Reviewer : (San Diego, California)

I would like to thank you on behalf of my family for the beautiful casket you provided for my father's funeral. As you know, I was skeptical at first about the whole process of purchasing the casket separately from the funeral arrangements which my family had chosen to make with a local funeral home. Both they and your company provided a coordinated effort that appeared to everyone as a single, seamless arrangement. Many people commented on the beautiful casket, and it was as close to what I had discerned to be my father's wishes as we could have hoped. I am sure he would have been appreciative as well that my mother saved some expense. I wish you good fortune as you help others deliver on their loved ones wishes and avoid unnecessary costs in doing so. Best wishes. Daniel C. Schaefer

Our family has been busy sending thank you notes to many friends and family....and we wanted to make sure that we did not neglect to send a note to you to express our thanks. We were fortunate to have a couple of weeks to plan our Dad's funeral. However, it became evident that it was going to cost us more than his life insurance would cover. We decided to check out the Internet for information and costs of ordering the casket ourselves delivered to California. This led us to your website and the decision to give you a call. As you know, we ordered the Platinum We were so pleased and proud when we were able to see it at the funeral home. ....in our estimation, you went more than an extra mile to help us "negotiate" the cost of a traditional service and walked us through the ordering of the casket and working with the local funeral director....all on a weekend! We know you were hoping we would order a casket from you, but you had no guarantee. When all was said and done....we saved approximately $2,500...and did it honestly and with dignity. (We know Dad would have been so proud!) Thank you for working with us until we knew what we wanted. You both made this special and sad time a lot easier. Sincerely, Paula Heibner Schutz Family

Reviewer Stars Thank You

Reviewer : Terry Conklin (Houston, Texas)

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SERVICE YOU PROVIDED OUR FAMILY. From the very first contact to the final delivery everything was very professional and timely. The funeral home had one available to view which made my choice very easy. Their price was 949 plus $355 for delivery and your price delivered was several hundred dollars less. Due to Unavailability in the local area I was informed that it was flown in to Portland and then delivered to the Funeral home. Total elapsed time from time of order to delivery was 36 hrs. It was not ordered until 10 pm. I have informed a min of 30 people of your service. Thank you once again for your Services you have provided approx 1 ½ months of extra living allowances for my FATHER. Terry Conklin

Sorry this has taken me so long. My Husband died on March12th. I wanted to say how pleased I was with your service and the quality of the "Going Home" Casket. My Friends and Family were all very impressed. I teach Customer Service at the local College, and wanted to express my appreciation for the excellent service I received, during this most difficult time. I will use you as an example to my students re: "How To Do Business." Sincerely, Beverly Martin

Express caskets worked with me to get an affordable casket for my mother. Connie one of the salespeople was so professional and helpful. The casket was delivered as promised and the quality was excellent. Thank you for your company in this difficult ime.

Reviewer Stars Extremely helpful!

Reviewer : Henry C. (New Hyde Park, NY)

We were so impressed with the customer service and the casket we ordered! Purchasing a casket for our Father was not an easy thing to go through, but you guys made the process stress-free. I might add, as well, that the casket was comparable, if not better than, the casket we almost purchased for a whopping 3,600 at the funeral home. We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Reviewer Stars Excellent service and prices

Reviewer : Enrique (Washington, DC)

I had to plan my father's funeral in a short timeframe and decided to order a casket outside of the funeral home. The funeral home's price for a cherry wood casket (with gold trim) was $8000! Of course, they only sold Batesville Caskets. I called several online casket sellers to do some comparison shopping. One seller offered a good price on a cherry wood casket and then tried to add on a $500 one day expedite delivery fee to the order and said that I had to purchase it right away. I also contacted Scott with ExpressCasket and he was very helpful in explaining shipping options of each casket and how to minimize the final cost of the casket. I placed my order for a Cherrywood casket (Regency model) and it arrived at the funeral home on the expected day. There was no detected damage to the casket and it was exactly as shown on the website. The cost was less than 1/4 of what I would have had to spend at the funeral home. The funeral home director was very understanding about prices and accepted the delivery of the casket from another vendor. The company kept me informed about the casket delivery and provided contact phone numbers if any issues arose. A very easy purchase made in a short and time dependent funeral matter. And save from the high markups at the funeral home.

