EWN reported that analysts warned motorists to expect a massive petrol price increase and that there is little that government can do to cushion society further as the increase is driven by factors outside of its control. The increase of over R2.00 per liter for unleaded petrol effects the cost of living, travel and business. Two Mountains is dedicated to putting the consumer first by securing the price of repatriation within South Africa for the duration of this financial year.
“Repatriation costs can become expensive for long distances. Taking someone from one corner of the country to another was over R3 000,00 in 2021 from Johannesburg to KZN depending on the kilometers.” Says Joseph Makhafola – Head of Two Mountains Repatriation Services. In the funeral industry repatriating a loved one is charged as a round trip with Two Mountains regularly making trips of over 1000km. Mr Makhafola continues to say that “We [Two Mountains] keep our prices standard throughout the financial year even though the cost of fuel has increase rapidly in the last few months so it becomes a big saving for a policy holder in the event that they need this service.” – this is in reference to the 600km free repatriation benefit the company has included in all Two Mountains underwritten policies.
With a fleet of over 300 vehicles working around the clock to deliver quality services and peace of mind to families around the country, Ansie Meyer – Head of Two Mountains Burial Services says: “We put the family first, that’s our ethos at the company. We work continuously throughout the year to ensure that our customers get a quality funeral service at an affordable price so if a client wants a Luxury vehicle the quoted price in March is still the quoted price today. The petrol increase may affect our costs but will not affect our customers.”
