Ordering flowers from our site ensures that your order will reach us or the family in a timely manner, and your gesture of support will remain acknowledged in the Book of Memories for future generations. We only work with local florists so we can maintain the sense of urgency and quality of your selections. We thank you for helping to support the family during their time of need, and will fondly remember your kind gesture.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Service Pricing - Muscatine Funeral Home Nichols Life Tribute Funeral and Cremation Services
We are committed to transparency in our business practices. This requires us to be upfront and open about our prices for both services and related products.
And for a business to be truly transparent, the staff needs to follow certain rules or guidelines that keep everyone accountable for their words and actions.
It’s easy to see that if our funeral home leans this way yesterday and that way tomorrow when it comes to openness, communication and accountability, families would quickly lose their trust in us.
And trust is everything.
After all, the services we provide are unique, and the people we serve are in a very vulnerable position. We consider trust to be an essential part of the relationship we develop with the families we serve.
When It's a Question of Money
For families faced with the death of someone dear to them, it quickly becomes clear that funerals rank among the most expensive purchases they may ever make. A traditional funeral, including a casket and vault, can well exceed $7,000, although grave preparation and "extras" like flowers, obituary notices, reception catering or limousines can add thousands of dollars to the bottom line. Many funerals run well over $10,000. And then, there is the cost of a burial plot, and marker. The final costs can be overwhelming for the average family. At Nichols Life Tribute Services, we pride ourselves in controlling overhead expenses and having the lowest merchandise mark-up in the region. We pass those savings on to you through fair prices, quality service and lower price products.
Yet even if you're the kind of person who feels very comfortable price-shopping for a new car or home appliance, you're likely to feel very uncomfortable comparing prices or negotiating over the details and cost of a funeral, whether it’s a pre-need or immediate need situation.
No Hidden Fees
When we quote you a price for our services and products, that's the price you pay. There won't be any hidden fees later. You have our guarantee. Please note that cash advance items such as cemetery fees and flowers are third-party expenses that we do not control and therefore are not included. However, we will be glad to provide you with a good-faith estimate of these third party items/charges.
