Because of the oversize dimensions, these must be shipped by common carrier. They are sold in groups of 6 and 12 to meet the 100 lb. minimum weight requirement. Although the shipping ($100-150) will cost almost as much as the caskets, these would be a very affordable option for a church or hospice group to keep on hand considering that the cost per item is only about $25 to $50 including shipping.
