We asked for a price list so we could compare their casket prices with other vendors. None was offered or available. Having researched this impending purchase, the California law WAS NOT adhered to by this less than professional company, the salesMAN was in bermuda shorts, tried to steer us to a government cemetery even though we told him our parents owned graves close to their home! Their contract reads: ALL SALES ARE FINAL, ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS. We didn't buy there and suggest you compare other alternatives.

The law is: California Business and Professional Code17530.7:

It is unlawful for any person, other than a funeral director as defined in Section 7615, to sell, or offer to sell, on a retail basis, a casket, alternative container, or outer burial container, unless that person does all of the following:
(a) Provides to any person, upon beginning any discussion of
prices, a written or printed list containing, but not necessarily
limited to, the price of all caskets and containers that are normally
offered for sale by that seller. The seller shall also provide a
written statement or list that, at a minimum, specifically identifies
particular caskets or containers by price and by thickness of metal,
type of wood, or other construction, and by interior and color, when
a request for specific information on caskets or containers is made
in person by any individual. This information shall also be provided
over the telephone, upon request.
(b) Places the price in a conspicuous manner on each casket.
Individual price tags on caskets shall include the thickness of metal
and type of wood or other construction, as applicable, in addition
to interior and color information.
(c) Places in a conspicuous manner on each casket represented as having a sealing device of any kind, the following notices in at
least eight-point boldface type: "THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC OR OTHER EVIDENCE THAT ANY CASKET WITH A SEALING DEVICE WILL PRESERVE HUMAN REMAINS."
(d) Furnishes to the buyer prior to the sale, a written or printed
itemized statement of all costs associated with the sale.
(e) Provides to the buyer a statement that includes a notice to
the buyer that he or she may contact the office of the district
attorney in that jurisdiction with any questions or complaints. At a
minimum, the information shall be in eight-point boldface type, and
state the following: "THE SELLER IS NOT A FUNERAL DIRECTOR AND IS NOT LICENSED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS, AND MAY NOT OFFER OR PERFORM FUNERAL SERVICES. STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS PROHIBIT A FUNERAL DIRECTOR FROM CHARGING HANDLING FEES FOR A CASKET SUPPLIED BY ANOTHER PARTY. THE MONEYS RECEIVED BY THE SELLER FOR THE PURCHASE OF A CASKET ARE NOT SUBJECT TO STATE LAW GOVERNING MONEY HELD IN TRUST. THE SELLER IS NOT BOUND BY STATE LAWS OR REGULATIONS THAT GOVERN FUNERAL HOMES AND CEMETERIES. THE PURCHASER ENTERS THIS AGREEMENT AT HIS OR HER OWN RISK. FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT THE OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IN YOUR COUNTY."

Do you think the Los Angeles DA gives a hoot about such a miniscule disregard for comparative transparency...we don't.

Olga at Caskets N More helped with my dad's funeral arrangements a couple of years ago. Within a short period of time she really helped us review all our options, had very competitive pricing and I didn't realize she also had funeral plots, grave markers and other items as well. She never pushed us to go with any items, just presented us all our options and worked in conjunction with our cemetery. It was more than a fitting send off for my dad.

All your funeral needs at low prices they have everything from Caskets, vases, to markers.My family has used them over the last couple of years for several family members. Staff is very helpful and never pushy.
