Minnick Services offers two types of burial set ups, Wilbert Way (WW) and Above Ground with Lowering Device (AL). Both set ups consists of an above ground seal and a lowering device, 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.
Minnick Services provides ten chairs for families who would like a graveside service. The chairs will be neatly arranged under the tent. Minnick Services manages the delivery, setup, and removal of the chairs.
One tent is set by Minnick Services at the gravesite for funeral services. The tents cover the burial area and provide a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral. At the end of the funeral, the tent is removed.
Nameplates give burial vaults a personalized touch. They are a standard feature on all vaults except the grave box. The nameplate includes the name of the deceased and the birth and death dates.
Grave Digging & Disinterment
Minnick Services provides grave digging & disinterment services. 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. 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. Minnick Services 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 licensees 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.
