The funeral home has to accept the casket by law. The FTC has created the funeral rule for this purpose, all funeral homes have to accept caskets from outside dealers.
Why is the casket so much cheaper from Memorials.com? Back
The main reason is you are cutting out the middle person and purchasing the casket directly from a supplier.
How is the quality of the casket compared to a funeral home? Back
The quality is the same as in a funeral home. The same caskets are sold to funeral homes direct.
Can I send the casket to a different country? Back
Yes, you can. We do not ship them out of the country but we can send them to a freight carrier; who would export the casket out of the country for you (we have done this before, it works well).
Can I change the inside lining or color of the casket? Back
We are sorry, but the caskets are ready to ship and can not be changed on the inside.
How long does it take for regular ground delivery? Back
Regular Ground delivery comes with UPS or FedEx and takes about 3-6 business days. Unfortunately, a precise delivery day or time cannot be guaranteed for this service.
Can I send the casket with 2nd day or overnight delivery? Back
Yes, you can. There is an extra fee to express delivery, which you can select directly when ordering and the order needs to be received by 12.00PM Central Standard Time.
Should I let the funeral home know there is a casket coming? Back
Yes, we recommend you contacting the funeral home once you have ordered the casket and informing them that you have a casket shipped directly to them.
Can I ship the casket before the person has deceased? Back
Yes, you can. The funeral home does not have to accept the casket though because they do not have to store the casket for you. Please contact us before sending the casket if it is a pre-need casket.
Can I ship the casket to my house? Back
Yes, you can.
Is the wood casket from hardwood? Back
Yes, the wood caskets are from poplar hard wood.
