“ I am giving Mr. Earthman 1 star only because of his dishonesty, I am currently in the preplanning stage of asking funeral questions. Mr. Earthman told me over the phone that he doesn’t charge an assignment fee if I were to use insurance. I was surprised because I knew that most funeral homes charge an assignment fee of 3% to 5% of the total bill. Fast forward several weeks later, as a precaution I called Mr. Earthman and asked him to email me all forms that would need to be signed in the event of a funeral so that I could review them. On the form “Irrevocable Assignment of Insurance Proceeds” at the bottom it clearly states that if the funeral home does not receive funds within 30 days (it could easily take more than a month for a policy to pay off) the Beneficiary has to pay the full Assignment Amount, plus a 10% HANDLING FEE. Imagine my surprise I called Mr. Earthman to ask about this fee and he had the nerve to tell me that he was not aware of that 10% fee. I was stunned, I thought maybe I had made a mistake so I told him since I was not at home that I would check the form again when I got home. After checking the form again I emailed Mr. Earthman the part of the form that shows the 10% fee. I have yet to receive a response from Mr. Earthman despite multiple follow up requests. This is really despicable behavior and I would urge others to go elsewhere because there should be no compromise on honesty and integrity. Mr. Earthman comes across as very knowledgeable and helpful over the phone so be very careful, he would have been an excellent used car salesman. If you must deal with Mr. Earthman make him email you all forms beforehand because he can be a smooth liar over the phone. There is a good reason he went into hiding with me, he knows how outrageous that 10% fee is and more importantly he knows that I caught him red handed in a big fat lie. ”
“ EXTREMELY personalized service, warm and hospitable staff. Of all the funeral homes we called, they were the only ones who talked to us like normal people. And they charge half of what most funeral homes in that part of town charge even though there wasn't any kind of 'economy' feel to the service they provided. ”
