Payment after death

A New York funeral director is offering a free funeral to a builder who will undertake a construction job at his Manhattan home in exchange.

Funeral director, Peter Dohanich wrote on an online classified advert service: “It may sound like a laughable barter transaction, but consider the average cost of paying for a funeral. Ask someone that recently had a funeral what they paid!”

Dohanich said he is looking for a builder or contractor to do some remodelling for a new patio but did not have the money on hand for the project.

“Someone told me, if you’re looking for services, look on barter,” he said.
