To many people the idea of purchasing products from an unseen Internet company is still a foreign concept. However, the ever increasing amount of business conducted on the world-wide- web has shown it to be a valuable tool for consumers who are looking to save both time and money. Everything from groceries to automobiles and any other type of good you can imagine or desire to purchase can most likely be found for sale online and at amazing prices all from the convenience of your home, and cemetery monuments are no different. Buying headstones online is a great way to save money in your time of need.
We at Headstones USA know that cemeteries and even local retail monument dealers quote prices hundreds or even thousands of dollars higher than those we are able to offer. We shop around and compare not only quality, but prices of all our competitors to make sure that we are providing you with the same high quality products, but at prices you can afford. In addition to our own research locally, we have customers who consistently report that our prices are dramatically less expensive than the prices they encounter when they price equivalent products at their local cemetery or retailer. When asked how we are able to provide such a high quality product for such an economic price, we simply say: First, we purchase direct from the quarries bypassing the middle man so that we can pass those savings on to you. Second, we customize and engrave the products ourselves, removing yet another middle man. And finally, we sell online and remove the overhead cost of a showroom and pass all of these savings on to you. The products you purchase from Headstones USA are the very same products available to you through your cemetery or local monument dealer, but at a fraction of the price.
In years past, cemeteries and funeral homes have held a monopoly on monument sales and required customers to purchase everything from the casket to the headstone from them. The funeral home or cemetery would sell everything including the service itself as a package and customers would never know what exorbitant prices they were actually paying for each item or service. However, the United States Federal Trade Commission, has required that cemeteries offer customers an itemized bill for all products and services, and cemeteries must also allow customers to buy their accessories elsewhere – such as from online dealers. These rules were intended to improve competition and thus lower prices of the accessories. But the intended effect seems still not to have taken full hold. While prices are generally much lower when customers buy headstones online, many cemeteries still hold to their traditional practices of charging a premium price for accessories in exchange for “one-stop shopping” convenience for customers. We are here to offer and provide consumers with a new and affordable option. Shopping online for a memorial is arguably the most predictable and most effective way to shop on a budget.
While shopping online you can feel free to take your time making a selection without any of the pressure a salesman can make you feel, you can take your time to select the product that fits your specific needs and within your budget with no surprises. At Headstones USA we make sure that you are aware of exactly how much you will be paying for the memorial you select before you make a final decision and even provide you with a layout or scale size proof of your monument style with your specific engraving information so that you know what your monument will look like before you buy. So, as you can see purchasing a memorial online is not only more convenient more affordable, and more predicable way to shop it is also a great way to be able to customize a marker or tombstone to memorialize your loved one exactly how you want them to be remembered. We provide a wide variety of ways to customize a monument including laser etching, solid granite vases or urns, ceramic photos, custom fonts, and over 2000 different engravable designs.
Frequently when you shop at a store front, you are forced to simply make do with whatever options or specifications they offer. In order to find a monument that fits your needs you may have to drive from shop to shop or even be forced to drive long distances and still not be able to customize a stone exactly how you want it. By taking the initiative to research and find an Internet headstone dealer you will not only be saving yourself a lot of money; you are also helping to drive prices down for everyone.
