Why Should I Plan Ahead

Experiencing the loss of a family member or close friend is one of the most difficult and stressful times in our lives. Along with all of the emotions of grief and the loss comes planning the funeral service. In the course of arranging these services, nearly 200 questions are asked by the funeral director and must be answered by the family. This can be a hard accomplishment for family members because they are not in their normal circumstance. Through preplanning your funeral. a person can make all of the decisions about the funeral ahead of time with a clearer mind.

Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment?

The simple answer is no. You can pre-plan by simply recording your wishes and leaving it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.

When you choose to pre-fund your final arrangements, your money is put in a state-approved trust account or top-rated insurance company until required.

By pre-planning with us, you’re assured that your final wishes are known. This relieves your family of the burden of making difficult decisions, under emotional duress. Through pre-funding your plan, expenses will be covered when you need them to be. That's guaranteed.

Our plans offer a variety of payment options to fit most everyone. Choose the payment option that's right for you.


Can I Transfer a Pre-arranged or a Pre-funded Agreement From Another Funeral Home?

The simple answer is yes. One of the biggest misconceptions in pre-arranging your funeral is that you must stay with a funeral home if you have pre-arranged or have pre-funded your funeral. According to Minnesota law, a funeral home can not touch one penny of the funds you have set aside until your death. Why? This protects your rights as a consumer!

If a funeral home has changed ownership or simply lost the quality of service that your family deserves, you may easily transfer your arrangements. Simply call our staff at Hartquist Funeral and Cremation Services and we will welcome the opportunity to serve you.
