LastPost makes quality caskets and does not sell through funeral directors - buy from me at LastPost and you get a quality NZ made casket and you save money because no one is adding a 100% + mark up. Legally, you do not need to buy a coffin/casket from a funeral director- you can provide your own.

Campbell Live featured an article on the cost of funerals and you might like to follow this link - http://www.3news.co.nz/Why-are-funerals-so-expensive/tabid/36

I sell direct because most funeral directors will charge a mark up of well over 100% on the coffins they resell which means I can not get a reasonable return on my skills and time, or customers will pay 100% more than they need to!!

I make all of my coffins - from design to finished product - with the utmost care given to detail and quality. They are not assembly line coffins.

LastPost coffins make little impact on the environment. NO nails, NO metal and NO MDF.

This is a very strongly built NZ pine coffin.

The lid has a trim of up-cycled matai, and is is closed using 10mm dowels that pass through the lid into the coffin wall. The family can easily close the coffin themselves.

The carry bars are sturdy, laminated matai and allow the coffin to be carried by eight pall bearers. The 40mm canvas webbing is threaded through the carry bars and pass under the floor of the coffin making it a very strong carrying system and at the same time adding to the strength of the base.

This coffin is finished with a natural hard oil and bee’s wax.

I will deliver free in Auckland City.
