It is your right and our desire, that you have a complete understanding of the costs of the services we provide.
We know that some expense is necessary to provide the quality service, for which we are known, and do everything in our ability to keep the cost of services to a minimum with pride in the personal care, commitment and direction we provide to our families. When you call Fergerson's - we want you to reach a Fergerson.
The biggest factor is the time element. Just as a police or fire department, we must be available 24/7/365. Unlike a police or fire department, ours is a 168-hour work week. National studies have shown that a single funeral requires 92 staff-hours to properly conduct.
No two funerals are exactly alike. Traditions, customs, personal feeling, financial ability and a multitude of other influences affect each funeral. Our services must and do conform to each individual family's wishes and their personal and religious needs.
