Frequently Asked Questions
I have funeral insurance – can I use that? Should I keep paying it? What are my options?

If you’re currently paying funeral insurance, you have three options. The first is to cancel your funeral insurance payments, and convert to a prepaid funeral plan. This means you forfeit your potential payout, but this is likely the cheapest option if you’re planning on not requiring our service for three years or more. The second option is to continue paying your funeral insurance premiums, and also take out a prepaid plan. As funeral insurance simply pays out a lump sum of cash, this could be used by your family for anything (as a gift for a car, holiday, education etc) if you’ve also prepaid your funeral. The final option is to keep paying funeral insurance, and simply use that payout to arrange a Bare cremation when the time comes. This is what we recommend if you’re expecting to require our service in the next three years.

Do you guarantee the service if I haven’t finished my installments prior to passing?

If you happen to pass away prior to your installment plan being finished, we will absolutely still commence the service and undertake collection and the paperwork process. We will coordinate with your next of kin or family members to pay the balance due, at the price you locked in at the time you started the installment payments.

Can I pay in instalments other than monthly?

We currently offer monthly or fortnightly payment options. We are however going to start additional plans to ensure all Australians have access to an affordable funeral service. If you are unable to afford our monthly plans, but would still like a prepaid funeral, please give us a call on 1800 531 936 to discuss your options. We are here to help.

How are you so affordable?

We have a different business model to traditional funeral homes. By offering one simple package that can be arranged online or over the phone, we don’t have the same high overheads. We don’t require expensive physical locations to provide a high-quality service. We have used technology to automate many manual processes, which allows us to pass on those savings to our customers.

Should I pay now or wait to pay later?

The decision to purchase your prepaid funeral now or later completely depends on your current financial circumstances. The major benefit of prepaying with Bare Cremation is that you lock in today’s price – which is typically the lowest in the market. Paying now avoids any increase in prices, which can be substantial over many years. It also allows for peace of mind that you wont pass the stress and burden onto your family when the time comes. Paying later allows you to save money in the meantime, however you do run the risk that prices will increase.

Why do states or regions vary in price?

We aim to be the cheapest provider in every region we operate. The bulk of our costs are from the cremation fee and the transportation. In some states (such as Tasmania) the cremation fee is significantly higher than others. Our prices reflect the the local input prices of our services. We’re constantly working to get our prices as low as possible in all locations.

Your pricing page quoting a price saying “starting at” – why is my quote different?

The prices we have on our pricing page are typically for major cities and their surrounds. The slightly higher price for regional areas is primarily due to the increased transportation costs. Even with slightly increased prices, we are typically up to 50% cheaper than the local regional funeral home, which we are very proud of.

Why is the amount put in trust with Australian Friendly Society lower than the price I paid?

When you purchase a prepaid funeral, we are must legally remit GST immediately. That means we take out the GST component of the amount paid and send it to the Australian Tax Office. We also take our setup fee to pay for the administration and setup of your Prepaid Bond in a regulated fund with the Australian Friendly Society. All of these costs are clearly outlined on your prepaid funeral contract. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to call or email us anytime. We pride ourselves on complete transparency.

Are there any hidden fees in your price?

Our prices are fully inclusive, with no hidden fees. A major reason Bare Cremation was started was to offer an affordable and completely transparent funeral service. We are completely open about our pricing, which differentiates us from the traditional funeral industry.

Can I have an itemised breakdown of the services you offer?

Yes. Your funeral contract has each specific line item, with each of it’s costs. You can request this anytime, or create your own via bare.com.au/get-started/

I have my contract – how do I let my next of kin know?

It’s important to ensure that your next of kin or executor know your wishes. That will make the process seamless at the time of your passing. If you are in an aged care facility or hospital, please don’t hesitate to let them know that you have a prepaid contract with Bare Cremation and provide our phone number. They will then be able to contact us immediately when the time comes.

What legal documents will I receive?

As part of a pre-paid funeral arrangement, you will receive a funeral contract, which lists all the prearranged services agreed upon. You will also receive a copy of your Australian Friendly Society Disclosure Document outlining how your money is kept safe.

Can I receive a hard copy of my funeral contract and disclosure document?

Yes. On completion of your prepaid arrangement, we’ll mail you a hard copy of your arrangement, as well as some instructions you might wish to leave with your family or lawyer. Your documents are also securely stored online and can be shared with family, executors, lawyers and accountants anytime. Your account details and documents can be found at bare.com.au/my-account/

What if I change my mind?

You have a 30 day cooling off period to consider your contract and change your mind if you wish. You may cancel your contract within the 30 day period by notifying Bare Cremation in writing. Your contract is cancelled and you will receive a full refund. It is important that you are aware that your Bond cannot be withdrawn prior to death, except during the cooling-off period.

What if I die away from home?

If you are travelling within Australia when death occurs, your family will need to contact us immediately, so that we can make the necessary arrangements to assist with your safe transfer. Some additional costs for transport may be required.

What if you go out of business?

The investment value of your prepaid contract is invested in a regulated Fund with the Australian Friendly Society. As a member of the Fund the investment value is held in your name and we can only access the funds on your passing as part of the pre-paid contract. In the very unlikely event that we are not in business when you pass away the investment value at that time would either be paid to your Estate or paid to another Funeral Director at the direction of your Executor to contribute to your funeral expenses.
