What kind of caskets are available online?
When you buy casket online, it opens up your options immensely. It’s also important to remember that online doesn’t mean you have to buy one of these options sight unseen; you can still make an appointment with your local funeral home or crematory and pick out one in person.
How do I find the right casket?
When buying caskets online, you’ll find that there are hundreds of options to consider. That’s why it’s important to do your research and review all of your options in order to find one that matches your budget and style preferences. In addition, you should consider each casket model’s material type, how much it weighs, its interior cushioning and whether or not it comes with burial accessories such as gloves, liners or screws.
Will buying a casket online save me money?
Buying a casket online can save you hundreds of dollars because caskets that are bought online tend to be cheaper than those bought at funeral homes or mortuaries. Because there’s more flexibility in price when buying direct, you might be able to take advantage of deals like free shipping and/or VIP pricing.
What does shipping costs?
Shipping is free when you buy a casket online. Standard shipping times are generally 4-7 business days, but they can take up to 10 days depending on which state you live in. If you need it delivered faster than standard shipping, there may be an additional charge. If your loved one passed away due to unusual circumstances or was under 16 years old, there will likely be an additional charge as well; contact us for details if needed.
Can I get free shipping?
This is a common question that you might have. It’s very likely that you’ll get free shipping when you buy your casket online. Keep in mind, shipping can take anywhere from 2-4 days to get delivered to your home, depending on where you live. If you live out of state or even out of country, then it can take up to two weeks for your delivery service to deliver it to your home or funeral home.
How long will it take to ship my casket?
While we make every effort to ensure that your product arrives in a timely manner, occasionally there are delays that are out of our control. Every item is custom-made after you place your order and may require up to 30 days for production before shipping. There may also be additional lead time required as each item is shipped from its respective factory. If you have not received your shipment within 90 days from when it was placed, please contact us at [email protected] so we can check on its status for you.
Do you have in-store locations too?
Yes, all of our caskets are manufactured in-house, but if you need to save on shipping costs and pick it up from us directly, we can do that for you. We’re not responsible for any damage incurred in transit though; just let us know when you come to claim your purchase.
