Shipping of Remains: Domestic and International

San Jacinto Valley Mortuary is one of the largest shipping mortuaries in southern California. We ship both domestically and internationally.

You may want to choose to have a service here and then ship the deceased, or you may want a service only at the final destination. Either way, we can help.

You may purchase the casket here or from the receiving funeral director (however, if the casket is purchased here and shipped out of state, there is no sales tax).

Our casket prices are lower than you will find at most funeral homes or casket stores.

International Shipping
International shipping is a specialty that most mortuaries don’t understand. The rules and requirements are different for each country. We have shipped to every continent except Antarctica. Please call us and we will tell you what the requirements are for the country you desire to go to.

We have a package price for international shipping that includes:
        Removal from the place of death in southern California
        Preparation of the body as required by the receiving country
        All paperwork for the death certificate and filing with the county
        Obtaining necessary transit documents from county
        Obtaining a letter of non-contagion, if required
        Obtaining a notarized document stating the preparation of the deceased, if required
        Working with the consulate to obtain permission to ship the deceased. NOTE: Some consulates, depending on the country, require one to four certified copies of the death certificate. Some also require an "apostile" (official certification of signatures) of all documents. This adds about $100 in fees. There may be extra costs for courier services. A few countries also require a translation of documents by an "authorized" translator. If this is required, there will be additional charges.
        Arranging the airline transportation
        Delivery to Los Angeles International Airport
        A 20-guage steel casket that is sealable (required by many countries). We have several to choose from.
        A standard airtray the casket is shipped in (required by the airlines)
Total package price is: $3,840.00
