High Quality Coffins & Caskets Personalised to the Individual

At Carried away our focus is to support and supply the best experience that we can to our customers, we are not just selling boxes. Families find that assembling and personalising one of our coffins or caskets is an important part of their grieving process. It offers loved ones the opportunity to truly say goodbye, reminisce, find comfort in working with others and to begin on their healing journeys. 

We offer our coffins in any state, from bare inside and out to painted and internally lined. We are strong believers that you should not have to pay for anything that you do not need or want, which is why we offer our coffins in bare form and allow you to choose which extras you would like.
It’s all up to you, and we’re more than happy to help you with your purchase decisions if required. You can know with confidence that we will never try to sell you something against your wishes. 

Bespoke Coffin Quotation and Selection Process

Our coffin selector process offers you all the options that we have, letting you choose exactly what you wish for your coffin, while giving you an up-to-date quote as you move through the options. To get a quote, press the "save cart" button after selecting your address or pickup option.

Or you could instead select from our preselected packages that allow for a one click purchase. 

The pricing of these packages is exactly what that coffin would have cost if it had been specified using the coffin selector process, but it is much quicker to make your purchase by using the packages.

Below, you will find a compilation of commonly asked questions to provide you with quick answers.

Is the flat Pack easy to assemble?

Yes, Flat packs are easy to assemble, there are only 5 panels (apart from the lid) and they will only go together one way. We have detailed assembly instructions and you are encouraged to check out our coffin assembly video further down this page.

How long does it take for my coffin to get to me?

That depends on where you are in New Zealand. For orders received before 9:00am, we can generally get your coffin on the truck the same day, unless you have asked us to paint or stain it. For orders after 9:00 am, we will dispatch the following day. Freight to North Island destinations is usually 1-2 business days after dispatch and to South Island destinations, 3-4 business days. We can request urgency for you, which means the freight company will pull out all the stops and will usually deliver the next day within islands. For more information contact us for details.

How much weight will the coffin hold?

We have done testing to prove that all of our coffins and caskets will hold over 600 Kg without failing, however we only rate them at 200Kg, which gives a good factor of Safety.

What are the rules for coffins and funerals?

Other than a couple of forms that need to be filled out and the requirement for a body to be unable to be viewed from out side the vehicle transporting it, there are no rules about death and funerals, despite the urban myths. You can do as much or as little of the work to get your loved one prepared as you choose. Most undertakers will be happy to work with you to do anything that you don’t want to do or don’t feel comfortable doing. If the undertaker that you approach does not seem to want to do what you would like, my suggestion is try someone else, they are just telling you that their profit is more important to them than you are.

Can you deliver to a rural address?

Yes we can, but it can be quite expensive and may delay the delivery. You can contact us to find out what is involved in your situation and then choose to either pay the extra or have your consignment delivered to an address in town for free, and pick it up from there. There are usually several businesses in each town who are happy to act as a drop off point.

What tools do I need to assemble a flat pack?

All tools that you need are included in the flatpack.
