Know the Law and Keep Funeral Costs Low
Glory Boats celebrates the lives of outdoorsmen and women by providing suitable transportation from our world to the next one. We’re always a phone call away when you’d like to learn more about including a boat casket in your end of life planning. Planning your own end of life celebration is a great way to take a lot of burden off your family at an already difficult time.
Funerals are very expensive, and an average casket costs between $2,000-$5,000. Some caskets can sell for over $10,000 or more. Your family wants the very best for you, and they’re prepared to spare no expense to give you a fitting memorial. On the other hand, by making your own arrangements ahead of time, you can save up to 60-70% off the average costs of a funeral!
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces the Funeral Rule, which makes it possible for you to choose only the goods and services you want or need, and pay only for those you select. This means that you can shop around and compare prices among funeral homes for goods and services like caskets, embalming, and memorial services. You’re also entitled to see a written itemized price list when you visit a funeral home and get a price in writing.
Glory Boats can be used exactly like traditional caskets. They’re designed and built to fit into standard size vaults and grave liners. Funeral homes are required to use a casket of your choice, even if you don’t purchase one from them. Burial vaults are required by most cemeteries, and strongly recommended. When you contact us for a consultation, you will be provided with up-front pricing on all of our products, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
