For various reasons, including environmental concerns, personal preferences, even religious values, many families are inclined to purchase cardboard caskets online. However, at the last minute, if there is no time to await ground delivery, they may give up on the idea. Ordering pre-need will give you peace of mind and allow you to take advantage of the lowest delivery costs. (If you have already selected the funeral home, UPS can deliver the casket to the designated location and the staff there can take delivery).
