What Types Of Coffins Are Sold At Costco?

Although Costco Wholesale may periodically change products, currently, they offer half-couch caskets on their website.

A half-couch casket, as opposed to a full couch, has its lid split in the middle to allow half of the body to be displayed during open-casket visitation.

Here are the types of caskets that Costco sells: 

Solid Wood Casket

You will find two caskets made of solid poplar wood at Costco. One wood casket option is appropriate for both open-casket visitation and cremation.

However, note that there is no specification that the casket is metal-free, as may be required by some religious groups. 

Eighteen-Gauge Steel Casket

Costco sells eighteen-gauge caskets in a variety of colors, silver and blue, with the lord’s prayer inside the lid.

Steel caskets are measured in terms of the thickness of the material. For example, an eighteen-gauge steel casket means that eighteen sheets have been stacked against each other to form an inch.

How Long Does It Take To Deliver A Coffin From Costco?

Costco delivers coffins in three business days as long as orders are made before 10 am PST. For instance, if you place an order before 10 am on Monday, expect the coffin to be delivered on Thursday.

However, if you miss the 10 am deadline, the order will be pushed the following business day, so expect delivery on Friday.

  • Orders placed on Wednesday 10.00 AM PST will arrive on Monday 
  • Orders placed on Thursday 10.00 AM will arrive on Tuesday 
  • Orders placed on Friday 10.00 AM will arrive on Wednesday

Costco advises customers to call before ordering to verify availability and shipping details.

Other factors that can lead to delay include unforeseen bad weather and state of emergencies.

Additionally, Costco only allows caskets to be returned because of cosmetic and freight damages from shipping.
