We can provide local transportation within Salem at no cost. But for any transportation outside of Salem, we charge a reasonable rate to cover gas and employee expenses. For example, a body sent to us will generally incur a fee for the transporation from the Portland Airport down to Salem.
We can provide free local advocacy in Salem. Standby services in Salem would be on a fee-for-service basis.
We might be able to offer standby services from about Seattle down to San Francisco. It could quickly get expensive. We're currently not prepared to fly for any remote standby.
For remote cases from other states, a funeral director would be performing the transportation. See Instructions for Funeral Director or Pathologist. The funeral director may need to charge as much as $6000 for their services. These extra charges should be included in your funding strategy.
