Funeral Service Financing
A funeral home's number one goal is ensuring families receive the best possible service for their loved one, as well as all the services they desire. United Consumer Financial Services' top priority is helping funeral homes grow their business by providing funeral service financing options to families for their service.
It happens every day; a grieving family selects more options for their funeral than their budget allows. With financing - or low monthly payments for a set period of time - families can achieve their desired memorial service.
If you're searching for a company that offers financing services and payment plans for your funeral customers, we can help.
