Q. What do you need from me after I order?
A. We make every effort to relieve you of logistics burdens – we know you probably have a lot on your mind. SameDay Caskets can handle all details of shipping, delivery, and setup. We can coordinate with the funeral home where necessary. If you have any other questions or needs, our support personnel are just a phone call or an email away.
Q. Why is a GPL so important?
A. A ‘General Price List’ tells you exactly what a funeral home is charging you for services and products. A funeral home must provide you with a GPL, per the Funeral Rule. You can compare prices, eliminate services you do not want, and control your costs.
Q. What if my funeral home tells me it will not accept a casket from an outside vendor?
A. This is illegal – the Funeral Rules stipulate that every funeral home must accept caskets and funeral products from an outside vendor. Additionally, they are not allowed to charge extra fees for use of a casket from another vendor. A casket purchased from SameDay Caskets can be used at any funeral home.
Q. How big is a typical casket?
A. The exterior measurements of the most common size for a casket are about 24″ deep, 27-1/2″ to 30-1/2″ wide, and 81″ in length. We also offer smaller and over-sized caskets for sale.
Q. What other funeral products do you offer?
A. In addition to regular caskets, we also offer cremation caskets, urns, funeral accessories, memory tubes, and more. For complete details, please see our Products Page.
