|There are several choices of caskets and urns represented on the following pages (many of them quite unusual). There is even a new alternative available for those seeking something different; rather than being buried or cremated, you can now have your ashes made into a diamond by a company called LifeGem. All of the caskets and urns on these pages can be ordered on line or by mail, and you can have them delivered to your local funeral home at no extra cost to you.
I urge you to look at these selections because;
They are not available through most funeral homes -
Prices are very reasonable - WOOD CASKETS STARTING AT $395.00 -
18 GAUGE STEEL CASKETS FOR $2300.00 -
They are beautiful and of the same quality that you will find at anywhere!
Below is just a small sampling of what each company has to offer. I'm partial to the wood caskets like they made years ago, "Just Call Me Old Fashioned". Put me in a pine box and nail the lid on! Who needs a casket made of solid gold?
The Federal Trade Commission of the US Government requires funeral homes to
accept merchandise from outside vendors. There are specific rules listed below that funeral homes must follow. They may not alter routine charges based on acceptance of outside merchandise. They may not require the family to be present at the time of delivery. They may not alter their prices in any way to penalize you if you wish to bring in outside merchandise. They may not charge any fee for handling or inspection that would discourage third party vendors of caskets, vaults, monuments or virtually any funeral merchandise. They may not use any form of pressure or duress to discourage you from using a third party vendor.
If you have a problem concerning funeral matters, it is best to try to resolve it first with the funeral director. If you continue to be dissatisfied, the Funeral Consumer's Alliance may be able to advise you on how best to resolve your issue. You can also contact your state or local consumer protection agencies (State Attorney General and Better Business Bureau).
You can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by contacting the Consumer Response Center by telephone, toll-free, at 1-877-382-4357); TDD: 202-326-2502; by mail: Consumer Response Center, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington DC, 20580; or on their website. Although the Commission cannot resolve individual problems for consumers, it can act against a company if it sees a pattern or possible law violations.
