All delivery and shipping charges are non-refundable . Shipments on Saturday, if allowed, will incur extra charges. No deliveries will occur on Sundays or major Holidays.

Shipping and freight is contracted by Seller to many different 3rd party contractors, and failure on the part of the shipping company to deliver at the specified time is not in the control of Seller, and Seller is not liable in any way for this failure beyond the amount collected for freight from Purchaser. Seller will make every effort possible to complete the delivery of casket purchased, but Purchaser releases Seller from any liability for late shipments. Damaged shipments must be held for inspection by the shipping company, and Seller may not be able to provide another exact product within the original time specified. Purchaser agrees to allow Seller a reasonable time to attempt shipment of another casket to arrive before the required service time with no additional charges to the Purchaser. Should Purchaser refuse, Seller is released from all liability to provide another casket in place of the damaged casket.
