There are several reasons why Georgia Cremation Centers is up to 75% less expensive than traditional funeral homes. Here are just a few of the reasons:
First, we are less expensive because of our ownership. While many of the area funeral homes are owned by out-of-state corporations, GCC is family owned. And even those area funeral homes who are not owned by out-of-state corporations use a pricing structure similiar to the corporate owned funeral homes.
Instead of trying to maximize profits for a board of directors concerned with stock prices or following the pricing structure of the corporate funeral homes, we have formulated a fair pricing structure. We use this fair pricing philosophy when determining our charges for our services and for merchandise such as cremation jewelry, urns, and memorialization.
Second, we are less expensive because of our lower overhead. Whether corporate-owned or locally owned, traditional funeral homes typically have large, expensive buildings to maintain. And they typically have a large staff and a large fleet of expensive hearses and limousines. Simply put, they are geared for providing expensive, traditional funerals where Georgia Cremation Centers is specifically designed to meet the needs of families choosing cremation.
We constructed a smaller, state-of-the-art facility which houses our offices, our on-site crematory, and a large family room in which those who wish may hold services - formal or informal. We served over 300 families this past year with our two full time staff, and we provide unique, personalized memorial services in our family room. We don't have expensive hearses or limousines so we discreetly take your loved one into our care using our unmarked minivan.
Third, we are less expensive because our crematory is on premises. Most funeral homes do not even own their own crematory. They must use a third party cremator - a facility that offers cremation services to funeral homes only - and pass that expense on to their families. And corporate-owned funeral homes use a centralized crematory so your loved must be transported to the undisclosed location of their crematory for the cremation to be performed.
And finally, we are less expensive because we built our crematory in the middle of our cemetery at Rolling Hills Memory Gardens. We don't have the additonal overhead of expensive real estate affecting our pricing as do many of the new, large traditional funeral homes. So in addition to the benefit of a lower, fair pricing philosopy, we are surrounded by the beauty and serenity of our cemetery.
