To protect our families, and the visitors to our website, we’ve developed a set of policies that guide our relationships and actions. We invite you to review those that relate to your situation. Should you have questions or concerns, please call us at (925) 875-1343.
We take pride in being able to offer our families fair prices for funeral services. Thus, we require payment for all goods and services prior to the funeral service. This payment can be made in the following ways:
- Cash or check drawn on a local bank
- Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card
- Financing through any financing company
- Insurance policies that are assignable to the funeral home. Insurance policies that are less than 2 years old cannot be accepted as these policies are in a contestability period as required by California Law
Any forwarding of remains requires payment 24 hours prior to shipping.
Sharon wants you to be completely aware, and completely comfortable with your decision to use the services of A Special Touch Funeral & Cremation Service. If there is any part of this policy section you do not understand, please ask.
In order to assist with your arrangements and in compliance with Federal Trade Commission requirements, we have made our General Price List, which includes our Service Packages and Miscellaneous Charges available for your review. The goods and services described are those we can provide our families. You may choose any number of items that you desire. However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mandate that you purchase any items you did not specifically request, we will explain in writing the reason that it was necessary to purchase these items and services.
All persons making funeral arrangements are entitled to copy of the Consumer Guide to Funeral and Cemetery Purchases from the California State Department of Consumer Affairs prior to drafting a contract for funeral services. We will provide one for you in compliance with this regulation. This publication is also available on the Internet at www.dca.ca.gov/cemetery.
Prior to drafting any contract for goods and services, the responsible party or the decedent’s survivor who is handling the funeral arrangements is entitled to receive a copy of any pre-need agreement in the possession of the funeral establishment that has been signed and paid for, in full or in part, by or on behalf of the decedent.
