A lot of people tend to move away from their hometown due to their job. Sometimes due to certain reasons, it is not possible to make it to the funeral to the particular place. So what can be done is, you can have the body transported. Our company is happy to help you with the procedure, here is what it involves:
In this day and age, there are fewer people who live out their entire lives in their hometowns. Which in the event of a death can cause some stress because the family might choose to have the body buried or cremated at their hometown. But this is also raises the question: how to ship a deceased person? At Bergen Funeral we’d like to help answer the question, and break down the process of mortuary shipping.
Where to ship
You have the option of having the deceased ship both domestically or internationally. Some of you might have to move away for work or maybe for your spouse and it may not be possible for you to go back home at the time of the funeral. Or it might be the case that your parents or another family member has settled in a different part of a state or country, but they might have wished to be buried in their hometown. In the time of grief, you might not even know where to start and you might go for the nearest local funeral home which turns out to be really expensive for you. Domestic shipping can be arranged at an affordable price if only a minimum ship out service is contracted for the dispatching funeral home. International shipping can be more costly due to paperwork, translations and different requirements.

Our funeral home arranges everything for you. We understand the importance of time and we are very punctual with our work. Firstly, the body is prepared to be collected from the place of death and shifted to a funeral home. The funeral home will put the body in an appropriate container, a box or a casket. All of the paperwork is handled by us. It includes export or import of human remains to meet the regulations of both the disembarking and receiving country, a certified English translation of the death certificate, written authorization from local authorities to remove the body and a certificate of the embalming accompanying the body if any. We ensure quick transport and try to get you a discount on flights. Once the body is shipped, we will take it from there.
If you find the whole procedure too expensive, you can opt for cremation. It is possible to arrange direct cremation on the spot at quite a lower price and you can have the remains shipped. The remains after cremation are not too heavy and easily portable as compared to a deceased human body. It can be easy for you and save you money.
