Ultimate Service Provider
Arnold Wilbert Corporation has achieved Ultimate Service Provider, awarded by Wilbert Funeral Service in Chicago (corporate HQ), since 2001. There are four service levels: Minimum Service, Basic Service, Premium Service, and Ultimate Service Provider. To be classified as an Ultimate Service Provider, one must receive at least 75 points out of 88 points; a higher score is attainable when bonus points are earned for exceptional achievements. Points are collected by category, including tents, chairs, greens, Wilbert Way, lowering device, vaults, employees, and trucks and delivery. Arnold Wilbert surpassed the 75 points needed to obtain Ultimate Service Provider.
Arnold Wilbert offers two types of burial set ups, Wilbert Way (WW) and Graveside set up. The Wilbert Way set up consists of an above ground seal and a lowering device and graveside grass, also known as The Wilbert Way Lowering Device. The difference in the two set ups is in the placement of the vault and the vault cover during the funeral service. The Graveside setup includes graveside grass, casket lowering device, and a standard of 16 chairs.
A 15x15 tent is available to be set up by our staff at the gravesite for funeral services. The tents cover the burial area and provide a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral.
Nameplates give burial vaults a personalized touch. They are a standard feature of our Continental burial vaults and above. Nameplate includes the name of the deceased and the birth and death dates.
Grave Digging & Disinterment
Arnold Wilbert provides grave digging & disinterment services. Arnold Wilbert is fully equipped with "track hoe" tractors which significantly reduce the amount of time needed to prepare a grave. The grave digging service includes the opening and closing of the grave. Arnold Wilbert also provides a hand-dug grave service at a premium. If it becomes necessary to move a vault from one location to another, Wilbert can assist with these services. We handle everything from locating the vault to relocating the vault to a new location.
Vault Transfer is a service available between Wilbert licensees and dealers. Wilbert Burial Vault uses the vault transfer service when a burial request has been made outside of the licensee territory. The location of the cemetery is needed to determine the appropriate Wilbert licensee or dealer. Since the services offered by each Wilbert licensee vary, the franchises work together on a per burial basis to determine the services, such as tents, grass, chairs, and grave digging that each licensee will provide for the burial.
Arnold Wilbert is able to provide lawn crypts, bulk burial vaults, and concrete outer burial containers for cemetery use. Please contact us for further information.
