    Perfect urn!
    October 7, 2021
    This ammo box urn totally represent my husband first love of guns and ammo. This was originally only going to serve as a temporary urn until I could get a different one due the time crunch. However, when I saw it for the first time I was in love with it. I knew my husband would love this. It is now his home forever. Mainely Urns staff was fast, friendly, and caring and ensured me I would have the urn as soon as possible and they delivered! Thank you Mainely Urns!
    • Awesome product, friendly and compassionate service, and the price point was good.
    • Nothing to report!

    Fantastic Urn for My Dad
    April 19, 2022
    I purchased this urn for my dad, and it arrived in the nick of time. It was absolutely gorgeous, and looked so amazing on his memorial table at the funeral home. It was in perfect condition, even more pristine than I imagined.
    All of dad's friends and family commented how beautiful and unique, and so personal this urn was. The funeral home asked me where I got it, so I've referred them to Mainely Urns.
    This is absolutely perfect for a veteran's memorial service. If my dad were still with us, he would have totally loved it.
    I could not be happier with my choice.
    • Absolutely perfect- engraving is on point. Photo came out well. Unique product. Product arrives exactly as described, even better than I imagined. Loved the personalization options.
    • It was absolutely stunning and a perfect way to memorialize my dad. I would be interested in ordering a duplicate as a keepsake, as Dad is buried in this urn. I think it would also be an ideal keepsake box.
    • Very unique and a wonderful way to honor any veteran.
    • You may want to order this early as it takes a bit to ship.
    • Website doesn't show customers an overnight option. In my situation the urn arrived 15 minutes before Dad's visitation so I was able to zip home and get it since I live 5 minutes from the funeral home.
    • UPS also changes the delivery dates and times on their whim so watch out. UPS will absolutely not deliver earlier, funeral or not.

    I'm a Veterans Service Officer and I was talking with a surviving spouse regarding her deceased husband. She shared with me a picture of the Ammo Can Cremation Urn and I shared the information with my son who had the ashes from his Father's cremation. We sent in the picture and we were both very pleased with the results. A very satisfied customer. Eric & Alethia Gore.

    Excellent Product
    February 10, 2021
    After we decided on cremation, we talked about the type of urn Dad might want. We immediately thought 'ammo can'. Sure, we have ammo cans around...and we could've used one. When I googled ammo can urn, Mainely Urns came up. As we poked around, we were immediately drawn to the military engraving we could add to the ammo can, and we knew we found the perfect urn. Paige and I communicated about the urn and expedited shipping. She also got the proof to me SO quickly. Receiving the urn was...difficult and came with a renewed sense of finality. It also came with a sense of peace and comfort, as it truly represented so much of who Dad was. The engraving, the detail, the clean lines... it is an excellent product. I would rate the urn, the customer service, and the company overall with 10...or 100... stars if I could. Alas, I can only choose 5. So 5 it is. Thanks!

    The best during the worst of times
    May 2, 2020
    I had to place an order for my younger brother who passed during the corona virus shut down. The Mainly Urn website basically warned that they were short on staff but were working hard to complete orders. I got my order promptly and much quicker than I expected even during normal times. When I received my order I noticed it had been engraved instead of the emblem placed (a very tired engraver - no big deal). I emailed them and saw they were closed for a much needed short break that week. Not expecting to hear anything until the following week, I received a call and emails fixing the problem right away and all was set. The emblem arrived and I put it on in a few days and I applied it to the box. This is an ammo box so not much to review on that other than it was in stellar new condition. The engraving was just as shown in the example and done very well.

    I highly recommend this professional and trustworthy company to take care of your needs for your loved one.

    Army Ammo Can was SUPERB! Engraving was Beautiful!
    April 11, 2019
    I ordered my father's urn (Army Ammo Can) and my order was confirmed, communication was EXCELLENT, the order was processed, and shipped ASAP. I got it 2nd day air and the price was excellent, the product was amazing. You guys did a stellar job on the can. The engraving was beautiful. My brother and I cried because of how perfect this was. You created a talking piece at my fathers service. Everyone thought this was the coolest final resting place. The urn was wrapped in stretch plastic, covered in bubble wrap and packed tightly as well as the box was taped up everywhere....and it was raining the day it was delivered, I don't know who, but my package was placed into a clear bag so the box didn't get wet... You can tell you guys care! Thank you!

    I want to thank you for making such a honorable and precious urn for my father. His ashes were laid to rest in a Military Cemetery in Philadelphia, PA. The quality of the urn was top notch. It meant so much to our family to have our father's ashes placed in such an honorable container.

    I saw this urn online when looking for something for my father. I had anticipated his funeral home would have some military choices so I hadn't planned ahead much. I saw this one online and loved it. I called and asked to have it rushed and they did an amazing job. I can't recall the representative's name but she was fantastic. They got it to me very quick and it is high quality. I couldn't have been happier with it and got many compliments on it.

    I had a fantastic experience with this company. Great service! When I recieved the ammo can urn, I could not believe the quality. We were able to customize with a special forces insignia making it all that more appropriate in honoring my father in law's service. We recieved several compliments at the memorial service.

    The urn was received in 2 weeks. I couldn't be happier it is exactly what I wanted and is good quality for the price. Price and quality are pretty fair both ways in my opinion. Wish shipping was a bit quicker but wasn't horrible and the product was excellent. Exactly as advertised and what you see is what you get.
    • Great product.
    • Shipping time could be improved.

    Was trying to find something fitting for my husband.
    September 16, 2016
    My husband was in the 101 Airborne, and a hunter and sports shooter. When traveling he always had ammo cans in the van. When someone suggested that I check on line to find an urn, I was surprised, but so glad they did, this could not have been for perfect for him. Thank you for having them and thank fot your prompt service.
