Rental caskets. What do you think?

Is a rental casket a good cost-saving option?  What if you want to have a traditional casket at a viewing or funeral but don’t want to purchase a casket.

Rental Casket Basics

A rental casket is a casket that has a removable interior. The body is placed in a simple wooden box and the box is placed inside the casket, giving the appearance that the body is actually in the casket. In fact, the body never touches the casket, and the wooden box is easily removed after the service. The body can then be buried or cremated in the simple wooden box, and the funeral home can re-use the rental casket.

Reasons For Using A Rental Casket

Purchasing a casket can be a major expense, and many people either don’t have the means to pay for a casket or would prefer not to spend such a large sum of money. Using a rental casket can also be seen as an environmentally friendly option, as the rental casket is re-used many times, as opposed to a traditional casket, which is used only once.