Reviewer Stars Thank you Express Casket

Reviewer : Janice (Milwaukee, WI)

I am very thankful to have come across Express Caskets during the planning of my mother-in-laws untimely death. She was visiting from abroad and died unexpectedly in Wisconsin. The funeral home was charging $2,249.99 for the same casket which was $599 on this website. What a blessing Scott was in helping us with all the arrangements of purchasing and shipping the casket. The casket was delivered to the funeral home in mint condition within 36 hours over a weekend day. I will definitely tell all my family and friends about this website and will use Express Casket again when the need arises. Thank you again and God Bless your business.

Reviewer : Margarita (Nyc, Ny)

My father died on September 5 ,2012 @ 5am . Immediately started to look for a beautiful casket for my father . When I got the news that he's family members wanted to rush to burry him. Becuase of thier schedule conflicts . And I had only 24 hours to get a casket deliver to NYC . Or they will choose the casket the funeral was offering in thier so-call packets deal. I was angry crying . Started arrangements to my other shock to find that the bank thinking that someone stole my credit card froze my account. I was grieving , hurt, angry and now at a limit butget and had 24 hours to produce a beautiful casket to honor my father . I called this web-site and Scott provided me with a great casket at a good price and the envy of the living . Everyone including the director of the funeral home . The hurtz driver and limo driver said the casket was a show - stopper . Made a bad day better knowing my faster rest in peace in a beautiful casket . Thanks express casket .

Reviewer Stars Thanks for Your Help During a Difficult Time

Reviewer : Karla Harris (Bainbridge Island, WA)

I can't say enough good things about how helpful Scott was. My family was in shock and trying to deal with arrangements from a thousand miles away. My brother died in a small town and the caskets being offered were very costly. Being a bargain shopper I joked that there must be a way to get less expensive caskets online...and there you were. You were able to get the casket to a small, remote town in Colorado overnight for $1000 less (including shipping) than the one being offered. Everyone in the family remarked on the quality of the coffin and how great it looked. We also knew my brother would appreciate it happened to be Oakland Raider colors. Your services helped greatly ease the situation we all found ourselves in. Thanks so much for not just providing a great casket at a great price but the quality and caring customer service to go with such a trying time.

The service from Scott, the representative, was professional and sensitive. He called several times to make sure that everything went according to plan and the casket was delivered in a timely manner.

Reviewer Stars Customer service Honest and Dependable

Reviewer : Kathleen Vetal (League City, Texas)

Thank you for making my Mothers day of rest so easy to go through. I was a little concerned about purchasing a casket online without seeing it in person. The sales rep "Scott" was very helpful in easing any concerns. The Casket arrived next day as promised and was simply beautiful.

Reviewer Stars Wonderful people to deal with during a difficult time like this

Reviewer : Gina Thornton (houston, texas)

I do a lot of online shopping but I never imagined purchasing a casket online. I am so happy with my purchase though and would buy from Express Casket again. I bought the Caspian casket to bury my father in. It was very beautiful and heavy. My mother liked it a lot also because the colors reminded her of my Father. Scott was the sweetest person to talk to and was extremely patient with my many questions. Feliciano is very nice also and took pictures and video of the casket when it was delivered to the funeral and sent them to me to approve before they left. I was very impressed with their excellent service. Thanks again!

Reviewer Stars Buying a casket

Reviewer : Karen D. (, )

My hubby picked this company for the casket he wanted. He just passed away and it was easy to honor his wishes. Talking to Scott was easy. He was so easy to talk to. We had a few glitches, but no biggies. I had to go to the funeral home to sign for it. This casket is beautiful!! The picture doesn't do justice!! I am picking this company for when I pass away.

Reviewer Stars thank you

Reviewer : steve pulminiski (syracuse, new york)

I purchased the duchess lilac casket for my daughter's funeral. My daughter, Jennifer, did some research and found this casket. Jennifer decided that she wanted to be laid to rest in the duchess lilac casket. It was a beautiful casket and for thousands less than what a funeral home would. It matched my daughter's purple dress well. Thank you for all your help during this difficult time.

