INFORMATION FOR FUNERAL DIRECTORS
THANK YOU for using BagpipesFAO!
In the past we sent you annual prices directly; with detailed prices for families anticipated needs.
However, because "One size fits all" usually doesn't,
We now quote all services on an individual basis in the affordable $200- $350 range; for most funerals and memorials.
Payment in full is due on the day of the service by check to 'BagpipesFAO', or in cash.
PLEASE make any / all checks payable only to “BAGPIPES F.A.O.”
If you require the family to pay us directly, CASH ONLY FROM THE FAMILY will be accepted on the day of the service.
We can provide a receipt to the family for cash payments on request.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS AT THIS TIME.
Unpaid balances will be pursued by a third-party collection agency to the fullest extent allowable by law. Compounded interest of 1% per calendar day accrues on unpaid balances after fourteen (14) calendar days past service date.
1.) Copyright Law applies. A Bagpipes FAO musician will not, under any circumstances, perform copyrighted material without previously obtained expressed written consent of the copyright holder and/or publisher.

2.)Weather, Disaster & Animal Policy: The show must go on, however, we cannot legally send our employees into dangerous and/or harmful situations We endeavor to fullfill the contracted service until roads are impassable, or unsafe conditions prevail in your venue. We offer constant contact as much as possible throughout any severe situation. Since animals react unpredictably to the bagpipe, BagpipesFAO will not work in conjunction with animals. Any and all animals at the venue must be fully restrained during our musician's time onsite.
3.)
