As of 27th January 2017, Safe Hands Funeral Plans offer 6 different Funeral Plans with the three original, ‘All Inclusive and Fully Guaranteed’ core plans remaining at the same cost until January 2018, although, it is not confirmed that they will increase even at this time due to the increased competitiveness of the industry as a whole.
Whilst Safe Hands offer a Basic Plan (Pearl Plan) (hearse only), an Intermediate Plan (Sapphire Plan)(1 Limousine) and a Superior Plan (Ruby Plan) (2 limousines plus other additions), they also offer 3 other alternatives which give clients more choice and freedom.
The additional plans in the range are the Topaz Plan which allows clients to pay the minimal amount of £2,275 to guarantee the Funeral Directors costs but excludes any third party charges, as these would need to be paid by the family or loved ones at the time of passing.
Newly added in January 2017 is the ‘Your Simplest’ Plan which is designed to provide a full funeral service, leaving no further charges for family or loved ones to pay, but also to help save costs. The caveat in this plan is that it only covers cremation and this must take place for 10am Monday – Friday.
The Direct Cremation Plan is a very simple plan which only suits certain circumstances, covering only the cost of the cremation and no service either. This plan is not featured or for sale on the Funeral Planning Solutions website.
To secure one of the below plans a £250 deposit is required. You can then select a number of different payment options. These include interest FREE options over 12 or 24 months, and 36, 60 & 120 months options that are subject to an ‘Instalment Handling Charge’ of 4% annually.
Please note that all monthly payments below have been calculated including the exclusive £200 discount from Funeral Planning Solutions and with the £250 deposit removed.
