May 11, 2012

http://www.basicfunerals.com is the first full-service funeral company in the U.S. to allow families to handle all their funeral arrangements online.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 11, 2012

Chicago families are now able to handle funeral arrangements for their loved ones from the privacy and comfort of their homes, without the added cost or high pressure of dealing with traditional funeral parlors — and at half the price.

Basic Funerals and Cremation Choices (http://www.basicfunerals.com), is the first licensed, full-service Internet funeral company in the U.S. It is located in Des Plaines, IL and is operated by Chicago native Dominic Mazzone, and Eric Vandermeersch, a licensed funeral director with 15 years experience.

“Basicfunerals.com offers the same, exact services you would get from a traditional funeral parlor, at about half the price,” Basic Funerals CEO Mazzone said. “Families love the fact that they can pick and choose their funeral arrangements, instead of having to purchase an expensive package they don’t need.” Low overhead reduces expenses, allowing Basic Funerals to pass the savings onto families when they need it the most.

The company employs licensed funeral directors and is equipped to handle all the necessary arrangements, including transfer from the place of death, to required documentation forms and proof of death certificates.

“We are there for you, from start to finish,” Mazzone said, adding that one of http://www.basicfunerals.com’s most popular features is the Real-Time Chat option that allows users to chat with a licensed, professional funeral director from the privacy and comfort of home, anytime day or night.

In addition, Hispanic families can browse the site entirely in Spanish, and talk with a Spanish-speaking funeral director.
