There is no greater moneymaker for a funeral home than the Casket.
The markup on Caskets is enormous: 300% – 600%.
75% of all Caskets are metal.
Caskets do not protect the body from decomposition.
“Sealed” “Protective” “Gasketed” or “Burper” Caskets are a Scam. (They actually accelerate decomposition)
Biodegradable Caskets (green burial): there are now many options available.
3rd Party Caskets (Costco, Amazon, WalMart): funeral homes must accept them by law.
Remember, a Funeral Home exists for 2 reasons:
- To embalm a body.
- To sell you a casket.
The Casket: the most expensive purchase you’ll make to use once, never see again, and not even get to enjoy while you’re alive.
