Shield Funeral Plans is an Independent Funeral Planning company. We are free to compare funeral plans, prices and packages across the whole market to find the very best deal available for our clients.
Most funeral plans are very similar, with just a few differences between the package levels. For example, things such as how many limousines to accompany the hearse, or what standard of coffin is required, are the main differences when doing a funeral plans comparison.
In terms of quality, most funeral plans compare very favourably, with a very high standard of product across the industry. There is a simple reason for this, and that’s because the funeral plans are accepted by local funeral directors who deliver a very high standard of service.
If you would like to compare funeral plans yourself then look at the standard of coffin, how many limousines are included and most importantly, does it cover 3rd party fees (disbursements) such as doctors’ and ministers’ fees. As long as these items are all the same then you can be sure that the only difference is price.GET A QUOTE
Our funeral plans comparison website is designed to help you find the very best deal, and deliver the very best value for money. Remember, this is a bond that is accepted by your local funeral home, so don’t pay extra expecting better quality. The only difference is what’s included in the package.
In terms of a funeral insurance comparison, there is no comparison. A funeral plan will cover 100% of the funeral costs whereas funeral insurance most often doesn’t cover the full amount. Also, the standing order paying the insurance is often the first thing that is cancelled and then the insurance company refuse to pay out, so beware of funeral insurance plans.
Most companies over 12 and 24 month interest free options, and many go up to 120 months with a low interest rate, so they can be as affordable as funeral insurance. Shield do not offer funeral insurance as it is something we don’t feel offers good value for money.
