Shipment to Another Location with Burial
If wishes are such that interment is to take place out of town or even in another country, eco can easily coordinate this for you. Whether direct to a cemetery for interment or to a consignee overseas, we can help. We recognize that as humans we are nomads. Retiring in a special place doesn’t mean that you’d want to be kept there forever. eco can repatriate a deceased human anywhere in the world safely and legitimately. We are often called upon to handle repatriation arrangements when death occurs away from home. Our extensive network of trusted professionals can allow shipment home, direct into our care for hometown services to take place.
