The casket is shipped in one of two special cargo compartments under the commercial passenger airplanes (typically American, Delta or United) apart from the other luggage. These two special compartments are where they store bodies and empty caskets. This is how the casket is packaged. First there is a thin layer of Styrofoam, followed by a layer of bubble wrap. Over that are placed large blocks of hard Styrofoam which provide most of the support as well as 5" thick styrofoam caps over both ends. Over that is a double-walled cardboard box and then another double-walled box over that. You can literally beat the box with a baseball bat and not hurt the casket. There is roughly 3-5 inches between the outer box and the inner casket so if the box is ruffled on the outside, the casket will not be scratched or dented 3-5 inches below the box surface. After it gets to the airport the hot-shot courier typically picks up your casket and delivers it directly to the funeral home in his van. We will email you to notify you that the casket has been delivered.

Thank you for all of your help

This casket was ideal and arrived the next day, in plenty of time for the services. It was the correct size; we needed 35" for our sister. Thank you for all of your help.

Great experience from beginning to end

Great experience from beginning to end. We are very happy with our recent casket purchased. Easy to talk to someone and deliver was fast as expected. The casket was in excellent condition and we saved $$$ big bucks by choosing Franklin Copper Oversized

Was reluctant, but that changed

My family and I were reluctant to buy a casket online for our father, but dealing with Joe has been fantastic. Highly recommended!
