I am a operating funeral director in the UK. I have secured the agency / distribution for a coffin lowering device for UK and Ireland, which is manufactured in America. This product is only manufactured by one company in the world ie world wide patent ,and has been in use since 1892. There are currently no devices in UK or Ireland. With Health and Safety Manual Handling Regulations being enforced more and more it is only a matter of time before this equipment will be required in cemeteries all over the country therfore minimising the risk to cemetery staff, funeral personel and members of the public whilst lowering coffins into the ground at funerals. Contributing factors such as rising obesity levels within the population as well as people opting for solid wood coffins and caskies which can weigh in at 9 stone empty add greatly to the risk of injury whilst lowering coffins into graves. At present there are a number of cases about to go to the High Court which involve cemetery staff recieving serious back injury whilst carrying out the above operation. When these cases conclude and compensation is awarded these pieces of equipment will be seriously sought after. I believe the time is right to adress the market and be ahead of the game. I am currently in negociations with insurance underwriters who provide cover for 80% of the Funeral Directors in UK and Ireland with a view to them offering a reduced rate to customers who use this device. Also the National Assiciation of Funeral Directors are very impressed with this although they can not be seen to endorse any individual company.
This all said my plan of action is as follows. I have made an agreement with a current very well established and respected Funeral Furnishing Company to climb on their back as it were, whereby they will furnish me with an introductory letter introducing and recomending my company and my products to their top customers. This letter I intend to put along with my own one page powerfull sales letter (written by you) and send it out to these ccustomers. This sales letter will direct the potential customer to my web site which is also a powerfull sales letter (web page approx 10 pages written by you). From this site I will offer special introductory prices, bonus offers , money back guarantee, and various payment methods. I have lots of information, pictures and videos to include with the website sales letter if required. I look forward to your prompt reply.
