Read what some of our customers had to say about our wood caskets.

“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.”

Casket Facts

Industry-friendly laws and regulations can force consumers to shell out more than they might want to on a casket. While consumers are free to purchase a casket anywhere they like, some states are still trying to keep out competition by outlawing retail casket sales. For many years, the 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. Caskets are still marked up many times the wholesale cost, but funeral services are now billed separately. The average cost of a funeral in the U.S. ($6,500) is almost three times that in Great Britain ($1,650) and more than twice what it is in France ($2,200) or Australia ($2,100). Some of that difference can be attributed to the cost of the casket.

Caskets by Design offers quality caskets at very reasonable prices.
