A shipout, also known as a repatriation or transfer of remains, is the process of transporting the deceased from one location to another for their final arrangements. This service is typically required when someone passes away in a location away from their home, and their family wishes to bring them back for burial or cremation.
During a shipout, the funeral home or director will work with transportation companies to ensure that the deceased is transported safely and respectfully. This may involve obtaining necessary permits and coordinating with funeral homes in the destination location to ensure a smooth transition.
Shipout services can be customized to meet the specific needs of each family, including transportation mode, timing, and additional funeral services. By providing families with the opportunity to honor their loved one's wishes, a shipout can help bring closure and peace during a difficult time.
