I would like to buy a really good used casket, not over 5 years old and reasonable priced. I have a used headstone I could trade in.

Ain't no reason a funeral around here should cost over 3,500 dollars and that's about the best of everything. Mark up on caskets are ridiculous around here.

So how much should a casket and funeral cost? How much do they cost elsewhere since you are such an expert.

They said a reasonable cost should be around 3,500 dollars. Looks as though someone has struck a nerve. Truth hurts and some people just can't handle the truth.

You're right. I misspoke. Let me rephrase. Why is $3500 reasonable? How do you determine that? How much should a casket cost?

Hit a nerve because I get tired of seeing people harping on small businesses trying to make a profit. This one just happened to be about funerals.

It's alright to make a profit but lord don't rob people. Have you researched the markup on caskets? You can buy your own casket anywhere from 1,000 dollars and up. What do you think the funeral homes pay wholesale for caskets? CHEAP- CHEAP-CHEAP. The casket is what costs so much for a funeral around here.

If I pay 1,500 for a casket that leaves 2,500 for the funeral home to cover the other costs including the vault. This does not include the head stone.

Also that 1,500 dollar casket I can purchase myself. Now if I purchase the same casket at the funeral home I'll probably pay 6,000 dollars or more.

Those of who do pay for our families funerals are also paying for those who have a funeral and never pay Danny Terry or Ken Gayheart. They get stiffed more than you would think.

They will bury you in your own casket if you have one. So shopping early can save your family some money.:)

Why would you want a vault to protect the casket, make your own casket out of wood. Dust to dust.