Reviewer Stars Exceptional service

Reviewer : D Wilson (Houston, Texas)

I just wanted to thank you, Scott for your exceptional service. I was hesitant to use an online supplier, but your reviews and BBB A+ rating convinced me. I had talked to you a year earlier when my father was placed on hospice expected to die within days after refusing to go back to the hospital for more painful procedures with very limited benefit. I was able to let he and my mother choose the casket they wanted which was very helpful to her after he died by knowing we had exactly what he wanted. You shipped it quickly and it exceeded our expectations and impressed the funeral director as well. I have no hesitation in recommending or using your services in the future, but hopefully no time soon.

Reviewer Stars Excellent Service and Quality! Thank You!

Reviewer : Carol Clement (Deltona, Florida)

I was under tremendous stress with the untimely passing of my mother and the funeral home was wanting more than my budget could afford. I had never purchased a casket online and was a bit skeptical. After what seemed like endless searching, I was told about Express Casket from an online competitor and found the perfect casket right away and at the right price! Scott was very patient, promised delivery personally by the date needed, and in mint condition. I asked him if the casket was truly as nice as the picture and he assured me that the picture did not do it justice. He was 100% right! The casket was gorgeous and my mother was beautiful! I want to give a very heartfelt Thank You to Scott and Express Casket for helping me in a very difficult time. I will recommend you to everyone!

Reviewer Stars Peggy's Daughter

Reviewer : Jeri Grothues (Wimberley , Texas )

Our mother just passed away on Saturday evening. I spoke at length to Scott and couldn't feel more secure about ordering Mother's casket! When we went to the funeral home and they didn't even have one pink casket (her request) but offered a lavender one for almost $5,000, I became a bit angry as I knew how much they marked them up. I feared buying Mother's final bed online but what we have chosen is a beautiful tribute to her. Thank you Scott and thank you Express Casket for providing a necessity without gouging the grieving public.

Reviewer Stars Excellent Service

Reviewer : Liz (NY, NY)

Excellent & caring service Scott is a real gem. Couldn't have been a more perfect experience under the circumstances.

First things first - you are under no obligation to purchase a casket from a funeral home. And why would you want to, when there are lower-cost, better value options available?

Choosing a casket for a loved one is a very personal decision. When deciding, keep the following in mind:

  • Do you want a wood or metal casket? This choice does not affect the function of the casket in any way.
  • What is your budget? If you want to spend lavishly on a casket then please do so, but if you have a smaller budget there is also a wide range of options available.
  • Now all your choices are based on personal preference. Consider your loved one's favorite colors. Think about their personality - reserved or more flamboyant & expressive? Consider their life - some caskets are made specially with veterans in mind, or mothers, or may have unique artwork & embellishments.

Think about your loved one and the family & friends left behind and you will be able to find the perfect casket to honor them... that is the only consideration that really matters.

Learning More About Funeral Homes

The funeral home industry is extremely large and very profitable. There are over 20,000 funeral homes in the United States and collectively the industry generates over $25 billion in annual revenue. Fees for services are extravagant and markups on products are substantial. So just how do funeral homes continue to charge high costs without delivering equivalent value?

Three corporations dominate the funeral home industry: SCI, Stewart, and Loewen Group, which together account for about 15% of the funeral business in the United States. Your compassionate neighborhood funeral home could owned by one of these corporate giants - they typically buy small funeral homes and operate them under the previous name, to retain the appearance of a small, family-owned business. This allows the funeral homes to set prices as they see fit, without fear of effective competition.

The federal government has stepped in to regulate the industry and some states and local jurisdictions provide additional guidelines to help alleviate the worst abuses, but consumers remain at a disadvantage when planning a funeral due to the unique emotional nature of the process. Funeral homes are notorious for using scare tactics, and we have compiled several of the most common ways that they prey upon the fragile emotions of consumers:

"Don't you want your mother looking her best when she sees your Dad in Heaven?" - Do not be pressured into spending lavishly on burial clothing - dress your loved one as you see fit, and however makes you most happy.

