Starmark Introduces New Transporter Alternative Cremation Container System

Richmond, IN – Starmark® Cremation Products, the country’s leading manufacturer of ceremonial rental casket inserts, has announced the introduction of several new products to its ever evolving product line.  The innovative new Transporter alternative cremation container system, the Bridgeview 27” raised flat top solid wood alternative container viewer and the Ovation Oversize 31” solid wood alternative container viewer are all now available for immediate sale.

The one-of-a-kind Transporter system allows funeral directors to offer their families an economically-priced, stand-alone alternative container, which can easily be converted into a rental casket insert.  Through the use of an interior kit, the Transporter alternative container can become an insert that fits the new Bridgeview alternative container viewer and all 27” ceremonial rental caskets in the Starmark product line.   The Transporter system also offers an oversize version offering the same flexibility that fits the new Ovation Oversize alternative container viewer.

The new Ovation Oversize 31” solid wood alternative container viewer offers funeral director a way to provide families that desire a funeral service, but require a larger size container, a means do so at a very attractive price point.
Starmark Bridgeview with Transporter System Insert
The new Bridgeview solid wood alternative container viewer gives funeral director an attractively priced upgrade from an alternative container and helps to encourage cremation families to move up to a funeral service with the body being present.

With the Transporter system, there is no need for funeral directors to carry both alternative containers and rental casket inserts.  And since the Transporter system offers both a standard model and oversize unit, this helps further reduce the need to carry additional inventory.

“The new Transporter alternative cremation container system provides funeral director with an effective way to merchandise their services,” said Gerald Davis, President of Starmark Cremation Products.  “The Transporter system allows funeral directors to show families the Transporter alternative cremation container and demonstrate how easily and cost-effectively it can be used with an alternative container viewer or ceremonial rental casket.”

The new Bridgeview alternative container viewer gives funeral directors a solid wood casket at a much lower price point.  The attractively-priced Bridgeview encourages informal (Direct, Immediate, Simple or Basic) cremation families to move up to semi-formal services with the body being present.

With the new Ovation Oversize 31” solid wood alternative container viewer, families that wish to have a funeral service using an alternative container viewer, but require a larger size, can now do so.  With the addition of an interior kit, the oversize Transporter alternative cremation container can be upgraded to pair with the Ovation oversize alternative container viewer.

“The addition of the Bridgeview to our product lines provides funeral directors with an attractively-priced upgrade from an alternative container,” added Davis.  “And the Ovation Oversize model now gives funeral directors a way to offer families that require an oversize container the opportunity to have a funeral they never thought they could afford.”
