Definitions of funeral on the Web: a ceremony at which a
dead person is buried or cremated; "hundreds of people attended his
funeral" ---end copy--- Indeed, it is a formal event
performed for this special occasion - a death of a loved one. There
are funeral ceremonies of gathering the family and friends,
acquaintances at a funeral, where the body is not present. This is a
budgeted event as well, as it does not need a funeral director
So, do not let them tell you which direction you should go in
orchestrating this funeral. It is not all about the casket, or if
the body is present at a funeral. The funeral good-bye, doesn't have
to be so outrageously priced. Both are down-played by others, who
are perhaps unhappy about the loss of added income of you using your
freedom of choice. But knowing about the choices, and getting what
you want, that is the key.
We ship all USA. You have to be a smart shopper
too. Some funeral parlors are upping the 'basic service fee' of
funeral director and staff so much (over $1,400.00)then dropping the
cost of the casket drastically (for them)that they can HIDE a huge
profit in that overhead fee. And in the cost for the vehicles too
($225.00 for a hearse, and $225.00 for a limo- that you will use
just 2 hours??) So, you are really overpaying other places - check
emblaming fees too, and ALL other. Don't shop just on the price of
the casket alone.

There are many ways to have a
meaningful funeral, while keeping in budget. The affordable funeral
will not be less of a grand affair, if you do not overspend on a
casket, or purchase an exorbitant one by name brand. People do not
shop for caskets by brands, which is a good thing. Because only
those that are the 'older' firms, have their foothold deep enough in
the industry, to try to stop competition. We sell USA made caskets,
from suppliers who use quality materials and employ superior
craftsman trades people in the manufacturing of the caskets we
The standard size of a casket is of a length of
84 inches; width 28 inches, and height 23 inches.
However, a 28" casket size has a 26" interior.

caskets online on our Selections page offering our most popular
caskets, however if you have seen another - ask - we can offer it as
well, for a lot less! Delivered all USA. Also, if someone has a
homemade casket (< link for parts and
directions on DIY) for a simple, dignified funeral and
burial, A Team Master's can still provide the burial vault if
needed, at a considerable savings as well - through our
network of local providers.
The funeral is not made by the casket, nor the amount
you spend on one.
But rather, on special loving little things done for
by the lost loved one's family and friends.
The larger cost items in a funeral arrangement are the casket -
but more so is that non-declinable 'basic service fee' of the
mortuary, (which should be 'shopped around' as it runs from $600.00
to over $2,000.00) and then embalming fees. Other than if the
body is crossing state line, or being shipped by air, etc.,
embalming is not required by law except in 3 specific circumstances;
death by infectious disease, a prolonged period of time between
death and burial, or most commonly, a public viewing or wake.
(Funeral home rules, not federal or state. And more so by mortuaries
who can not utilize refrigeration at their facility. In fact,
overseas even with viewing, embalming is not part of the funeral).
If you have a closed casket funeral service, embalming is not
required. Along with the purchase of embalming, is the open casket
viewing - the 'rental' of the parlor for viewing, either once or
twice and then for the funeral service as well. Those added rental
fees add up. The funeral service is complete however, with all that
YOUR plans cover. If the price and basic design of a modest
casket appeal to you, and a funeral service within a certain budget,
then you are among the growing number of consumers who know it is
not being cheap, but living within their means. Just part of a
simple funeral savings strategy plan. "It is not what you earn that
is important, as much as it is what you spend." What makes the
family pleased, that is what is important. There is a movement
in many states for home funerals, no services of any mortician
involved and with a viewing even, using dry ice. Or no viewing,
closed casket service at a church.
Please don't let anyone sway you into spending more for a casket
than what you wish to - or a sales person, mortician use any guilt
or other bad sales tactics to have you overspend. Do not let anyone
tell you getting a casket outside of the funeral home is impossible,
we do it all the time. If you run into anyone who tries to talk you
into up-spending or mention a different brand of casket, it is okay
to be firm and tell them no. If they try to 'haggle' with you, walk
out. Also, inquire if the parlor has refrigeration if you do not
wish embalming. Please know that we can and do offer all makes and
models of caskets, more choices even than at the local parlor- but
at a considerable
