Transporting cremated human remains is simpler by virtue of the fact of the size of the container and that the remains are sterile.
For domestic transportation, whether you drive, fly or take a train, you will need to have the basic paperwork on hand: transportation permit and a certified death certificate. Most major air carriers have no restrictions on carrying (or checking) cremated remains on the planes, other than passing the security checks. For this reason, it is recommended that you use the temporary plastic urn for transportation instead of an urn you purchase. The plastic urn will usually pass the security check with no problems.
We can help you coordinate with a funeral home at your destination, but for cremated remains, it is not required if your final disposition will not involve the services of a funeral director.
For international transportation of cremated remains, the process is also easier. However, it is always wise to check with us or the country's consulate to determine current regulations regarding bringing cremated remains into the country. Typically the same basic documentation will be required.
We often ship cremains via United States Postal Service, this fee normally cost $125.00 which includes the document procurement fee for mailing.
