    Default Some Things Aren't So Simple

    Where will you store your mum's body, between death and cremation?
    Who will move the body (and how) to the crematorium?
    Etc.

    In my case, I thought it was hard enough just taking the service.
    Try Radenbrea Studios for hand-made designer jewellery. Especially if you're looking for a great gift for your lady love.
    Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!

    Well I would say just take the deal. A lot of buyers prefer to use agents because there are so many rules and regulations to get through and buying privately there could be issues that are undisclosed to the purchaser by the private vendor.
    Selling is swings and round abouts, that agent may have done months of open homes on another house that did not sell, then the owner takes it off the market. That is a lot of work for nothing, it balances out when they get a double wammy like your house being next door to one they have spent a lot of time marketing.

    I'm guessing that if she dies at home we phone the crematorium and they pick up. That's what the book i read said. obviously i'll be doing some more research when it starts to look necessary....you don't need a funeral director to do all the organising....much like you don't need a real estate agent and don't (in many cases) need a hospital to give birth.

    Remainds me of a story from a few years back. The undertakers in Te Awamutu had to go out to Raglan to pickup a deceased. Sat him in the back seat of the car and picked up a hitch hiker on the way back. Hitch hiker commented on how quiet the chap was.
