Transfer Services Description
Horan & McConaty is honored to be your choice for shipping and cremation needs in the Denver area, including communities within 40 miles. Contact us at 303-477-1625 and identify yourself as a Selected member eligible for the Selected Special Transfer rate. Pauline Kassner and Brett Henry manage our logistics and scheduling.
Our minimum transfer fee of $1495 (a 25% reduction of our usual price) covers the transfer of the deceased, embalming by a mortuary science school graduate (reflective of our high standards in a state with no requirements for education, training or experience), preparation and filing of the death certificate, procurement of the transfer/permit, transfer to Denver International Airport, combination shipping container, all sales taxes, and overnight mailing of certified copies of the death certificate. Usually, the deceased is sent “collect.”
If your client-family insists on shipping in a casket, we will deem this to be your sale (crediting to you the margin between the published wholesale and the retail price charged and substituting an air tray for a combination unit).
Our trade cremation fee is $1495 (a 34% reduction from our usual price). This covers the usual duties, cremation fee, identification by the survivors, simple alternative container, minimum container for shipping the cremated remains, overnight mailing of the death certificates, and when desired, expedited cremation process. US Postal Service Overnight Express mailing is available at an additional cost.
We ask that you understand our discounted pricing presumes the vital statistics, cremation authorization, flight schedule and other instructions have come from you, the receiver, avoiding any necessity for our staff to arrange with the family. Because you are a member of Selected, we will fax to you a statement and expect payment within 30 days by check. Of course, it is an added expense for certified copies of the death certificate and any newspaper obituary notices.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our services, you will not be charged for that component.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service to you and your client-family.
