“Although I expect to live many more years I realized that with my unusual size I needed to make arrangements well in advance so my lovely wife Diane would not be left with the added burden of finding a going away box that was big enough for me at the last minute.
Caskets By Design helped me to plan ahead for my funeral by custom building me a wider and longer custom wood casket. By meeting my special needs they took the bite out of the usually high cost of getting a custom made casket by building one for me at a reasonable price.
By having it built in advance of need and storing it in our storage unit I saved at least $1,800 in comparison to another discounted custom built wood casket from a wholesale distributor. The savings in comparison to a custom built metal casket (longer and wider) was nearly $4,000.
I highly recommend Terri and Mike’s service for those who want a dignified yet reasonable approach to an oversize casket for their funeral service.”

More TestimonialsHelpful Info from the Funeral Consumer Alliance
Traditionally, caskets have been sold only by funeral homes. But now, under the Funeral Rule, you can buy a casket from an outside source and have it shipped directly to the funeral home. The Funeral Rule also requires funeral homes to agree to use a casket you bought elsewhere and does not allow them to charge you a fee for using your own.
For many years, the funeral home industry practice was to wrap the cost of the funeral service into the sale price of caskets, with a mark-up of 300-500-700% or more. The average cost of a funeral in the U.S. is ($7,200*) thats almost three times that in Great Britain ($1,650) and more than twice what it is in France ($2,200) or Australia ($2,100).Shipping Note:
Our casket's are shipped via truck freight to the lower 48 US States only, average delivery time is 4-7 business days. We will call you to schedule a delivery time. Delivery can be made directly to any funeral home or business address, with home delivery possible under certain conditions.
