Casket Prices: How Much Does a Casket Cost?
Planning for a funeral can be an emotional and financial challenge. The subject matter is often new and unfamiliar to funeral planners, and the process is further complicated by the vast range of options and prices.
Casket prices can be among the most difficult subjects to tackle, as funeral caskets are typically the most expensive items to purchase and there are so many options. Families want to find the best possible casket for sale - one that is expertly built and properly honors their loved one without overwhelming their budget. The choice is not easy, and there is a lot of information to sort through.
What is the Cheapest Casket For Sale on the Market (Inclusive of Shipping)?
Titan Casket builds superior quality caskets to suit every budget. Whereas the average casket price at a funeral home is over $2,000, our casket prices range from $679 for a simple yet dignified Cloth model, to $2,599 and beyond, depending on your size and style preference. Each casket is comparable to, or better quality than, the caskets for sale at your funeral home, and at a fraction of the price. Shipping is free.
Below are some suggested guidelines to follow when comparing casket prices and retailers.
How much does a casket cost online versus the funeral home?
Before meeting with the funeral home, we advise looking at caskets online to get a sense of your requirements and preferences. Are you looking for the least expensive casket available? Perhaps you would like a particular color or style, or anticipate needing a larger size?
Casket prices vary depending on material, size, and finishings. Cloth and simple wood boxes are at the lower end of the spectrum, and prices increase for metal, oversize, and intricately detailed caskets.

Know Your Rights
Funeral homes are required to supply you with a catalog of their goods and services upon request. This document is called the General Price List, or “GPL” and is mandated by the “Funeral Rule” as set forth by the Federal Trade Commission.
Should you decide to purchase a casket from Titan Casket or any other retailer, you have the right to do so without being charged extra fees by the funeral home. Federal law requires that the funeral home accept the casket without making the process burdensome, and at no extra cost to you.
For additional help understanding and exercising your rights, we recommend reviewing the Titan Casket Consumer Advocacy section. There, you will find an explanation of the Funeral Rule, as well as the steps to take if you feel your rights have been violated. We also offer a State-by-State Guide for assistance with local laws and resources.
Compare Your Options
Once you have narrowed down the caskets available from funeral homes and online retailers, it’s a good idea to compare them side-by-side. Are you getting exactly what you want and need? How do the quality and price measure up? Is the casket made in the USA? Does the retailer charge extra for shipping? What are the timing considerations? How does the customer service compare?
At Titan Casket, we are focused on preventing an emotional loss from turning into a financial loss. We stand by the quality of our USA-made caskets, which we deliver to the destination of your choice at no extra charge. By selling directly to consumers, we are able to offer all of this at bargain prices. Before, during, and after your purchase, our customer service team is there to help and inform you every step of the way.
