THE RENTAL of caskets has taken off in Barbados in a significant way.
And a number of funeral homes are cashing in on this trend as people look for more economical ways to say final goodbyes to their loved ones.
Rather than paying upwards of $4 000 for a locally-made casket and as much as $15 000 for an import, Barbadians can have the same “turnout” for a fraction of the cost. Figures quoted range from $1 500 to $2 500.
However, rentals are only done when the body is to be cremated and there is a memorial service or viewing of the body.
