When it comes to funeral planning, many people are overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done. Not only do they have to give themselves enough time to grieve properly, but they need to ensure their loved one has a well-planned funeral service that they deserve. Your local funeral home and a funeral director can help you during this difficult time, but there will be decisions that you need to make on your own.
From finding the perfect funeral casket to ensuring you get the best deal from the funeral home or crematorium in case if you decided to use a cremation option, planning and arranging a funeral is never easy. While some funeral homes have packages they may provide you, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, wants you to know that when you arrange for a funeral, you have the right to buy a casket, vault, urn, or any other funeral products and services separately. There is a Funeral Rule, which means you are only required to pay for items you purchase from the funeral home. This rule gives more flexibility with funeral arrangements as it's allowed to choose different vendors for different items, and selecting the supplier of their choice.

When it comes to the purchase of a casket or coffin, there are a lot of considerations to keep in mind. There are many finishing options to choose from, be it a metal casket, a wood casket, or one that is made from stainless steel. Additionally, the size of the burialcasket should be thoroughly considered, as some people may need to narrow their search down to include only oversized caskets. Finally, there are additional features to consider, such as whether you'd prefer the casket to have a velvet interior or crepe.
Of course, all of these factors can influence the overall cost of the casket. You want your loved one to have the best casket possible, but you also need to be mindful of the casket price. Your loved one deserves a quality casket and if you read this article, you are in the right place.

Once budget and material are determined, there is another factor that needs to be considered. You will need to decide whether your loved one will be buried or cremated. Majority of caskets and coffins are suited for burial and easily fit to a standard burial vault. If cremation has been chosen, check our cremationcaskets section. Cremationcaskets designed to be cremated with the body so the ashes of both would be put in an urn, or you can choose a funeral casket for the viewing and then a different option for the cremation.
While wooden caskets considered as more traditional and classic, metal burialcaskets are very popular our days. Most of the metal coffins have a special gasket, that works as a seal that will help prevent outside elements from getting inside the casket while it’s in the ground. Usually, people do choose the gasketed caskets if it's necessary to move the deceased to somewhere else. The funeral director in a local funeral home can advise you if you need a gasketed casket or if it's necessary to consider an oversized casket.
