About Us

What is CITS?

CITS is a professional trade service that takes pride in taking care of the needs of funeral directors in a dignified manner.  While our main focus is on making removals and embalming, we also offer a wide range of back-up services for funeral homes that sometimes need help with the everyday operations.  In an ever changing profession, we realize the need for a service that will be available to provide relief to the funeral directors whom are working hard to provide the best care to the families they serve.

CITS specializes in providing night coverage for funeral directors to give them a more quality life.  Our employees have all worked in the field for many years and have a deep appreciation for the funeral directors whom still work an eight hour day and then have to go back out to take care of the needs of their families during all hours of the night.  By providing a service during these after hours, funeral directors are able to enjoy the life that they and their loved ones deserve.

CITS is also completely insured and uses late model vehicles and equipment.  Our vehicles are unmarked and clean.  CITS will NOT do any work for the public, casket stores, or any other businesses that sell funeral goods and services but do not have funeral directors available to take care of the services when needed.  We only work for established and respected funeral service providers.

CITS does offer individually tailored plans for funeral homes in the larger cities, as well.  If you feel that we could be of any benefit to your firm, please do not hesitate to call and discuss the possibilities.
