At Colorado Casket Company, we offer an Quality, Affordable solution at a time when you need it the most. Our caskets are American made, unlike what a lot of the funeral homes offer, which are made in China. For funeral homes, caskets are one of their biggest money makers with the largest profit margin of all of their services. Typically the mark-up on caskets can be as high as 400%. A casket is usually the majority of the cost in planning a funeral, and it doesn't need to be. We can help advise you on how to plan a funeral efficiently, economically, and with as little stress as possible. Here are a few simple steps to make this possible when you find yourself planning a funeral for a loved one:
First, Do not tell them you are even thinking about supplying your own casket! Secondly do not reveal if there is a life insurance policy, or the amount, it shouldn't matter! Thirdly call the funeral homes on the phone, do not visit in person. Per the Federal Trade Commission's, Federal Funeral Rule they are required by law to disclose prices over the phone. Let them know you are getting quotes from other funeral homes, without telling them the prices. Next make your choice and then visit in person to sign the contracts, at that point let them know you are supplying the casket from an outside source.
Per the Federal Trade Commission a funeral home MUST accept an outside casket. Don't be fooled into thinking our caskets are a lower quality. Our caskets are not seconds nor discounted caskets, ours are First Quality American Made caskets. Don't be taken advantage of in your time of grief, call Colorado Casket Company and let us help, we are family owned and operated
