Caskets will be more expensive based upon the wood and metals they are made of. A pine casket, for example, will usually be less expensive than one made of mahogany. Steel hardware will be less expensive than copper or bronze. I realize that people work hard and money can be tight. When consumers can purchase a casket from Walmart, Costco, or any other big box store why choose locally? Walmart sells a 20 gauge steel casket for $1109.00 as their least expensive casket. At Habegger Funeral Services we have 20 gauge steel caskets starting at $795.00 with 4 colors to choose from. Save more and buy local!
