Transporting a Casket

Transporting a deceased individual from their place of death to their final resting place can be done with or without a casket. There are two types of shipping units available for this purpose. The first one is made of pressed board with a cardboard full-cover lid. The deceased person would be placed on a thin foam pad and strapped to the base, which has handles for easy transportation. The second container has a wider base to accommodate a casketed individual and comes with a cardboard lid to protect the casket from any damage during transit.
