The offer is up on Done Deal for a ‘lovely oak coffin’ that’s only had ‘one careful owner’.

The seller, going only by his first name, promises that the item is a ‘good solid coffin, very comfortable’ but says that he doesn’t want any ‘time wasters or coffin kickers’.

Speaking to the Irish Sun, Ross said that he found the coffin in an old undertaker’s premises:

“It was left in the building so I brought it home. I found it among the other junk in the old building when we were cleaning it out,” he said.

“I did try it out in work and found it very comfortable - but my legs were sticking out.”

Ross then drove the coffin home, with more than a few worried looks from other motorists.

“I decided to bring it home on the two-hour drive in my trailer amongst the scaffolding and ladders, etc.

“We got a lot of looks on the motorway on the way home!” he told The Sun.

Ross said he's hoping to attract the Halloween market "or someone who could use it for a prop on stage or something".

But buyer beware, the coffin has 'one or 2 scrapes on top from general wear and tear' - let's just hope they're on the outside.
