Service Charges

Our Commitment & Guarantee to You

Our goal is not to simply fulfill a family's expectations, but to exceed them in all respects.

Our pledge to you is that we will treat your family as we would our family.

Our service fees are tailored to your specific needs; you will never be asked to pay for services that you do not choose or need. We also guarantee the professional quality of our services.

Our entire staff stands ready to be of service to you and your family.

We are committed to helping you create an individualized tribute to your loved one. Should we fail to meet your expectations or provide value for the fee you are charged, please let us know immediately. We will correct any deficiency. If we are unable to resolve the matter to your complete satisfaction, we will adjust our charges.

Price Guarantee

 We Honor All Plans and Prices

If you have planned at another funeral home or cremation company your plan is transferable and would be honored at either of our locations (Hood River or The Dalles). If their charges are less than ours we will match charges and services.

We have cremation packages that start at $995 and burial packages that start at $1695. We will tailor our charges to fit exactly what you want and nothing that you don't.
We are pleased to provide you with a full disclosure of our Service Charges. To aid consumers, legislation provides that all funeral homes must provide an itemized price list of all of their related Service Charges including casket and merchandise charges. This list must be available at consumers' request without cost or obligation.

There are basically three sections that account for the total funeral expenses: Professional Service Charges, Casket & Merchandise Selections, and Cash Disbursements on applicable items.

Professional Service Charges

We pride ourselves on being one of the most reasonably priced funeral homes in the area, although many expect our charges to be much higher given the level of professionalism, quality of facilities, and ethical standards. Families can learn firsthand the difference in quality, and that there is no need to fall into the trap of traditional loyalty many funeral homes rely on. Today, being good is not good enough. We trust that this service will give you one more reason to consider Anderson's Tribute Center when seeking a funeral home. We are always working to provide you with the highest standard of service and facilities, while offering sensible and affordable solutions.

Casket & Merchandise Selection

This section is specific to the casket that a family selects. All of our caskets and merchandise is priced separately - meaning the price you see for the casket is for the casket itself with no other items included that can often become confusing to families. Some of the other types of merchandise you might find in these section of the funeral account are: Burial Vaults, Cremation Urns, and upgraded Stationary packages. Again, each is itemized based on your selection and a total is itemized under the "Casket & Merchandise Selections."

Cash Disbursements

Cash Disbursements are as they imply. To aid the families we serve, we will cover third party expenses and place them on our account as a convenience until the estate is understood.
Strict legislation ensures that these items are not marked up and only the exact "cost" is included on the funeral account. Typical cash disbursements might include:
  • Newspaper Notices
  • Clergy Honorariums
  • Cemetery Charges
  • Coroner's Cremation Certificates
  • Reception Catering
  • State fees for death certificates
