Ultimate Service Provider
Wilbert Funeral Service in Chicago (corporate HQ) has awarded Yates Wilbert Burial Vault with "Ultimate Service Provider" every year 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. Yates Wilbert Burial Vault surpassed the 75 points needed to obtain Ultimate Service Provider. Although we are proud of this accomplishment internally, it pleases us most that local families are the recipients of this service.
Wilbert offers the Wilbert Way (WW) burial set up. It consists of an above ground seal and a lowering device, also known as The Wilbert Way Lowering Device.
Grass & Chairs
As part of the standard set up, grass and chairs are available to families at the burial site. 16 folding chairs will typically cover a gravesite area and will be neatly arranged under the tent (if ordered). Yates Wilbert Burial Vault manages the delivery, setup, and removal of the grass and chairs.
A tent is set by Yates Wilbert Burial Vault at the gravesite for funeral services as an additional service. The tent covers the burial area and provides a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral.
Nameplates give burial vaults a personalized touch. They are a standard feature of Continental vaults and above. For an extra charge, nameplates can be added to the Monticello burial vaults. The nameplate includes the name of the deceased and the birth and death dates.
Yates Wilbert Burial Vault provides cremation set ups for urns and urn vaults. We also offer cremation services. Please contact us for more information.
Yates Wilbert Burial Vault provides disinterment services. Wilbert is fully equipped with "track hoe" tractors which significantly reduce the amount of time needed to prepare a grave. 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 franchises and dealers. Yates Wilbert Burial Vault uses the vault transfer service when a burial request has been made outside of the franchise territory. The location of the cemetery is needed to determine the appropriate Wilbert franchise or dealer. Since the services offered by each Wilbert franchise vary, the franchises work together on a per burial basis to determine the services, such as tents, grass, chairs, and grave digging, that each franchise will provide for the burial. Vaults to be transferred out of our service area are subject to different prices. Please contact us for details.
