White Casket from Titan Casket

White Caskets – Best Options Reviewed & Rated

Introduction

If you want a white casket for your loved one, but you feel overwhelmed about where to start, this article is meant for you. With four different companies and caskets reviewed, we hope this information helps make your search a little easier.

We use the word “casket” and not “coffin” in this article. While often used interchangeably, they mean two very different things.

Where’s the Best Place to Buy a White Casket?

Your best option is to purchase online.

While funeral homes and other casket retailers offer various selections, options for white caskets are seldom available. White is not a conventional color for a casket, so sellers focus on the more common choices. For metal caskets, darker colors like blue are more popular. And wood caskets are most often stained to enhance the natural wood grain.

In this review, we shortlisted four online retailers that offer white caskets and ranked them according to a variety of factors, including cost, accessibility, design, selection and customization. They are:

  1. Trusted Caskets
  2. Titan Casket
  3. Overnight Caskets
  4. Fast Caskets

These online retailers offer similar quality caskets that you will find offered directly from funeral homes. But the online sellers are able to offer a larger variety and lower prices because of less overhead costs.

Shipping

Each of these online retailers has a free shipping service included in the price. Some have faster delivery times than others, which we discuss below.

Gauge

All caskets listed have 20-gauge steel construction and are in available in standard sizes. We recommend 20 gauge over 18 gauge. (18 gauge is thicker and more expensive, but extra strength serves no practical purpose.)

Couch

All caskets are half couch as well, which is more popular than full couch—especially for steel caskets.

Gasketed Metal Caskets

The gasket is what allows a metal casket to be hermetically sealed (airtight). Our top three choices have gaskets while the final does not. Wooden caskets do not have gaskets—in fact, wood caskets cannot have gaskets—which is why this isn’t a problem. Gaskets increase the lifetime of the casket and protect the entombed corpse from dirt, water, etc.

It is a factor, however, and something to be aware of. Any deceased human body must be in an airtight container (either a gasket casket or a Ziegler case) to be transported across certain borders and internationally.

Casket Sizes

All caskets listed are considered standard size, though that varies between manufacturers. If you’re uncertain what size you need, read our comprehensive guide to casket sizes.

Fast Caskets – Heritage White Casket

This casket is a solid alternative to the top three. It still delivers with its overall build and simple appearance.

What sets this casket apart from the others is its silver hardware. If you are not a fan of gold details and you would prefer a simpler design, this white casket is a good option. However, among the four caskets reviewed, this is the only one that does not include a rubber gasket.

Fast Caskets offer air shipping. Their standard delivery time is only 1 to 2 days. If you need the casket urgently or would prefer to have it shipped via air, you can get this option.

This white casket with silver hardware costs $1,195.

Buying Reminders

Most casket purchases involve a phone call to confirm the delivery time, location, and other order details—this is a big purchase, after all.

Always remember the FTC’s Funeral Rule that guarantees your right to purchase a casket not sold by your funeral home. Your funeral provider cannot refuse any casket purchased elsewhere and they cannot charge you a fee for doing so or receiving it.
