Let Us Lend a Helping Hand

With You Every Step of Tangihanga

The vision for MOE is to have a one stop hub where whānau can get assistance with the pre-planning, organising, execution and aftercare of tangihanga. .


Find Out More

Grief and financial stress are not a great combination so MOE wants to educate whānau of options available.

The best way to plan a funeral/ tangihanga is to plan in advance.

MOE will assist clients with options that will help alleviate the financial burden at the inevitable time. Whether it’s a savings plan, Funeral or Life Insurance and making sure our client have a Will and has documented their final wishes with whānau engagement so everyone is aware and there are no surprises.


Find Out More

MOE can assist with the organising of a Tangihanga with a database of networks in the catering & venue sectors as well as MOE having their own affordable hire centre for resources required at any whanau event.


Find Out More

MOE is contactable 24/7 to assist whānau throughout the whole tangihanga to take the stress away at the emotional time. MOE will be the main contact between the whānau pani and Lawyer’s, Insurance brokers, Funeral Home, caterers, venue hirer and any other service provider. MOE has their own hire centre so whānau can get affordable resources for any special event.

Having an independent planner at your side will help whānau make better decisions. Decisions not based on grief but based on informed choices to avoid the emotional over spend.


Find Out More

MOE can assist whānau with the closing of accounts, utilities and change of ownership of property if need be or liaise with the lawyer to complete. 

We can put together a check list of jobs required for whānau to complete if this suits their needs better.  

MOE has a database of services available in the self care needed after the loss of a loved one ie: counselling, Miri Miri, pampering with beauty therapist.

Get In Touch

Whanau are simply not ready or prepared to deal with the death of a loved one.

Emotional overspending at the time of death is the main reason most people spend more than they need on a funeral for their loved ones.
