders – to increase profits wherever possible. That is who they answer to, but we answer to you. We aim to do well by always serving you well. To that end we are glad to offer two guarantees to back our commitment to serve you now, and whenever you may need us in the future.

100% Service Satisfaction Guarantee.

Crane Funerals is devoted to exceptional service before, during, and after the Funeral Service, or Celebration Ceremony. As such we guarantee that if you’re not 100% satisfied with any aspect of our caring service, we will make every effort to correct the situation immediately, after you raise your concerns. We will work closely with you to ensure that your requirements are met. If we cannot correct things to your satisfaction, you will be refunded the charge for that particular service item. We hope that this guarantee provides you with some added peace of mind in this difficult time.

No Hidden Fee Guarantee.

Crane Funerals understands that Funeral and Cremation costs in Melbourne can be quite confusing. Some may take advantage of your state of sadness / distress. You may see online – or be quoted over the phone – what seems to be a low price, only to find out there are hidden fees after you make the decision to use a particular Company.

Our No Hidden Fee Guarantee eliminates the guess work and covers:

  • Individual service fees.
  • Merchandise (coffins, urns etc).
  • Cremation / Cemetery fees (following confirmation from crematorium / cemetery).
  • Any cash advance items.
  • Taxes / G.S.T.
  • Third party disbursement fees (following confirmation from the service provider).

We guarantee that the price you see on our site – or that we give you in a written quote – will be the price that you will pay. We are honoured when you choose our Services, and we will do all we can to repay the faith you show in us.

Terms and Conditions apply.
