Considerations When Choosing a Repatriation Company

Losing a family member or a loved one is one of the most devastating things that can happen to anyone. It is harder if the deceased is in another country, which is needed to be transported to where his families and friends are living. The good thing is that there are several repatriation companies where you can avail service for the repatriation of a deceased body. If you are contemplating which company you should choose, below are some of the things that you need to consider.

Customer service

The company that you should choose must give high quality service to their customers. They must be reliable, responsible, and responsive. Keep in mind that death can happen anytime, which is why it is better for you to avail the service from a company that is available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. In this way, you can immediately contact them if you need their service and they can inform you about the progress of the process of repatriation of the deceased. The staff of the company must also know how to talk to you properly and do their best when they are doing the service.


The pricing or repatriation costs from the companies are different depending on several factors. Some companies offer the service for cheaper rates because they already have contacts with other agencies or companies that will be part of the repatriation process. If the company only gives you just the total amount that you needed to pay, you can always request for the copy of list of expenses before you settle it. It is your right to know where your money will be spent on and if their pricing is reasonable. Repatriation costs can be very expensive, which is why you need to make sure that there are no hidden charges or any suspicious expenses that you will need to pay for.


Before choosing which company you will avail the service, it is important to read reviews of a certain company. Find out if their past clients encountered any problems while availing the service or if they are satisfied with the quality of service given to them by the company. Grieving for the loss of someone is already stressful, which is why you need to make sure that the repatriation company you will choose wouldn’t add to your stress and problems. Remember that you will avail the service to make the whole process easier and not even harder for you as a family member of the deceased.


Before availing a service from the company, it is important that you need to know what the inclusions of the service are. Will they only transport the deceased body from another country to your country? Will they also be the one in charge about the documentation? It is necessary for you to know what you will be paying for and if there are other things you will need to do for the repatriation process. Make sure that everything is clear to you and you understand the inclusions carefully so you wouldn’t encounter any problems throughout the process.