"Of course you want a sealed casket... don't you?" - All caskets for sale are designed to be sealed, do not be scared into purchasing a casket with expensive features you don't need.

"You don't need a casket list... let me show you our floor selection." - Funeral homes rarely put cheap caskets on their showroom floor. Insist on receiving a complete list of all their offerings before viewing models.

"This list is just a guideline - let's talk about our funeral packages." - Packages often contain a laundry of services & products that you either do not need or could purchase much cheaper elsewhere, including the casket. Having a General Price List allows you to track charges for each item and remove those you do not want.

These are just a few of the most common tactics. Be wary, use common sense, and know that your rights as a consumer are protected by law - you are in charge of the funeral, not the funeral home!

A Guide to Discount Caskets

A casket is a major purchase - the average cost is in the neighborhood of $2000, and some extravagant models top $10,000. Accordingly, you should approach purchasing a casket as you would any other expensive item: do some research, shop around, compare prices, and buy from the vendor that gives you the best price & value.

But there are several unique barriers that prevent most people from getting the deal they deserve on a casket purchase. Grief is one of many powerful emotions that buyers must cope with. Spending a lot of money may be used as a measure of love for the departed. There can also be pressure to act quickly. All of these, and more factors, combine to make it easy to overspend on a casket.

So how can you avoid overpaying for a casket? A casket wholesaler or discounter is your best chance at paying a fair price. Some important considerations every consumer should know about purchasing cheap caskets from a discounter:

  • Keep your emotions in check
    Try to put grief aside when shopping for a casket. Do not view looking for a deal as a slight against your loved one who has passed away. Use common sense and be diligent, just as you would when making any other major purchase.
  • If you have the time, use it
    If you are not facing any exceptional time constraints, use the extra time to shop around and compare prices. Get a price from the funeral home, and see how much lower the prices are at a casket wholesaler.
  • The selection is the same
    Discount casket dealers offer the exact same caskets as any funeral home does - this applies to ordering online and in person. Same caskets for sale, same quality, same features, but for much better prices.
  • Ask about specials
    Older models are often offered at even deeper discounts - they are still great caskets, but wholesalers need to make room for new stock. You may also realize solid value from newer models, which might be offered at a discount in order to spur sales.

Funeral Planning Checklist

Planning a funeral is a difficult and emotional task, and the burden of arranging details while coping with grief can be exhausting. We cannot relieve the emotional stress you must be feeling, but we can help you keep track of the many details that could otherwise prove overwhelming.

Here is a thorough checklist of tasks and things to remember when you are planning a funeral:

  • Gather personal information needed for the obituary.
  • Choose a funeral home.
  • Decide if the deceased will be buried or cremated.
  • Select a casket or cremation container.
  • Choose the funeral location and type of funeral service.
  • Apply for required documentation, including death certificate and burial permit.
  • Arrange all details of the visitation - location, schedule, guest list.
  • Choose burial outfit, including jewelry & mementos (not necessary for cremation).
  • Select music and flower arrangements for the funeral service, and select literature to be read.
  • Arrange for funeral transportation (funeral coach, limousine, clergy car, private transport).
  • Choose the clergy or the officiator.
  • Choose & notify the pallbearers.
  • Select which family member or friend is going to perform the eulogy. Additional speakers should be selected, if necessary.
  • Choose a cemetery (if not already chosen by the deceased).
  • Choose a burial or cremation plot (if not already chosen by the deceased).
  • Submit obituary to the appropriate newspapers or publications.

Some additional important considerations:

Pre-planning - If the death was anticipated, many or all of these details may have been pre-arranged. A sudden or unexpected death typically requires more planning.

Accommodating guests - Out-of-towners will appreciate recommendations for places to stay, particularly locations that are close to the service and reception. If you have time for additional planning and you anticipate a large number of visiting guests, you may want to contact a hotel regarding a discounted group rate.

Delegating planning - The details involved in planning a funeral can be overwhelming for just one person. If possible, delegate parts of the planning to a trusted friend or family member, particularly those details that are time or labor-intensive.

The most important thing is to stay composed and remember that planning a funeral should be invested with the same care and diligence that you would in any other circumstance that requires communication, organization, and attention to detail.
